Personnel Board, sitting as members of the Board only when matters of interest to their respec- 
tive Departments are under consideration. The duties of the Board of Foreign Service Person- 
nel, under Executive Order No. 5642, of June 8, 1931, are: to submit to the Secretary of State for 
approval lists of Foreign Service officers in which all Foreign Service officers shall be graded in 
accordance with their relative efficiency and value to the Service; to recommend promotions in 
the Foreign Service, and to furnish the Secretary of State with lists of Foreign Service officers who 
have demonstrated special capacity for promotion to the grade of minister; to submit to the Sec- 
retary of State for his approval and for transmission thereafter to the President, the names of 
those officers and employees of the Department of State who, after five years of continuous serv-
