I. Introduction


1. The United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) was established for an initial period of six months by the Security Council in its resolution 350 (1974) of 31 May 1974. The mandate of the Force has subsequently been extended by the Council in various resolutions, the latest of which was resolution 1024 (1995) of 28 November 1995, by which the mandate of the Force was extended until 31 May 1996.

2. For the financing of UNDOF, the General Assembly, by its resolution 50/20 of 1 December 1995, authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments for the Force at a rate not to exceed $2,679,000 gross ($2,603,000 net) per month for the seven-month period from 1 December 1995 to 30 June 1996. These amounts were to be assessed on Member States subject to the renewal by the Security Council of the mandate of UNDOF beyond 30 November 1995.

3. Following the extension of the mandate of UNDOF by the Security Council from 1 December 1995 to 31 May 1996, an amount of $15,183,000 gross ($14,719,284 net) was assessed on Member States after the crediting of the unencumbered balance of $805,000 gross ($891,000 net) for the period from 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994, pursuant to General Assembly decision 49/413 B of 12 July 1995.


II. Political mandate

4. The Protocol to the Agreement on Disengagement 1/ which was concluded between Israel and Syria requires UNDOF to maintain the cease-fire, to see that it is scrupulously observed and to supervise the Agreement and Protocol with regard to the areas of separation and limitation.


III. Operational plan and requirements

5. In order to fulfil its obligations under the mandates approved by the Security Council, UNDOF will undertake six major tasks during the budgeted period: (a) establish, operate and permanently staff positions in the area of operation; (b) conduct inspections of armaments and Force levels in the areas of limitation; (c) establish and conduct patrols at irregular intervals on predetermined routes by day and by night; (d) establish and operate temporary outposts and conduct additional patrols from time to time as necessary; and (e) maintain continuous liaison with the parties to the Agreement.

6. As of 5 January 1996, UNDOF was comprised of 1,031 troops from Austria, Canada and Poland (459, 216, and 356 troops respectively), and 4 United Nations military observers seconded from the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO). In addition, UNDOF is being assisted by 84 UNTSO military observers comprising the Observer Group Golan.

7. The mission is supported by 120 civilian personnel assigned to eight sections/offices: Office of the Force Commander, Personnel and Travel Section, Finance Section, Communications Section, General Services Section, Procurement Section, Transport Section and Electronic Data-Processing Section.


IV. Financial administration

A. Financial period


8. A financial period for UNDOF was established by the General Assembly in its decision 35/416 of 1 December 1980 covering the 12-month period from 1 December of one year to 30 November of the following year. In accordance with part I of General Assembly resolution 49/233 A of 23 December 1994, a new financial period covering 12 months, beginning on 1 July of one year and terminating on 30 June of the following year, becomes effective 1 July 1996.


B. Resources made available and operating costs from inception to 31 May 1996

9. Table 1 below indicates the total resources ($1,132.7 million gross) made available to the Force from inception to 31 May 1996. Of this amount, credits returned to Member States amounted to $43.4 million. The estimated expenditures amount to $1,089.3 million net. Detailed information is presented in annex V.


C. Status of assessed contributions

10. Amounts totalling $1,089.3 million in respect of UNDOF and the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) have been assessed on Member States for the period from inception to 31 May 1996. Contributions received as at 31 December 1995 for the same period amounted to $1,011.9 million. In addition, outstanding assessments were reduced by an amount of $4.2 million pursuant to General Assembly resolution 50/83 of 15 December 1995. The outstanding balance of $73.2 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. The details are contained in table 1 below.

b/ Includes savings on cancellation of prior periods' obligations ($4.5 million).


D. Voluntary contributions and trust funds

11. The General Assembly, in paragraph 12 of its resolution 50/20, invited voluntary contributions to UNDOF 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 personnel wounded or taken ill in the performance of their duties, as and when required. This service was not utilized during the period from 1 August to 31 December 1995.

12. No trust fund has been established so far in support of UNDOF.


E. Observations

13. Information regarding the surplus balance for the period from 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994 will be provided following the closure of the accounts for the biennium 1994-1995.



V. Status of reimbursement to troop-contributing Governments


14. As of January 1996, troops are provided by Austria, Canada and Poland. Full reimbursement in accordance with the standard rates established by the General Assembly for troop costs has been made to these States through 31 July 1995. It is estimated that an amount of $4.4 million is due for troop costs for the period ending 31 December 1995.

15. In the past, troops have been provided to the Force by Finland, Iran and Peru.



VI. Signature of status-of-forces agreements


16. No status-of-forces agreement is in force. However, by a note verbale of 22 February 1976, the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic informed the United Nations that UNDOF would be treated in accordance with the 1946 Convention on the Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations.



VII. Cost estimates for the period from 1 July 1996 to 30 June 1997


17. As shown in annex I, column 2, the cost of maintaining the Force for the period from 1 July 1996 to 30 June 1997 is estimated at $31,494,000 gross ($30,582,000 net). Some 59 per cent of these amounts is based on standard cost ratios and costs contained in the Standard Ratios and Costs Manual, while 41 per cent covers mission-specific requirements. These mission-specific requirements and variations cover the items described in annex II, parts A and B, respectively.

18. For comparison purposes, the approved resources prorated for the prior 12-month period from 1 July 1995 to 30 June 1996 amounting to $32,140,000 gross ($31,192,000 net) are shown in annex I, column 1. A breakdown of the proposed budget by non-recurrent and recurrent costs is shown in columns 3 and 4, respectively. Non-recurrent costs amount to $1,511,000 gross and net, while recurrent costs amount to $29,983,000 gross ($29,071,000 net).

19. Supplementary information on the costs estimates is presented in annex II. Section A provides mission-specific cost parameters. Variations from standard ratios are presented in section B. A breakdown of the monthly recurrent requirements and the corresponding annual costs are presented in section C. Non-recurrent requirements are provided in section D. A supplemental explanation on the cost estimates is provided in section E.

20. As shown in table 2 above, the proposed budget reflects a decrease of $646,000 gross in comparison with the prorated resources provided for the operation of the Force for the prior 12-month period from 1 July 1995 to 30 June 1996. The decrease is due mainly to the anticipated transfer of vehicles and equipment from liquidated missions to UNDOF and to an exclusion of the provision for the support account for peace-keeping operations during the budget period.



VIII. Staffing requirements


21. The current and proposed staffing is shown in table 3 below. There are no proposed changes in the staffing requirements during the budgeted period. The detailed breakdown of the staffing table is contained in annex IV.

E. Supplemental explanation

1. Contingent-owned equipment. The estimate provides for partial payment to troop-contributing Governments of the cost of contingent-owned equipment furnished to their contingents at the request of the United Nations. The estimated cost is based on the approved general guidelines, which provide for payment over a period of 4 years or a period of 10 years. After full payment has been made, the ownership of an item vests in the United Nations unless otherwise agreed upon for specific items.

2. Death and disability compensation. This estimate provides for the reimbursement to troop-contributing Governments for payments made by them to members of their military personnel for death, injury, disability or illness resulting from service with UNDOF, based on past experience.

3. Other travel costs. The cost estimate includes provision for the travel and subsistence expenses of internal auditors for two trips between New York and the mission area ($7,000.00) and subsistence allowance for 14 days ($6,440.00). It also includes provision for the travel and subsistence expenses of the Force Commander ($6,720.00) and the Chief Administrative Officer ($6,720.00) to New York for consultations.

4. Integrated Management Information System. There are no requirements under this heading since the proportionate share of financing from peace-keeping budgets has been met.

5. Support account for peace-keeping operations. No provision is made for the funding of the support account for peace-keeping operations in these estimates because the budget for the support account will be presented separately to the resumed fiftieth session of the General Assembly.

6. Commercial freight and cartage. 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 freight costs for diplomatic pouches.

7. Staff assessment. The estimate represents the difference between gross and net emoluments, that is, the amount of staff assessment to which United Nations staff members are subject, in accordance with the Staff Regulations of the United Nations.

8. Income from staff assessment. Staff assessment requirements provided for under expenditure line item 19 have been credited to this item as income from staff assessment and are credited to the Tax Equalization Fund established by the General Assembly in resolution 973 A (X) of 5 December 1955. Member States are given credit in the Fund in proportion to their respective rates of contribution to the UNDOF budget.

9. Other income. Included under this heading is the estimated income to be derived from sale of obsolete or surplus equipment and stores.
