It excludes appointments to executive departments and to regulatory and other boards and commissions, which are covered in other reports. A profile of each agency tracks the agency's nominations, providing information on Senate activity (confirmations, rejections, returns to the President, and elapsed time between nomination and confirmation) as well as further related presidential activity (including withdrawals and recess appointments). The profiles also identify, for each agency, positions requiring Senate confirmation, the incumbents in those positions as of the end of the 110th Congress, and the pay levels of those officials."
