I. Overview


1. The present report contains the proposed budget for the 12-month period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000 for the maintenance of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), which amounts to $140,044,200 gross ($136,014,800 net), inclusive of a $135,000 budgeted voluntary contribution.

2. Estimated requirements for the period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000 represent a 3.1 per cent increase ($4,212,300) in total resources (gross) in relation to the previous budgetary period. The proposed increase reflects a 0.9 per cent increase in military personnel costs, a 1.7 per cent increase in civilian personnel costs, a 10.7 per cent increase in operational costs, an eightfold increase in other programmes and a 1.6 per cent increase in staff assessment costs.

3. The actions to be taken by the General Assembly are as follows:


II. Political mandate of the mission

(Security Council resolution 425 (1978) of 19 March 1978)

4. The mandate of the Force is to confirm the withdrawal of Israeli forces, to restore international peace and security and to assist the Government of Lebanon in ensuring the return of its effective authority in the area of operations. UNIFIL has been prevented so far from implementing any part of that mandate. In the meantime, its task remains as laid down in the report of the Secretary-General of 19 March 1978 (S/1261), namely, to ensure the peaceful character of its area of operation or, more precisely, of that part of the area which is not under Israeli occupation. In doing so, UNIFIL also affords a measure of protection to the civilian population.

5. The current mandate expires on 31 July 1999 (Security Council resolution 1223 (1999) of 28 January 1999).



III. Operational plan and requirements


6. The streamlining of UNIFIL and related 10 per cent reduction in its strength, to which the Security Council concurred in its resolution 1006 (1995) of 28 July 1995, was completed in May 1996. At the same time, the tasks and responsibilities of UNIFIL were not reduced. UNIFIL has been trying to maintain its operational effectiveness by placing greater emphasis on mobility and flexibility. This means unavoidable dependence on military pattern vehicles, including armoured personnel carriers.

7. The estimate of resource requirements for UNIFIL for the budget period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000 takes the mission=s operational requirements into account. The present budget proposal assumes the further integration of UNIFIL maintenance, logistical and technical support services into unified support services to increase efficiency.

8. While UNIFIL managed to replace some equipment and facilities during the previous financial periods, there remain old and sub-standard equipment and facilities which require urgent replacement since they entail high maintenance costs.

9. A large proportion of the vehicle fleet is too old for write-off and is in unsatisfactory condition, which impacts the Force's operational need to ensure the mobility and reliability of its vehicle fleet. Priority replacement of vehicles is proposed in the budget. In addition, 94 per cent of the Force's prefabricated buildings are more than 10 years old, in extremely poor condition and, in many instances, beyond repair. It is therefore proposed to continue a five-year programme that began two years ago to replace prefabricated accommodation units that are more than 15 years old and ablution units and kitchens/dining facilities that are more than 10 years old. At the same time, the remaining facilities require ongoing refurbishment and maintenance to sustain the basic infrastructure.

10. The ageing communications systems also require a continuation of upgrade to digital systems, and the outmoded military communications equipment must be replaced. Moreover, obsolete observation equipment and old fragmentation jackets must also be replaced.


IV. Contributions made under the status-of-forces agreement


11. A status-of-forces agreement was signed between the United Nations and the Government of Lebanon on 15 December 1995. In accordance with the agreement, the Government extends privileges which include importation, free of duty or other restrictions, of equipment, provisions, supplies and other goods that are for the exclusive and official use of UNIFIL; provision without cost to UNIFIL of 79 buildings and areas for headquarters and camps; and exemption from any taxes or duties in respect of all official local purchases.

13. The current troop contributors are the Governments of Fiji, Finland, France, Ghana, Ireland, Italy, Nepal, India and Poland.



B. Status of reimbursement


14. Full reimbursement in accordance with standard rates established by the General Assembly for troop costs has been made to the troop-contributing States through 31 May 1998. It is estimated that an amount of $34.0 million is due for troop costs for the period ending 31 December 1998.



VII. Contingent-owned equipment


A. Method of reimbursement


15. No contingent-owned equipment agreements have been signed with the troop-contributing countries of UNIFIL. However, for budgeting purposes, wet-lease rates have been applied for the first time for all of the contingent-owned equipment for UNIFIL. Negotiations are in progress with the Government of India.


B. Requirements


1. Major equipment


16. No provision for major equipment for the budgetary period is required.


2. Special equipment


17. The requirement for reimbursement of crew-served weapons to four contingents is estimated at $159,504.


3. Self-sustainment


18. No requirement for self-sustainment is included in the cost estimates for the budgetary period.


4. Mission factors


19. Mission factors intended to compensate troop-contributing countries for extreme operating conditions in the mission area apply to the monthly reimbursable rates, as indicated in the table below:

20. Proposed changes to the staffing table of UNIFIL for the 12-month period commencing 1 July 1998 include:

(a) Upgrading two Professional posts from P-2 to P-3 in support of UNIFIL electronic data-processing and contract activities;

(b) Establishment of one Professional post at the P-3 level (Staff Counsellor and Welfare Officer).

21. The Professional posts upgradings comprise: post of the Chief, Electronic Data-Processing Unit, who is responsible for the management of computer services at UNIFIL, including all administrative, operational and computerization aspects of office automation and electronic data-processing; and the post of Contracts Officer in the Procurement Section, who is responsible for the preparation and administration of construction, maintenance, service and supply contracts. With regard to the request to establish one new P-3 post for a Staff Counsellor and Welfare Officer, the incumbent will provide counselling to facilitate adjustment to mission (including stress management and coping skills); promote positive use of discretionary time by creating recreational programmes; and provide fact sheets and briefing sessions to assist personnel to function effectively in the specific area. The Staff Counsellor and Welfare Officer will also provide support to the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) and the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).

22. Job descriptions for the above-mentioned posts are contained in annex II.D. The detailed breakdown of the staffing table is shown in the table below.

23. In paragraph 10 of its resolution 52/237 of 26 June 1998, the General Assembly requested the Secretary-General, in order to reduce the cost of employing General Service staff, to continue efforts to employ locally recruited staff for the Force against General Service posts, commensurate with its requirements. Following a review of the situation of posts, for operational reasons, it is concluded that conversion from General Service staff posts into local staff posts is not possible at this time.

IX. Cost estimates for the period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000



24. The total cost of maintaining UNIFIL for the period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000 is estimated at $140,044,200 gross ($136,014,800 net), inclusive of a $135,000 budgeted voluntary contribution. Some 58.7 per cent of those amounts is based on standard costs contained in the standard ratio/cost manual, while the remaining 41.3 per cent covers mission-specific requirements and other items that may vary from the standards. These mission-specific requirements and variations cover 42 items, of which no standard cost exists for 32 items. Mission-specific requirements, including those costs that deviate from standard cost parameters, are described in annex II.A.

25. The proposed cost estimates are presented in annex I and represent a 3.1 per cent increase ($4,212,300), in gross terms, over the previous budget, exclusive of provision for the support account for peacekeeping operations. The increase is largely due to an expected increase in rations costs following implementation of a new rations contract effective 1 October 1998; increase in local staff salaries by 2.5 per cent effective 1 March 1998; and increased requirements for the replacement of vehicles, communications equipment, office furniture and equipment, miscellaneous equipment and accommodations equipment owing to the fact that a large portion of UNIFIL vehicles and equipment will reach the end of their economically useful life during the budget period. The increased requirements will be partially offset by a decrease under premises and accommodations as a result of reductions in construction projects and adjustments to estimated requirements under various headings that take account of the Force's past expenditure experience.

26. Column 1 of annex I.A shows expenditures for the period from 1 July 1997 to 30 June 1998. Column 2 shows the apportionment for the period from 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999 as authorized by the General Assembly in its resolution 52/237. The cost estimates for the period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000 are shown in column 3. The estimate in column 3 excludes provision for the support account for peacekeeping operations and the United Nations Logistics Base at Brindisi, as these requirements are budgeted for separately. To ensure comparability with column 3, columns 1 and 2 exclude expenditures/apportionment/ absorption relating to the support account for peacekeeping operations and the United Nations Logistics Base at Brindisi. Non-recurrent cost estimates are shown in column 4. The distribution of resources by major cost component is provided in annex I.B, while supplementary explanation of the cost estimates is provided in annex II.C.

27. Supplementary information concerning the cost estimates for the period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000 is provided in support of proposals for non-recurrent as well as for recurrent resources where requirements vary from the prior authorized level of resources by 10 per cent or $100,000 of the previous budgetary provision for that expenditure line. Further analysis in respect of the cost estimates is included in annexes II.A to C. Annex II.A provides mission-specific recurrent costs. Distribution of resources by budgetary cost parameter: standard/mission-specific costs is presented in annex II.B, while descriptions of non-recurrent costs are contained in annex II.C. Job descriptions are presented in annex II.D.

28. A review of all peacekeeping computer assets and operations in each of the field missions was undertaken and completed during 1998 to ensure that all computer operations would be year-2000 compliant and run without problem after 31 December 1999. Based on the outcome of this review and the priority attached to addressing this matter, immediate action has commenced to replace most of the non-compliant items identified now with the objective of ensuring that year-2000 compliant hardware and software will be fully installed and operational before 31 December 1999. A substantial portion of the cost of replacing non-compliant hardware and software, upgrading and introducing new systems and training personnel is being met from within amounts already budgeted for these purposes and through redeployment of other resources in the approved budgets for each of the peacekeeping missions for the period from 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999. For UNIFIL, some of the cost of replacing computer hardware and software could be met from within the current approved budget for the period from 1 July 1998 to 30 June 1999. The balance of the requirements is now being requested in the context of the proposed budget for the period from 1 July 1999 to 30 June 2000 under non-recurrent costs.

C. Supplementary information



Military personnel costs



Apportionment: $78,534,100; estimate: $79,242,000; variance: $707,900

1. The increase of $707,900 under military personnel costs relates to military contingents ($185,000) and contingent-owned equipment ($552,900).


Military contingents


2. The increase of $185,000 under this heading is due to additional requirements for rotation costs as a result of replacement of the Norwegian battalion by the Indian battalion. The cost of travel between UNIFIL and India is higher than the cost of travel between UNIFIL and Norway.


Contingent-owned equipment


3. The estimate includes first-time provision for the wet-lease costs of crew-served weapons assumed to be leased by the United Nations during the budget period in accordance with the new procedures for determining reimbursement to Member States for contingent-owned equipment ($159,504). The estimate also includes provision for reimbursement of the equipment provided for 30 patrol dogs ($28,800), as well as ammunition requirements for operational use and zeroing-in and testing of heavy contingent-owned weapons (352,748).



Civilian personnel costs


Apportionment: $25,623,300; estimates: $26,051,100; variance: $427,800

4. The increase of $427,800 under this heading relates to an increase in international and local staff costs.


International and local staff


5. Salaries and common staff costs of internationally recruited staff are estimated on the basis of the 1999 standard cost rates for New York, while local staff salaries reflect the scale currently applicable in the mission area. The calculations are based on a total of 491 posts (147 international and 344 local), including the proposed establishment of one additional Professional post (P-3) and upgrading of two Professional posts from P-2 to P-3. The estimate of salaries and common staff costs for international staff incorporates a 5 per cent vacancy factor.

6. Local staff salaries reflect an increase of 2.5 per cent effective 1 March 1998 based on the results of a salary survey conducted by the United Nations Development Programme. The estimates for the 344 local staff posts were based on level 4, step 5 of the salary scales. No vacancy factor has been applied.

7. The estimate under this heading provides $114,300 for other travel costs and will finance two official trips by the Force Commander to United Nations Headquarters and within the mission area ($13,265); travel to United Nations Headquarters, Lebanon and Israel by the Senior Adviser ($9,611); travel to United Nations Headquarters and Beirut by the Chief Administrative Officer ($11,092); official travel of staff within the mission area ($45,100); travel by other staff for short courses/training ($9,000); one trip by two headquarters personnel for mission assessment for three and one half days ($2,572); one trip by the mission's aviation specialist to the International Civil Aviation Organization in Montreal, Canada, for a training course for 10 days ($4,470), and the travel of two internal auditors to the mission area for 21 days ($9,200). Provision is also made for the travel of two staff members from the Field Administration and Logistics Division of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations to provide training on new contingent-owned equipment procedures for 14 days ($10,144).



Operational costs


Apportionment: $27,840,200; estimates: $30,830,700; variance: $2,990,500

8. The estimate of $30,830,700 includes non-recurrent cost requirements, which amount to $13,869,667.

9. The increase of $2,990,500 under this heading is attributable to an increase of $3,157,600 in transport operations ($2,723,400), air operations ($1,400), communications ($27,300), other equipment ($354,200) and air and surface freight ($51,300), offset by a decrease of $167,100 in premises and accommodations ($113,100) and supplies and services ($54,000).

10. The lower level of requirements under premises and accommodation is due primarily to lower projected requirements for building projects anticipated in the programme under construction and prefabricated buildings and taking into account the Force=s prior expenditure experience. The estimates under premises and accommodation also take into account the amount of $135,000 to be reimbursed by the Government of Lebanon for the rental charges related to UNIFIL house in Beirut, which is treated as a budgeted voluntary contribution.


Transport operations


11. The budget includes a non-recurrent provision of $9,671,630 for the replacement of 415 vehicles ($9,448,630) and workshop equipment ($223,000). The proposed replacement of vehicles is based on established replacement policy for general purpose vehicles, that is 5 years or 120,000 kilometres; and for heavy trucks and buses, 8 years or 135,000 kilometres and 10 years or 250,000 kilometres, respectively. The detailed breakdown for the replacement of 415 vehicles is shown in annex III.C.

12. The cost estimates for spare parts, repairs and maintenance for transport operations have been calculated based on past actual maintenance cost experience for UNIFIL vehicles in the total amount of $5,250,400 for spare parts, repairs and maintenance of 1,083 vehicles at the rates of $169 per vehicle per month for 637 civilian pattern vehicles and $739 per month for 446 military pattern vehicles.

13. Requirements for petrol, oil and lubricants ($2,245,000) have been determined based on actual monthly consumption statistics during the 1997/98 financial period, as detailed in annex II.A.

14. The provision for vehicle insurance ($493,500) covers the cost of third-party liability insurance carried by the Force for its fleet of vehicles at the rate of $490 per vehicle for 928 general purpose vehicles; $350 each for 105 armoured personnel carriers; and $46 each for 50 items of mobile equipment. Compared with the 1998-1999 apportionment ($852,800) for this purpose, the 1999-2000 requirements are substantially lower owing to a renegotiation of the worldwide policy rate for insurance of the UNIFIL vehicle fleet, effective 1 October 1998.


Other equipment


15. The increased provision of $354,200 under this heading is attributable to the non-recurrent requirements of $1,698,500 to replace equipment as detailed in annex II.C. The equipment includes office equipment (binding equipment, fax machines, money counting machines and paper shredders), data-processing equipment to ensure year-2000 compliance, office furniture and equipment, observation equipment (day and night vision devices, searchlights), medical and dental equipment, accommodation equipment and miscellaneous equipment (fire-fighting equipment, hand-held mine detectors and heaters).


Commercial freight and cartage


16. This estimate provides for the cost of shipping and handling of supplies and equipment for which no provision has been made elsewhere. The provision includes commercial freight costs ($142,000), Beirut Port Authority charges ($31,000), customs clearing and freight forwarding services for UNIFIL shipments through Beirut harbor ($124,000), rental of civilian transport ($10,000), freight costs for items from United Nations Headquarters to the mission area ($60,000) and shipment charges for uniforms, flags and decals from the United Nations Logistics Base at Brindisi to UNIFIL ($16,300).



Other programmes



Apportionment: $2,900; estimates:$26,000; variance: $23,100

Training programmes


17. The estimate under this heading provides for basic management and supervision training for selected Professional and Field Service staff in UNIFIL ($22,170), as well as for factory training for UNIFIL communications technicians for the upgrading of the whole analog UHF/Microwave network to a digital system ($4,000).



Staff assessment



Apportionment: $3,831,400; estimate: $3,894,400; variance: $63,000

18. The amount budgeted under this heading represents the difference between gross and net emoluments, that is, the amount of staff assessment to which the United Nations staff members are subject, in accordance with the staff regulations of the United Nations. Staff assessment for 147 internationally recruited staff is estimated on the basis of the 1999 standard cost rates for New York, while staff assessment for the 344 local staff is estimated by using the scale currently applicable in the mission area.



Income from staff assessment


Apportionment: ($3,831,400); estimate: ($3,894,400); variance: ($63,000)

19. The staff assessment requirements provided for under category VII have been credited to this item as income from staff assessment and will be credited to the Tax Equalization Fund established by the General Assembly in its resolution 973 A (X) of 15 December 1955. Member States are given credit in the Fund in proportion to their rates of contribution to the UNIFIL budget.
