11. Turning to individual mission reports for the period from 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999, the performance report of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) (A/54/707 and Corr.1) showed that expenditures had totalled $33,662,500 gross, resulting in an unencumbered balance of $1,737,600 gross. The increase in the proposed budget for the period from July 2000 to June 2001 was attributable to the two additional posts and additional operational resources that were being sought. In keeping with Assembly resolution 53/226, the Secretary-General proposed to credit back to Member States during the current session of the Assembly an amount of $4,022,162, representing part of the remaining balance held in the suspense account for the Force. Subject to the cash position of the Force at the time and barring unforeseen circumstances, it was expected that the third and final payment of the residual balance of $4 million would be credited back to Member States at the Assembly’s fifty-fifth session.

12. The performance report of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) (A/54/708) showed that expenditures had totalled $134,655,200 gross, resulting in an unencumbered balance of $8,329,300 gross. The proposed budget for the period from 1 July 2000 to 30 June 2001 for the maintenance of UNIFIL (A/54/724) amounted to $139,547,600 gross.
