ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 816, Diplomatic Support and Security Act of 2022   [open pdf - 160KB]

From the Document: "S. 816 would alter the Department of State's process for investigating serious security incidents at U.S. government missions overseas to promote a culture of risk management instead of risk avoidance. The bill also would require the department to include more information about risk assessments in its monthly briefings to the Congress. On the basis of information about the costs to prepare similar reports, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that satisfying that requirement would cost less than $500,000 over the 2022-2027 period. Such spending would be subject to the availability of appropriated funds. Under current law, the department must appoint an Accountability Review Board to investigate a security breach caused by foreign intelligence activities or a security incident involving loss of life, serious injury, or significant destruction of property. Such boards determine whether security measures were adequate and properly implemented and whether to subject any employees who are found accountable to adverse personnel actions. The board can administer oaths, issue subpoenas, and require testimony and depositions."
