ABSTRACT

Foreign Affairs Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) Funding: Background and Current Status [Updated March 4, 2019]   [open pdf - 440KB]

From the Document: "The 116th Congress may debate Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) funding levels in the context of the FY2020 foreign affairs and defense budgets. A key feature of OCO funds is their effective exemption, like emergency funds, from the discretionary spending limits established by the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA, P.L. 112-25). Some Members have suggested that this exemption provides agencies with additional budget cushioning and flexibility, allowing defense and nondefense funding to exceed the spending caps."
