The provision is consistent with the requirements in the Budget Control Act of 2011 for Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism designations by the President.

    References in this explanatory statement to ``conferees'' are deemed to be references to the Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and references to the ``conference agreement'' are deemed, in the case of division A, to be references to the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2013, and in the case of division B, to be references to the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2013.

The following exception to the above definition shall apply: for the military personnel and the operation and maintenance accounts, for which the term ``program, project, and activity'' is defined as the appropriations accounts contained in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act.

    At the time the President submits the budget for fiscal year 2014, the Department of Defense is directed to transmit to the congressional defense committees budget justification documents to be known as the ``M-1'' and ``O-1'' which shall identify, at the budget activity, activity group, and sub- activity group level, the amounts requested by the President to be appropriated to the Department of Defense for military personnel and operation and maintenance in any budget request, or amended budget request, for fiscal year 2014.

    In carrying out any Presidential sequestration, the Department of Defense and related agencies shall conform to the definition for ``program, project, and activity'' set forth above except that military personnel accounts will be exempt from sequestration per the notification made by the Director of the Office of Management and Budget on July 31, 2012.

    CLASSIFIED ANNEX Adjustments to classified programs are addressed in the accompanying classified annex.

    CONGRESSIONAL SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS Items for which additional funds have been provided as shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' are congressional special interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414). Each of these [[Page H1030]] items must be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the stated amount, as specifically addressed in the explanatory statement.

    REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue to follow the reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts as specified in the report accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2008 Department of Defense Appropriations bill (House Report 110-279). For operation and maintenance accounts, the Department of Defense shall continue to follow the reprogramming guidelines specified in the conference report accompanying H.R. 3222, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2008. The dollar threshold for reprogramming funds shall remain at $15,000,000 for operation and maintenance; $20,000,000 for procurement; and $10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.

    Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional defense committees annual DD Form 1416 reports for titles I and II and quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of this Act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or research, development, test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These thresholds are cumulative from the base for reprogramming value as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers into or out of an operation and maintenance (O-1), a procurement (P-1), or a research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified threshold, the Department of Defense must submit a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

    FUNDING INCREASES The funding increases outlined in the tables for each appropriation account shall be provided only for the specific purposes indicated in the tables.

    SHIP MODERNIZATION, OPERATIONS AND SUSTAINMENT FUND As detailed in House Report 112-493 and Senate Report 112- 196, the conferees remain concerned with the Navy's proposal to prematurely retire capable and relevant ships with over 100 years of remaining service life following an initial investment of no less than $11,600,000,000 in current fiscal year 2012 dollars.

    Therefore, the conferees recommend denying these proposed retirements and direct the Secretary of the Navy to retain this force structure in its entirety. The conferees recommend full funding, as identified by the Navy, to man, operate, sustain, upgrade, and modernize only CG-63, CG-64, CG-65, CG- 66, CG-68, CG-69, CG-73, LSD-41, and LSD-46 in the ``Ship Modernization, Operations and Sustainment Fund'', as specified elsewhere in this conference agreement. The conferees recommend full funding for all known requirements only for these specific platforms for the next two fiscal years, and provide the Secretary of the Navy the authority to transfer funds from the ``Ship Modernization, Operations and Sustainment Fund'' to the appropriate appropriation accounts in the year of execution following 30 day prior notification to the congressional defense committees. The conferees direct funds to be transferred in accordance with the requirements previously identified to the congressional defense committees by the Navy and further direct that any deviation from those requirements shall be fully and clearly identified to the congressional defense committees prior to the initiation of any such transfer. The conferees believe that this approach provides the fiscal relief required by the Navy to maintain this force structure and allows the Navy sufficient time to plan and budget for this force structure in future budget submissions.

    Additionally, the conferees direct the Comptroller General to review the Navy's methodology and analysis regarding its decommissioning proposal, to include an analysis of the extent to which readiness metrics, maintenance, and inspection data; operating and support costs; and cost metrics related to initial and proposed curtailed service lives were considered. This review shall also address the extent to which decommissioning costs and any costs for maintaining or acquiring like capabilities were considered, the extent to which combatant command requirements were taken into account when the proposal was made, and the impact of the reduced fleet size on the Navy's ability to meet operational and personnel tempo goals and maintenance requirements. The results of this review should be submitted to the congressional defense committees not later than 180 days after the enactment of this Act.

    In addition, the USS Port Royal (CG-73) incurred significant damage following a grounding incident in 2009. Following the incident, the ship was repaired and has since completed a deployment. However, while the Navy claims that the ship never completely recovered from the grounding, the Navy has failed to provide adequate analysis and cost data on the structural condition of the USS Port Royal. Therefore, the conferees direct the Secretary of the Navy to carry out an independent structural assessment of the Port Royal that includes a comparative structural assessment to other cruisers of the same class. The independent review shall provide a detailed cost estimate to repair the ship and how that estimate differs from the cost to repair other cruisers of the same class, including what issues would be corrected during planned maintenance availabilities. The conferees further direct that this independent assessment be certified by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Both the independent review and the GAO certification should be submitted to the congressional defense committees not later than 180 days after the enactment of this Act.

    FORCE STRUCTURE The conferees agree to include a provision that prohibits the Air Force from using funds made available by this Act to retire, divest, realign, or transfer aircraft, or to disestablish or convert units, with an exception for actions proposed in the fiscal year 2013 budget request affecting C- 5, C-17, and E-8 aircraft, and their associated units.

    The conferees do not agree to require the Air Force to submit cost-benefit analyses for the force structure proposals in the fiscal year 2013 budget request, as proposed by the House. However, the conferees expect that any future force structure proposals submitted by the Air Force will be transparently and comprehensively justified.

    CONFERENCES The conferees agree to not retain a reporting requirement as established in House Report 112-493 accompanying the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2013, which directs the Inspector General to provide reports to the congressional defense committees on conferences.

    TREATY COMPLIANCE The conferees believe compliance with nuclear arms control treaties is vital to our national security. The Secretary of Defense is directed to notify the congressional defense committees if any parties with which the United States has signed a nuclear arms control treaty are violating or acting inconsistently with the terms of that treaty.

    BASE REALIGNMENT AND CLOSURE The conferees do not support further rounds of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC). As such, there are no funds included in this Act for new BRAC activities.

    TITLE I--MILITARY PERSONNEL The conference agreement provides $127,533,073,000 in Title I, Military Personnel, instead of $128,462,794,000 as proposed by the House and $127,502,463,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [[Page H1031]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.001 [[Page H1032]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.002 [[Page H1033]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.003 [[Page H1034]] PERMANENT CHANGE OF STATION EFFICIENCIES The conferees recommend a total reduction of $146,793,000 in the Permanent Change of Station (PCS) budgets for program efficiencies. The conferees recognize that potential cost savings could be found in the PCS program. The conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness) to conduct a review of the PCS program to identify potential efficiencies and to submit a report to the congressional defense committees not later than 180 days after the enactment of this Act on its findings. The conferees understand that each of the Services have increased time on station requirements but that the Services are not meeting these goals. As such, the report should include a review of the reasons that the Services have not met the increased time on station goals and a plan to achieve them, including the budget efficiencies that can be gained by increased tour lengths. Furthermore, the report should consider the potential impact of increased tour lengths on servicemembers' job performance and on morale and quality of life for servicemembers and their families. It should also include how a change in policy would impact promotion and professional development opportunities, personnel readiness, and quality of life issues for servicemembers serving in hardship or overseas locations.

    COMPOSITE PAY RATES For a number of years, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) has used the Department of Defense's composite pay rates in its military personnel end strength analysis to estimate the financial impact of work year variances on the Services' military personnel budget requests. Although this information has been important to the congressional defense committees in their budget analyses, the conferees believe that GAO's estimates would be more useful if the analysis was made available earlier in the budget process. Therefore, to improve the timeliness of the GAO analysis, the conferees direct that the Services' composite budget pay rates should be reviewed, approved, and published not later than 30 days after the President's budget request is submitted to the Congress.

The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.028 [[Page H1060]] REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE ACCOUNTS The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue to follow the reprogramming guidelines specified in the conference report accompanying H.R. 3222, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2008. Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming funds shall remain at $15,000,000 for operation and maintenance accounts.

    Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional defense committees annual DD Form 1416 reports for service and defense-wide accounts in titles I and II of this Act. Further, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to submit the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414) for each of the fiscal year 2013 appropriations accounts not later than 60 days after the enactment of this Act. The Secretary of Defense is prohibited from executing any reprogramming or transfer of funds for any purpose other than originally appropriated until the aforementioned report is submitted to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees.

    The Secretary of Defense is directed to use the normal prior approval reprogramming procedures to transfer funds in the Services' operation and maintenance accounts between O-1 budget activities in excess of $15,000,000. In addition, the Secretary of Defense should follow prior approval reprogramming procedures for transfers in excess of $15,000,000 out of the following budget sub-activities: Army: Maneuver units Modular support brigades Land forces operations support Force readiness operations support Land forces depot maintenance Base operations support Facilities Sustainment, Restoration, and Modernization Navy: Aircraft depot maintenance Ship depot maintenance Facilities Sustainment, Restoration, and Modernization Marine Corps: Depot maintenance Facilities Sustainment, Restoration, and Modernization Air Force: Primary combat forces Combat enhancement forces Combat communications Facilities Sustainment, Restoration, and Modernization Operating forces depot maintenance Mobilization depot maintenance Training and recruiting depot maintenance Administration and service-wide depot maintenance Air Force Reserve: Depot maintenance Air National Guard: Depot maintenance Finally, the Secretary of Defense should follow prior approval reprogramming procedures for transfers in excess of $15,000,000 into the following budget sub-activity: Operation and Maintenance, Army National Guard: Other personnel support/recruiting and advertising With respect to Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide, proposed transfers of funds to or from the levels specified for defense agencies in excess of $15,000,000 shall be subject to prior approval reprogramming procedures.

    MILITARY INFORMATION SUPPORT OPERATIONS The conference agreement includes $187,200,000 for Department of Defense military information support operations, instead of $170,100,000 as proposed by the House and $228,600,000 as proposed by the Senate. Of the total amount, the conference agreement includes $32,400,000 in title II and $154,800,000 in title IX of this division. The allocation of funding by combatant command and funding levels for certain programs is specifically delineated in the classified annex accompanying this Act. Those items shall be considered congressional special interest items and be subject to normal reprogramming procedures. The conferees reiterate the direction in House Report 112-493 regarding congressional budget justifications and reporting requirements for military information support operations.

    SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION The conferees are aware of a proposal to establish a Special Operations Command National Capital Region (SOCOM- NCR) entity. While no funds were requested for this activity in either the fiscal year 2012 or fiscal year 2013 budget submissions, the conferees understand that SOCOM began this initiative using fiscal year 2012 Overseas Contingency Operations funds. Unfortunately, few details have been provided regarding the basis for this proposal and the expected efficiencies. Therefore, the conferees direct that no funds made available in this Act shall be used for the SOCOM-NCR until 30 days after the congressional defense committees have received a copy of the Secretary of Defense's waiver of Section 8018 of this Act and a report which describes the purpose of, and activities to be performed by the SOCOM-NCR, an explanation of the impact of this proposal on existing activities at SOCOM headquarters, and a detailed, by fiscal year, breakout of the staffing and costs associated with its establishment over the future years defense program.

    OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, ARMY The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [[Page H1061]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.029 [[Page H1062]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.030 [[Page H1063]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.031 [[Page H1064]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.032 [[Page H1065]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.033 [[Page H1066]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, NAVY The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.034 [[Page H1067]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.035 [[Page H1068]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.036 [[Page H1069]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.037 [[Page H1070]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, MARINE CORPS The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.038 [[Page H1071]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.039 [[Page H1072]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, AIR FORCE The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.040 [[Page H1073]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.041 [[Page H1074]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.042 [[Page H1075]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.043 [[Page H1076]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.044 [[Page H1077]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, DEFENSE-WIDE The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.045 [[Page H1078]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.046 [[Page H1079]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.047 [[Page H1080]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.048 [[Page H1081]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, ARMY RESERVE The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.049 [[Page H1082]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.050 [[Page H1083]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, NAVY RESERVE The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.051 [[Page H1084]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.052 [[Page H1085]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, MARINE CORPS RESERVE The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.053 [[Page H1086]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.054 [[Page H1087]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, AIR FORCE RESERVE The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.055 [[Page H1088]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.056 [[Page H1089]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, ARMY NATIONAL GUARD The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.057 [[Page H1090]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.058 [[Page H1091]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.059 [[Page H1092]] OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, AIR NATIONAL GUARD The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.060 [[Page H1093]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.061 [[Page H1094]] UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE ARMED SERVICES The conference agreement provides $13,516,000 for the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Services, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION, NAVY The conference agreement provides $310,594,000 for Environmental Restoration, Navy, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION, AIR FORCE The conference agreement provides $529,263,000 for Environmental Restoration, Air Force, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION, DEFENSE-WIDE The conference agreement provides $11,133,000 for Environmental Restoration, Defense-Wide, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION, FORMERLY USED DEFENSE SITES The conference agreement provides $287,543,000 for Environmental Restoration, Formerly Used Defense Sites, as proposed by the Senate, instead of $237,543,000 as proposed by the House.

    OVERSEAS HUMANITARIAN, DISASTER, AND CIVIC AID The conference agreement provides $108,759,000 for Overseas Humanitarian, Disaster, and Civic Aid, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

    COOPERATIVE THREAT REDUCTION ACCOUNT The conference agreement provides $519,111,000 for the Cooperative Threat Reduction Account, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

    DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ACQUISITION WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT FUND The conference agreement provides $50,198,000 for the Department of Defense Acquisition Workforce Development Fund, as proposed by the House, instead of $720,000,000 as proposed by the Senate.

    TITLE III--PROCUREMENT The conference agreement provides $100,350,714,000 in Title III, Procurement, instead of $102,512,191,000 as proposed by the House and $97,635,496,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [[Page H1095]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.062 [[Page H1096]] SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS Items for which additional funds have been provided as shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' are congressional special interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the stated amount, as specifically addressed in the explanatory statement.

    REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR ACQUISITION ACCOUNTS The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue to follow the reprogramming guidance as specified in the report accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2008 Department of Defense Appropriations bill (House Report 110- 279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and $10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.

    Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional defense committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of this Act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with the guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or research, development, test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These thresholds are cumulative from the base for reprogramming value as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers into or out of a procurement (P-1) or research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified threshold, the Department of Defense must submit a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

    DIMINISHING MANUFACTURING SOURCES COSTS IN MISSILE PROGRAMS The conferees are concerned by the level of diminishing manufacturing sources (DMS) costs in Department of Defense tactical missile programs, particularly the Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM). The conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics), in coordination with the Service secretaries, to provide two reports to the congressional defense committees.

    The first report shall provide information on the management of DMS costs within the AMRAAM program, to include an explanation of the cost drivers of AMRAAM DMS; an explanation of the AMRAAM program's approach to DMS management and its conformity with departmental guidance and best practices; an economic analysis demonstrating the costs and benefits, including the break-even point, of the AMRAAM DMS program; and an analysis of the impact of foreign military sales on AMRAAM DMS costs and management. This report shall be submitted not later than 120 days after the enactment of this Act.

    The second report shall provide information on the broader issue of DMS costs and management across all tactical missile procurement programs. This report shall provide an overview of current strategies for addressing DMS, including current and planned joint activities that address common DMS issues; an explanation of the key tactical missile DMS cost drivers; a comparison of DMS costs across all tactical missile programs; and an analysis of the impact of foreign military sales on DMS costs and management. This report shall be submitted not later than 180 days after the enactment of this Act.

    In addition, the conferees direct the Secretaries of the Air Force and the Navy to report DMS costs separately from missile unit costs in future budget exhibits to enhance the congressional defense committees' ability to oversee DMS costs.

    JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER ADVANCE PROCUREMENT AND CONTRACT DELAYS The conferees are concerned with the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) contract award timelines and the negative impacts on the JSF subcontractor workforce. The combination of inconsistencies in JSF advance procurement for each variant and the contract award delays have a potential to put the industrial base at risk or jeopardize the aircraft delivery schedule. Therefore, the conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to provide a report which examines the authorities and use of JSF advance procurement, including the rationale for the cost differences in advance procurement among the aircraft variants and their associated impacts to the subcontractor workforce. Additionally, the report should examine the causes of procurement contract award delays and the planned corrective action to ensure that final award of the production contracts occurs within the year of appropriation. This report shall be submitted to the congressional defense committees not later than 120 days after the enactment of this Act.

    USE OF UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES IN DOMESTIC AIRSPACE The conferees are aware of concerns that have been raised regarding the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and their sensors in domestic airspace. The conferees understand that the Air Force has policies and procedures in place governing the disposition of UAV collections that may inadvertently capture matters of concern to law enforcement agencies. These policies and procedures are designed to ensure constitutional protections and proper separation between the military and law enforcement. However, it is unclear if other Services and Defense agencies have similar policies and procedures in place, or if these policies and procedures need to be revised or standardized. Therefore, the conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to report to the congressional defense committees on the policies and procedures in place across the Services and Defense agencies governing the use of such collections and to identify any additional steps that need to be taken to ensure that such policies and procedures are adequate and consistent across the Department of Defense. This report shall be submitted not later than 90 days after the enactment of this Act.

The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [[Page H1170]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.131 [[Page H1171]] special interest items Items for which additional funds have been provided as shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' are congressional special interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the stated amount, as specifically addressed in the explanatory statement.

    reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts The conferees direct the Department of Defense to continue to follow the reprogramming guidance specified in the report accompanying the House version of the fiscal year 2008 Department of Defense Appropriations bill (House Report 110- 279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming funds will remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and $10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.

    Also, the conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) to continue to provide the congressional defense committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports for service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of this Act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or research, development, test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These thresholds are cumulative from the base for reprogramming value as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers into or out of a procurement (P-1) or research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the identified threshold, the Department of Defense must submit a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

    department of defense and service cyber activities The conferees understand that the Department is revising the budget justification materials to be provided with the fiscal year 2014 budget submission that are in support of cyber activities. The conferees support the Department's efforts to provide increased detail on this important national security issue and will continue to work with the Department to ensure there is adequate oversight on cyber activities.

    The conferees support the evolution of current space systems but are concerned that the Department of Defense and the Air Force have yet to define the architectural and system specific goals being pursued with these funds. The conferees direct the Secretary of the Air Force, in coordination with the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics), to provide to the congressional defense committees, not later than 90 days after the enactment of this Act, a report describing the overall SMI strategy and goals, a specific accounting of the studies and technologies to be pursued, the current and follow-on costs for those efforts, schedules for delivery of such efforts, and a roadmap of how these efforts correlate or support the future acquisition plans for SBIRS, AEHF, and Global Positioning System satellite and ground segments.

    PROMOTING ENERGY SECURITY The conferees do not include a provision as proposed by the House regarding the Energy Independence and Security Act. However, the conferees provide $20,000,000 in Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Air Force only for research that will improve emissions of coal to liquid fuel to enable this technology to be a competitive alternative energy resource to meet the goals established in the Department of Defense's Operational Energy Strategy and its Implementation Plan. The conferees direct the Secretary of the Air Force, in consultation with the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Operational Energy Plans and Programs, to inform the congressional defense committees 30 days prior to any obligation or expenditure of these funds.

The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.182 [[Page H1227]] DEFENSE HEALTH PROGRAM The conference agreement provides $32,715,304,000 for the Defense Health Program, instead of $32,902,234,000 as proposed by the House and $32,240,788,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.183 [[Page H1228]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.184 [[Page H1229]] REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR THE DEFENSE HEALTH PROGRAM The conferees remain concerned regarding the transfer of funds from Direct (or In-house) Care to pay for contractor- provided medical care. To limit such transfers and improve oversight within the Defense Health Program operation and maintenance account, the conferees include a provision which caps the funds available for Private Sector Care under the TRICARE program subject to prior approval reprogramming procedures. The provision and accompanying explanatory statement language included by the conferees should not be interpreted by the Department as limiting the amount of funds that may be transferred to the Direct Care System from other budget activities within the Defense Health Program. In addition, the conferees continue to designate the funding for the Direct Care System as a special interest item. Any transfer of funds from the Direct (or In-house) Care budget activity into the Private Sector Care budget activity or any other budget activity will require the Department of Defense to follow prior approval reprogramming procedures.

    The Department shall also provide written notification to the congressional defense committees of cumulative transfers in excess of $15,000,000 out of the Private Sector Care budget activity. The conferees further direct the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to provide quarterly reports to the congressional defense committees on budget execution data for all of the Defense Health Program accounts and to adequately reflect changes to the budget activities requested by the Services in future budget submissions.

    CARRYOVER For fiscal year 2013, the conferees recommend one percent carryover authority for the operation and maintenance account of the Defense Health Program. The conferees direct the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to submit a detailed spending plan for any fiscal year 2012 designated carryover funds to the congressional defense committees not less than 30 days prior to executing the carryover funds.

    PEER-REVIEWED CANCER RESEARCH PROGRAM The conference agreement provides $15,000,000 for a Peer- Reviewed Cancer Research Program that would research cancers not addressed in the breast, prostate, ovarian, and lung cancer research programs currently executed by the Department of Defense, and specifically by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.

    The funds provided are directed to be used to conduct research in the following areas: melanoma and other skin cancers, pediatric brain tumors, genetic cancer research, pancreatic cancer, kidney cancer, blood cancer, colorectal cancer, mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, and listeria vaccine for cancer.

    The funds provided under the Peer-Reviewed Cancer Research Program shall only be used for the purposes listed above. The conferees direct the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to provide a report not later than 60 days after the enactment of this Act to the congressional defense committees on the status of the Peer-Reviewed Cancer Research Program. For each research area, the report should include the funding amount awarded, the progress of the research, and the relevance of the research to servicemembers and their families.

    PEER-REVIEWED MEDICAL RESEARCH PROGRAM The conference agreement provides $50,000,000 for a Peer- Reviewed Medical Research Program. The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense, in conjunction with the Service Surgeons General, to select medical research projects of clear scientific merit and direct relevance to military health. Research areas considered under this funding are restricted to the following areas: chronic kidney disease, chronic migraine and post-traumatic headaches, composite tissue transplantation, dengue, DNA vaccine technology for postexposure prophylaxis, dystonia, epilepsy, food allergies, Fragile X syndrome, hantavirus, hereditary angioedema, inflammatory bowel disease, interstitial cystitis, leishmaniasis, lupus, malaria, nanomedicine for drug delivery science, pancreatitis, polycystic kidney disease, post- traumatic osteoarthritis, pulmonary hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, and tinnitus. The conferees emphasize that the additional funding provided under the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program shall be devoted only to the purposes listed above.

    INTEGRATED ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORD The conference agreement includes a provision restricting the amount of funding that may be obligated to develop the integrated Department of Defense-Department of Veterans Affairs (DoD-VA) integrated Electronic Health Record (iEHR) to 25 percent of the funding provided until the DoD-VA Interagency Program Office (IPO) provides the House and Senate Appropriations Committees an expenditure plan which includes elements such as a budget and cost baseline with annual and total spending for each Department and quarterly milestones. The expenditure plan should also be submitted to the Government Accountability Office for review.

    The conferees are concerned that after four years of working to establish a joint framework to collaborate and develop an integrated Electronic Health Record, the two Departments still seem to be operating as single entities. The conferees support the creation of the IPO and recognize this office as the single point of accountability for the development and implementation of the integrated Electronic Health Record for both Departments. Unfortunately, since the creation of the IPO and the naming of a director, the conferees have seen little benefit from establishing this office since both Departments appear to operate as separate entities. Despite repeated inquiries, neither the Departments nor the IPO has been able to provide Congress with a firm total cost of the integrated system. The conferees are concerned that the IPO is unable to maintain focus on its defined goals, provide effective governance, manage and maintain accountability on behalf of both Departments, and provide Congress with detailed expenditure plans as well as information regarding the progress and future plans for this project.

    As a result, the conferees direct the IPO to deliver to the congressional defense committees, the Senate and House Subcommittees on Appropriations for Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) a quarterly report that includes a detailed explanation of the cost and schedule of the iEHR development, to include milestones, knowledge points, and acquisition timelines as they impact both Departments, as well as quarterly obligation reports. The conferees also direct the IPO to continue briefing the House and Senate Appropriations Committees on a quarterly basis, coinciding with the report submission. The conferees further direct the GAO to review these quarterly reports and provide an annual report to the congressional defense committees and the Senate and House Subcommittees on Appropriations for Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies on the cost and schedule of the iEHR.

    CHEMICAL AGENTS AND MUNITIONS DESTRUCTION, DEFENSE The conference agreement provides $1,301,786,000 for Chemical Agents and Munitions Destruction, Defense, as proposed by both the House and the Senate.

    REPORTING REQUIREMENTS The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to continue to report incremental contingency operations costs for Operation New Dawn and Operation Enduring Freedom on a monthly basis in the Cost of War Execution report as required by the Department of Defense Financial Management Regulation, Chapter 23, Volume 12. The conferees further direct the Department to continue providing Cost of War reports to the congressional defense committees that include the following information by appropriation account: funding appropriated, funding allocated, monthly obligations, monthly disbursements, cumulative fiscal year obligations, and cumulative fiscal year disbursements.

    The conferees expect that in order to meet unanticipated requirements, the Department of Defense may need to transfer funds within these appropriations accounts for purposes other than those specified in this report.

    EXTREMIST ORGANIZATIONS The conferees are aware that certain governments and organizations have policies and practices counter to the best interests of the United States.

Of that amount, $460,000,000 is for the Army National Guard, $460,000,000 for the Air National Guard, $240,000,000 for the Army Reserve, $90,000,000 for the Navy Reserve, $120,000,000 for the Marine Corps Reserve, and $130,000,000 for the Air Force Reserve to meet urgent equipment needs that may arise this fiscal year.

    This funding will allow the Guard and reserve components to procure high priority equipment that may be used by these components for both their combat missions and their missions in support of state governors. The conferees direct that the National Guard and Reserve Equipment account shall be executed by the Chiefs of the National Guard and reserve components with priority consideration given to the following items: A-10 Situation Awareness Upgrade; ARC 210 Radios for ANG F-16s; Arctic Search and Rescue Packages; Armory-Based Individual and Unstabilized Gunnery Trainers; Batteries and Battery Support Equipment; Bradley Modifications; C-130 Crash-Resistant Loadmaster Seats; C-130 Secure Line-of-Sight [SLOS] Beyond Line-of-Sight [BLOS] Capability; C-130/KC-135 Real Time Information in Cockpit [RTIC] Data Link; CH-47 Door Gun Mounts; Combat Mobility Equipment; Combined Arms Virtual Trainers; F-15 AESA Radars; Field Engineering, Logistics, Maintenance, and Security Equipment; Force Protection Equipment; Generation 4 Advanced Targeting Pods; Green Laser Interdiction Systems; handheld laser trackers; HC-130 Forward Area Refueling Point; Helicopter Firefighting Equipment; Helmet-Mounted Cueing System; HMMWV Recapitalization; In- Flight Propeller Balancing System; Internal and External Auxiliary Fuel Tanks for Apaches and Chinooks; Joint Threat Emitters; Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures [LAIRCM]; Light Utility Helicopters; Modular Airborne Firefighting System II; Modular Small Arms Training Systems; MRAP Vehicle Virtual Trainers; Naval Construction Force Tactical Vehicles and Support Equipment; Reactive Skin Decontamination Lotion; SATCOM Ground Stations; Support Wide Area Network [SWAN] D V3/MRT Packages; Targeting Pod Upgrades; Thermal Imaging Systems; Ultra-Light Tactical Vehicles; Unit Maintenance Aerial Recovery Kits; Virtual Convoy Operations Trainers; and Virtual Door Gunner Trainers.

    RESERVE COMPONENT SIMULATION TRAINING SYSTEMS The use of simulation training systems has yielded a military that is better trained, more capable, and more confident as compared to units that do not have access to modern simulation training devices. Simulation training is a cost-effective means by which reserve units can improve tactical decision-making skills and ultimately save lives. It is anticipated that a portion of the funding in the National Guard and Reserve Equipment account will be used to procure a variety of simulation training systems. To ensure the most efficient and effective training programs, these systems should be a combination of both government owned and operated simulators, as well as simulation support from a dedicated commercial activity capable of providing frequent hardware and software updates.

    NATIONAL GUARD AND RESERVE EQUIPMENT RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT The conferees are concerned that the active Services are not providing the necessary research, development, test and evaluation funding for federal and domestic operations requirements as they relate to equipping the reserve components, especially equipment unique to the reserve component or legacy systems with limited active component investment. The conferees understand that the funding required is minimal, and therefore direct the Services, particularly the Air Force, to provide the necessary research, development, test and evaluation funds to ensure that modernizing equipment or legacy systems unique to the reserve component be given the required design, integration, test, and software efforts needed prior to procurement.

    RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION The conference agreement provides $247,716,000 for Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, instead of $235,516,000 as proposed by the House and $260,413,000 as proposed by the Senate. The conference agreement on items addressed by either the House or the Senate is as follows: [[Page H1255]] [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.206 [[Page H1256]] REVOLVING AND MANAGEMENT FUNDS The conference agreement provides $243,600,000 for the Defense Working Capital Funds, instead of $293,600,000 as proposed by the House and $1,467,864,000 as proposed by the Senate.

Report language included by the House, which is not changed by the report of the Senate or this explanatory statement, and Senate report language, which is not changed by this explanatory statement, is approved by the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress. This explanatory statement, while repeating some report language for emphasis, does not intend to negate the language referred to above unless expressly provided herein. In cases where the House or the Senate has directed the submission of a report, such report is to be submitted to both Houses of Congress. House or Senate reporting requirements with deadlines prior to, or within 15 days after, enactment of the conference agreement shall be submitted no later than 60 days after enactment of this Act. All other reporting deadlines not changed by this explanatory statement are to be met.

    Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs Joint Collaboration on Medical Facility Construction.--Having the Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facility construction accounts in the same bill allows the Committees to review coordinated efforts and efficiencies within the two systems. An overarching concern of the conferees has been to facilitate the seamless transition from active duty service member to veteran, including the transition from DOD to VA medical facilities. The conferees are aware of multiple instances in which DOD and the VA have failed to coordinate medical facility construction efforts, in particular, where the VA is currently collocated with an existing DOD medical facility, but hospital replacement facilities are planned and budgeted in the military construction budget without coordination or consultation with the VA. Better coordination between the two Departments on construction activities, where appropriate, has the potential to save money by reducing duplicative construction costs, and provides a unique opportunity for creating more efficient use of medical equipment once the hospitals or outpatient clinics become operational. The conferees therefore direct the TRICARE Management Activity and the Veterans Health Administration to report to the congressional defense committees no later than 180 days after enactment of this Act on the current construction coordination between the two agencies. The report should include a comparison by fiscal year of the TRICARE Management Activity and the Veterans Health Administration's future year construction plans for new facilities that currently are collocated as well as any potential new collocation sites.

    Hiring of veterans.--The conferees continue to be concerned about unemployment rates among the Nation's veterans, particularly for those who have recently left active duty. With impending force reductions, this problem is likely to worsen. The conferees urge the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), as well as the Department of Defense and the domestic agencies funded in title III of this division, to redouble their efforts to hire returning veterans and to exceed where possible statutory requirements for veterans hiring preferences. In recognizing the skills and specialty certifications veterans have received through their military training, these agencies will gain a superior workforce and at the same time demonstrate the Government's appreciation for our veterans' service.

    TITLE I DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ITEMS OF GENERAL INTEREST Incrementally Funded Projects.--The conferees note that the Administration requested several large military construction projects that can be incrementally funded, but were instead submitted as large single-year requests, in accordance with a directive from the Office of Management and Budget to the Department of Defense to severely restrict the use of incremental funding for military construction. The Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress have previously notified the Administration that they reserve the prerogative to provide incremental funding where appropriate, in accordance with authorizing legislation. In general, the conferees support full funding for military construction projects. In some cases, however, incremental funding makes fiscal and programmatic sense. The conference agreement therefore incrementally funds the following projects: Ambulatory Care Center Phase 3, Joint Base San Antonio, Texas; STRATCOM Replacement Facility, Increment 2, Offutt AFB, Nebraska; U.S. Military Academy Cadet Barracks, West Point, New York; and Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Complex, Deveselu, Romania.

    MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, ARMY The conference agreement appropriates $1,684,323,000 for Military Construction, Army. Within this amount, the agreement provides $80,173,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer services, and host nation support.

    Arlington Cemetery.--The budget request proposed to fund Arlington National Cemetery through three accounts: $25,000,000 to be provided through Operation and Maintenance, Army, $103,000,000 to be provided through Military Construction, Army, and $45,800,000 to be provided through Cemeterial Expenses, Army for a total of $173,800,000. The conferees do not include the $103,000,000 requested in title I. The funds are instead provided in title III of Division J under Cemeterial Expenses, Army.

    MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, NAVY AND MARINE CORPS The conference agreement appropriates $1,549,164,000 for Military Construction, Navy and Marine Corps. Within this amount, the agreement provides $102,619,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer services.

    Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP).--The conference agreement provides $150,000,000 for ECIP. Additionally, the conference agreement provides $10,000,000 in dedicated funding for ECIP planning and design. The conferees strongly support the efforts of the Department of Defense to promote energy conservation, green building initiatives, energy security, and investment in renewable energy resources, and commend the leadership of the Department and the services for making energy efficiency a key component of construction on military installations. The conferees urge the Department to use the dedicated planning and design funds to invest in innovative renewable energy projects as well as projects that enhance energy security at military installations. The conferees also encourage the Department to request dedicated planning and design funding for ECIP in future budget submissions.

    MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, ARMY NATIONAL GUARD The conference agreement appropriates $613,799,000 for Military Construction, Army National Guard. Within this amount, the agreement provides $26,622,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer services.

    MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, ARMY RESERVE The conference agreement appropriates $305,846,000 for Military Construction, Army Reserve. Within this amount, the agreement provides $15,951,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer services.

    MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, NAVY RESERVE The conference agreement appropriates $49,532,000 for Military Construction, Navy Reserve. Within this amount, the agreement provides $2,118,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer services.

    MILITARY CONSTRUCTION, AIR FORCE RESERVE The conference agreement appropriates $10,979,000 for Military Construction, Air Force Reserve. Within this amount, the agreement provides $2,879,000 for study, planning, design, architect and engineer services.

    NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANIZATION SECURITY INVESTMENT PROGRAM The conference agreement appropriates $254,163,000 for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Security Investment Program.

    FAMILY HOUSING CONSTRUCTION, ARMY The conference agreement appropriates $4,641,000 for Family Housing Construction, Army.

    FAMILY HOUSING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, ARMY The conference agreement appropriates $530,051,000 for Family Housing Operation and Maintenance, Army.

    FAMILY HOUSING CONSTRUCTION, NAVY AND MARINE CORPS The conference agreement appropriates $102,182,000 for Family Housing Construction, Navy and Marine Corps.

    FAMILY HOUSING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, NAVY AND MARINE CORPS The conference agreement appropriates $378,230,000 for Family Housing Operation and Maintenance, Navy and Marine Corps.

    FAMILY HOUSING CONSTRUCTION, AIR FORCE The conference agreement appropriates $83,824,000 for Family Housing Construction, Air Force.

    [[Page H1272]] FAMILY HOUSING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, AIR FORCE The conference agreement appropriates $497,829,000 for Family Housing Operation and Maintenance, Air Force.

    FAMILY HOUSING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE, DEFENSE-WIDE The conference agreement appropriates $52,238,000 for Family Housing Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide.

    DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FAMILY HOUSING IMPROVEMENT FUND The conference agreement appropriates $1,786,000 for the Department of Defense Family Housing Improvement Fund.

    DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HOMEOWNERS ASSISTANCE FUND The conference agreement provides no appropriation for the Department of Defense Homeowners Assistance Fund in fiscal year 2013, the same as the budget request.

    CHEMICAL DEMILITARIZATION CONSTRUCTION, DEFENSE-WIDE The conference agreement appropriates $151,000,000 for Chemical Demilitarization Construction, Defense-Wide.

    DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BASE CLOSURE ACCOUNT 1990 The conference agreement appropriates $409,396,000 for the Department of Defense Base Closure Account 1990. This amount is $60,000,000 above the budget request to accelerate the pace of environmental cleanup at closed or realigned military installations. Based on requirements identified by the services, the conferees direct that, of the additional funding provided, $30,000,000 be made available for the Army, and $30,000,000 for the Navy. These funds are to be allocated at the discretion of the services to meet the most pressing unfunded environmental cleanup requirements at closed or realigned bases.

    DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BASE CLOSURE ACCOUNT 2005 The conference agreement appropriates $126,697,000 for the Department of Defense Base Closure Account 2005, The conferees note that significant bid savings have been realized in the BRAC 2005 military construction program, primarily as a result of the favorable bid climate over the past several years, and believe that these savings should be used to offset current BRAC 2005 requirements. The conferees therefore are rescinding $132,513,000 from previous BRAC 2005 appropriations (Sec. 131 of Administrative Provisions) to offset the fiscal 2013 request.

    BRAC 133.--In an effort to mitigate traffic congestion surrounding the Mark Center site, the conference agreement includes a limitation on the number of parking spaces the Department may utilize at the Mark Center to no more than 2,500, with the exception of disabled parking spaces. The limitation may be waived in part, but not in whole, if the Secretary of Defense certifies that none of the intersections surrounding the Mark Center reach failing levels of service ``e'' or ``f,'' as defined by the Transportation Research Board Highway Capacity Manual, during a consecutive 90 day period.

The conferees concur in the direction of the Senate regarding the budget detail for components of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) such as the VHA central office, Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) staff offices and centralized field support offices. The conferees request VA to provide more detailed information about the Board of Veterans Appeals staffing and claims workloads, and require the data requested in the House report pertaining to full- time equivalents and funding within administrative line items. The conferees also require a breakout of all reimbursable or cost sharing arrangements exceeding $5,000,000 in value that are in place for crosscutting efforts across the Department.

    VETERANS BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION COMPENSATION AND PENSIONS (Including Transfer of Funds) The conference agreement appropriates $60,599,855,000 for Compensation and Pensions. The agreement reflects new estimates provided in the Administration's mid-session review. Of the amount provided, not more than $9,204,000 is to be transferred to General Operating Expenses, Veterans Benefits Administration and Information Technology Systems, for reimbursement of necessary expenses in implementing provisions of title 38.

    READJUSTMENT BENEFITS The conference agreement appropriates $12,023,458,000 for Readjustment Benefits. The agreement reflects new estimates provided in the Administration's mid-session review. The agreement provides full funding for the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP), for which the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) estimates it will obligate more than $1,100,000,000 in fiscal year 2013.

    VETERANS INSURANCE AND INDEMNITIES The conference agreement appropriates $104,600,000 for Veterans Insurance and Indemnities.

    VETERANS HOUSING BENEFIT PROGRAM FUND The conference agreement appropriates such sums as may be necessary for costs associated with direct and guaranteed loans for the Veterans Housing Benefit Program Fund. The agreement limits obligations for direct loans to not more than $500,000 and provides that $157,814,000 shall be available for administrative expenses.

    VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION LOANS PROGRAM ACCOUNT The conference agreement appropriates $19,000 for the cost of direct loans from the Vocational Rehabilitation Loans Program Account, plus $346,000 to be paid to the appropriation for General Operating Expenses, Veterans Benefits Administration. The agreement provides for a direct loan limitation of $2,729,000.

    NATIVE AMERICAN VETERAN HOUSING LOAN PROGRAM ACCOUNT The conference agreement appropriates $1,089,000 for administrative expenses of the Native American Veteran Housing Loan Program Account.

    VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION AREAS OF INTEREST Advance appropriation budgeting.--The conferees believe the Department must provide more detailed explanations within its budget justification so the Committees on Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate (``Committees'') will have an accurate and complete view of how its advance funding requests were determined. The conferees concur in the data requirements for advance funding described in the Senate report.

    Reprogramming for medical care initiatives.--The conference agreement includes an administrative provision requiring the Department to submit a reprogramming request whenever funding allocated in the fiscal year 2013 expenditure plan for a medical care initiative differs by more than $25,000,000 from the allocation shown in the 2013 congressional budget justification. Due to the nature of advance appropriations, the Department submits its budget request almost seven full fiscal year quarters before the funding becomes available for obligation. The conferees understand that medical care funding is dynamic in nature and that this length of time between budget submission and obligation creates a situation in which funding priorities and needs may change. However, the conferees believe this has limited the Committees' ability to provide proper budget oversight of initiatives which are budgeted outside of the actuarial model. Therefore, the conferees expect the submission of reprogramming requests throughout the year identifying current year estimates whenever the Department intends to make significant funding shifts within these initiatives. The term ``medical care initiative'' in the bill language refers only to the initiatives, not legislative proposals, in the ``Initiatives/ Legislative Proposals'' section of the VA Medical Care Obligations by Program display on page 1A -5 of Volume 2 of the fiscal year 2013 budget justification. The bill language does not refer to special purpose funds allocated outside the Veterans Equitable Resource Allocation model. The Committees request that reprogrammings be identified only in the aggregate and not by specific project or location.

    The conferees concur with the Senate direction regarding life cycle costs as it relates to the acquisition of batteries and directs that the reporting requirement contained in the Senate report be submitted no later than 180 days after enactment of this Act.

    MEDICAL SERVICES The conference agreement appropriates $43,557,000,000 in advance for fiscal year 2014 for Medical Services. The agreement also provides $155,000,000 for fiscal year 2013 in addition to the advance appropriation provided last year. The conference report includes bill language citing new authority for services for those affected by drinking water contamination at Camp Lejeune, NC. Additional fiscal year 2013 funding is provided for hiring mental health providers and offsetting a projected decline in revenues.

    The conference agreement provides $1,351,851,000 in fiscal year 2014 to fully implement VA homeless assistance programs, including the providers grant and per diem, domiciliary care for homeless veterans, and the HUD-VA supported housing program. In addition, the agreement provides $4,816,132,000 for homeless veteran treatment costs in fiscal year 2014.

    The conference agreement provides the full fiscal year 2014 request of $6,453,027,000 for mental health programs, including $443,332,000 for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), $246,400,000 for traumatic brain injury, and $75,605,000 for suicide prevention.

    The conferees support the VA effort to hire an additional 1,600 mental health clinicians and 300 support staff as part of an ongoing review of mental health operations. The conferees direct the VA to provide the Committees, no later than 60 days after enactment of this Act, a detailed staffing plan and timeline to add these additional personnel.

    The conference agreement provides $250,000,000 for the Office of Rural Health. The conferees acknowledge that the VA is making substantial efforts to improve access and quality of care for rural areas, but are concerned that significant gaps remain. To address the ongoing challenges in recruiting and retaining highly qualified healthcare professionals in rural areas, the conferees urge the VA to consider innovative ways to rotate practitioners through rural areas, including the approaches suggested in the Senate report. Secondly, the conferees urge the VA to move expeditiously in its implementation of the grant program that will allow veterans service organizations to provide better transportation options for rural veterans seeking care at VA facilities. Finally, the conferees urge the VA to thoroughly test the approach for providing non-VA care in rural facilities that is being demonstrated in the Access Received Closer to Home program (Project ARCH) and consider expanding Project ARCH's reach.

    The conferees concur with the direction of the House regarding an annual report detailing the distribution of medical services funding among the VISNs, central headquarters, and medical centers.

    The conferees understand that the time period for the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) review of the regulation establishing VA participation in State prescription drug monitoring boards has expired. The conferees urge OMB to facilitate publication of the regulation so that the program may be implemented before the end of the calendar year.

    The conferees urge the VA to work in conjunction with the Department of Justice's veterans treatment courts program to provide collaborative, rehabilitative approaches for continuing judicial supervision over offenders who are veterans.

    MEDICAL SUPPORT AND COMPLIANCE The conference agreement appropriates $6,033,000,000 in advance for fiscal year 2014 for Medical Support and Compliance.

    MEDICAL FACILITIES The conference agreement appropriates $4,872,000,000 in advance for fiscal year 2014 for Medical Facilities.

    In March of 2012, the Committees were notified that contracting errors were made in the Solicitation for Offers to build the Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) in Southwest Louisiana. These errors have resulted in delays in the opening of the Lake Charles CBOC and the expansion of the Lafayette CBOC. The conferees direct the Department to continue to provide the Committees regular updates on the progress being made to correct the errors and to complete these CBOCs in an expeditious manner.

    MEDICAL AND PROSTHETIC RESEARCH The conference agreement appropriates $582,674,000 for Medical and Prosthetic Research.

    NATIONAL CEMETERY ADMINISTRATION The conference agreement appropriates $258,284,000 for the National Cemetery Administration (NCA). Of the amount provided, $25,828,000 is available until September 30, 2014.

    The conferees are concerned that the NCA is not adequately serving the Nation's veterans in rural areas. While the strategy to serve rural veterans outlined in the fiscal year 2013 budget request is a partial step, it fails to offer a long-term strategy for addressing this underserved veteran population. The conferees are concerned that the NCA places undue emphasis on major urban [[Page H1288]] areas whereas the NCA's effort toward rural areas appears to be a lower priority. As a result, the conference agreement includes bill language requiring the Secretary to provide a report to the Committees within 180 days of enactment of this Act outlining a strategy to address the shortcomings identified in House Report 112-491, with proposed policies and an implementation timeframe. In addition, the conference agreement requires the Government Accountability Office to conduct a review of this strategy and submit it to the Committees not later than 180 days after the Committees receive the strategy.

    The conference agreement includes bill language directing the Secretary to issue guidelines on committal services at VA national cemeteries to ensure that veterans' families may hold committal services with any religious or secular content they desire and invite the participation of an honor guard and veterans service organizations, subject to VA security, safety, and law enforcement regulations. The agreement also restricts VA from editing or controlling the content of speeches at events at national cemeteries, subject to VA authorities provided in section 2413 of title 38, United States Code.

    DEPARTMENTAL ADMINISTRATION GENERAL ADMINISTRATION (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS) The conference agreement appropriates $424,737,000 for General Administration. Of the amount provided, $20,837,000 is available for obligation until September 30, 2014. The conference agreement includes bill language permitting the transfer of funds from this account to ``General Operating Expenses, Veterans Benefits Administration.'' The conference agreement includes bill language designating that not less than $86,006,000 is provided for the Board of Veterans Appeals. The conferees direct the Department to provide to the Committees within 30 days of enactment of this Act a fiscal year 2013 staffing plan and detailed strategic plan to address wait time and backlogs at the Board of Veterans Appeals.

    The conference agreement includes bill language indicating that such sums as may be necessary are provided so that the Department may comply with the energy management requirements under the National Energy Conservation Policy Act.

    The conference agreement includes the following funding levels: (In thousands of dollars) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Conference ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Office of the Secretary.............................. 10,085 Board of Veterans Appeals............................ 86,006 Office of General Counsel............................ 83,099 Office of Management................................. 45,598 Office of Human Resources............................ 70,379 Office of Policy and Planning........................ 26,015 Office of Operations, Security and Preparedness...... 18,510 Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs....... 23,037 Office of Congressional Affairs and Legislative 6,302 Affairs.............................................

    Office of Acquisition, Logistics and Construction.... 55,706 Total............................................ 424,737 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The conferees concur with the House language for the Major Construction account regarding a report on the contract audit program for construction projects and the periodic reporting done by building contractors and intend that the report be provided by the VA central office. The conferees also concur with the Senate language for the General Administration account requesting a report outlining processes that are in place to ensure proper oversight of construction, including which components of central oversight are performed outside of the various VA administrations and whether spot audits are performed in the field.

    The conferees concur with House language regarding the VA budget office being the primary communication source within the VA to the Committees and their Members.

    GENERAL OPERATING EXPENSES, VETERANS BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION The conference agreement appropriates $2,164,074,000 for General Operating Expenses, Veterans Benefits Administration. The agreement makes available not to exceed $113,000,000 of this funding until the end of fiscal year 2014.

    The lengthy wait time and persistent backlog of claims at the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) continue to impose an unacceptable burden on disabled veterans. The conferees understand that the Department has set 2015 as the date by which it plans to achieve a significant reduction in the backlog of claims and to increase the accuracy rate at all regional offices to 98 percent. The conferees concur with direction and reporting requirements in the Senate report and direct the Department to submit one report 90 days after enactment of this Act containing: (1) the metrics developed for evaluating the success in reducing the backlog of claims and the average adjudication time by utilizing external vendors in specific areas of collecting claims materials; (2) the wait times, accuracy rates, and backlog of disability claims decisions at all 57 regional offices; (3) how the quality-review teams and the quality initiatives at each regional office have affected the performance, wait times, and rates at each location; and (4) the specific metrics the VBA uses in determining personnel performance.

    The conferees direct the Department to provide quarterly reports on the implementation of the Veterans Benefits Management System (VBMS) and how the implementation has increased the efficiency and timeliness of VBA claims processing, with the quarterly reports including the number and location of the regional offices that have adopted the paperless claims processing system and the rollout of the individual improved business processes.

    Recent findings by the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General that the Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego, California VA Regional Offices have high error rates and claims processing times compared to other regional offices across the Nation is unacceptable. For example, the Inspector General found that 80 percent of claims reviewed in the Los Angeles office were unnecessarily delayed and that in one case a claim in Oakland had been pending for 8 years. The conferees concur with the direction in the Senate report and direct the Department to submit a report to the Committees no later than 90 days after enactment of this Act detailing how the Inspector General's recommendations are being implemented at these Regional Offices. The report shall also include an explanation about why the Los Angeles office is currently operating in what is referred to as ``safe mode,'' which means that staff is not held accountable to VA standards.

    INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SYSTEMS (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS) The conference agreement appropriates $3,327,444,000 for Information Technology (IT) Systems. The agreement identifies separately in bill language the funding available for pay ($1,021,000,000); operations and maintenance ($1,812,045,000); and systems development, modernization, and enhancement ($494,399,000). The agreement makes $30,630,000 of pay funding available until the end of fiscal year 2014; $126,000,000 of operations and maintenance funding available until the end of fiscal year 2014; and all IT systems development, modernization and enhancement funding available until the end of fiscal year 2014.

    The conference agreement includes bill language prohibiting the obligation of IT development, modernization, and enhancement funding until the VA submits a certification of the amounts to be obligated, in part or in full, for each development project.

    The conference agreement includes bill language permitting funding made available for the three IT subaccounts to be transferred among them after the VA requests and receives approval from the Committees.

    The conference agreement includes bill language providing that funding may be transferred between development projects or to new projects subject to the Committees' approval.

    The conference agreement includes bill language restricting the amount of funding that may be obligated to develop the integrated Department of Defense/Department of Veterans Affairs (DOD-VA) integrated electronic health record (iEHR) to 25 percent of the funding provided until the DOD-VA Interagency Program Office (IPO) provides the Committees an expenditure plan including elements such as a long-term roadmap for the life of the project, with annual and total spending for each Department and quarterly milestones. The expenditure plan should also be submitted to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) for review. The Department of Defense Appropriations Act has comparable bill language.

    The conferees are concerned that after four years of working to establish a joint framework to collaborate and develop an integrated electronic health record, the two Departments still seem to be operating as separate entities. The conferees support the creation of the IPO and recognize this office as the single point of accountability for the development and implementation of the integrated electronic health record for both Departments. Unfortunately, since the creation of the IPO and the naming of a director, the conferees have seen little benefit from establishing this office, since both Departments still appear to operate as separate entities. Despite repeated inquiries, neither of the Departments nor the IPO has been able to provide Congress with a firm total cost of the integrated system. The conferees are concerned that the IPO is unable to maintain focus on its defined goals, provide effective governance, manage and maintain accountability on behalf of both Departments, and provide Congress with detailed expenditure plans as well as information regarding progress and future plans for this project.

    As a result, the conferees direct the IPO to deliver to the congressional defense committees, the Senate and House Subcommittees on Appropriations for Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies, and to the GAO a quarterly report that includes a detailed, plain English narrative explanation of the cost and schedule of the iEHR development, to include milestones, knowledge points, and acquisition timelines as it impacts both Departments, as well as quarterly obligation reports. The conferees also direct the IPO to continue briefing the Committees on a quarterly basis. The conferees further direct the GAO to review these quarterly reports and provide an annual report to the congressional defense committees and the Senate and House Subcommittees on Appropriations for Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies on the cost and schedule of the iEHR.

    As part of the VA's modernization effort, the Department plans to replace its current automated appointment scheduling system with a modern application. The conferees support this effort, however, remain concerned that the VA has not developed a clear [[Page H1289]] strategy aimed at replacing this system. Therefore the conferees direct the Department to submit a report to the Committees detailing the timeline, cost estimate, and implementation strategy for replacing the scheduling system.

    The conferees include bill language making funds available for IT development, modernization, and enhancement for the projects and in the amounts specified in the following table: [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TH06MR13.235 [[Page H1290]] The conferees intend this table to serve as the Department's approved list of development projects; any requested changes are subject to reprogramming guidelines.

    The conference agreement directs the Department to submit an expenditure plan to the Committees within 30 days of enactment of this Act. This plan should be in the same format as the table above.

    OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL The conference agreement appropriates $115,000,000 for the Office of Inspector General. Of the amount provided, $6,000,000 is available for obligation until September 30, 2014. The conferees intend the increase above the budget request to be used for review of VA spending on conferences, the NCA rural cemetery strategy, and VHA audit and field review activities.

    CONSTRUCTION, MAJOR PROJECTS The conference agreement appropriates $532,470,000 for Construction, Major Projects. The agreement makes this funding available for five years, except that $30,000,000 is made available until expended.

    The conferees are pleased that the Department has already begun to transition major construction to a five-year funding cycle. During this implementation period, the conferees provide extended availability for a small amount of the funding while the VA reaches the requirement that project design be 35 percent complete prior to requesting construction funding. The extended availability will protect VA investment if unanticipated circumstances mandate expenditures beyond the five-year project window.

    The conference agreement funds the following items as requested in the budget submission: ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Conference Project agreement ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Veterans Health Admin (VHA): St. Louis, MO medical facility improvements...... $130,300,000 Palo Alto, CA polytrauma/ambulatory care building 177,823,000 Seattle, WA mental health building............... 55,000,000 Dallas, TX spinal cord injury building........... 33,500,000 Advance Planning Fund............................ 70,000,000 Asbestos......................................... 8,000,000 Major Construction Staff......................... 24,000,000 Claims Analysis.................................. 2,000,000 Facility Security................................ 7,200,000 Hazardous Waste.................................. 5,000,000 Judgment Fund.................................... 5,000,000 ------------------ Total VHA.................................... 517,823,000 National Cemetery Admin (NCA): Advance Planning Fund............................ 2,647,000 NCA Land Acquisition Fund........................ 7,000,000 ------------------ Total NCA.................................... 9,647,000 General Admin staff offices advance planning fund.... 5,000,000 ------------------ Major construction total..................... 532,470,000 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ The conferees direct the VA to submit a master plan at the time of the budget submission describing each major construction project included in the budget. The plan should include the projected timeline for completion of each component of each of the projects and the annual and total cost of each project. The format of the DOD Form 1391 is a good model for the VA to use to describe clearly and completely the expected obligations for each project.

    CONSTRUCTION, MINOR PROJECTS The conference agreement appropriates $607,530,000 for Construction, Minor Projects. The agreement makes this funding available for five years. The agreement provides $506,332,000 for the Veterans Health Administration; $58,100,000 for the National Cemetery Administration; $13,405,000 for the General Administration--Staff Offices; and $29,693,000 for the Veterans Benefits Administration.

    The conferees direct the Department to provide to the Committees an expenditure plan for this account within 30 days of enactment of this Act.

    DIVISION D--ACROSS-THE-BOARD REDUCTIONS Section 3001 provides across-the-board reductions to ensure that aggregate spending in the Act complies with the discretionary spending limits in the Budget Control Act of 2011.

    Section 3002 indicates that a sequestration under section 251A(7)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 is applied to the amounts provided in the Act.

    The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman from Kentucky (Mr. Rogers) and the gentlewoman from New York (Mrs. Lowey) each will control 30 minutes.

    The Chair recognizes the gentleman from Kentucky.

    Mr. ROGERS of Kentucky. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

    I rise to present H.R. 933, the Department of Defense and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations, and Full-Year Continuing Resolution for fiscal year 2013.

    Our Nation faces a three-pronged threat to its finances as we deal with sequestration, the debt ceiling, and, most immediately, a looming government shutdown.

    This bill takes the risk of a government shutdown off the table, funding the government for the remainder of the fiscal year while helping maintain our national security and providing our troops and veterans with consistent, adequate funding.

    First and foremost, this bill contains fiscal year 2013 appropriations bills for the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. These bills were crafted by Chairman Bill Young, chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, and very handily done.

    These bills passed the House with broad bipartisan support last year. They have been negotiated on a bipartisan basis by the House and the Senate, and agreed to by the Senate Committee. They do not add a cent to the overall top line of the CR.

    I want to take a minute here to thank Bill Young and his subcommittee, who did such a tremendous job of balancing the interests of the country but with the overriding concern for the security of the country as they drafted--and passed on a bipartisan basis--the Defense appropriations bill.

    Last week, I had the opportunity to ask the Joint Chiefs of our military if they supported this CR package, and the answer was an absolute, wholehearted ``yes.'' In fact, each one of them was asked if it was critical, and each one of the Joint Chiefs said this was critical to the defense of the country.

    This legislation addresses severe funding constraints that would put our national security in dire straits. Military hospitals would not be built, veterans would not be cared for adequately, and our readiness would be seriously jeopardized. With sequestration now in effect, this bill allows the Pentagon some leeway to do its best with what it has.

    The bill provides $518 billion, the same top line level as last year. Within this top line, accounts have to be re-prioritized to ensure adequate investment in critical programs, such as operation and maintenance, while finding savings in lower priority areas.

    The legislation right-sizes spending that would otherwise have been wasted. For instance, we eliminate funding for unneeded spare parts and save funding from outdated programs and projects related to operations in Iraq no longer needed.

    In addition, the bill provides $71.9 billion in discretionary funding for military construction and veterans affairs to ensure that our veterans get the care they have earned and that the quality of life in our military is continued. This includes an increase of about $2.5 billion in veterans funding, offset by savings in military construction.

    The remainder of the bill, Mr. Speaker, funds the rest of the Federal Government until the end of the fiscal year on September 30. Nearly all funding will remain consistent with current levels, except for the very few exceptions that are needed to prevent catastrophic changes to government programs or to ensure good government. These include provisions allowing critical law enforcement entities to maintain current staffing levels, additional funding for embassy security and critical weather satellite launches, and an extension of the current pay freeze for Federal employees--including Members of Congress.

    We've also required every single Federal agency to provide spending plans to Congress to ensure transparency and strong oversight of taxpayer dollars.

    Nearly all of the funding in this bill is subject to the President's sequestration, bringing the grand total for discretionary spending to around $984 billion. The bill is designed to help with the damage caused by continually putting off the regular annual appropriations bills, but it does not solve the many serious problems caused by these automatic spending cuts in sequestration.

    A full-year continuing resolution is not the way this Congress should be appropriating taxpayer dollars. Each year, we should assess the needs and excesses of our government and make decisions accordingly in the regular appropriations process. We must return to regular order, pass individual spending bills on time, and fulfill our constitutional duty to fund government programs wisely and effectively. To do all of this, we have to have a partner in the Senate, and we've not had that now for these several years. Our hope springs eternal that the Senate will help us get back to regular order.

    {time} 1210 In light of the circumstances we face, we must make a good-faith effort to provide limited but fair and adequate funding for vital government programs and services through the end of the fiscal year. It is up to Congress to make these decisions to set the course for our financial future.

    We must act now to make the most of this difficult situation, and that starts with avoiding a government shutdown on March 27 and providing for our national defense and veterans.

    This CR package is the right thing to do, the right time to do it, and it is the fair thing.

    And so I urge, Mr. Speaker, my colleagues to show our Nation that we can get our work done by supporting this bill.
