Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 4681: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2014 and 2015   [open pdf - 20KB]

"H.R. 4681 would authorize appropriations for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 for intelligence activities of the U.S. government. Since CBO [Congressional Budget Office] does not provide estimates for classified programs, this estimate addresses only the unclassified aspects of the bill. On that limited basis, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4681 would cost about $500 million over the 2015-2019 period, subject to the appropriation of the specified and estimated amounts. Section 104 would authorize appropriations of $528 million and $505 million for fiscal years 2014 and 2015, respectively, for the Intelligence Community Management Account (ICMA). The ICMA provides the principal source of funding for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and resources for managing the intelligence agencies. Because CBO anticipates that the bill would be enacted near the start of fiscal year 2015, we estimate that this provision would not affect spending in 2014. However, assuming the appropriation of the amount authorized for fiscal year 2015, CBO estimates that implementing section 104 would cost about $330 million in fiscal year 2015 and about $500 million over the 2015-2019 period."
