I. INTRODUCTION


1. The General Assembly, in its decision 48/464 A of 23 December 1993, authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments up to the amount of $24,000,000 gross ($23,500,000 net) for the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) for the period from 1 February to 31 March 1994. By the same decision, the Assembly decided to assess the amount of $22,876,600 gross ($22,400,000 net) among Member States for the same period.

2. In its decision 48/464 B of 5 April 1994, the General Assembly authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments for the maintenance of the Force for the period from 1 April to 31 May 1994 in an amount of $23,714,000 gross ($22,949,000 net) based on the pro rata share of the amount recommended by the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions (ACABQ).

3. By its resolution 48/254 of 26 May 1994, the General Assembly decided to appropriate the amount of $71,142,000 gross ($68,847,000 net), for the period from 1 February to 31 July 1994, inclusive of the commitment authority of $24,000,000 gross ($23,500,000 net) for the period from 1 February to 31 March 1994 and $23,714,000 gross ($22,949,000 net) for the period from 1 April to 31 May 1994, authorized under General Assembly decisions 48/464 A and B, respectively. By the same resolution, the Assembly decided further to assess the additional amount of $48,265,400 gross ($46,447,000 net) for the period from 1 February to 31 July 1994, taking into account the amount of $22,876,600 gross ($22,400,000 net) already assessed on Member States in accordance with its decision 48/464 A.

4. By the same resolution, the Assembly authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments for the operation of the Force at a rate not to exceed $11,857,000 gross ($11,474,500 net) per month for a period up to six months beginning 1 August 1994, should the Security Council decide to continue the Force beyond 31 July 1994, and to assess that amount on Member States.

5. The Security Council, by its resolution 938 (1994) of 28 July 1994, extended the mandate of UNIFIL for a further interim period of six months, until 31 January 1995.

II. STATUS OF ASSESSED CONTRIBUTIONS

6. As of 31 October 1994, the total amount of $2,369.7 million had been appropriated for UNIFIL for the period from the inception of the Force on 19 March 1978 to 31 January 1995. Assessed contributions received for the same period amounted to $2,179.2 million. The outstanding balance of $235.2 million includes an amount of $19.6 million transferred to a special account in accordance with General Assembly resolution 36/116 A of 10 December 1991, leaving an amount due of $215.6 million, as indicated in the status of contributions as at 31 October 1994. A tabular presentation is given below.

III. VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS


7. In paragraph 20 of its resolution 48/254, the General Assembly renewed its invitation to Member States to make voluntary contributions to UNIFIL both in cash and in the form of services and supplies acceptable to the Secretary-General. No voluntary contributions have been received for the period under review. The Government of Switzerland has continued to make air ambulance service available to UNIFIL for the repatriation of those wounded or taken ill in the performance of their duties, as required. However, this service was not utilized by UNIFIL during the period from 1 February to 31 October 1994.

8. Member States were also invited to make voluntary contributions in cash to the Suspense Account established in accordance with General Assembly resolution 34/9 D of 17 December 1979. As at 31 October 1994, voluntary contributions totalling some $11.2 million had been received from Governments. Of this amount, some $1.4 million was received during the financial period under review from the Government of Switzerland.

IV. FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE REPORT FOR THE PERIOD FROM
1 FEBRUARY 1994 TO 31 JANUARY 1995

9. Annex I to the present report sets out, by budget-line item, the apportionment of the resources provided to UNIFIL for the period from 1 February 1994 to 31 January 1995, as well as the revised apportionment consisting of expenditure and projected obligations for this period. Savings are anticipated under military personnel costs as a result of actual and proposed reductions in troop strength as follows: Nepalese contingent (51 troops in September 1994); and French contingent (180 troops: 30 in September 1994 and an additional 150 by 31 December 1994). There is an estimated unencumbered balance in the amount of $1,120,000. Supplementary information providing detailed descriptions under each line item is provided in annex II.

V. COST ESTIMATE FOR THE PERIOD FROM 1 FEBRUARY 1995 TO 31 JANUARY 1996


10. The costs of UNIFIL for the 12-month period beginning 1 February 1995 are estimated at $11,234,500 gross ($10,870,830 net) per month, based on an average Force strength of 5,015 troops. The estimate is summarized in annex III, with supplementary information provided in annex IV.

11. The cost estimate for the 12-month period amounting to $134,814,000 gross ($130,450,000 net) reflects a decrease of $7,470,000 gross ($7,244,000 net) from the appropriation of $142,284,000 gross ($137,694,000 net) for the current financial period. The decrease is due mainly to a reduction in the average troop strength from 5,250 to 5,015, as well as the replacement of 26 international civilian staff by the same number of local staff in accordance with the request contained in General Assembly resolution 48/254.

VI. STATUS OF REIMBURSEMENT TO TROOP-CONTRIBUTING STATES

12. Troops have been provided to UNIFIL by the Governments of Canada, Fiji, Finland, France, Ghana, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Ireland, Italy, Nepal, Nigeria, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Senegal and Sweden. Of these, nine have continued to provide troops to UNIFIL: Fiji, Finland, France, Ghana, Ireland, Italy, Nepal, Norway and Poland.

13. As a result of the withholding of assessed contributions or delays in the payment of assessed contributions by certain Member States, UNIFIL has been unable to meet its obligations on a current basis or in full, particularly those due to the troop-contributing countries.

14. At the present time, monthly reimbursement to Governments is being made at the initial rate of $750 per person for pay and allowances for troops as part of the approved rate of $988 per person per month. In addition, reimbursements have not been made to the troop-contributing Governments in respect of the supplementary payment for specialists and for the usage factor for personal clothing, gear and equipment, including ammunition, except on those occasions when payments of arrears of assessed contributions are received. Full reimbursement has been made to troop-contributing Governments only up to the period ending 31 July 1993.

15. As of 31 October 1994, the estimated amounts due to former and current troop-contributing States for troop costs are as follows:



        Millions of United States dollars rounded
        (a)
        (b)
        (c)
Pay and allowances
Allowance for specialists
Usage factor for personal clothing, gear & equipment
19.7
3.0
5.5
Total
28.2


In addition, an amount of $7.7 million is due as reimbursement to Governments for contingent-owned equipment for the period ending 31 December 1993.

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

16. In paragraph 27 of the report of the ACABQ, 1/ the Committee concurred in the Secretary-General's proposal to enter the surplus balance of $5,769,036 for the 12-month period from 1 February 1991 to 31 January 1992 into the Suspense Account. The General Assembly, in paragraph 18 of its resolution 48/254, decided to postpone action on the surplus balance in the Suspense Account as referred to in paragraph 17 of the resolution. The audited financial statement shows a surplus balance of $5,780,416, which represents an increase of $11,380 from the previously reported amount.

17. In the light of the high level of outstanding contributions and the inability of UNIFIL to meet its obligations on a current basis, and since there has been no improvement in the payment of assessed contributions, it is not feasible to recommend any reduction in the surplus balance of the UNIFIL Suspense Account. Moreover, it is proposed to maintain in the Suspense Account the surplus balance of $5,780,416 for the period from 1 February 1991 to 31 January 1992 and the amount of $12,198,044 for the period from 1 February 1992 to 31 January 1993 if further progress in the timely payment of the Force's obligations is to be achieved. These surplus balances represent the excess of income over expenditure, although the term "income" includes uncollected assessed contributions.

VIII. COMMENTS ON PARAGRAPH 17 OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION 48/254

18. In paragraph 17 of its resolution 48/254, the General Assembly requested the Secretary-General to include in his next report comments on the feasibility of a gradual reduction of the surplus balance, taking into account the financial situation of the Force, the status of reimbursement to troop-contributing countries and the views expressed by Member States.

19. It may be recalled that the General Assembly, by its resolution 34/9 E of 17 December 1979, suspended the provisions of regulations 5.2 (b), 5.2 (d), 4.3 and 4.4 of the Financial Regulations of the United Nations in respect of those amounts which otherwise would have to be surrendered, and directed that these be held in suspense pending a further decision by the Assembly. The amount currently held in a suspense account for the period through 31 January 1992 is $90.5 million.

20. It may further be recalled that the Assembly, by its resolution 36/116 A of 10 December 1981, decided to transfer to a special account the balance of the assessed contributions of $19.6 million due from a Member State.

21. Annex XI shows the surplus balance held in suspense, as well as the cash balance, and projected requirements through 31 January 1995, the end of the current mandate period.

22. As shown in annex XI, the surplus balance held in a suspense account amounts to $90.5 million. After adjusting for the amount of $19.6 million transferred to a special account, the net surplus balance will amount to $70.9 million. As indicated in paragraph 6 above, outstanding assessed contributions as at 31 October 1994 amounted to some $235.2 million.

23. The total indebtedness of UNIFIL through 31 January 1995 amounts to $207.7 million, consisting of unliquidated obligations for the periods prior to 1 February 1994 ($32.2 million), accounts payable ($46.5 million) and projected expenditures, including unliquidated obligations for the period from 1 February 1994 to 31 January 1995 ($129.0 million). The available cash balance in the UNIFIL special account as at 25 October 1994 was some $30.2 million.

24. In the light of the foregoing and in spite of the amounts held in suspense, starting with General Assembly resolution 34/9 E, the financial burden on troop contributors has not so far been alleviated owing to the high level of outstanding contributions. Accordingly, it is the view of the Secretary-General that it is not feasible at this time to reduce the amount being held in suspense.

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

25. The action to be taken by the General Assembly at its forty-ninth session in connection with the past and future financing of UNIFIL is as follows:

(a) The appropriation of the amount of $71,142,000 gross ($68,847,000 net) authorized and assessed under the terms of paragraph 16 of General Assembly resolution 48/254 for the period from 1 August 1994 to 31 January 1995;

(b) With regard to the period after 31 January 1995, commitment authorization at a monthly rate of $11,234,500 gross ($10,870,830 net) for the maintenance of the Force and for the assessment of such amounts, should the Security Council decide to renew the mandate of UNIFIL beyond that date;

(c) A decision to credit to Member States the amount of the unencumbered balance of appropriations of $1,120,000 for the period from 1 February 1994 to 31 January 1995 against their assessments in respect of future mandate periods as may be approved by the Security Council;

(d) A decision on the surplus balances of $5,780,416 covering the period from 1 February 1991 to 31 January 1992 and $12,198,044 for the period from 1 February 1992 to 31 January 1993 as indicated in paragraph 17 above. It is recommended that the provisions of regulations 4.3, 4.4, 5.2 (b) and 5.2 (d) of the Financial Regulations of the United Nations be suspended temporarily and that these amounts be held in suspense pursuant to General Assembly resolution 34/9 E of 17 December 1979, until a further decision is taken by the Assembly.

ANNEX II

United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon

Financial performance report for the period from
1 February 1994 to 31 January 1995

Supplementary information

(United States dollars)

Savings/
(overruns)

1.Military personnel costs
1 928 000
(a) Military observers
(b) Military contingents
-
1 928 000



The estimated savings resulted from lower requirements under the following budget-line items: standard troop cost reimbursement ($641,000), owing to the reductions in troop strength (81 persons in September 1994 from the French and Nepalese contingents and 150 persons from the French contingent by 31 December 1994); rations ($105,000), caused by the favourable exchange rate for the United Kingdom pound and reductions in troop strength; daily allowance ($11,000), also a result of reductions in troop strength; travel of military personnel ($92,000), owing to the discontinuance of travel and subsistence allowance in Tyre and Beirut effective 20 June 1994; rotation of contingents ($1,022,000), because of the reversed rotation schedule; and clothing and equipment allowance ($57,000), also attributable to reductions in troop strength.



(c) Other costs pertaining to military personnel
-


The amounts allocated for contingent-owned equipment and death and disability compensation have been fully obligated to cover potential claims.



2. Civilian personnel costs
709 000
(a) Civilian police
-
No provision was made under this heading.
(b) International and local staff
709 000


Projected savings under international staff salaries ($308,000) and common staff costs ($421,000) resulted from the high vacancy rate in the Professional category. The cost estimate was based on an anticipated overall vacancy rate of 5 per cent.

Additional requirements under other travel costs ($20,000) resulted from the travel of Headquarters personnel to the mission area for the installation of new computer equipment and for training of UNIFIL staff on new data-processing equipment programmes.


(c) International contractual personnel
-
No provision was made under this heading.
(d) United Nations Volunteers
-
No provision was made under this heading.
(e) Government-provided personnel
-
No provision was made under this heading.
(f) Civilian electoral observers
-
No provision was made under this heading
3. Premises/accommodation
-



The projected over-expenditure under utilities ($17,000), owing to the increase in the unit cost of water charges for both UNIFIL headquarters and the areas of operations, was offset completely by savings under construction/ prefabricated buildings ($17,000) that resulted from the cancellation of the purchase of rubhalls, which were acquired from ex-United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC) stock.


4. Infrastructure repairs
-
No provision was made under this heading.
5. Transport operations
(831 000)


Estimated savings under this heading were due to the lower requirement for the purchase of vehicles ($651,000), as a result of the cancellation of the purchase of 25 vehicles, made possible by obtaining 25 ex-United Nations Observer Mission in El Salvador (ONUSAL) vehicles. These savings were partially offset by the over-expenditure under: spare parts, repairs and maintenance ($1,257,000), attributable to the non-allocation of funds for the refurbishment of 14 armoured personnel carriers; and vehicle insurance ($225,000), owing to the higher than anticipated cost of vehicle insurance and for covering the shortfall in the account for the prior period which had to be carried forward to the current budget period.

6. Air operations
(48 000)
Over-expenditure under aviation fuel and lubricants was due to additional hours flown owing to operational requirements as well as training flights.
7. Naval operations
-
No provision was made under this heading.
8. Communications
(15 000)
(a) Complementary communication
(15 000)
Over-expenditure under commercial communications resulted from the higher than anticipated cost of telephone and pouch charges.
(b) Main trunking contract
-
No provision was made under this heading.
9. Other equipment
(392 000)
Over-expenditure under this heading ($392,000) comprised the following: office furniture and equipment ($30,000), owing to the purchase of a heavy-duty photocopier for the Reproduction Centre, which is used for military and civilian personnel reproduction purposes; observation equipment ($300,000), owing to the required purchase of night vision equipment; miscellaneous equipment ($62,000), owing to the unanticipated purchase and installation costs of bush fire-fighting equipment which would be fitted when needed on the Italian helicopters, as well as the purchase of four 50-calibre, heavy machine-guns to be mounted on armoured personnel carriers which were contributed by the Swedish contingent.
10. Supplies and services
(291 000)
The projected over-expenditure under this heading was a result of higher requirements for security services ($60,000); contractual services ($156,000) as a result of the increased hourly rates of various contractors and additional contractual services required for sewage and garbage disposal; and medical treatment and services ($75,000), owing to the higher than anticipated number of military personnel requiring specialized medical treatment which could not be furnished by facilities within the mission.
11. Election-related supplies and services
