2010 OAS Program-BudgetSummary and Supplementary Data August 25, 2009 SAF
I. 2010 Proposed Program-Budget SAF/DBFS/DPF
Proposed Global Budget Level • The combined Proposal represents a 4% decline from the 2009 level due primarily to anticipatedlower contributions for the Specific Funds. • Proposed Regular and Voluntary (FEMCIDI) Funds appropriation levels for 2010 will remain at the 2009 approved levels. • Specific Fund contributions are projected at $81.9 million, versus $90.0 million in 2009.
Proposed Regular Fund BudgetAppropriation Levels (AG/Res. 1 (XXXVI – E/08) In order to limit the 2010 Regular Fund Budget to 2009 levels, while absorbing anticipated statutory (e.g. COLA) and inflationary pressures, the GS/OAS made a number of key assumptions:
Proposed Regular Fund BudgetKey Assumptions • Inflation and related COLA adjustments in 2010 are projected at 1% over the 2009 levels. These minor projected increases are absorbed within the $90.1 million ceiling. • The number of posts to be financed by the Regular Fund in 2010 is reduced by 13 (from the 2009 level of 547) in order to accommodate COLA and other personnel costs within the Object 1 ceiling of $58.0 million. • Non-personnel (Objects 2 - 9) are also capped at 2009 levels. • No provision for urgent building repairs or capital investments are included in the 2010 Regular Fund budget proposal. These are being addressed under a separate request (see CP/CAAP/INF. 23/09).
Proposed Regular Fund BudgetKey Assumptions (cont.) • The Regular Fund budget proposal does not contain provisions for Main Building centennial celebrations, special General Assemblies or other extraordinary events.
Proposed Regular Fund BudgetRegular Fund Authorized Budget Ceilings for 2001 - 2010 versus Hypothetical Inflation-Adjusted Budget Ceilings(in millions) Proposed • 2010 proposed Regular Fund budget is $20.2 million below the comparable 2001 budget in real terms.
Proposed Regular Fund Budget • Had the 2001 appropriation level kept pace with inflation, the 2010 Regular Fund appropriation would have been set at $110.3 million. • If the 2010 budget proposal were to fully address current requirements (not taking into account capital improvement needs) the budget ceiling would be in the vicinity of $97 million. With only a modest increase of 3% maintaining the recent trajectory the budget ceiling would be $92.8 million.
Proposed Regular Fund BudgetNumber of Posts financed by the Regular Fund Budget Proposed • The 2010 Proposal eliminates 13 posts financed with Regular Fund resources.
Proposed Regular Fund BudgetRegular Fund Authorized Quota Levels for 2001 - 2010 versus Hypothetical Inflation-Adjusted Quota Assessments (in millions) • The 2010 proposed Regular Fund quota assessments are $13.1 million below the comparable 2001 assessments, in real terms.
II. Allocation to Areas by “Pillars” SAF/DBFS/DPF
Allocations to Areas (“Pillars”) (cont.) “Relative Participation Specific Funds/Regular Funds” represents the ratio of Specific Funds dollars for every dollar allocated from Regular Fund resources. For example, for every dollar of the Regular Fund, the Democracy and Governance pillar receives $3.30 in Specific Funds.
