    Sec. 8134. Designation of America's National World War II 
Museum. (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) The National D-Day Museum, operated in New 
        Orleans, Louisiana by an educational foundation, has 
        been established with the vision ``to celebrate the 
        American Spirit''.
            (2) The National D-Day Museum is the only museum in 
        the United States that exists for the exclusive purpose 
        of interpreting the American experience during the 
        World War II years (1939-1945) on both the battlefront 
        and the home front and, in doing so, covers all of the 
        branches of the Armed Forces and the Merchant Marine.
            (3) The National D-Day Museum was founded by the 
        preeminent American historian, Stephen E. Ambrose, as a 
        result of a conversation with President Dwight D. 
        Eisenhower in 1963, when the President and former 
        Supreme Commander, Allied Expeditionary Forces in 
        Europe, credited Andrew Jackson Higgins, the chief 
        executive officer of Higgins Industries in New Orleans, 
        as the ``man who won the war for us'' because the 
        12,000 landing craft designed by Higgins Industries 
        made possible all of the amphibious invasions of World 
        War II and carried American soldiers into every theatre 
        of the war.
            (4) The National D-Day Museum, since its grand 
        opening on June 6, 2000, the 56th anniversary of the D-
        Day invasion of Normandy, has attracted nearly 
        1,000,000 visitors from around the world, 85 percent of 
        whom have been Americans from across the country.
            (5) American World War II veterans, called the 
        ``greatest generation'' of the Nation, are dying at the 
        rapid rate of more than 1,200 veterans each day, 
        creating an urgent need to preserve the stories, 
        artifacts, and heroic achievements of that generation.
            (6) The United States has a need to preserve 
        forever the knowledge and history of the Nation's most 
        decisive achievement in the 20th century and to portray 
        that history to citizens, visitors, and school children 
        for centuries to come.
            (7) Congress, recognizing the need to preserve this 
        knowledge and history, appropriated funds in 1992 to 
        authorize the design and construction of The National 
        D-Day Museum in New Orleans to commemorate the epic 
        1944 Normandy invasion, and subsequently appropriated 
        additional funds in 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003 to 
        help expand the exhibits in the museum to include the 
        D-Day invasions in the Pacific Theatre of Operations 
        and the other campaigns of World War II.
            (8) The State of Louisiana and thousands of donors 
        and foundations across the country have contributed 
        millions of dollars to help build this national 
        institution.
            (9) The Board of Trustees of The National D-Day 
        Museum is national in scope and diverse in its makeup.
            (10) The World War II Memorial now under 
        construction on the National Mall in Washington, the 
        District of Columbia, will always be the memorial in 
        our Nation where people come to remember America's 
        sacrifices in World War II, while The National D-Day 
        Museum will always be the museum of the American 
        experience in the World War II years (1939-1945), where 
        people come to learn about Americans' experiences 
        during that critical period, as well as a place where 
        the history of our Nation's monumental struggle against 
        worldwide aggression by would-be oppressors is 
        preserved so that future generations can understand the 
        role the United States played in the preservation and 
        advancement of democracy and freedom in the middle of 
        the 20th century.
            (11) The National D-Day Museum seeks to educate a 
        diverse group of audiences through its collection of 
        artifacts, photographs, letters, documents, and first-
        hand personal accounts of the participants in the war 
        and on the home front during one of history's darkest 
        hours.
            (12) The National D-Day Museum is devoted to the 
        combat experience of United States citizen soldiers in 
        all of the theatres of World War II and to the heroic 
        efforts of the men and women on the home front who 
        worked tirelessly to support the troops and the war 
        effort.
            (13) The National D-Day Museum continues to add to 
        and maintain one of the largest personal history 
        collections in the United States of the men and women 
        who fought in World War II and who served on the home 
        front.
            (14) No other museum describes as well the 
        volunteer spirit that arose throughout the United 
        States and united the country during the World War II 
        years.
            (15) The National D-Day Museum is engaged in a 
        250,000 square foot expansion to include the Center for 
        the Study of the American Spirit, an advanced format 
        theatre, and a new United States pavilion.
            (16) The planned ``We're All in this Together'' 
        exhibit will describe the role every State, 
        commonwealth, and territory played in World War II, and 
        the computer database and software of The National D-
        Day Museum's educational program will be made available 
        to the teachers and school children of every State, 
        commonwealth, and territory.
            (17) The National D-Day Museum is an official 
        Smithsonian affiliate institution with a formal 
        agreement to borrow Smithsonian artifacts for future 
        exhibitions.
            (18) Le Memorial de Caen in Normandy, France has 
        formally recognized The National D-Day Museum as its 
        official partner in a Patriotic Alliance signed on 
        October 16, 2002, by both museums.
            (19) The official Battle of the Bulge museums in 
        Luxembourg and the American Battlefield Monuments 
        Commission are already collaborating with The National 
        D-Day Museum on World War II exhibitions.
            (20) For all of these reasons, it is appropriate to 
        designate The National D-Day Museum as ``America's 
        National World War II Museum''.
    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this section are, through 
the designation of The National D-Day Museum as ``America's 
National World War II Museum'', to express the United States 
Government's support for--
            (1) the continuing preservation, maintenance, and 
        interpretation of the artifacts, documents, images, and 
        history collected by the museum;
            (2) the education of the American people as to the 
        American experience in combat and on the home front 
        during the World War II years, including the conduct of 
        educational outreach programs for teachers and students 
        throughout the United States;
            (3) the operation of a premier facility for the 
        public display of artifacts, photographs, letters, 
        documents, and personal histories from the World War II 
        years (1939-1945);
            (4) the further expansion of the current European 
        and Pacific campaign exhibits in the museum, including 
        the Center for the Study of the American Spirit for 
        education; and
            (5) ensuring the understanding by all future 
        generations of the magnitude of the American 
        contribution to the Allied victory in World War II, the 
        sacrifices made to preserve freedom and democracy, and 
        the benefits of peace for all future generations in the 
        21st century and beyond.
    (c) Designation of ``America's National World War II 
Museum''.--The National D-Day Museum, New Orleans, Louisiana,

the following:
            (1) The effects of the contractual offset

        base of the United States and what actions have been 
        taken to prevent or ameliorate any serious adverse 
        effects on such subsectors.
            (2) The extent, if any, to which the contractual 
        offset arrangements and memoranda of understanding and 
        related agreements have provided for technology 
        transfer that would significantly and adversely affect 
        the national technology and industrial base.
            (3) The extent to which the use of such contractual

                into consideration the results of the 
                interagency review, determines that such 
                memorandum of understanding or a related 
                agreement has or is likely to have a 
                significant adverse effect on United States 
                industry that outweighs the benefits of 
                entering into or implementing such memorandum 
                or agreement; and
                    (B) the requirements under section 2534(d)

                            (i) a waiver granted under such 
                        section not impede cooperative programs 
                        entered into between the Department of 
                        Defense and a foreign country and not

                        defense items that is entered into in

                        title; and
                            (ii) the country with respect to 
                        which the waiver is granted not 
                        discriminate against defense items 
                        produced in the United States to a 
                        greater degree than the United States 
                        discriminates against defense items 
                        produced in that country.

Committee reports, the conference report and accompanying joint 
explanatory statement of the managers of the Committee of 
Conference, the related classified annexes and reports, and the 
P-1 and R-1 budget justification documents as subsequently 
modified by Congressional action. The following exception to 
the above definition shall apply: for the Military Personnel 
and the Operation and Maintenance accounts, the term ``program, 
project, and activity'' is defined as the appropriations 
accounts contained in the Department of Defense Appropriations 
Act.
      At the time the President submits his budget for fiscal 
year 2005, the conferees direct the Department of Defense to 
transmit to the congressional defense committees budget 
justification documents to be known as the ``M-1'' and ``O-1'' 
which shall identify, at the budget activity, activity group, 
and subactivity group level, the amounts requested by the 
President to be appropriated to the Department of Defense for 
military personnel and operation and maintenance in any budget 
request, or amended budget request, for fiscal year 2005.

                         Special Interest Items

      Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
shown in the project level adjustment tables or items 
identified in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or 
``only to'' in this Statement, are congressional interest items 
for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming (DD 1414). Each 
of these items must be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the 
stated amount, or a revised amount if changed during the 
conference or if otherwise specifically addressed in the 
conference report. These items remain special interest items 
whether or not they are repeated in a subsequent conference 
report or Statement.

                         Reprogramming Guidance

      The conferees note that the conference report 
accompanying Public Law 108-7 provided a temporary increase in 
the thresholds for the prior approval reprogramming of funds 
for the procurement and research, development, test and 
evaluation accounts of the Department of Defense. The conferees 
wish to emphasize that this revision was intended to effect 
only the execution of funds available for fiscal year 2003.
      The conferees are aware that the Department of Defense 
believes a greater degree of latitude is needed to best utilize 
the resources appropriated by the Congress. The conferees have 
long held that better management and budget preparation is the 
solution to DoD's needs, not greater fiscal flexibility which 
would result in less accountability to America's taxpayers. It 
is true that the effect of inflation has diluted the value of 
numerical below threshold limits. The conferees, therefore, 
agree to continue the temporary reprogramming threshold 
increases, approved for fiscal year 2003, for procurement and 
research, development, test and evaluation funds provided in 
this Act for fiscal year 2004. The conferees believe the 
Defense Department needs to provide more convincing arguments 
if it expects the Committees to approve this change 
permanently. The conferees also want to be clear that the 
approved below threshold reprogramming limitations are the 
specific dollar threshold allowed for fiscal year 2003, or 20 
percent of any specific line item, which ever is less.
      The conferees direct that the Secretary of Defense 
provide guidance to this effect to the military Services and 
Defense-Wide activities within 15 days of enactment of this Act 
and provide the congressional defense committees with a copy of 
this guidance.

              Timeliness of Budget Justification Materials

      The conferees concur with Senate Report 108-87 regarding 
the timeliness of budget justification materials received from 
the Department of Defense, and expect the problem to be 
resolved with the fiscal year 2005 budget estimate.

                            Classified Annex

      Adjustments to classified programs are addressed in the 
classified annex accompanying this report.


<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                        Accuracy of Obligations

      The conferees recommend a reduction of $115,000,000 to 
the budget request, based on a General Accounting Office (GAO) 
review of prior year unobligated and unexpended military 
personnel account balances. The Services certify the accuracy 
of present and prior year obligation balances annually; 
however, not all of the funds obligated are expended, and those 
unexpended balances are not always identified in the annual 
review certification process. Because the Services account data 
continue to show a pattern of underspending their appropriated 
funds, the conferees believe that the fiscal year 2004 military 
personnel budget request is overstated and can be reduced.
      The conferees believe the Services can improve their 
appropriation balance review below the budget activity to 
ensure that funds are properly obligated and expended. The 
conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to ensure that the 
Services strengthen the annual review process by including a 
review of the accuracy of prior year appropriations below the 
budget activity level. To facilitate this review, the financial 
management improvement initiative should include financial 
decision-making processes that provide transparency of 
disbursements at the same level as the budget submission.

          Family Separation Allowance and Imminent Danger Pay

      The conferees recommend $128,000,000 above the budget 
request for Family Separation Allowance and Imminent Danger Pay 
instead of $210,205,000 as proposed by the Senate. These funds 
are provided for increases in Family Separation Allowance and 
Imminent Danger Pay as authorized in Public Law 108-11.

                        Force Structure Changes

      The conferees recommend a total of $147,100,000 in the 
military personnel, operation and maintenance, and procurement 
accounts for force structure that was not included in the 
budget request, as follows:

                     Travel of Military Dependents

      The conferees are concerned that spouses and dependents 
of deployed military personnel often do not have the financial 
means to visit their family members. Such travel could help 
ease the difficult burden of managing a household. The 
conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to submit a proposal 
for a program that would provide travel assistance to spouses 
and dependents of deployed military personnel. This proposal is 
to be submitted to the congressional defense committees before 
presentation of the fiscal year 2005 budget estimate.

      Realignment of Base Operations Support (BOS) and Facilities 
      Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization (FSRM) Resources

      The conferees concur with Senate Report 108-87 regarding 
the realignment of BOS and FSRM resources, which will allow for 
more careful management of installation resources and better 
oversight. However, rather than create a new budget activity, 
the conferees have consolidated Navy BOS and FSRM resources in 
budget activity one, as detailed in the table above.

                   Naval Shipyard Apprentice Program

      The conferees have included an additional $1,700,000 in 
Operation and Maintenance, Navy for the Naval Shipyard 
Apprentice Program, bringing total funding for that program to 
$30,580,000. The conferees direct the Navy to induct classes of 
no fewer than 125 apprentices, at each of the naval shipyards 
during fiscal year 2004. The conferees further direct the Navy 
to include the costs of the fiscal year 2005 class of 
apprentices in the FY 2005 budget request.

         Blended Learning Initiative/Specialized Skill Training

      The conferees agree to provide an additional $2,800,000 
only for the Blended Learning Initiative to build multi-purpose 
electronic classrooms capable of delivering Integrated Learning 
Environment content for the United States Navy. Classrooms will 
incorporate traditional platform instruction, synchronous and 
asynchronous video, teletraining/video, teleconferencing, and 
web-based training.

                   Northern Edge Realignment of Funds

      The conferees concur with Senate Report 108-87 regarding 
the funds for Exercise Northern Edge, and recommend a 
realignment of funds into Operation and Maintenance, Navy. 
After this realignment, a total of $4,700,000 is available in 
Operation and Maintenance, Navy to support Exercise Northern 
Edge. For fiscal year 2005 and subsequent years, the conferees 
direct the Secretary of Defense to provide funds in a similar 
fashion.

              Configuration Management Information System

      The conferees provided an additional $6,500,000 in 
Operation and Maintenance, Navy only for the Configuration 
Management Information System (CMIS). The funding should be 
used to further develop a knowledge management approach to 
maintenance planning processes using Configuration Management 
Information System data.

                      Alameda Point Naval Station

      The conferees are aware that the former Alameda Point 
Naval Station is currently being considered as a candidate for 
early transfer, based on the pending agreement between the Navy 
and the City of Alameda for reuse, development, and property 
preservation. The conferees are further aware that the 
Administrator of the EPA must approve the deferral of the 
CERCLA covenant. The conferees believe that early transfer of 
the land and associated facilities to the City of Alameda could 
serve as a model for military base conversion in an urban 
environment. Accordingly, the conferees expect the Secretary of 
the Navy and the Administrator of the Environmental Protection 
Agency to work cooperatively to achieve this early transfer in 
the most expeditious manner possible.

                Repair of Military Sealift Command Ships

      The conferees are concerned that a disproportionate 
number of Military Sealift Command (MSC) ships are being 
repaired in foreign shipyards. The Secretary of the Navy is 
directed to provide a report to the congressional defense 
committees which describes the Navy's policy for repairing MSC 
ships in foreign shipyards, analyzes trends in funding for and 
level of repair work done on MSC ships in foreign and domestic 
yards, and reviews the consequences of reallocating MSC ship 
repair work to domestic shipyards. The report should be 
submitted no later than April 15, 2004.

       Feasibility Study of Biennial International Air-Trade Show

      The conference agreement provides an additional 
$1,000,000 in Operation and Maintenance, Air Force only to 
provide assistance to a community, to be selected by the 
Secretary of Defense, for expenses of a study by that community 
of the feasibility of the establishment and operation of a 
biennial international air-trade show in the area of the 
community, and to support initial implementation of the 
international air-trade show. The conferees expect that a 
competitive process will be used to select the community, and 
that preference will be given to communities that already 
sponsor an air show, have demonstrated a history of supporting 
air shows with local resources, and have a significant role in 
the aerospace community.

                 F-16 Simulator Motion Upgrade Program

      The conferees have provided an additional $1,000,000 in 
Operation and Maintenance, Air Force, to be used only for phase 
1 integration and testing of a pneumatic tactical motion 
control system for the ACES II ejection seat in the F-16 
Mission Training Center.

                             People Movers

      The conferees have provided an additional $500,000 in 
Operation and Maintenance, Air Force, to be used only to 
purchase 50 self-balancing, non-tandem, wheeled individual 
transportation devices to evaluate military utility of such 
devices at Tinker Air Force Base for a variety of military 
functions.

                   Contaminant Air Processing Systems

      The conferees commend the Air Force for standardizing 
mission critical equipment that allows Air Force personnel to 
be effectively processed after contact with biological, 
chemical or nuclear agents. The conferees encourage the 
Secretary of the Air Force to purchase contaminant air 
processing systems and related components to ensure all Air 
Force installations are standardized in this methodology and 
equipment.

provide the Indiana Air National Guard the immediate use of the 
50-acre laser bombing range located at Jefferson Proving Ground 
in southeastern Indiana.

of $221,369,000 as proposed by the House and $312,619,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

             Overseas Humanitarian, Disaster, and Civic Aid

      The conference agreement provides $59,000,000 for 
Overseas Humanitarian, Disaster, and Civic Aid.

                  Former Soviet Union Threat Reduction

      The conference agreement provides that $10,000,000 of the 
funds appropriated under this heading shall be available only 
to support the dismantling and disposal of nuclear submarines, 
submarine reactor components, and warheads in the Russian Far 
East, as proposed by the Senate. The House bill did not address 
this matter.
      The House report provided that $39,400,000 requested for 
the Proliferation Prevention Initiative (PPI) be redirected for 
the elimination of strategic nuclear delivery systems and for 
the establishment of on-site management offices. The Senate 
report did not address this matter. The managers direct that 
not to exceed $29,400,000 be made available for the PPI, and 
that the remaining funds be allocated as indicated in the House 
report. In addition, the managers direct that no funds shall be 
obligated for the Proliferation Prevention Initiative (PPI) 
until 15 days after the Under Secretary of Defense 
(Comptroller) reports in writing to the congressional defense 
committees on the following: (1) the degree to which the PPI is 
fully consistent with the authorization for, and core functions 
of, the Cooperative Threat Reduction (CRT) program; and (2) an 
explanation of how each proposed PPI country program leverages, 
rather than duplicates or replaces, other U.S. government 
programs.

                         Lead System Integrator

      The conferees direct the Undersecretary of Defense for 
Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology to submit a report to 
the congressional defense committees within 120-days of 
enactment of the fiscal year 2004 Defense Appropriations Act on 
steps the Department of Defense has taken to ensure that the 
Lead Systems Integrator (LSI) contracting mechanism maintains 
adequate safeguards. The report should include a thorough 
review of how the Department intends to assure that adequate 
firewalls exist between the parent company and the LSI entity 
on active contracts.

                      Stryker Brigade Combat Team

      In order to enhance Army transformation, the conferees 
agree to provide an additional $35,000,000 to ensure fielding 
of the fifth and sixth Stryker Brigade Combat Teams (SBCT). The 
conferees direct that funding be made available specifically 
for the advanced procurement for the fifth SBCT, 2/25 Infantry 
Division and sixth SBCT, 56th ARNG Brigade. The Department of 
Defense shall ensure that future budgetary and programmatic 
plans provide for fielding no fewer than six SBCTs by 2008.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                  Stryker Brigade Fielding Initiative

      The conferees have included $85,000,000 for the 
acceleration and successful fielding of the Army's Stryker 
Brigades, beginning with the 3rd SBCT. This increased funding 
shall provide necessary equipment, logistics and other 
procurement items to ensure an on-time and adequately equipped 
fielding of the Army's SBCTs. The conferees direct the 
Secretary of the Army to submit a report to the Committees on 
Appropriations within 120-days of enactment of the fiscal year 
2004 Defense Appropriations Act on the Army's plan to implement 
this funding guidance.

                     E-2C Aerodynamic Improvements

      The conferees are aware that the Navy has investigated 
the use of aerodynamic improvements such as strakes to obtain 
improvements in handling characteristics and wind-over-deck 
requirements of the E-2C thereby improving the safety and 
performance of this platform. The conferees urge the Navy to 
test and install boundary layer flow modifications to the E-2C 
using aerodynamic strakes.

                      USMC CH-46 Armor Replacement

      The conferees agree to provide $6,000,000 to procure 
lightweight armor for the CH-46. Replacing the existing steel 
armor with Kevlar will reduce the weight of the CH-46 by almost 
400 pounds, enabling the aircraft to carry two additional 
combat loaded troops without degrading protection.

                                  V-22

      The conferees urge the Department of the Navy to set 
aside funds available in this Act for the V-22 Osprey aircraft 
procurement program for cost reduction measures, consistent 
with past practices and levels.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                           Tactical Tomahawk

      The conferees agree to provide a total of $355,288,000 
instead of $485,588,000 as proposed by the House and 
$272,288,000 as proposed by the Senate. In addition, the 
conferees agree that the Navy may procure 350 missiles with 
these funds instead of the 450 missiles recommended by the 
House and the 267 missiles recommended by the Senate.
      The conferees do not agree to provide the $25,000,000 as 
proposed by the House for tooling and testing equipment, 
understanding that this requirement will be accommodated from 
within funds previously made available to the Department of 
Defense as part of the Emergency Wartime Supplemental 
Appropriations Act (Public Law 108-11).
      Multi-year procurement contracting authority. The 
conferees agree to approve the request for contracting 
authority for a multi-year procurement of the Tactical Tomahawk 
missile as proposed by the House.

                      ``Virginia'' Class Submarine

      The conferees agree to provide a total of $1,511,935,000 
as requested for full funding of the fiscal year 2004 Virginia 
Class submarine program as requested and proposed by the Senate 
instead of $1,236,935,000 as proposed by the House. In 
addition, the conferees agree to provide a total of 
$827,172,000 for the advance procurement of the future Virginia 
Class submarine program as proposed by the Senate instead of 
$886,286,000 as proposed by the House. The recommendation for 
advance procurement assumes a reduction of $59,000,000 for the 
fiscal year 2005 program as proposed by the Senate and a 
reduction of $65,000,000 for each of the fiscal year 2007 and 
2008 programs as proposed by the Senate.
      The conferees agree with the views expressed by both the 
House and the Senate with respect to the Navy's request for the 
Virginia Class submarine.
      Multi-year procurement contracting authority. The 
conferees agree with the Senate's proposal, approving multi-
year procurement contract authority for one Virginia Class 
submarine per year for the term of the five-years. The Navy's 
request to procure more than one submarine in fiscal year 2007 
and 2008 is denied and the funds requested for advance 
procurement of materials for these additional submarines have 
not been appropriated.
      The conferees did not lightly agree to the Navy's request 
for multi-year procurement for this program. The Navy's request 
for multi-year procurement in this instance is a significant 
departure from established practices and policies of the 
Department of Defense. The House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations have maintained that multi-year procurement 
authority should be granted in situations in which the Service 
has accepted a fully tested and proven system and a production 
capability has been fully established. In the case of this 
system, the lead ship, christened August 16, 2003, has not been 
fully tested and will not be delivered to the Navy until late 
2004.
      In addition, multi-year procurement authority should be 
applied in situations in which the program management and costs 
have stabilized and significant (at least 10 percent) cost 
savings are guaranteed with approval of such authority. The 
conferees agree that the increasing costs (31 percent increase 
over the previous year's estimate) and limited cost savings 
(approximately 4 percent) for this program, would under 
customary rules, not allow for its consideration for multi-year 
procurement authority.
      The conferees agree to deviate from traditional policy 
with respect to multi-year procurement authority in the case of 
the Virginia Class submarine with the expectation that such 
approval will serve to stabilize the program and reduce the 
overall costs to the government. Furthermore, the conferees 
agree that a multi-year contract for five submarines, or one 
per year, is in the best interests of the taxpayer. It is for 
these reasons that the conferees have provided multi-year 
procurement authority for the Virginia Class submarine. The 
Navy should note that the Committees on Appropriations will 
continue to closely monitor this program and may re-examine the 
decision to grant multi-year procurement authority if program 
milestones are not met or costs escalate.
      Current contractual agreement. The conferees find that 
the current contractual agreement for the Virginia Class 
submarine that the Navy awarded in August 2003, referred to as 
the ``block buy agreement,'' includes positive and negative 
aspects.
      The signing of the block buy agreement committed the Navy 
to purchasing six submarines over five years, two to be 
purchased in fiscal year 2007, which is a clear violation of 
both the House and Senate fiscal year 2004 Department of 
Defense Appropriations bills (H.R. 2658 and S. 1382). Neither 
of these bills approved the procurement of two submarines in 
fiscal year 2007 or 2008. Further, while the block grant 
agreement is subject to appropriations, should Congress not 
provide an appropriation for two submarines in 2007, the 
agreement allows for a drastic increase in overhead rates at 
the affected shipyards, causing a significant retroactive cost 
increase to the four previously purchased vessels.
      The conferees believe it was inappropriate for the Navy 
to enter into an agreement that disregarded Congressional views 
and subject taxpayers to additional costs should a future 
Congress choose not to purchase more than one submarine in 
2007.
      The conferees are pleased however, that the block grant 
agreement includes incentives for both the Navy and the 
commercial shipyards to meet schedule milestones and cost 
limitations. The conferees believe that the incentives included 
in the block grant buy agreement should be the beginning point 
in any future contract negotiations for construction, overhaul, 
and maintenance of Navy vessels. The conferees strongly 
encourage the Navy to continue pursuing contractual 
arrangements that maintain cost and schedule milestones, 
understanding that these contracts also require the Navy to 
enforce discipline in its requirements process to ensure that 
requests for workload increases do not jeopardize agreed to 
cost and schedule milestones.
      Information provided to Congress. The conferees agree 
with the Senate that the Navy must provide Congress with 
complete financial and program information on the Virginia 
Class submarine program.

                         Cruiser Modernization

      The conferees agree to provide $102,700,000 for the 
purpose of initiating a program to modernize and upgrade 22 
Ticonderoga Class AEGIS Cruisers. The funds provided for the 
program have been transferred from the Shipbuilding and 
Conversion, Navy account to the Weapons Procurement, Other 
Procurement and Operation and Maintenance, Navy appropriations.
      The conferees are pleased that the Navy has recently 
formalized the requirements and acquisition strategy for this 
program, but concur with the concerns expressed in the Senate 
report regarding upgrading, CG 71, one of the newest and most 
modern Cruisers in the fleet before upgrading legacy assets. 
The conferees agree the Navy should pursue a plan that would 
modernize the Baseline II or legacy fleet assets at a point 
earlier than the current strategy allows. Therefore, while the 
conference agreement includes funding for CG 71 to be the first 
vessel of the program, the conferees direct the Navy to revise 
its strategy to provide for an earlier modernization of the 
legacy Baseline II vessels and fully fund this revised strategy 
within the fiscal year 2005 budget request.

                     Thermal Imaging Sensor System

      The conferees are pleased with the progress that has been 
made on upgrading the Thermal Imaging Sensor System (TISS), 
which can provide significant increases in force protection. 
The conferees request the Navy consider increasing funds for 
TISS beyond the $4,400,000 provided in this Act.

                    Transport Aircraft Requirements

      The conferees direct that not later than 180 days after 
enactment of this legislation, the Secretary of the Air Force 
shall provide a report to the congressional defense committees 
detailing a proposed approach for addressing official air 
travel requirements and prioritization of aircraft use 
associated with Special Air Missions. The report shall include 
the current retirement schedule of existing aircraft, preferred 
replacement aircraft types, quantities, acquisition 
alternatives for both new and used aircraft, corresponding 
total cost of operation, and base(s) of assignment.

             U-2 Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASARS)

      The conferees agree with the concerns expressed by the 
House with respect to the ASARS program, amending to January 
15, 2004, the date for which the requested report is due.

                Predator B Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

      The conferees agree that the Air Force shall submit no 
later than December 1, 2003, a report that addresses the 
operational requirement for the Predator B UAV and a 
development and acquisition plan for achieving that operational 
requirement with a steady production rate by 2006.

                         Combat Training Ranges

      The conferees have reduced the requests for Combat 
Training Ranges by $4,200,000. Funding for this program has 
been reduced due to historically slow execution of program 
funds included in the request. The conferees expect that this 
reduction will be applied proportionately among the various 
non-Congressional interest items and activities within this 
program element.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                  Advanced Seal Delivery System (ASDS)

      The House provided the funds as requested for advance 
procurement for long lead items associated with the second 
ASDS, but directed that none of the funds be obligated before 
the first ASDS satisfactorily passes operational evaluation and 
before the Milestone C decision assessing affordability and 
effectiveness is completed. The Senate transferred the funds 
requested to Research, Development, Test & Evaluation, Defense-
Wide. The conferees agree to provide the budget request for 
advance procurement and concur with the direction of the House. 
The conferees further direct that none of the funds provided 
may be obligated or expended until 15 days after the Secretary 
of the Navy notifies the defense committees in writing of the 
Milestone C decision and provides a detailed report on the 
program's revised cost estimate and future budget requirements 
as validated by the Cost Analysis and Improvement Group.

                           Air National Guard

      The Senate recommended a specific increase of $20,000,000 
for F-15 Engine Kits within the amounts provided to the Air 
National Guard. The House concurs and the conferees agree to 
provide $20,000,000 for F-15 Engine Kits.

                       Items of Special Interest

      The conferees agree that the National Guard and Reserve 
equipment program shall be executed by the heads of the Guard 
and Reserve components with priority consideration for 
miscellaneous equipment appropriations given to the following 
items: Air National Guard Threat Emitter, Handheld Standoff 
Mine Detection System, Lightweight Maintenance Enclosure, 
Intelligence Infrastructure, Improved Target Acquisition 
System, F-16 Block 42 Re-engining Program, RAID Helicopter 
Electro-Optical Sensor Upgrade, Common Bridge Transporter, 
Extended Cold Weather Clothing System, F-16 and A-10 LITENING 
AT Targeting Pod, M-COFT XXI, Theater Airborne Reconnaissance 
System, Expandable Light Air Mobility Shelters, Movement

                       Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

      The conferees agree to provide a total of $4,322,623,000 
for continued development and testing of the F-35, Joint Strike 
Fighter (JSF). This recommended level is $43,200,000 below the 
budget request, $88,800,000 above the level recommended by the 
House, and $60,000,000 below the level recommended by the 
Senate.
      The conferees agree to a reduction of $54,000,000 for 
excessive management support, as proposed by the House, a 
reduction of $56,000,000 and an increase of $52,800,000, as 
proposed by the Senate, based on the inappropriate application 
of inflation adjustments, and an increase of $14,000,000 for 
risk reduction on the F-136 interchangeable engine. The 
conference agreement to reverse the decision of the JSF program 
office with respect to the application of inflation 
adjustments, is based on the understanding that the ``across 
the board inflationary adjustment'' was applied 
disproportionately to the F-136 interchangeable engine 
development, resulting in a $56,000,000 reduction to this 
development effort. The conference agreement redistributes this 
inflation adjustment to the entire program and restores 
$52,800,000 to the engine development program, as proposed by 
the Senate.

            Withholding of Research and Development Funding

      The conferees are concerned with the practice of 
withholding a percentage of research and development funding 
from programs, projects and activities. The conferees are also 
concerned that many Department of Defense organizations are 
charging ``taxes'' on funds that are appropriated to or pass 
through the control of the organization, and that the practices 
of withholding and ``taxing'' appropriated funds appears 
widespread throughout the research and development community, 
including headquarters, laboratories, and other research 
entities.
      The conferees believe that the practice of altering the 
level of appropriated funds via administrative ``withholds'' or 
the administration of ``taxes'' without specific direction from 
the Congress, violates the intent of Congress.
      The conferees, therefore, direct the Comptroller General 
to review all of the research and development appropriation 
accounts, at all levels, and submit a report to the House and 
Senate Committees on Appropriations, no later than March 1, 
2004, that details what fiscal year 2003 and 2004 programs, 
projects and activities have been subject to administrative 
withholds and ``taxes'' and the programs, projects and 
activities to which these amounts were applied.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                          Future Combat System

      The conferees share the view expressed in the reports 
accompanying both the House- and Senate-passed versions of the 
fiscal year 2004 Department of Defense Appropriations bill that 
the Army must improve the structure of the budget estimates in 
support of the Future Combat System (FCS). Adding detail to the 
budget justification materials is essential to justify the 
requested level of funding which totals $1,701,331,000 in 
fiscal year 2004 and $13,243,904,000 over the Future Years 
Defense Plan (FYDP).
      Accordingly, the conferees direct that the Army establish 
two separate program elements for the purpose of supporting the 
FCS budget estimates. One program element shall include funding 
estimates for the Non-Line of Sight Cannon and resupply vehicle 
(NLOS-C). For fiscal year 2004, the conferees direct that 
$353,242,000 of the funds requested for the FCS program be made 
available only for NLOS-C. The conferees recognize that NLOS-C 
is an element of the FCS system of systems and that development 
of NLOS-C must be coordinated with other elements of the FCS 
program. The conferees further direct that this program is a 
special interest item subject to prior approval reprogramming 
procedures for the cumulative value of transfers in excess of 
$20,000,000. In addition, the conferees direct the Secretary of 
the Army to provide financial execution data on the NLOS-C 
element of FCS including, but not limited to: obligations, 
disbursements, and transfers.
      The balance of the funding requested for fiscal year 
2004, $1,348,089,000, shall be divided into the following 
projects within a separate program element:

                        [In thousands of dollars]

Non-Line of Sight (NLOS) Launch system..................         102,971
Reconnaissance Platforms and Sensors....................         284,925
Unmanned Ground Vehicles................................         186,768
Unattended Sensors......................................          17,432
Sustainment.............................................         139,239
Command and Control.....................................         334,730
Manned Ground Vehicles..................................         282,024

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to provide 
30 days prior notification to the congressional defense 
committees on the cumulative value of transfers in excess of 
$20,000,000 into or out of these projects. In addition, the 
conferees direct the Secretary of the Army to provide quarterly 
financial reports to the congressional defense committees that 
include, but are not limited to obligations, disbursements, and 
transfers for each of these projects.

          Defense Language Institute Research and Development

      The conferees note that the Defense Language Institute 
(DLI) is funded primarily through the Operation and 
Maintenance, Army account. However, the conferees are aware 
that DLI often undertakes research and development work on 
technologies related to language, language learning, and 
curriculum development. Accordingly, the conferees urge the 
Secretary of the Army to establish a new program element code 
within the Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Army 
account for the purpose of funding research and development 
efforts at DLI. The conferees also recommend that the Army 
provide a reasonable level of funding to support this effort 
from the resources provided in this Act.

                Army MEMS-GPS/INS Technology Development

      The conferees agree to provide an additional $8,500,000 
to continue development and testing essential to achieve a low-
cost inertial guidance system using high-g MEMS technology and 
producing an anti-jam ``ultra-deeply coupled GPS/INS hardware/
software system'' from funding included for the Excalibur 
artillery program. The conferees expect this joint Army-Navy 
effort to be robustly funded in the fiscal year 2005 budget 
request and in the Future Years' Defense Program.

                      Objective Force Cost Module

      In fiscal year 2003, the conferees provided $3,600,000 to 
fund the initial development phase of the Objective Force Cost 
Module (OFCM), a cost analysis and estimating tool critical to 
the on-time and on-budget deployment of the Future Combat 
System (FCS). Given the positive development of the OFCM tool 
to date and continuing concerns that the FCS program keep its 
deployment and budget schedule, the conferees encourage to Army 
to continue fiscal year 2004 funding of the OFCM program with 
available FCS funds.

         Neurotoxin Exposure Treatment Research Program (NETRP)

      The conferees are aware that the United States Army 
Medical Research and Materiel Command is conducting excellent 
research in investigating the underlying biologic mechanisms 
and therapeutic interventions of neurodegenerative effects 
caused by deployment, environmental and occupational exposures. 
Therefore, the conferees recommend $26,000,000 for the 
continuation of this research into Parkinsons and other 
neurological disorders. The conferees note the success of the 
collaborative work between the military, a non-profit 
organization and an academic laboratory with distinguished 
scientific credentials in this field that has helped accelerate 
NETRP research and would urge the Army to continue its support 
of this effort.

                Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Master Plan

      The conferees agree with the House position on the Navy's 
development of the Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Master Plan. 
The conferees request the Navy provide the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations with a full report of the results 
and recommendations of ``Task Force ASW'' as well as its plan 
for implementing the recommendations.

                            ``S'' Band Radar

      The conferees have agreed to fund the Navy's ``S'' Band 
radar development as part of the DD(X) effort, as opposed to a 
separate development effort as proposed by the House. The 
conferees make this recommendation based on the Navy's decision 
to choose the ``S'' Band radar over its original recommendation 
of the ``L'' Band radar for DD(X).

                Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC)

      The conferees understand that the Navy is potentially 
pursuing a new strategy for Cooperative Engagement Capability 
(CEC) development and system configuration. The conferees 
understand that no decision has yet been made to change the 
strategy as presented in the fiscal year 2004 budget request 
which calls for spiral development of hardware and software to 
a Block 2 configuration. The conferees understand that the Navy 
may potentially alter the development and acquisition strategy 
in such a manner as to affect the Block 2 program presented in 
the fiscal year 2004 budget request.
      The conferees agree that should the Navy determine an 
alternative strategy for CEC, the additional funds provided in 
this Act for CEC Block 2 may be merged with and be available 
for purposes similar to the purposes for which appropriated. 
The conferees further agree that the Navy shall ensure the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations are fully 
apprised of the Navy's plans relative to changes in the CEC 
acquisition strategy.

          Tac Air Directed Infra-Red Counter-Measure (TADIRCM)

      The conferees agree with the House position with respect 
to the development of Tac Air Directed Infra-Red Counter-
Measure (TADIRCM) and direct that an initial suitability 
assessment obtained through the Early Operational Assessment 
(EOA) be submitted to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations within 60 days of completion of the EOA.

          Tactical Control System for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

      The conferees agree with the House position that the 
fiscal year 2004 request for the multi-Service Tactical Control 
System (TCS) for multi-Service UAV control, is focused on Navy-
centric UAV systems that are neither multi-Service nor 
interoperable with other UAV programs. The conferees also agree 
the Navy has a requirement for a single system that will 
support the operation of multiple UAVs from both fixed and 
moving platforms and understand that the FireScout and Global 
Hawk Maritime Demonstration platforms, the focus of the 2004 
TCS efforts, meet current Navy needs.
      Therefore, the conferees direct the Navy to restructure 
the existing TCS program to focus on its requirements. The 
conferees agree to provide $25,000,000 to support the continued 
development of the Navy's TCS program required to achieve this 
critical capability. The conferees direct that no fiscal year 
2004 funds may be obligated or expended for TCS until the Navy 
submits a report to the House and Senate Committees on 
Appropriations, which details its plan for this restructured 
program. At a minimum, the report shall include the Navy's 
requirement for the TCS system, a plan to meet standards based 
on interoperability, and the Navy's UAV roadmap that justifies 
the requirement for TCS.

                           Helios Replacement

      The conferees encourage the Office of Naval Research to 
examine developing a high altitude, long endurance unmanned 
aerial vehicle to replace the Helios in order to increase 
capabilities for high data rate communications and remote 
sensing.

              Future SIGINT Requirements/Joint ACS Program

      The conferees are pleased that in reviewing its future 
SIGINT requirements, the Navy is pursuing a partnership with 
the Army in the development, testing, and procurement of a 
Joint multi-intelligence sensor and platform, the Aerial Common 
Sensor (ACS).
      The conferees have provided $4,000,000 for the Navy to 
initiate and pursue the development and fielding of this Joint 
ACS program. The conferees direct the Navy to report to the 
House and Senate Committees on Appropriations by March 1, 2004, 
on its requirements and future acquisition plans for this 
program.

                  Uniformed Services UAV Requirements

      The development and use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles 
(UAVs) has become integral to each of the Uniformed Services 
warfighting and operational plans. In many instances, there are 
common requirements for these systems and similar technologies 
that can meet these requirements.
      The conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense for 
Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, in consultation with the 
Chief of Naval Operations, the Commandant of the Marine Corps, 
the Chief of Staff of the Army, the Chief of Staff of the Air 
Force, and the Commandant of the Coast Guard, to submit a 
report, no later than April 1, 2004, to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, which details the common UAV 
requirements for each of the Uniformed Services.

                          Littoral Combat Ship

      The conferees have included $168,071,000 for continued 
research and development of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), the 
amount recommended by the House and $10,000,000 above the 
amount recommended by the Senate.
      The conferees agree with the House language regarding the 
need to refine the Navy's concept of operations in the littoral 
battlespace to ensure that there is no duplication of effort 
between LCS and other platforms. To this end, the conferees 
direct the Navy to provide a report to the House and Senate 
Committees on Appropriations, no later than March 1, 2004 that 
details the missions LCS will conduct in the littoral battle 
space, which platforms and systems currently conduct these 
missions, and what changes, if any, will be made to future 
years' budgets to eliminate any duplication of effort.
      In addition, in order to maintain focus on the LCS' 
mission module development and integration, the conferees agree 
that $51,000,000 of the funds provided for LCS is available 
only for these efforts.

 Unforeseen Impact of Base Operations Funding on Future Naval Research 
                         Laboratory Activities

      The conferees are concerned about changes in the 
management of base operations funding and its potential to 
adversely impact ongoing and emergent research activities. The 
conferees urge the Navy to be sensitive to the special nature 
of such research activities and to ensure sufficient 
flexibility to accommodate unforeseen research needs.

        Use of Research and Development Funding for Shipbuilding

      The conferees agree with the Senate concerning the Navy's 
plans to fund the purchase of ships--DD(X) and LCS--in fiscal 
year 2005 within the Research, Development, Test and Evaluation 
(RDT&E) appropriation. The conferees believe that the use of 
research and development funding to procure first ships of a 
class is not in keeping with budgetary guidelines regarding 
full-funding. The conferees agree that should the fiscal year 
2005 request include these ships--DD(X) and LCS--within RDT&E, 
all research and development acquisition rules shall apply, 
including technology readiness reviews, milestone decisions, 
and test and evaluation before these ships may transition to 
procurement.

                   Electronic Warfare Transition Plan

      The Senate included report language on the Air Force's 
electronic warfare transition plan. The conferees remain 
concerned about this issue and expect the Air Force to work 
with the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to address 
the concerns raised in the Senate report.

                            F-15E Squadrons

      The conferees have reduced funding for F-15E Squadrons by 
$9,000,000. Activities in this program have continually had 
schedule delays of up to 2 quarters, and the account is a 
frequent source for reprogrammings and higher Air Force 
priorities. The conferees note that this reduction is taken 
only for the reasons stated and without prejudice against 
efforts to field Operational Flight Program Suite 5, which the 
conferees deem to be a high priority.

                         Next Generation Bomber

      The conferees have included $45,000,000 for acceleration 
of a program to develop a next generation long-range strike 
bomber. Many technologies needed for development of a next 
generation bomber can also be demonstrated and incorporated in 
the existing bomber fleet. The conferees urge that from the 
funds provided for next generation bomber development, the Air 
Force give consideration to the design and demonstration of a 
data collection capability as an upgrade to the Defense 
Management System on the B-2 bomber.

            Low Bandwidth Rural Telemedicine (Lbrts) System

      The conferees encourage the Air Force to accelerate the 
deployment and integration of the Low Bandwidth Rural 
Telemedicine (LBRTS) System from seven years to three years to 
enhance the Air Force's telemedicine infrastructure. Any 
funding for this program shall be made available from program 
element 0602202F.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                       Technology Venture Center

      The conferees agree to provide $1,600,000 for the 
Technology Venture Center in Montana and for an entrepreneurial 
training/virtual business incubator in Alaska using science and 
technology.

                Spray Cooling Manufacturing Engineering

      The conferees are aware of the major contributions that 
DMEA's spray cooling program has made to a number of defense 
programs through its ability to allow commercial electronics to 
operate successfully in harsh military environments while 
reducing size and weight. The conferees urge the department to 
standardize spray cooling technology components and products to 
facilitate their migration to other military programs. 
Accordingly, the conferees have added funding above the 
president's request to continue its efforts to standardize this 
important technology. The conferees also encourage DMEA to 
continue its work with the services to increase service 
familiarity with this advanced technology.

                 Terrorism Information Awareness (TIA)

      The conferees agree with the Senate position which 
eliminates funding for the Terrorism Information Awareness 
(TIA) program within the Defense Advanced Research Projects 
Agency (DARPA). The conferees are concerned about the 
activities of the Information Awareness Office and direct that 
the Office be terminated immediately. The only research 
projects previously under the jurisdiction of the Information 
Awareness Office that may continue under DARPA are: Bio-Event 
Advanced Leading Indicator Recognition Technology, Rapid 
Analytic Wargaming, Wargaming the Asymmetric Environment, and 
Automated Speech and Text Exploitation in Multiple Languages 
(including Babylon and Symphony). The conferees find these 
programs are not components of TIA for the purposes of section 
8131. The conference agreement does not restrict the National 
Foreign Intelligence Program from using processing, analysis 
and collaboration tools for counterterrorism foreign 
intelligence purposes.

               Chemical Imaging for Food and Water Safety

      The conferees are aware of recent research which rapidly 
measures the presence of pathogens in food and water by 
chemical imaging. Successful implementation of this technology 
will have a significant impact on the soldier in the field and 
can be applied to commercial uses as well. The conferees 
encourage the Department to consider further research in this 
field.

                Chemical and Biological Defense Program

      Within funds provided for the Chem-Bio Defense 
Initiatives Fund, the conferees recommend the creation of an 
end-to-end point of care based diagnostic network to combat 
terrorism. Funds should be distributed to partnerships that 
combine universities and non-profit institutes with industrial 
partners to insure rapid translation into clinical use.

                     Ground-Based Midcourse Defense

      Additional funding is provided to the Ground-based 
Midcourse Defense program to procure additional Ground Based 
Interceptors at Fort Greely; to enhance security measures to 
protect this strategic facility; and to accelerate installation 
of communications at Eareckson Air Station. The conferees 
direct the Director of the Missile Defense Agency to submit a 
report to the Committees on Appropriations within 120-days of 
enactment of the fiscal year 2004 Defense Appropriations Act on 
the Department's plan to implement this funding guidance.

                TITLE V--REVOLVING AND MANAGEMENT FUNDS

                     Defense Working Capital Funds

      The conferees recommend an appropriation of 
$1,641,507,000 for the Defense Working Capital Funds instead of 
$1,712,507,000 as proposed by the House or $1,449,007,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

                Defense Working Capital Fund Reductions

      The conferees concur with Senate Report 108-87 regarding 
the adequacy of budget justifications for the Defense Working 
Capital Funds. The conferees recommend a reduction of 
$80,000,000 to the budget estimate, to be distributed only as 
follows:

Working Capital Fund, Defense-Wide......................    -$40,000,000
Working Capital Fund, Air Force.........................    -$40,000,000

                  Meals Ready-to-Eat (MRE) Inventories

      The conferees are concerned that the current MRE 
inventory does not provide adequate stock levels to meet 
documented war reserve requirements. While the Department has 
identified a war reserve requirement of 6.0 million cases of 
MRE's, current inventory is only 3.4 million cases. The 
conferees applaud the Defense Logistics Agency for identifying 
a higher MRE war reserve requirement to improve the 
Department's long-term MRE war reserve requirement to improve 
the Department's long-term sustainment posture. The conferees 
direct the Secretary of Defense to fund that increase 
requirement in the Department's fiscal year 2005 budget 
submission, with the goal of a full war reserve inventory of 
MREs by fiscal year 2006.

                     National Defense Sealift Fund

      The conferees agree to provide $1,066,462,000 for the 
National Defense Sealift Fund, $3,700,000 above the budget 
request for the conversion of a former Naval vessel into a 
training ship for the Great Lakes Maritime Academy. The 
conferees further agree that within funds made available in the 
National Defense Sealift Fund, $6,500,000 is available only for 
the construction of additional sealift capacity.
      The conference agreement fully funds the construction of 
the T-AKE program as requested.

                      DHP Reprogramming Procedures

      The conferees remain concerned regarding the transfer of 
funds from DoD military medical treatment facilities (MTFs) to 
pay for contractor-provided medical care. To limit such 
transfers within the Defense Health Program operation and 
maintenance account, the conferees have included bill language 
designating Private Sector Care under the TRICARE program as a 
separate sub-appropriation within the Defense Health Program. 
Any transfer of funds into or out of the Private Sector Care 
sub-appropriation will require the Department of Defense to 
follow prior approval reprogramming procedures.

                 Myeloproliferative Disorders Research

      The conferees recommend $4,250,000 for research into the 
specific chronic myeloproliferative disorders of the 
polycythemia vera, idiopathic myelofibrosis, and essential 
thrombocytosis. These disorders of the bone marrow are 
malignant diseases that offer great research promise with 
respect to the behavior of human blood cells. The conferees 
direct that the Secretary of Defense, in conjunction with the 
service Surgeons General, select basic or translational medical 
research projects of clear scientific merit and of direct 
relevance to military health.

                 Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program

      The Senate recommended $50,000,000 for a Peer Reviewed 
Medical Research program. The conferees agree to provide 
$50,000,000 for this program, and recommend the following 
projects as candidates for study: amyotrophic lateral 
sclerosis; alcoholism research; anti-diarrhea supplement; 
blood-related cancer research; childhood asthma; chronic pain 
research; epilepsy research; geneware rapid vaccine 
development; interventional cardiovascular magnetic resonance 
imaging technologies; muscle function research; Malaria vaccine 
initiative [SBRI]; Muscular Dystrophy; osteoporosis and bone 
related disease research; Padget's disease; providence cancer 
research project; post traumatic stress disorders; social work 
research; interstitial cystitis; military medical informatics 
research; limb loss and paralysis research; and Reserve 
component medical training program.
      The conferees direct the Department to provide a report 
by March 1, 2004, on the status of this Peer Reviewed Medical 
Research Program.

               Cost Sharing for Medical Research Programs

      The conferees commend the Department for its management 
of the peer reviewed medical research and cancer research 
programs, but note with concern the challenge of funding 
increases to these programs within the resources available for 
military spending. Therefore, the conferees direct the 
Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs), in 
consultation with the service Surgeons General and the 
Institute of Medicine, to investigate alternative funding 
sources, including private sector and non-Federal 
contributions, that can best be used to leverage appropriated 
funds without biasing the peer review selection process. The 
Department should report their findings and recommendations 
when submitting their annual report on the status of the Peer 
Review Medical Research Program, due on March 1, 2004.

                   Chropractic Health Care Initiative

      The Congress appropriated $750,000 in the Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act 2003 (Public Law 107-248) under the 
heading ``Defense Health Program'' for operation and 
maintenance for the Chiropractic Initiative. The conferees 
agree and direct the Department to make available from any 
available balances, $750,000 to develop and carry out a joint 
chiropractic health care initiative with the Texas Chiropractic 
College.

                         Betances Health Center

      The Congress appropriated $500,000 in the Department of 
Defense Appropriations Act 2003 (Public Law 107-248) under the 
heading ``Defense Health Program'' for operation and 
maintenance for the Betances Health Center. The conferees agree 
and direct the Department to make available from any available 
balances $500,000 to the Betances Health Center to support the 
restoration of health care services.

               HealtheForces/Outcomes Management Program

      The conferees agree with the Senate position on the 
Walter Reed Army Medical Center's HealtheForces/Outcomes 
Management Program and note that a portion of the funds may be 
used for collaborative projects for chronic disease management 
in medically underserved, rural areas.

                        Disposable Toothbrushes

      The conferees encourage the Army to consider looking at 
the viability of adding disposable toothbrushes to sundry 
packs.
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                           Sierra Army Depot

      The conferees have provided funding for the Sierra Army 
Depot Cryofracture/Plasma Arc Demilitarization Program within 
Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Army as opposed to 
the funding provided in the House bill.

         Drug Interdiction and Counter-Drug Activities, Defense

      The conference agreement includes $835,616,000 for ``Drug 
Interdiction and Counter-drug Activities, Defense'' as opposed 
to $817,371,000 as proposed by the House and $832,371,000 as 
proposed by the Senate. Adjustments to the budget request are 
as follows:
<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>

                            Northern Command

      The Senate included report language expressing concern 
about plans to consolidate some existing functions and 
personnel currently residing with the regional Commands at the 
newly created Northern Command and adjusted the budget 
accordingly. The House shares these concerns. While the 
conferees agree that Northern Command has a tremendous 
responsibility for protecting the continental United States 
from many threats to include those associated with counter-
narcotics and fully support their requirements, they also fully 
support the missions and expertise that reside with the 
existing regional commands, most notably the United States 
Pacific and Southern Commands. The conferees direct that none 
of the resources or personnel to include those of the reserve 
components currently assigned to Pacific Command or Southern 
Command shall be diverted to Northern Command without 15 days 
prior notification of the congressional defense committees. The 
conferees have adjusted the budget to support their 
recommendation.

                    Office of the Inspector General

      The conferees agree to provide $162,449,000, as proposed 
by both the House and Senate, for the Office of the Inspector 
General.

                      TITLE VII--RELATED AGENCIES

   Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System Fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $226,400,000 for 
payment to the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and 
Disability System Fund, as proposed by both the House and the 
Senate.

               Intelligence Community Management Account

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

      The conference agreement appropriates $175,113,000 
instead of $170,640,000 as proposed by the House and 
$165,390,000 as proposed by the Senate.
      The conference agreement provides for a transfer of 
$44,300,000 to the Department of Justice for the National 
Intelligence Center to support the Department of Defense's 
counter-drug intelligence responsibilities, instead of 
$46,100,000 as proposed by the House and $34,100,000 as 
proposed by the Senate.

Payment to Kaho'olawe Island Conveyance, Remediation, and Environmental 
                            Restoration Fund

      The conference agreement provides $18,430,000 for the 
Kaho'olawe Island Conveyance, Remediation, and Environmental 
Restoration Fund as proposed by the Senate.

                 National Security Education Trust Fund

      The conference agreement appropriates $8,000,000 for the 
purposes of title VIII of Public Law 102-183, to be derived 
from the National Security Education Trust Fund, as proposed by 
both the House and the Senate.

                     TITLE VIII--GENERAL PROVISIONS

      The conference agreement incorporated general provisions 
of the House and Senate versions of the bill which were not 
amended. Those general provisions that were amended in 
conference follow:
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8008) 
which amends language recommended by the House and the Senate 
with respect to the programs granted multi-year procurement 
authority.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8014) 
which amends House language regarding converting functions of 
the Department of Defense to contractor performance, by adding 
cost differential criteria; crediting conversions toward 
outsourcing goals, and excluding depot contracts and depot 
maintenance contracts.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8018) 
which amends Senate language to require that the Department of 
Defense budget submission for fiscal year 2005 shall identify 
anticipated residual value settlements.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8049) 
which amends House and Senate language recommending 
rescissions. The rescissions agreed to are:

                             (RESCISSIONS)

Fiscal Year 2001:

      Wide: SOF Tactical Systems........................      25,000,000
    National Defense Sealift Fund: Unobligated Balance..     105,300,000

      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8082) 
which amends Senate language regarding the Under Secretary of 
Defense for Intelligence. The conference agreement requires a 
quarterly report from the Secretary of Defense, the contents of 
which are discussed in the classified annex accompanying the 
conference report.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8083) 
which amends Senate language providing that government travel 
card and purchase card refunds may be credited to operation and 
maintenance accounts for fiscal year 2005.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8091) 
which amends language recommended by the House and Senate to 
make funds available for transfer to other activities of the 
Federal Government, and provides funds for certain classified 
activities.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8093) 
which amends House language which provides $2,000,000 for 
construction and furnishing of additional Fisher Houses to meet 
the needs of military family members when confronted with the 
illness or hospitalization of an eligible military beneficiary. 
The Senate recedes. The conferees are aware that the 
nonappropriated fund instrumentalities (NAFI) which were 
established by law to help defray the operating costs of Fisher 
Houses have decreased in value due to poor financial market 
performance. The conferees are also aware that the costs to 
manage many Fisher Houses are much higher than planned due to 
an influx of patients at military treatment facilities as a 
result of casualties suffered during operations IRAQI FREEDOM 
and ENDURING FREEDOM. The conferees provide $1,800,000 in the 
Defense Health Program to help mitigate any deficit, which will 
occur in fiscal year 2004. The conferees direct the Secretary 
of Defense to analyze the financial condition of the Fisher 
House operating accounts and submit with the fiscal year 2005 
budget a plan to ensure their solvency without increasing the 
current service fee paid by military family members.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8094) 
which amends House language regarding funds reduced from 
certain operation and maintenance and research, development, 
test and evaluation accounts for savings or excessive growth in 
advisory assistance services, support services, analysis, 
engineering and technical support contracted by the military 
departments and defense agencies.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8095) 
which amends Senate language making $80,000,000 available for 
component coproduction for the Arrow Missile Defense Program.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8096) 
which amends Senate language to provide funds only for transfer 
to the Coast Guard for mission essential equipment for HC-130J 
aircraft.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8101) 
which amends House language which reduces $200,000,000 of 
operation and maintenance funds for cost growth information 
technology development.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8104) 
which amends House language on the amounts reduced from working 
capital fund excess cash balances.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8105) 
which amends House language regarding the amount reduced in 
``Operation and Maintenance, Navy'' for excess funded 
carryover.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8108) 
which amends Senate language to retain a total of 94 B-52 
aircraft by providing a total funding amount of $40,600,000.
      The conferees included a general provision (Section 8109) 
which amends Senate language that restores a fiscal year 2003 
provision which makes $8,000,000 available in ``Operation and 
Maintenance, Air Force'' for railroad tack realignment by 
adding a provision which makes $26,000,000 from funds available 
in ``Operation and Maintenance, Air Force'' for phased 
infrastructure repairs for Air Force managed ranges in Alaska.

personnel and families, in assisting civilian employees with 
relocation and outplacement and in performing environmental 
cleanup. The conferees strongly encourage the Department of the

        consulting services provided by contractors in that 
        process;
            (2) The process and standards for awarding limited 
        or sole-source contracts, including the criteria for 
        justifying the awarding of such contracts;
            (3) Any policies that the Secretary has implemented 
        or plans to implement to provide for independent 
        oversight of the performance by a contractor of 
        services in designing and awarding such contracts;
            (4) Any policies that the Secretary has implemented 
        or plans to implement to identify, assess, and prevent

            (6) The process and criteria used to determine the 
        percentage of profit allowed on cost-plus-a-fixed-fee 
        contracts for reconstruction or other services in Iraq; 
        and
            (7) A good faith estimate of the expected costs and 
        duration of all contracts for reconstruction or other 
        services in Iraq.

Discovery Center, Newport, Kentucky.
