Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1761: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018 [open pdf - 52KB]
"S. 1761 would authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2018 for intelligence activities of the U.S. government, the Intelligence Community Management Account (ICMA), and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System (CIARDS). The bill also would create or modify other programs across the intelligence community and provide higher rates of pay to certain employees across the entire federal government. CBO [Congressional Budget Office] does not provide estimates for classified programs; therefore, this estimate addresses only the unclassified aspects of the bill. In addition, CBO cannot provide estimates for certain provisions in the unclassified portion of the bill because they concern classified programs. Finally, we are not able, at this time, to estimate the cost of a provision that would increase the pay rates for employees of the federal government who work in cyber security. On that limited basis, CBO estimates that implementing the unclassified provisions of the bill would cost $562 million over the 2018-2022 period, subject to appropriation of the specified and estimated amounts."
