22 U.S. Code § 3310 - Employment of United States Government agency personnel
Any agency of the United States Government employing alien personnel on Taiwan may transfer such personnel, with accrued allowances, benefits, and rights, to the Institute without a break in service for purposes of retirement and other benefits, including continued participation in any system established by the laws of the United States for the retirement of employees in which the alien was participating prior to the transfer to the Institute, except that employment with the Institute shall be creditable for retirement purposes only to the extent that employee deductions and employer contributions, as required, in payment for such participation for the period of employment with the Institute, are currently deposited in the system’s fund or depository.
Employees of the Institute shall not be employees of the United States and, in representing the Institute, shall be exempt from section 207 of title 18.
 So in original. Probably should be “which”.
