I. INTRODUCTION


1. At its forty-seventh session, the General Assembly adopted resolution 47/204 of 22 December 1992 on the financing of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) for the period from 1 December 1992 to 30 November 1993. At that time, the Security Council renewed the mandate of UNDOF until 31 May 1993 by its resolution 790 (1992) of 25 November 1992.

2. By paragraph 2 of its resolution 47/204, the General Assembly appropriated the amount of $18,206,500 gross ($17,718,000 net) for UNDOF for the period from 1 December 1992 to 31 May 1993. By paragraph 7 of the same resolution, the Assembly authorized the Secretary-General to enter into commitments for UNDOF at a rate not to exceed $3,034,000 gross ($2,953,000 net) per month for the period from 1 June to 30 November 1993, should the Security Council decide to prolong the mandate of UNDOF beyond 31 May 1993, and to apportion that amount among Member States in accordance with the scheme set out in paragraphs 3 through 10 of resolution 47/204.

3. By its resolution 830 (1993) of 26 May 1993, the Security Council renewed the mandate of UNDOF for a period of six months, until 30 November 1993.

II. STATUS OF ASSESSED CONTRIBUTIONS

4. As at 31 October 1993, assessments totalling $1,034.1 million had been apportioned among Member States in respect of UNDOF and the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) for the period since their establishment in 1974 to 30 November 1993. Contributions received for the same period amounted to $968.3 million. The outstanding balance of $58.6 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, leaving an amount due of $21.1 million, as indicated in the status of contributions as at 31 October 1993. The table below gives the status of contributions for UNDOF for the periods from its inception to 31 October 1993.

III. VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS

5. The General Assembly, in paragraph 12 of its resolution 45/243 of 21 December 1990, 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 contributions have been received for the period under review. The Government of Switzerland has, however, 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 utilized by UNDOF on three occasions during the review period ending 31 October 1993.

IV. PERFORMANCE REPORT FOR THE PERIOD FROM
1 DECEMBER 1992 TO 30 NOVEMBER 1993

6. Annex I sets out by budget-line item the apportionment provided in respect of UNDOF for the period from 1 December 1992 to 30 November 1993, as well as the actual expenditures and obligations incurred for this period. There is an estimated unencumbered balance in the amount of $640,000. Supplementary information providing detailed description under each line item is provided in annex II.

V. COST ESTIMATE FOR THE PERIOD BEGINNING
1 DECEMBER 1993 TO 30 NOVEMBER 1994

7. The present mandate of UNDOF expires on 30 November 1993. Should the Security Council renew the mandate beyond that date, assuming continuance of its existing responsibilities, the Secretary-General estimates the costs of UNDOF to be $2,680,000 gross ($2,599,000 net) per month from 1 December 1993 onwards. Appropriation and/or authorization to enter into commitments and apportionment for UNDOF is, therefore, required for the period beginning 1 December 1993. Accordingly, in the event the Security Council decides to renew the mandate, the Secretary-General requests that the General Assembly, at its present session, make appropriate provision for UNDOF expenses for the period from 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994.

8. The impact of the scheduled withdrawal of the Finnish contingent during the month of December 1993 is reflected in the summary of the cost estimates of the Force for the period from 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994 and is presented in annex III. The estimate incorporates an overall reduction of approximately 7.8 per cent in military personnel from an authorized strength of 1,124 troops to 1,036. A 6.7 per cent reduction in local level posts is also proposed. Supplementary information on the cost estimate for the 12-month period beginning 1 December 1993 to 30 November 1994 is provided in annex IV.

VI. STATUS OF REIMBURSEMENT TO TROOP-CONTRIBUTING STATES

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

VII. OBSERVATIONS

10. The unaudited financial statement for UNEF/UNDOF covering the 12-month period from 1 December 1991 to 30 November 1992 as at 30 June 1993 indicates that there is a surplus balance of $5,109,799 representing excess of income over expenditure, consisting of interest income ($1,309,685) and other accrued miscellaneous credits including savings from liquidation of obligations for prior periods ($3,800,114). The word "income" in the preceding sentence includes assessed contributions unpaid irrespective of collectibility.

11. As indicated in paragraph 4 above, outstanding collectible assessed contributions as at 31 October 1993 amount to some $21.1 million. Until the level of outstanding assessed contribution is reduced, the Secretary-General recommends that the surplus of $5,109,799, which otherwise would have to be surrendered as credits to Member States, be entered into the suspense account established pursuant to General Assembly resolution 33/13 E of 14 December 1978.

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

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

(a) The appropriation of the amount of $18,204,000 gross ($17,718,000 net) authorized and apportioned in paragraph 7 of General Assembly resolution 47/204 for the period from 1 June to 30 November 1993;

(b) With regard to the period after 30 November 1993, commitment authorization at a monthly rate of $2,680,000 gross ($2,599,000 net), for the maintenance of the Force and for the apportionment 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 $640,000 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;

(d) A decision as regards the surplus balance of $5,109,799 indicated in paragraph 10 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 33/13 E, until a further decision on the disposition of the surplus balances is taken by the General Assembly.

ANNEX II

United Nations Disengagement Observer Force

Supplementary information on the performance report for
the period from 1 December 1992 to 30 November 1993

(United States dollars)

Savings/
(overruns)

1. Military personnel costs

(a) Military observers........................................................................................................................-

(b) Military contingents......................................................................................................................192 000

Lower than expected rates obtained for ration contracts resulted in estimated savings of some $441,000 offset by higher requirements for standard troop cost reimbursement ($159,000), welfare ($2,000), daily allowance ($3,000), travel and subsistence allowance ($27,000), rotation of troops ($48,000) and clothing and equipment allowance. The aforementioned over-expenditures were due to the need for overlap of replacements for the Finnish Battalion with Canadian, Austrian and Polish military personnel. The Force is undergoing a restructuring from the current two line battalions and two logistics units to two line battalions and one logistics unit as shown in annex V.

(c) Other costs pertaining to contingents.............................................................................................-

2. Civilian personnel costs

(a) Civilian police..............................................................................................................................-

(b) International and local staff..........................................................................................................812 000

Estimated savings were due to vacancies arising from the assignment to other missions of international staff ($123,000) and local staff ($444,000), general temporary assistance ($6,000), overtime ($70,000) and common staff costs ($198,000). Higher requirements under travel ($29,000) were due to additional visits undertaken by Headquarters staff to UNDOF during the period.

(c) International contractual personnel...............................................................................................-

(d) United Nations Volunteers...........................................................................................................-

(e) Government-provided personnel...................................................................................................-

(f) Civilian electoral observers..........................................................................................................-

3. Premises/accommodation.......................................................................................................... (127 000)

The over-expenditure under this heading was due to higher requirements under maintenance services for 22 buildings in Camp Faouar ($68,000), and the relocation of the transport workshop from Damascus to Camp Faouar, as well as the relocation of the filling station away from the camp's centre, which was surrounded by office and living accommodations ($229,000). The over-expenditure was partially reduced by lower requirements under utilities ($170,000) because UNDOF is no longer required to reimburse the Government of Syria for electricity usage in the Golan Heights. Moreover, the energy requirements in Camp Faouar are now being supplied by UNDOF's two 635 KVA generators.

4. Infrastructure repairs............................................................................................................................-

5. Transport operations.............................................................................................................................139 000

The estimated savings under this heading were due to lower requirements under: purchase of vehicles ($107,000), due to the transfer of 12 minibuses from UNTAC valued at $108,000; spare parts, repair and maintenance ($3,000); petrol, oil and lubricants ($65,000), due to the continuing change from gasoline to diesel of the majority of vehicles, partially offset by higher requirements under workshop equipment ($30,000) and vehicle insurance ($6,000).

6. Air operations.......................................................................................................................................-

7. Naval operations...................................................................................................................................-

8. Communications

(a) Complementary communications..................................................................................................48 000

The estimated savings under spare parts and supplies ($58,000) resulted from lower prices obtained and partially offset by higher requirements under commercial communications ($10,000) due to heavy volume of telephone and facsimile traffic.

(b) Main trunking contract................................................................................................................-

9. Other equipment.................................................................................................................................(410 000)

An extensive acquisition and installation of EDP equipment and software, undertaken in connection with the computerization programme for procurement and warehousing for UNDOF, including an electronic mail system, resulted in an over-expenditure under data-processing equipment ($486,500) and miscellaneous equipment ($4,000). These were partially reduced by lower requirements under generators ($51,000) and spare parts ($22,000) due to the transfer of generators from the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO), as well as under observation equipment ($1,000) and accommodation equipment ($3,000).

10. Supplies and services...........................................................................................................................(14 000)

Savings under medical treatment and services ($30,000) and medical supplies ($46,000), due to lower-than-expected expenditures for medical and dental care and other services ($3,000) were off-set by higher requirements under stationery and office supplies ($43,000) due to increased need in connection with the enhancement of the computerized systems as well as under quartermaster and general stores ($48,000).

11. Election-related supplies and services.....................................................................................................-

12. Public information programmes..............................................................................................................-

13. Training programmes.............................................................................................................................-

14. Mine-clearing programmes.....................................................................................................................-

15. Assistance for disarmament and demobilization........................................................................................-

16. Air and surface freight...........................................................................................................................-

Commercial freight and cartage.....................................................................................................................-

The authorized amount was sufficient to cover the cost under this item.

17. Support Account for Peace-keeping Operations......................................................................................-

The amount authorized has been transferred to the Support Account for Peace-keeping Operations.

18. Integrated Management Information System (IMIS)................................................................................-

The amount authorized for IMIS has been fully utilized.

19. Staff assessment...................................................................................................................................66 000

Decreased requirements under this heading were due to the vacancies mentioned under paragraph 2 above.

20. Income...............................................................................................................................................(66 000)

The amount is derived from item 19 above.

21. Voluntary contributions in kind................................................................................................................-

There was no provision under this heading.
