I. INTRODUCTION

1. At its forty-eighth session, the General Assembly adopted resolution 48/253 of 26 May 1994 on the financing of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) for the period from 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994. At that time the mandate of UNDOF had been extended by the Security Council until 31 May 1994 by its resolution 887 (1993) of 29 November 1993.

2. It may be recalled that the General Assembly, in its decision 48/463 A of 23 December 1993, authorized the Secretary-General, on an exceptional basis, to enter into commitments up to the amount of $10,720,000 gross ($10,396,000 net) for UNDOF for the period from 1 December 1993 to 31 March 1994. The Assembly also decided that no assessment on Member States would be necessary in the light of the cash balance in the UNDOF special account. Subsequently, in its decision 48/463 B of 5 April 1994, the Assembly authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments for the maintenance of UNDOF for the period from 1 April to 31 May 1994 in an amount of $5,360,000 gross ($5,198,000 net).

3. In paragraph 14 of its resolution 48/253, the General Assembly appropriated the amount of $16,080,000 gross ($15,594,000 net) for the period from 1 December 1993 to 31 May 1994. In paragraph 18 of the same resolution, it authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments for UNDOF at a rate not to exceed $2,680,000 gross ($2,599,000 net) per month for the period from 1 June to 30 November 1994, should the Security Council decide to continue UNDOF beyond 31 May 1994, the above amounts to be assessed on Member States in accordance with the scheme set out in the resolution.

4. By its resolution 921 (1994) of 26 May 1994, the Security Council extended the mandate of UNDOF for a period of six months, until 30 November 1994.


II. STATUS OF ASSESSED CONTRIBUTIONS


5. As at 30 September 1994, the total amount of $1,084.4 million had been appropriated and authorized for UNDOF and the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) for the period from inception to 30 November 1994. The assessment among Member States in respect of UNDOF and UNEF for the above-mentioned period is $1,057.6 million. Contributions received for the same period amounted to $985.1 million. The outstanding balance of $72.5 million includes an amount of $36 million transferred to a special account in accordance with General Assembly resolution 36/116 A of 10 December 1981, and an amount due of $36.5 million as indicated in the status of contributions as at 30 September 1994. The following table summarizes the status of contributions for UNDOF for the period from its inception to 30 September 1994:

6. It should be noted that despite the urging contained in resolution 48/253 of all Member States to make every effort to ensure prompt and full payment of their assessed contributions to UNDOF, there has been a deterioration in the payment of assessed contributions. The outstanding balance in assessed contributions has increased by $13.9 million, from $58.6 million on 31 October 1993 to $72.5 million on 30 September 1994.


III. VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS

7. The General Assembly, in its resolution 48/253, invited voluntary contributions to UNDOF from Member States both in cash and in the form of services and supplies acceptable to the Secretary-General. No voluntary contribution has been received for the period under review. The Government of Switzerland has continued to make available to UNDOF air ambulance service for the repatriation of those wounded or taken ill in the performance of their duties, as and when required. This service was not utilized by UNDOF during the period from 1 December 1993 to 31 August 1994.

IV. FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE REPORT FOR THE PERIOD FROM
1 DECEMBER 1993 TO 30 NOVEMBER 1994

8. Annex I lists by budget-line item the apportionment of the resources provided to UNDOF for the period from 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994, as well as the estimated expenditure incurred for that period. There is an estimated unencumbered balance in the amount of $293,000. Supplementary information providing a detailed description under each line item is provided in annex II.

V. COST ESTIMATE FOR THE PERIOD FROM 1 DECEMBER 1994
TO 30 NOVEMBER 1995

9. The present mandate of UNDOF expires on 30 November 1994. Should the Security Council renew its mandate beyond that date and assuming continuance of its existing responsibilities, the Secretary-General estimates the cost of UNDOF to be $2,678,000 gross ($2,594,000 net) per month from 1 December 1994 onwards. Appropriation and/or authorization to enter into commitments and assessment for UNDOF is, therefore, required for the period from 1 December 1994. Accordingly, the Secretary-General requests that the General Assembly, at its present session, make appropriate provision for expenses of UNDOF for the period from 1 December 1994 to 30 November 1995, in the event the Security Council decides to renew its mandate. Supplementary information on the cost estimate for the 12-month period from 1 December 1994 to 30 November 1995 is provided in annex IV.

10. As presented, that estimate reflects a substantial decrease in the cost of rental of premises because of the relocation of UNDOF headquarters from Damascus to Camp Faouar, as well as a reduction in the cost of transport workshop equipment as a result of the consolidation of military workshops. On the other hand, it also reflects an increase under the heading of purchase of vehicles due to the high demand for replacement of existing vehicles that are worn out or obsolete. In addition, the estimate takes into account the 68 per cent increase in the cost of kerosene as well as the 60 per cent increase in the cost of other petroleum products. Taken together, those cost increases offset nearly all decreases previously mentioned.

VI. STATUS OF REIMBURSEMENT TO TROOP-CONTRIBUTING STATES


11. Troops are currently being provided to UNDOF by the Governments of Austria, Canada and Poland. Full reimbursement in accordance with the standard rates of reimbursement has been made on a current basis to those Governments.

VII. OBSERVATIONS AND COMMENTS ON PREVIOUS RECOMMENDATIONS BY
THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON ADMINISTRATIVE AND BUDGETARY QUESTIONS


12. In paragraph 6 of the report of the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions dated 17 March 1994 (A/48/905), the Advisory Committee recommended that the surplus balance of $5,109,799 (see A/48/700, para. 10) be credited to Member States, rather than entered into the suspense account as recommended by the Secretary-General. The General Assembly, in paragraph 21 of its resolution 48/253, decided to postpone action on the surplus balance, pending receipt of the present report, which, pursuant to the resolution, was to include a study of the feasibility of a gradual reduction of the surplus balance in the suspense account.

13. It may be recalled that in paragraph 10 of the report of the Secretary-General on the financing of UNDOF, it was indicated that, based on the unaudited financial statement of 30 June 1993 for UNEF/UNDOF covering the period from 1 December 1991 to 30 November 1992, the surplus balance amounted to $5,109,799. The audited financial statement for the same period shows a surplus balance of $5,330,932, an increase of $221,133 from the surplus balance previously reported.

14. The audited financial statement as at 31 December 1993 covering the period from 1 December 1992 to 30 November 1993 also shows that there is a surplus balance of $3,775,797, consisting of:

(a) Excess of income over expenditure for the 12-month period from 1 December 1992 to 30 November 1993 ($3,110,398) due to interest income ($1,056,715), miscellaneous income ($48,782) and an unencumbered balance of appropriations ($2,004,901);

(b) Savings arising from liquidation of obligations for prior periods ($665,399).

15. As indicated in paragraph 10 above, full reimbursement has been made on a current basis to Governments providing troops to UNDOF. On that basis, it would be feasible to surrender as credits to Member States the surplus balance for the period from 1 December 1991 to 30 November 1992 ($5,330,932) as well as the surplus balance for the period from 1 December 1992 to 30 November 1993 ($3,775,797).

VIII. COMMENTS ON PARAGRAPH 20 OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY
RESOLUTION 48/253


16. In paragraph 20 of its resolution 48/253, the General Assembly requested the Secretary-General to include in his next report to the Assembly on the financing of UNDOF comments on the feasibility of a gradual reduction of the surplus balance held in a suspense account, taking into account the financial situation of the Force, the status of reimbursement to troop-contributing countries and the views expressed by Member States.

17. It may be recalled that the General Assembly, in its resolution 33/13 E of 14 December 1978, suspended the provisions of the United Nations financial regulations 5.2 (b), 5.2 (d), 4.3 and 4.4 in respect of those amounts which otherwise would have to be surrendered and directed that it be held in suspense pending a further decision by the Assembly. The amount currently held in a suspense account for the period through 30 November 1991 is $64.9 million.

18. It may also be recalled that the General Assembly, in its resolution 36/116 A, decided to transfer the balance of assessed contributions of $36 million due from a Member State to a special account.

19. Annex X shows the surplus balance held in suspense, as well as the cash balance, and projected requirements through 30 November 1994, the end of the current mandate period.

20. As shown in annex X, the surplus balance held in a suspense account amounts to $64.9 million. After adjusting for the amount of $36 million transferred to a special account, the net surplus balance will amount to $28.9 million.

21. The total UNDOF requirements through 30 November 1994 amount to $28.4 million, consisting of unliquidated obligations ($9.3 million), accounts payable ($3.1 million), and projected expenditures through 30 November 1994 ($16 million). The available cash balance as at 10 October 1994 amounts to some $33 million. The difference between cash balance ($33 million) and total requirements ($28.4 million) is $4.6 million, which is equivalent to approximately one and a half months of expenditure for UNDOF.

22. Should the Security Council decide to extend the mandate of UNDOF beyond 30 November 1994, assessment letters to Member States could be issued at the earliest by late December 1994. Based on past experience, receipt of assessed contributions from Member States has been of limited amounts during the first two months after assessment has been made. It is therefore necessary to maintain reserves to meet the requirements of UNDOF for the months of December 1994 and January 1995.

23. As indicated in paragraph 14 above, it would be feasible to surrender as credits to Member States the total surplus balance of $9.1 million for the period from 1 December 1991 to 30 November 1993. Should the General Assembly decide to credit Member States with the $9.1 million, that amount would be offset against future assessments. As a consequence, cash collections would fall short of the amounts required for the operation of UNDOF in view of the recent trend in increased outstanding assessments.

24. As indicated in paragraph 5 above, unpaid assessed contributions as at 30 September 1994 amounted to $72.5 million.

25. It should be noted that the sum of outstanding assessed contributions has increased by $13.9 million over the 11-month period from October 1993 to September 1994. If that pattern of collections continues it is anticipated that the UNDOF special account will experience a shortage of cash for its operations in the near future.

26. In the light of the foregoing, the Secretary-General is of the view that the surplus balance held in suspense could be reduced only under the following conditions:

(a) Substantial payment of arrears are made by Member States;

(b) Prompt and full payments are made by Member States of their assessed contributions in respect of future mandates as may be approved by the Security Council;
(c) The reduction in the surplus balance held in suspense could only be feasible if there is cash available after the operating expenses of UNDOF have been met.

IX. ACTION TO BE TAKEN BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY AT ITS FORTY-NINTH SESSION


27. The actions to be taken by the General Assembly at its forty-ninth session in connection with the past and future financing of UNDOF are as follows:

(a) The appropriation of the amount of $16,080,000 gross ($15,594,000 net), which was authorized and assessed in accordance with paragraph 18 of General Assembly resolution 48/253, for the period from 1 June to 30 November 1994;

(b) With regard to the period after 30 November 1994, commitment authorization at a monthly rate of $2,678,000 gross ($2,594,000 net), for the maintenance of the Force and for the assessment of such amounts, should the Security Council decide to renew the mandate of UNDOF beyond that date;

(c) A decision to credit to Member States the amount of the unencumbered balance of $293,000 for the period from 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994 against their assessments in respect of such future mandate periods as may be approved by the Security Council;

(d) A decision to credit to Member States the surplus balance of $5,330,932 covering the period from 1 December 1991 to 30 November 1992 and the surplus balance of $3,775,797 for the period from 1 December 1992 to 30 November 1993 against their assessments in respect of such future mandate periods as may be approved by the Security Council.

Financial performance report for the period from
1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994

Supplementary information

(United States dollars)

Savings/
(overrun)
1.
Military personnel costs
8 000

(a) Military observers
-

1. No provision is required under this heading.


(b) Military contingents
(46 000)

2. The overexpenditure under this heading was a result of higher requirements for standard troop cost reimbursement ($165,000) resulting from the delayed departure of the Finnish contingent in December 1993 and additional ration costs ($84,000) to replenish the UNDOF provisions inventory to a level sufficient to sustain operations while newly sought commercial ration contracts were being established. Those overruns were offset in part by savings under rotation of contingents ($203,000) due to favourable commercial and government-provided aircraft service rates.

(c) Other costs pertaining to contingents
54 000

3. This saving was attributed to delays in the establishment of letters of assist for contingent-owned equipment, which would result in some deliveries of such equipment being carried forward into the next mandate period.

2.Civilian personnel costs
260 000
(a) Civilian police
-

4. No provision is required under this heading.

(b) International and local staff
260 000

5. A projected savings totalling $300,000 from international staff salaries ($186,000), local staff salaries ($33,000), common staff costs ($77,000) and general temporary assistance ($4,000) was offset in part by additional requirements totalling $40,000 under overtime ($20,000) and other travel costs ($20,000). The savings under international staff salaries, common staff costs and general temporary assistance were attributable to vacancies, as reflected in annex IX. While the cost estimate for international staff salaries and common staff costs were based on a vacancy rate of 5 per cent, general temporary assistance was based on a vacancy rate of none.

(c) International contractual personnel
-

(d) United Nations Volunteers
-

(e) Government-provided personnel
-

(f) Civilian electoral observers
-

6. No provisions are required under these headings.

3.Premises/accommodation
32 000
7. The saving under this heading was attributed to a decrease in requirements for rental of premises ($80,000) due to the relocation of UNDOF headquarters from Damascus to Camp Faouar. This saving was offset slightly by an overexpenditure under construction/prefabricated buildings ($48,000) resulting from an increase in the cost of local construction and building materials as enacted by the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic effective 1 May 1994.

4.Infrastructure repairs
-
8. No provision is required under this heading.

5.Transport operations
(71 000)

9. The overexpenditure under this heading was due to higher requirements for spare parts, repairs and maintenance ($40,000) for UNDOF's fleet of ageing vehicles and also to higher prices for petrol, oil and lubricants ($74,000) as established by the local Government effective 1 May 1994. Those overexpenditures were offset by savings under workshop equipment ($43,000) due to lower than anticipated requirements for tools and equipment for the maintenance of various diesel and gasoline motor vehicles.

Purchase of vehicles
-
10. During the reporting period, the total amount of $172,000 was used for the acquisition of the following three vehicles: (a) one fuel truck ($63,250, consisting of $55,000 plus 15 per cent freight cost); (b) one water truck ($63,250, consisting of $55,000 plus 15 per cent freight cost); and (c) one forklift ($40,250, consisting of $35,000 plus 15 per cent freight cost). Also, for the freight cost of approximately $5,250 for one light cargo truck transferred from the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC). A comparison of the number and type of vehicle as per the original configuration and those actually purchased in the current financial period is shown in the table below:

8.Communications
82 000

(a) Complementary communications
(82 000)

13. The overexpenditure under this heading is due to an overrun in communications equipment ($132,000) attributed to the delayed procurement of the satellite earth station, which, although budgeted for procurement in 1992-1993, was only contracted for in 1993-1994 as a result of administrative delays. This overrun is offset in part by savings ($50,000) for spare parts and supplies that would have been utilized in support of the satellite earth station.

(b) Main trunking contract
-

14. No provision is required under this heading.

9.Other equipment
115 000

15. The saving under this heading is comprised of savings under generators ($55,000) due to the transfer to UNDOF of excess assets of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) and because of savings under observation equipment ($60,000) resulting from the better than expected reliability of existing field assets, which meant that items previously budgeted in the cost estimate were not purchased.

10.Supplies and services
9 000

16. Savings under security services ($24,000) and miscellaneous other services ($5,000) due to lower requirements for those services caused by the relocation of headquarters from Damascus to Camp Faouar were offset by higher requirements under quartermaster and general stores ($20,000) resulting from the purchase of additional electrical supplies for use in the initial wiring of buildings at Camp Faouar.
