I. INTRODUCTION


1. At its forty-seventh session, on 22 December 1992, the General Assembly adopted resolution 47/205 on the financing of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), paragraph 2 of which authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments for the operation of UNIFIL at a rate not to exceed $12,190,000 gross ($11,931,500 net) per month for the 12-month period beginning 1 February 1993, should the Security Council decide to continue the Force beyond the period of six months authorized under its resolution 768 (1992) of 30 July 1992.

2. On 28 January 1993, the Security Council, by its resolution 803 (1993), extended the mandate of UNIFIL for a further period from 1 February to 31 July 1993.

3. On 28 July 1993, the Security Council, by its resolution 852 (1993), extended the mandate of UNIFIL for a further interim period of six months, until 31 January 1994.

II. STATUS OF ASSESSED CONTRIBUTIONS

4. As at 31 October 1993, assessments totalling $2,152.3 million had been apportioned among Member States in respect of UNIFIL for the periods from the inception of the Force on 19 March 1978 to 31 January 1994. Contributions received for the same period amounted to $2,044.9 million. The outstanding balance of $231.5 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 1981, leaving an amount due of $211.9 million, as indicated in the status of contributions as at 31 October 1993. A tabular presentation is given below.

III. VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS


5. In paragraph 8 of its resolution 47/205, 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. For the period under review, contributions in the form of services and supplies continued to be donated by the Government of Switzerland and consisted of the following: four HC-265-103 voice-ciphering equipment valued at 92,600 Swiss francs, equivalent to approximately $62,100; and air ambulance service for the repatriation of those wounded or taken ill in the performance of their duties, as and when required. During the review period ending 31 October 1993, this service was utilized by UNIFIL on four occasions to evacuate members of the Force to Finland, Norway, Poland and Sweden. The voluntary contributions indicated above were not budgeted for in the cost estimates.

6. 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 1993, voluntary contributions totalling some $9.8 million had been received from Governments. Of this amount, some $1.4 million was received during the financial period under review and was contributed by the Government of Switzerland.

IV. PERFORMANCE REPORT FOR THE PERIOD FROM 1 FEBRUARY 1993 TO 31 JANUARY 1994

7. Annex I to the present report sets out by budget-line item the apportionment provided in respect of UNIFIL for the period from 1 February 1993 to 31 January 1994, as well as the revised apportionment consisting of expenditures and projected obligations for this period. It reflects estimated savings in the amount of $1,194,000. Supplementary information providing detailed descriptions under each line item is provided in annex II.

V. COST ESTIMATE FOR THE PERIOD FROM 1 FEBRUARY 1994 TO 31 JANUARY 1995

8. The costs of UNIFIL for the 12-month period beginning 1 February 1994 are estimated at $11,857,000 gross ($11,474,500 net) per month, based on an average Force strength of 5,250 troops. The estimate is summarized in annex III, with supplementary information provided in annex IV. It takes into account the departure of the Swedish contingent, comprising 491 troops all ranks, by 30 April 1994 and assumes that there would be no gap with regard to the arrival of the replacement contingent of the same strength, the nationality of which has not been determined at this time. The proposed civilian staffing table incorporates a proposed reduction of 18 posts, as shown in annex V. The calculation of salaries and related costs is shown in annex VI.

9. In the event that future decisions of the Security Council regarding the status of the Force entail additional costs over the financial level during the period of the authorization and/or appropriation requested in paragraph 18 below, the necessary additional commitment authorization will be sought from the General Assembly if it is then in regular session, or if it is not, by initial recourse to the Peace-keeping Reserve Fund or to the Assembly resolution on unforeseen and extraordinary expenses for the biennium 1994-1995, with the prior concurrence of the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions. In the latter case, should the amounts required exceed the financial limit stipulated in that resolution, it would be necessary to reconvene the General Assembly to consider the matter.

VI. STATUS OF REIMBURSEMENT TO TROOP-CONTRIBUTING STATES

10. Troops have been provided to UNIFIL by the Governments of Canada, Fiji, Finland, France, Ghana, Ireland, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Italy, Nepal, Nigeria, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Senegal and Sweden. Of these, 10 have continued to provide troops to UNIFIL, namely, Fiji, Finland, France, Ghana, Ireland, Italy, Nepal, Norway, Poland and Sweden.

11. As a result of the withholding of contributions by certain Member States or delays in the payment of assessed contributions by other States, UNIFIL has been unable to meet its obligations on a current basis, particularly those due to the troop-contributing countries, payments to which have never been made on a current and full basis in accordance with the rates established by the General Assembly. So far, the Suspense Account established in accordance with General Assembly resolution 34/9 D has not achieved its purpose of alleviating the financial burden on troop contributors.

12. At the present time, initial reimbursement to Governments is being made at the rate of $750 per person per month for pay and allowances for troops as part of the approved rate of $988 per person per month.

13. 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.

14. As at 31 October 1993, the estimated amounts due to former and current troop-contributing States for troop costs are as follows:



Millions of United States
dollars rounded
(a)
    Pay and allowances
44.8
(b)
    Allowance for specialists
7.4
(c)
    Usage factor for personal clothing, gear and equipment
13.4
    Total
65.6


In addition, an estimated amount of $6.2 million is due to Governments for the cost of contingent-owned equipment.

VII. OBSERVATIONS

15. The unaudited financial statement for UNIFIL covering the 12-month period from 1 February 1991 to 31 January 1992 as at 30 June 1993 indicates that there is a surplus balance of $5,769,036, representing excess of income over expenditure, consisting of interest income ($4,020,427) and other accrued miscellaneous credits, including savings from the liquidation of obligations for prior periods ($1,748,609). The term "income" in the preceding sentence includes assessed contributions unpaid irrespective of collectibility.

16. As indicated in paragraph 4 above, outstanding assessed contributions as at 31 October 1993 amounts to some $231.5 million. Until the level of outstanding assessed contributions is reduced, the Secretary-General recommends that the surplus of $5,769,036, which otherwise would have to be surrendered as credits to Member States, be entered into the Suspense Account established pursuant to General Assembly resolution 34/9 E of 17 December 1979.

17. As a result of the non-payment of assessed contributions, the Organization is still behind in its reimbursement of amounts due to troop-contributing Governments for their participation in UNIFIL. To date, the reimbursements due them have been met only up to 31 January 1991. The Secretary-General appeals to all Member States to pay their assessments in full and without delay. He also appeals to Governments, as a practical measure, to make voluntary contributions to the UNIFIL Suspense Account, which has been set up by the General Assembly to facilitate the reimbursement of amounts due to Governments contributing troops, equipment and supplies to UNIFIL.

VIII. ACTION TO BE TAKEN BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY AT ITS FORTY-EIGHTH SESSION

18. The actions to be taken by the General Assembly in connection with the financing of UNIFIL are as follows:

(a) The appropriation of the amount of $146,280,000 gross ($143,178,000 net) authorized and apportioned under the terms of paragraph 2 of General Assembly resolution 47/205 for the period from 1 February 1993 to 31 January 1994;

(b) With regard to the period after 31 January 1994, commitment authorization at a monthly rate of $11,857,000 gross ($11,474,500 net) for the maintenance of the Force, should the Security Council decide to renew the mandate of UNIFIL beyond that date, and for the apportionment of such amounts taking into account the $24 million gross ($23.5 million net) authorized by the General Assembly in its decision 48/464 of 23 December 1993 for the period 1 February to 31 March 1994;

(c) A decision to credit to Member States the amount of the unencumbered balance of $1,194,000 for the period from 1 February 1993 to 31 January 1994 against their assessments in respect of future mandate periods as may be approved by the Security Council;

(d) A decision as regards the surplus balance of $5,769,036 as indicated in paragraph 15 above. In this regard, it is recommended that the provisions of financial regulations 4.3, 4.4, 5.2 (b) and 5.2 (d) be suspended and that this amount be transferred to the Suspense Account established pursuant to General Assembly resolution 34/9 E, until a further decision on the disposition of the surplus balance is taken by the General Assembly.

ANNEX II

United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon

Performance report for the period from 1 February 1993
to 31 January 1994

Supplementary information

(United States dollars)

Savings/
(overruns)
1. Military personnel costs
    (a) Military observers
    (b) Military contingents
-
1 367 000
The estimated savings resulted from lower requirements under: rotation of contingents ($1,031,000) owing to the postponement of the rotation of the Ghanaian contingent, which would normally have taken place during the latter part of the current budget period, until the early part of the next 12-month period; standard troop cost reimbursement ($300,000) and clothing and equipment allowance ($22,000) as a result of a lower than authorized average troop strength during the reporting period; and rations ($111,000), owing to favourable exchange rates obtaining during the period. Increased requirements under daily allowance for troops ($97,000) were recorded as a result of a shortfall in the account for the last prior period and had to be carried forward to the current budget period.

    (c) Other costs pertaining to military personnel
(822 000)


Increased requirements under this heading were attributable to the replacement of four armoured personnel carriers.


2. Civilian staff costs
    (a) Civilian police
    (b) International and local staff
-
(227 000)


The estimated over-expenditures resulted from increased requirements under: local staff salaries, owing to the engagement of 35 local personnel under general temporary assistance over the authorized level of 132 to compensate for vacant international posts; and travel of staff ($67,000), brought about by travel mandated by political activities in the area and for the installation of new computer equipment and provision of technical training by personnel from Headquarters. These were partially offset by savings under international staff salaries ($637,000) and common staff costs ($478,000).

    (c) International contractual personnel
    (d) United Nations Volunteers
    (e) Government-provided personnel
    (f) Civilian electoral observers
-
-
-
-
3. Premises/accommodation
(641 000)


The increased requirements under construction of premises ($715,000) related to the cost of repairs for camp installations damaged in the Nepalese, Finnish and Irish deployment areas during the hostilities in July 1993. The over-expenditure was partially offset by savings under utilities ($74,000) because UNIFIL is now drawing most of its water supply from its own wells.

4. Infrastructure repairs
-
    No provision is required under this heading.
5. Transport operations
463 000


The estimated savings were attributable to decreased requirements under: petrol, oil and lubricants ($660,000), owing to lower than anticipated prices and reduced fuel consumption; and spare parts, repairs and maintenance ($2,000). Increased requirements under workshop equipment ($183,000) was attributable to losses of vehicle maintenance equipment, including lifts for vehicle repairs/inspection during the July 1993 hostilities. An over-expenditure under vehicle acquisition ($16,000) resulted from currency fluctuations.


6. Air operations
    (a) Helicopter operations
1 798 000


The reduced requirements under this heading reflect the revised agreement with the Government of Italy, effective 1 July 1993, for the provision of a fleet of four Bell 205 helicopters at an annual cost of $1,140,000. No hourly costs would be charged to UNIFIL.

    (b) Fixed-wing aircraft
    (c) Air crew subsistence allowance
    (d) Other air operation costs
-
-
-
7. Naval operations
-
    No provision is required under this heading.
    (a) Complementary communications
(125 000)


The estimated over-expenditures were attributable to: increased requirements under equipment ($45,000) related to an upgrading of the military communications system, including microwave links between Naqoura and battalion headquarters; spare parts and supplies ($40,000) for the repair of damaged installations during the hostilities in July 1993; and commercial communications ($40,000) related to the installation and usage charges for cellular telephones provided to four senior officials of UNIFIL.

    (b) Main trunking contract
-
9. Other equipment
(553 000)


The estimated over-expenditures under this heading were attributable to increased requirements under: data-processing equipment ($308,000), related to the continuing computerization programme; medical and dental equipment ($50,000) for the replacement of an X-ray machine; miscellaneous equipment ($140,000) for the replacement of fire-fighting equipment and mine detectors lost or damaged during the hostilities in July 1993; and spare parts, repairs and maintenance ($55,000) for crew-assisted weapons damaged in the same incident.


10. Supplies and services
(86 000)

The over-expenditures under this heading were related to the increase in the hourly rate of various contractors ($85,000) and stationery and office supplies ($1,000).


11. Election-related supplies and services
-
    No provision is required under this heading.
12. Public information programmes
-
    No provision is required under this heading.
13. Training programmes
-
    No provision is required under this heading.
14. Mine-clearing programmes
-
    No provision is required under this heading.
15. Assistance for disarmament and demobilization
-
    No provision is required under this heading.
16. Air and surface freight
-
      The requirements under this heading have not changed.
17. Integrated Management Information System
-
    The authorized amount was sufficient to cover the cost under this item.
18. Support account for peace-keeping operations
-
    The amount authorized has been transferred to the support account for peace-keeping operations.
19. Staff assessment
(263 000)
    The over-expenditure under this heading resulted from the increase in civilian staff costs detailed in line 2 above.
20. Income
263 000
    This amount is derived from item 19 above.
21. Voluntary contributions in kind
-
    There was no provision under this heading.
