                that is paid by the Department of Defense for 
                health benefits for civilian employees under

is not described under section 455(m)(A) of such Act, to 
encourage borrowers to enroll in a qualifying repayment plan:  
Provided further, That the Secretary shall also communicate to

455(m) of such Act and improve the filing of employment 
certification by providing improved outreach and information

prominent access to program requirements and benefits on each 
servicer's website, and creating an option for all borrowers to 
complete the entire payment certification process 
electronically and on a centralized website.
    Sec. 315. (a) For any local educational agency that for 
fiscal year 2018, had an enrollment of eligible Federally 
connected children that was at least 35 percent of the agency's 
total student enrollment and a per-pupil expenditure that was 
less than the average per-pupil expenditure of the State or of 
all the States, and was determined ineligible to receive a

for the following three years not less than 90 percent of the 
total amount the local educational agency received under 
section 7003(b)(2) for fiscal year 2017 if such local 
educational agency--

        7003(b)(2)(A) but did not receive a payment under 
        section 7003(b)(2)(B)(ii) (or any predecessor of such 
        provision) for each of fiscal years 2015 through 2017; 
        and

        described in section 7003(b)(2)(B)(i)(V) (or any 
        predecessor of such provision) for each such fiscal 
        year.
    (b) For fiscal year 2020 and succeeding fiscal years, if a 
local educational agency described in subsection (a) is 
eligible to receive a basic support payment pursuant to section 
7003(b)(2) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 
1965 (20 U.S.C. 7703(b)(2)), the payment received by the local 
educational agency shall be calculated under section 7003(b)(2) 
of such Act and not under subsection (a).

        the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, 
        shall define the term `cohorts of loans' for purposes 
        of section 502(f)(4) of the Railroad Revitalization and 
        Regulatory Reform Act of 1976 (45 U.S.C. 822(f)(4)) (as 
        in effect on the day before the amendments made by 
        section 11607 of Public Law 114-94 (129 Stat. 1698) 
        took effect): Provided further, That, when all 
        obligations attached to a cohort of loans have been 
        satisfied, the Secretary of Transportation shall return 
        to the original source, on a pro rata basis, the credit 
        risk premiums paid for the loans in the cohort, with 
        interest accrued thereon, that were not used to 
        mitigate losses, not later than 60 days after the date 
        of enactment of the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019 
        or, for a cohort of loans with obligations that have 
        not yet been satisfied, not later than 60 days after 
        the date on which all obligations attached to the 
        cohort have been satisfied:''; and

      The conference agreement does not contain any 
congressional earmarks, limited tax benefits, or limited tariff 
benefits as defined by clause 9 of rule XXI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives.

       DIVISION A--DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2019

      The conference agreement on the Department of Defense 
Appropriations Act, 2019, incorporates some of the provisions 
of both the House and Senate versions of the bill. The language 
and allocations set forth in House Report 115-769 and Senate 
Report 115-290 should be complied with unless specifically 
addressed in the accompanying bill and statement of the 
managers to the contrary.

              DEFINITION OF PROGRAM, PROJECT, AND ACTIVITY

      For the purposes of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985 (Public Law 99-177), as amended by 
the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Reaffirmation 
Act of 1987 (Public Law 100-119), and by the Budget Enforcement 
Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-508), the terms ``program, project, 
and activity'' for appropriations contained in this Act shall 
be defined as the most specific level of budget items 
identified in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 
2019, the related classified annexes and explanatory 
statements, 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: the military personnel and the operation and maintenance 
accounts, for which 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 the budget request for 
fiscal year 2020, the Secretary of Defense is directed to 
transmit to the congressional defense committees budget 
justification documents to be known as the ``M-1'' and the ``O-
1'' which shall identify, at the budget activity, activity 
group, and sub-activity 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 
2020.

                         REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE

      The Secretary of Defense is directed to continue to 
follow the reprogramming guidance for acquisition accounts as 
specified in the report accompanying the House version of the 
Department of Defense Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2008 
(House Report 110-279). The dollar threshold for reprogramming 
funds shall be $10,000,000 for military personnel; $15,000,000 
for operation and maintenance; $20,000,000 for procurement; and 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
      Also, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) is 
directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees annual DD Form 1416 reports for titles I and II and 
quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports for Service 
and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of this Act. 
Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with guidance 
specified in the explanatory statement accompanying the 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The Department 
shall continue to follow the limitation that prior approval 
reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar threshold 
or 20 percent of the procurement or research, development, test 
and evaluation line, whichever is less. These thresholds are 
cumulative from the base for reprogramming value as modified by 
any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined value of transfers 
into or out of a military personnel (M-1), an operation and 
maintenance (O-1), a procurement (P-1), or a research, 
development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds the 
identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense must submit a 
prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense 
committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior 
approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special 
interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

                           FUNDING INCREASES

      The funding increases outlined in the tables for each 
appropriation account shall be provided only for the specific 
purposes indicated in the tables.

                  CONGRESSIONAL SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

      Items for which additional funds have been provided or 
items for which funding is specifically reduced as shown in the 
project level tables or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only 
for'' or ``only to'' are congressional special interest items 
for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414). 
Each of these items must be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the 
stated amount, as specifically addressed in the explanatory 
statement.

                            CLASSIFIED ANNEX

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

                      OTHER TRANSACTION AUTHORITY

      The conferees support the use of Other Transaction 
Authority (OTA) pursuant to section 2371b of title 10, United 
States Code for prototyping projects to enhance the mission 
effectiveness of the Department of Defense. However, the 
conferees are concerned with the lack of transparency 
surrounding the employment of OTA, particularly for follow-on 
production. Therefore, the conferees direct the Secretary of 
Defense to provide quarterly reports to the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees not later than 30 days after the 
close of each fiscal quarter, detailing the Department's 
execution of funds for OTA prototype projects. Such reports 
shall be submitted beginning with the first quarter of fiscal 
year 2019 and shall include a classified annex, if necessary. 
The report shall list each active OTA agreement characterized 
by Service or agency, major command, contracting activity, 
appropriation, budget line item, minimum and maximum award 
value, vendor, obligations and expenditures to date, product 
service code, and period of performance. Other Transaction 
Authority agreements that include an option for follow-on 
production shall be clearly annotated in the report and include 
a description of the scope of the follow-on production, 
including estimated cost, period of performance, deliverables, 
delivery dates, and source of funding.
      Further, the conferees direct the Comptroller General to 
review the Department's use of OTA pursuant to section 2371b of 
title 10, United States Code to determine whether the 
Department's employment of this authority conforms to 
applicable statutes and Departmental guidelines, to include the 
identification of any potential conflicts with section 1301 of 
title 31, United States Code. As part of this review, the 
Comptroller General shall also report on the extent that OTAs 
have been utilized since fiscal year 2016 and quantify OTA 
prototype agreements, including those with options for follow-
on production, by Service or agency, appropriation, and other 
characteristics, as appropriate. The Comptroller General shall 
provide the congressional defense committees the assessment not 
later than 180 days after the enactment of this Act.

                  INDIRECT FIRE PROTECTION CAPABILITY

      In support of the Indirect Fire Protection Capability 
(IFPC) program of record, the Army's fiscal year 2019 budget 
includes procurement requests totaling $173,204,000 for AIM-9X 
interceptors, Multi-Mission Launcher (MML) components, and 
other ancillary costs. This request is in addition to 
$50,056,000 of fiscal year 2018 funding that remains 
unexecuted. The request also includes $208,740,000 for 
continued research, development, test and evaluation of the 
current IFPC program of record, while prior year funding also 
remains available due to the decision not to award the IFPC 
milestone B Engineering and Manufacturing Development contract.
      The conferees note that following the submission of the 
fiscal year 2019 budget request, the Army initiated reviews of 
the existing IFPC program of record and alternate courses of 
action (COA) prior to the milestone B decision. These alternate 
COA include the development and integration of an alternate 
interceptor to the previously proposed AIM-9X interceptor with 
modifications to the MML, as well as the analysis of at least 
two other distinct weapons systems. The conferees further note 
that section 112 of the John S. McCain National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 directs the Army to 
deploy two batteries of an interim, fixed site cruise missile 
defense capability by September 30, 2020, subject to the 
availability of appropriations.
      The conference agreement supports the Army's pursuit of 
this defensive capability; however, the conferees remain 
concerned that the current budget request does not support any 
change in acquisition strategy or procurement and integration 
of available interim defense capabilities and is unexecutable 
as requested. The conferees direct the Secretary of the Army to 
provide a report to the congressional defense committees not 
later than 30 days after the enactment of this Act that details 
the results of the Army's internal review, revised acquisition 
strategy, and resulting resourcing requirements. The report 
shall also include an analysis and recommendations on the 
multiple COA under review; the supporting cost estimates for 
each COA across the future years defense program (FYDP); a 
program schedule for the selected COA; an analysis and 
recommendations for interim capabilities and proposed 
acquisition schedule; the proposed execution of prior year 
available balances and current IFPC resources by appropriation, 
budget line, and project across the FYDP for both the program 
of record and interim capabilities; and a plan to resource any 
identified shortfalls for the selected program of record COA 
and interim capabilities that will be pursued through the 
reprogramming of available resources and other means, as 
necessary.

                            CLOUD COMPUTING

      The conferees believe cloud computing, if implemented 
properly, will have far reaching benefits for improving the 
efficiency of day-to-day operations of the Department of 
Defense, as well as enabling new military capabilities critical 
to maintaining a tactical advantage over adversaries. The 
conference agreement includes a general provision directing the 
Secretary of Defense to provide a comprehensive strategy for 
cloud computing and to propose a plan for a budget accounting 
system that provides greater transparency to evaluate the cost 
and progress of transitioning to a cloud computing environment. 
The conferees are not suggesting that the Department implement 
a separate, new financial management system for cloud 
computing, but urge the Secretary of Defense to adapt the 
current system to provide reliable and timely data on the 
budgets requested and funds expended to procure cloud computing 
services, and the budgets requested and funds expended to 
prepare and implement legacy systems for migration to the cloud 
environment.

                   ADVANCED BATTLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

      The conferees support the Air Force's new approach to 
battle management, the Advanced Battle Management System 
(ABMS), but are concerned with the near-term risks in 
cancelling the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System 
recapitalization program. The conferees direct the Secretary of 
the Air Force to submit a report to the congressional defense 
committees not later than 90 days after the enactment of this 
Act on a revised ABMS plan and execution strategy, updated 
costs and schedules of each activity within the ABMS plan, and 
a gap and threat assessment of both the ground moving target 
indicator and battle management command and control mission 
areas.
      This language replaces the language under the heading 
``Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System 
Recapitalization'' in House Report 115-769 and the language 
under the heading ``Advanced Battle Management System'' in 
Senate Report 115-290.

                           CIVILIAN PAY RAISE

      The conference agreement includes sufficient funding to 
provide for a 1.9 percent pay raise for civilian employees of 
the Department of Defense and other agencies funded by this 
Act, if authorized by another provision of law.

                 ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS RESTRUCTURING

      On July 30, 2018, the Secretary of Defense approved a 
Secretary of the Army memorandum identifying specific actions 
the Army will take in support of the Administration's proposed 
reorganization of the United States Army Corps of Engineers' 
(USACE) Civil Works Program. The reorganization includes taking 
the Civil Works program out of the Army Corps of Engineers with 
navigation going to the Department of Transportation for 
infrastructure grants and the remaining accounts to the 
Department of the Interior.
      The conferees are opposed to the reorganization as it 
could ultimately have detrimental readiness and operational 
impacts on Department of Defense functions and activities, to 
include USACE support to ongoing military operations, 
international partners, and support to United States military 
installations around the world.
      The conferees are extremely concerned that the Secretary 
of the Army failed to provide any notification or engage in any 
discussion with Members of Congress, the House and Senate 
Appropriations Committees, or their staff on an action of this 
magnitude, which crosses multiple jurisdictional lines and has 
far-reaching consequences. This type of proposal, as the 
Department is well aware, will require legislative language 
which has not been proposed or requested to date. Therefore, no 
funds provided in this Act or any previous Act shall be used by 
the Department or the Secretary to plan, prepare, or implement 
this proposal.

                      TITLE I--MILITARY PERSONNEL

      The agreement provides $138,537,041,000 in Title I, 
Military Personnel, as follows:

                      Military Personnel Overview

      The conference agreement provides the resources required 
for an additional 15,600 active forces and 800 selected reserve 
forces above fiscal year 2018 levels, as requested and 
authorized by current law, in order to meet operational needs 
for fiscal year 2019. The conference agreement also provides 
the funding necessary to support a 2.6 percent pay raise for 
all military personnel, as authorized, effective January 1, 
2019.

         REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL ACCOUNTS

      The Secretary of Defense is directed to submit the Base 
for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414) for each of the fiscal year 
2019 appropriations accounts not later than 60 days after the 
enactment of this Act. The Secretary of Defense is prohibited 
from executing any reprogramming or transfer of funds for any 
purpose other than originally appropriated until the 
aforementioned report is submitted to the House and Senate 
Defense Appropriations Subcommittees.
      The Secretary of Defense is directed to use the normal 
prior approval reprogramming procedures to transfer funds in 
the Services' military personnel accounts between budget 
activities in excess of $10,000,000.

               MILITARY PERSONNEL SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

      Items for which additional funds have been provided or 
have been specifically reduced as shown in the project level 
tables or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or ``only 
to'' in the explanatory statement are congressional special 
interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming 
(DD Form 1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD 
Form 1414 at the stated amount as specifically addressed in the 
explanatory statement. Below Threshold Reprogrammings may not 
be used to either restore or reduce funding from congressional 
special interest items as identified on the DD Form 1414.

                     RESERVE OFFICER TRAINING CORPS

      The conferees support Reserve Officer Training Corps 
(ROTC) programs at universities and colleges. The ROTC program 
provides necessary tools for young men and women to serve in 
the military. The House included two provisions which would ban 
the termination or closure of Senior ROTC or ROTC programs at 
Historically Black Colleges, Hispanic or Tribal Universities/
Colleges. The Department of Defense has advised the conferees 
that they have not initiated any efforts for the past several 
years to terminate these programs and/or units. The conferees 
urge the Secretary of Defense to continue to foster these 
programs, especially at Historically Black Colleges, Hispanic 
or Tribal Universities/Colleges, to ensure the best and 
brightest remain interested in military service.

                       BLENDED RETIREMENT SYSTEM

      Pursuant to sections 631 through 635 of the National 
Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016, the Department 
of Defense began modernizing the retirement system for members 
of the uniformed services by implementing a Blended Retirement 
System (BRS) that incorporates Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) 
contributions, Continuation Pays (CP), and a reduced-rate 
version of the traditional defined-benefit pension. 
Servicemembers who enter military service on or after January 
1, 2018 are covered automatically by BRS. Those who began 
serving prior to December 31, 2017 are grandfathered under the 
legacy retirement system, with the ability to opt-in to the BRS 
from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018, if the member 
has less than 12 years of service in active duty or has 
accumulated less than 4,320 points for reserve members. For 
servicemembers separating from the military with fewer than 20 
years, the new system provides for retirement benefits outside 
of the standing defined-benefit pension, enabling a larger 
population of servicemembers to obtain retirement benefits.
      The fiscal year 2018 budget submission was the 
Department's first opportunity to request appropriations for 
TSP and CP requirements. Initial estimates were consistent 
across the military Services based on budgeting assumptions 
informed by valuations of the military retirement system via 
the Department of Defense Office of the Actuary. Following the 
markup of the Department of Defense Appropriations Acts by the 
House and Senate Appropriations Committees, the Department 
submitted an omnibus reprogramming request identifying 
$1,679,947,000 in base military personnel funding available for 
realignment to higher priorities, of which the Department 
identified $442,475,000 as excess to need due to overestimation 
of BRS. In addition, another $77,000,000 was identified as BRS 
resources available for a future reprogramming action.
      The conferees understand that this new approach to 
military retirement will take the Department time to educate 
and enroll participants, gather data, formulate revised 
assumptions, and more accurately inform budget projections. 
However, given that the fiscal year 2019 budget request was 
formulated by applying similar BRS assumptions as those used in 
fiscal year 2018, the Department has revised its fiscal year 
2019 BRS projection and identified an estimated $732,000,000 
asset based on current actuals experienced in the year of 
execution. As such, the associated reductions have been 
distributed throughout the military personnel appropriation 
accounts and redistributed to title II in a general provision 
to mitigate higher than anticipated fuel costs. The conferees 
expect budgeting for the BRS will become more accurate over 
time.

following budget sub-activities:
Operation and Maintenance, Army:
      Recruiting and advertising
Operation and Maintenance, Army National Guard:
      Other personnel support/recruiting and advertising

            OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

      Items for which additional funds have been provided or 
have been specifically reduced as shown in the project level 
tables or in paragraphs using the phrase ``only for'' or ``only 
to'' in the explanatory statement are congressional special 
interest items for the purpose of the Base for Reprogramming 
(DD Form 1414). Each of these items must be carried on the DD 
Form 1414 at the stated amount as specifically addressed in the 
explanatory statement. Below Threshold Reprogrammings may not 
be used to either restore or reduce funding from congressional 
special interest items as identified on the DD Form 1414.

         REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND

      The Secretary of Defense is directed to submit a baseline 
report that shows the Special Operations Command's operation 
and maintenance funding by sub-activity group for the fiscal 
year 2019 appropriation not later than 60 days after the 
enactment of this Act. The Secretary of Defense is further 
directed to submit quarterly execution reports to the 
congressional defense committees not later than 45 days after 
the end of each fiscal quarter that addresses the rationale for 
the realignment of any funds within and between budget sub-
activities and the movement of any base funds used to support 
overseas contingency operations. Finally, the Secretary of 
Defense is directed to notify the congressional defense 
committees 30 days prior to the realignment of funds in excess 
of $15,000,000 between sub-activity groups.

       ADVERTISING SPENDING TO SMALL AND DISADVANTAGED BUSINESSES

      The conferees direct the Secretary of Defense to submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees not later than 
90 days after the enactment of this Act which estimates the 
portion of the Department of Defense advertising budget that is 
spent on advertising and public relations contracts with 
socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses and 
women, low-income veteran, and minority entrepreneurs and 
business owners at the prime and subcontracting levels.

                   ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION FUNDING

      The conference agreement provides the maximum executable 
level of funding for the Services to address costs associated 
with remediating contamination caused by perfluorinated 
chemicals, as well as additional funding to address other high-
priority environmental restoration projects across the 
Department.

                  LEAD IN MILITARY PRIVATIZED HOUSING

      Section 8132 of the Senate-passed Defense Appropriations 
bill directs the Comptroller General, in consultation with the 
Secretary of Defense and the Service Secretaries, to provide a 
report on the monitoring compliance and remediation of lead in 
military housing. The conferees are concerned that 
servicemembers and their families residing in on-post military 
housing may have been exposed to toxic levels of lead based 
paint. The conferees understand that military installations 
around the country possess housing units containing lead based 
paint levels exceeding the federal threshold for acceptable 
levels, which could have negative health implications for 
servicemembers and their families. The conferees direct the 
Comptroller General to conduct an investigation and submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees on toxic lead 
levels at military housing on all installations not later than 
120 days after the enactment of this Act.

                    Operation and Maintenance, Army

      The agreement provides $40,145,482,000 for Operation and 
Maintenance, Army, as follows:

      The conferees encourage the Secretary of the Army to 
provide sufficient resources at Morale, Welfare, and Recreation 
facilities that have been closed as a result of flooding, an 
earthquake, a wildfire, or a volcanic event in 2018. This 
includes facilities that have furloughed or put employees on 
administrative leave as well as those that have used revenue or 
operating reserves to pay operation and maintenance expenses.

      The conferees direct the Comptroller General to submit a 
report to the congressional defense committees not later than 
January 31, 2019 on E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar 
System (JSTARS) maintenance. The report shall compare the cost 
expenditures of organic industrial depot maintenance of the E-
8C JSTARS fleet versus contracted or non-organic maintenance 
and the cost variance and cost savings of different programmed 
depot maintenance cycles or procedures for the E-8C fleet, 
including comparisons to such other platforms as the 
Comptroller General considers appropriate.

                           REPUBLIC OF PALAU

      The conference agreement provides $9,700,000 to reimburse 
the Republic of Palau for land acquisition costs to enable the 
installation of critical defense assets. The conferees note 
that this one-time investment will provide a measurable 
advantage in United States strategic posture.

                Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide

      The agreement provides $35,613,354,000 for Operation and 
Maintenance, Defense-Wide, as follows:
 
 
 
 [GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

                      SECURITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS

      The conferees recognize and appreciate the efforts made 
in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 
and the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2019 to reform several programs that provide 
security assistance to international partners. Changes have 
touched on several Department of Defense programs, including 
the Coalition Support Fund, border security programs, and 
building partner capacity/security cooperation programs.
      While largely supportive of these efforts, the conferees 
are concerned that confusion exists, within the Department of 
Defense and among recipient countries, about the remaining 
disparate and still-changing authorities. The conferees are 
also concerned with the lack of stability, transparency, and 
fungibility of funds appropriated for security assistance 
activities and believe that changes may be needed in various 
appropriations to ensure that appropriate levels of funding are 
provided for each newly authorized or modified program.
      Therefore, the conferees direct the Secretary of Defense 
to conduct a review of security assistance programs, including, 
but not limited to, security cooperation programs authorized in 
Section 333 of the National Defense Authorization Act for 
Fiscal Year 2017, border security assistance programs 
authorized by Section 1226 of the National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 as modified, and the 
Coalition Support Fund authorized by Section 1223 of the 
National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 as 
modified. The review should include a survey of Department of 
Defense security assistance requirements of each combatant 
command and a study of whether existing authorities are 
sufficient to meet the security assistance needs of the 
Department of Defense, including whether funding limitations 
inhibit security assistance requirements.
      The conferees direct that the results of the review be 
submitted to Congress with the fiscal year 2020 budget request 
submission, and include proposals for any needed modifications 
to security assistance authorities and appropriations funding 
levels or language.
      The conferees further direct the Director of the Defense 
Security Cooperation Agency, in conjunction with the geographic 
combatant commanders, to provide a spend plan for fiscal year 
2019, by combatant command, for security assistance funding to 
the congressional defense committees not later than 30 days 
after the enactment of this Act. The spend plan should be 
provided in a form that compares the plans for both the base 
and overseas contingency operations requests and provides an 
annual comparison for the preceding five years. A similar plan 
shall be provided outlining fiscal year 2020 requirements 
concurrent with the submission of the fiscal year 2020 budget 
request.

                       BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS

      The Administration has announced plans to wholly transfer 
the National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB) to the 
Department of Defense. The conferees expect the Department of 
Defense will use the existing NBIB skilled workforce as part of 
the plan to maintain continuity and to support a successful 
transition of services. The conferees recognize the importance 
of this workforce in reducing the backlog of investigations and 
in establishing new processes for streamlining the current 
system.

                        DEFENSE SECURITY SERVICE

      The Defense Security Service (DSS) is preparing to accept 
responsibility for all civilian and defense agency background 
investigations. The conferees note with concern that DSS 
provided multiple and amended budget documents during the 
fiscal year 2019 budget cycle, which indicate changing plans 
and corresponding budget requirements. The conferees expect 
that DSS will improve its resource planning to ensure future 
budget requests support a consistent strategy. The conferees 
direct the Director of DSS to provide quarterly execution 
briefings to the congressional defense committees on activities 
related to background investigations during fiscal year 2019.

        COMMEMORATING THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF WORLD WAR II

      The United States will celebrate the occasion of the 
seventy-fifth anniversary of the end of World War II in 2020. 
In order to honor the nation's veterans, educate the public, 
and recognize the contributions of the home front and allies 
during the war, the conferees urge the Secretary of Defense to 
evaluate ways in which the Department can support the 
commemoration, to include providing resources for related 
activities.

                     CYBERSPACE SOLARIUM COMMISSION

      Section 1652 of the John S. McCain National Defense Act 
for Fiscal Year 2019 establishes the Cyberspace Solarium 
Commission to develop a consensus on a strategic approach to 
defending the United States in cyberspace against cyber attacks 
of significant consequences. The conferees encourage the 
Secretary of Defense to provide the resources necessary to 
support this effort.

 DEFENSE ACQUISITION WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT FUND REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

      The conferees reaffirm the reporting requirements 
pertaining to the Department of Defense Acquisition Workforce 
Development Fund, as specified in Senate Report 115-290 and 
further direct the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition and 
Sustainment) to submit, with the fiscal year 2020 budget 
request, any unfunded requirements for the Department of 
Defense acquisition workforce, if applicable.

                         TITLE III--PROCUREMENT

      The agreement provides $135,362,619,000 in Title III, 
Procurement, as follows:

 [GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

            REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR ACQUISITION ACCOUNTS

      The Secretary of Defense is directed to continue to 
follow the reprogramming guidance as specified in the report 
accompanying the House version of the Department of Defense 
Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2008 (House Report 110-
279). Specifically, the dollar threshold for reprogramming 
funds shall remain at $20,000,000 for procurement and 
$10,000,000 for research, development, test and evaluation.
      Also, the Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) is 
directed to continue to provide the congressional defense 
committees quarterly, spreadsheet-based DD Form 1416 reports 
for Service and defense-wide accounts in titles III and IV of 
this Act. Reports for titles III and IV shall comply with the 
guidance specified in the explanatory statement accompanying 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2006. The 
Department shall continue to follow the limitation that prior 
approval reprogrammings are set at either the specified dollar 
threshold or 20 percent of the procurement or research, 
development, test and evaluation line, whichever is less. These 
thresholds are cumulative from the base for reprogramming value 
as modified by any adjustments. Therefore, if the combined 
value of transfers into or out of a procurement (P-1) or 
research, development, test and evaluation (R-1) line exceeds 
the identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense must submit 
a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense 
committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior 
approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special 
interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

                           FUNDING INCREASES

      The funding increases outlined in these tables shall be 
provided only for the specific purposes indicated in the 
tables.

                   PROCUREMENT SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

      Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the 
phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' in the explanatory statement 
are congressional special interest items for the purpose of the 
Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414). Each of these items must 
be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the stated amount as 
specifically addressed in the explanatory statement.

                       Aircraft Procurement, Army

 [GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

                         STRYKER DOUBLE-V HULL

      Following the submission of the fiscal year 2019 budget 
request, the Chief of Staff of the Army approved an Army 
Requirements Oversight Counsel (AROC) decision to upgrade and 
pure fleet all Flat-Bottom Hull (FBH) Stryker combat vehicles 
to the Double V-Hull A1 variant (DVHA1) in an effort to improve 
troop survivability and mobility. The Army's fiscal year 2019 
budget request includes $21,900,000 to upgrade three FBH 
Stryker vehicles to DVHA1 variants. Subsequent to the AROC 
decision, the Army requested a funding transfer of $149,390,000 
to fund additional conversions. With the transfer, the Army can 
resource 53 DVHA1 conversions totaling $171,290,000. The 
conferees have also included a congressional adjustment of 
$94,000,000 for 29 additional conversions.
      The conferees note that there is a fiscal year 2018 
reprogramming request to repurpose $285,000,000 of 
congressionally directed funding for 91 DVHA1 conversions. If 
the reprogramming action is approved by the congressional 
defense committees, the Army will have sufficient resources to 
fund conversions for half the vehicles in a Stryker Brigade 
Combat Team (SBCT), which is the Army's optimal rate of 
modernization.
      The conferees support the net-zero fiscal year 2019 
transfer request, reprogramming action, and additional funding 
for DVHA1 conversions. However, the conferees are concerned 
that the Army decision on Stryker modifications are not being 
synchronized with the budget cycle, are currently under-
resourced, and have been subject to sudden change. The 
conferees direct the Secretary of the Army to submit a report 
outlining the revised acquisition strategy for Stryker 
vehicles, to include a resourcing strategy for funding Stryker 
DVHA1 conversion at a rate of one-half of a SBCT per year, an 
explanation of Stryker lethality requirements, an acquisition 
and resourcing strategy for fielding required lethality 
modifications, and an explanation and cost estimate for any 
validated requirements for Stryker modifications. This report 
shall be submitted to the congressional defense committees not 
later than 90 days after the enactment of this Act.
      This language replaces the language under the heading 
``Stryker'' in House Report 115-769 and under the heading 
``Army Stryker Double-V Hull A1'' in Senate Report 115-290.

                    Procurement of Ammunition, Army

Procurement, Navy, as follows:
 
 [GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

       TOMAHAWK PRODUCTION AND NEXT GENERATION LAND ATTACK WEAPON

      The conferees are concerned by the Navy's management of 
the Tomahawk missile program. In the previous two fiscal years, 
the Congress has added funding above the budget requests for 
the Tomahawk program due to the fact that the Navy has 
requested fewer missiles than necessary to maintain a minimum 
sustainment rate of production while missiles have continued to 
be expended in the Central Command area of operations. The 
Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2018, provided 
$102,000,000 above the request to procure additional munitions 
pursuant to the Navy's fiscal year 2018 enhancement request 
following enactment of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018. 
However, despite the request by the Navy and the direction by 
the Congress to procure additional munitions, the Navy has 
proposed to repurpose the congressionally provided funding for 
various activities, negating congressional intent. Therefore, 
the agreement includes a rescission of $115,657,000 of fiscal 
year 2018 funds from the Tomahawk program.
      The fiscal year 2019 budget request for Tomahawk does not 
include funding for new production of all up rounds, reflecting 
the Navy's strategy to transition from new production to 
recertification and modernization activities. The conferees 
direct the Secretary of the Navy to conduct a full review of 
the Tomahawk program including the current inventory 
requirement and stockpiled levels of munitions; an analysis of 
the viability of new production in fiscal year 2020; an 
analysis of the capacity for concurrent new production and 
recertification activities within existing facilities; revised 
cost and schedule projections for modification and 
recertification activities, to include alternatives with and 
without concurrent new production; a detailed review of the 
execution of the fiscal year 2017 and 2018 new production 
congressional adds; an analysis of surface and sub-surface 
launched land attack weapons inventory and requirements 
projections through the Next Generation Land Attack Weapon 
initial operational capability date, to include other weapons 
systems that may provide an interim capability. The Secretary 
of the Navy shall provide a report detailing the results of the 
review to the congressional defense committees not later than 
90 days after the enactment of this Act.
      Additionally, the reporting requirements related to the 
Long Range Anti-Ship Missile included under the heading ``Next 
Generation Land Attack Weapon (NGLAW) and Interim 
Capabilities'' in Senate Report 115-290 are still valid.
      This language replaces the language under the heading 
``Tomahawk Production'' in House Report 115-769 and under the 
heading ``Next Generation Land Attack Weapon (NGLAW) and 
Interim Capabilities'' in Senate Report 115-290.

            Procurement of Ammunition, Navy and Marine Corps

 [GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

                FORD CLASS AIRCRAFT CARRIER PROCUREMENT

      The conferees include a proviso consistent with section 
121 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2019, which allows the Secretary of the Navy to 
potentially use fiscal year 2019 funds to enter into a contract 
for an aircraft carrier designated CVN-81 if certain 
requirements are met by the Secretary of Defense.
      However, the conferees note that the congressional 
defense committees have not received information justifying the 
validity of a proposed ``two carrier block buy,'' including an 
Independent Cost Estimate, an analysis of the impact on other 
Navy shipbuilding programs, an updated future years defense 
program, or an extended planning range budget.
      This language replaces the language under the heading 
``CVN 80'' in Senate Report 115-290.

                        Other Procurement, Navy

      The agreement provides $9,097,138,000 for Other

                                 C-135B

      The conference agreement provides $146,374,000 for C-
135B, including $125,000,000 for the procurement of the first 
of two aircraft and $21,374,000 for the integration of mission 
equipment, which is provided under Research, Development, Test 
and Evaluation, Air Force. The conferees understand that the 
Air Force intends to procure the C-135B through a full and open 
competition. The conferees direct the Secretary of the Air 
Force to submit, not fewer than 30 days prior to the obligation 
of these funds, a report to the congressional defense 
committees that details the finalized acquisition strategy, an 
updated schedule and cost estimate pursuant to that strategy, 
the approved requirements, an estimated timeline for the 
certification of the new aircraft under the Open Skies Treaty, 
and a plan for the transition of the mission to the new 
aircraft and the disposition of the current OC-135 aircraft and 
its mission equipment. This language replaces the language 
under the heading ``C-135B'' in House Report 115-769 and under 
the heading ``C-135B Aircraft'' in Senate Report 115-290.

                BATTLEFIELD AIRBORNE COMMUNICATION NODE

      The conference agreement provides $100,000,000 for the 
Battlefield Airborne Communication Node (BACN) mission under 
RQ-4 modifications. The conferees direct the Secretary of the 
Air Force to provide a report to the congressional defense 
committees not later than 90 days after the enactment of this 
Act on the updated BACN requirement and an execution plan for 
the additional funds provided in this Act. This language 
replaces the language under the same heading in House Report 
115-769.

                     WIDEBAND GAPFILLER SATELLITES

      The Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2018 
included $600,000,000 above the budget request for two 
additional Wideband Gapfiller Satellites (WGS). The conferees 
direct the Secretary of the Air Force to procure two WGS 
satellites and provide a funding plan for launch and operation 
and maintenance activities to the congressional defense 
committees not later than 90 days after the enactment of this 
Act.

                  Procurement of Ammunition, Air Force

the identified threshold, the Secretary of Defense must submit 
a prior approval reprogramming to the congressional defense 
committees. In addition, guidelines on the application of prior 
approval reprogramming procedures for congressional special 
interest items are established elsewhere in this statement.

                           FUNDING INCREASES

      The funding increases outlined in these tables shall be 
provided only for the specific purposes indicated in the 
tables.

   RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, TEST AND EVALUATION SPECIAL INTEREST ITEMS

      Items for which additional funds have been provided as 
shown in the project level tables or in paragraphs using the 
phrase ``only for'' or ``only to'' in the explanatory statement 
are congressional special interest items for the purpose of the 
Base for Reprogramming (DD Form 1414). Each of these items must 
be carried on the DD Form 1414 at the stated amount as 
specifically addressed in the explanatory statement.

                        BLAST EXPOSURE RESEARCH

      The conferees understand that further research is 
necessary regarding blast exposure on the cellular level of the 
brain in order to develop blast protection requirements for 
helmets and other personal protective equipment. The conferees 
encourage the Secretary of Defense to increase efforts to 
develop a predictive traumatic brain injury model for blast. 
Such research may help reveal the cellular response to blast 
impulses and the interaction of the human brain and protective 
equipment related to blast exposure.

        DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE TEST AND EVALUATION INFRASTRUCTURE

      The 2018 National Defense Strategy addresses the 
increasingly complex global threat environment driven in part 
by rapid technological advancements. The fiscal year 2019 
budget request proposes investments in several programs that 
support a more capable and lethal force to prepare for this 
threat environment, including directed energy, hypersonics, 
advanced computing, big data analytics, artificial 
intelligence, autonomy, and robotics programs.
      The conferees believe that concurrent with investments in 
leap-ahead technological advancements, an investment in the 
Department of Defense test and evaluation infrastructure is 
required to increase testing range space and availability and 
to ensure continued independent and objective assessments of 
weapon system capabilities. Therefore, after consultation with 
the Under Secretary of Defense (Research and Engineering) and 
the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation, the conferees 
recommend increases for the Air Force, and Office of the 
Director, Operational Test and Evaluation to modernize the 
Department of Defense test and evaluation infrastructure in 
areas such as hypersonics, directed energy, augmented 
intelligence, machine learning, robotics, and cyberspace.
      The conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense 
(Research and Engineering), in conjunction with the Director, 
Operational Test and Evaluation, and the Secretaries of the 
Army, Navy, and Air Force, to conduct an in-depth assessment of 
the Department of Defense test and evaluation infrastructure 
and to identify improvements required to address future 
warfighting capabilities. The assessment shall be provided to 
the congressional defense committees not later than with the 
submission of the fiscal year 2020 budget request and shall 
include proposed coordinated investments by warfighting area in 
priority order and with associated cost estimates.

           F-35 JOINT STRIKE FIGHTER DEVELOPMENTAL TEST FLEET

      The conferees agree to modify a provision proposed by the 
House allowing the Secretary of Defense to use funds 
appropriated in this Act for F-35 procurement and research, 
development, test and evaluation to modify up to six aircraft, 
including two aircraft of each variant, to a test 
configuration. The conferees understand that the cost of 
modifying each aircraft is approximately $5,000,000. The 
conferees direct the Secretary of Defense, with the concurrence 
of the Secretary of the Air Force and the Secretary of the 
Navy, to notify the congressional defense committees not fewer 
than 30 days prior to obligating and expending funds for this 
purpose. The notification shall contain the costs of modifying 
the aircraft, the sources of funding by account and the reasons 
for their availability, and a statement that the use of such 
funds will not adversely affect the F-35 operational fleet. The 
conferees expect that any such use of funds will not unduly 
hinder or harm other critical aspects of the Joint Strike 
Fighter program. Finally, the conferees direct that normal 
reprogramming procedures be followed as necessary to execute 
funding for this purpose.

                          ENERGETICS RESEARCH

      The conferees direct the Under Secretary of Defense 
(Research and Engineering) to submit a report to the 
congressional defense committees not later than 120 days after 
the enactment of this Act on current investments of the 
Department of Defense in energetics research. The report shall 
include a comparison of investments in energetics among the 
Services as well as a strategic roadmap for future energetics 
research.

                   HYPERSONICS RESEARCH PARTNERSHIPS

      The conferees support hypersonics partnerships between 
the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the military 
Services and recommend fully funding these partnerships. The 
conferees understand that the development of hypersonic weapons 
will require a long-term vision, beyond the Services' current 
mission needs and capabilities. Therefore, the conferees 
encourage the Under Secretary of Defense (Research and 
Engineering) to consider establishing a partnership with one or 
more universities focused on hypersonics research and education 
with the mission of developing next-generation hypersonics 
capabilities and building a highly-skilled, technically-trained 
workforce.

            Research, Development, Test and Evaluation, Army

                        ACCELERATED ACQUISITIONS

      The fiscal year 2019 budget request includes 
$1,402,333,000, an increase of 150 percent over amounts enacted 
in fiscal year 2018, for programs designated as accelerated 
acquisitions in accordance with Chief of Naval Operations and 
Secretary of the Navy Instructions 5000.53 and 5000.42, 
respectively. The conferees support efforts to rapidly deliver 
capability to the warfighter in a responsible manner and 
recommend $1,072,585,000 for these programs in fiscal year 
2019.
      The conferees are concerned by repeated instances in 
which the designation as an accelerated acquisition program has 
led to imprudent program management decisions affecting 
contracting actions and funding execution.
      Therefore, the conferees direct the Assistant Secretary 
of the Navy (Research, Development and Acquisition) and the 
Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Financial Management and 
Comptroller) to submit a report to the congressional defense 
committees, not later than 30 days after the enactment of this 
Act, on acquisition strategy management and fiscal controls in 
place to ensure the appropriate management of resources for 
Navy accelerated acquisition programs.
      The conferees direct the Assistant Secretary of the Navy 
(Research, Development and Acquisition) to provide the 
congressional defense committees, with the submission of the 
fiscal year 2020 budget request, the acquisition strategy for 
each designated accelerated acquisition program. The conferees 
further direct the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Financial 
Management and Comptroller) to certify that the fiscal year 
2020 budget request fully funds such acquisition strategies, to 
include the associated test requirements identified in the 
detailed test approach developed for each program, as agreed to 
by the Chief of Naval Operations, the Assistant Secretary of 
the Navy (Research, Development and Acquisition), and the 
Director, Operational Test and Evaluation per previous 
congressional direction. The conferees reiterate previous 
congressional direction with respect to the role of the 
Director, Operational Test and Evaluation under accelerated 
acquisition and rapid prototyping, to include early insight 
into service acquisition intentions.
      Finally, the conferees direct the Assistant Secretary of 
the Navy (Research, Development and Acquisition) to identify to 
the congressional defense committees with the fiscal year 2020 
budget submission, any additional training requirements levied 
on the acquisition workforce associated with the execution of 
accelerated acquisition programs.

                      TEST AND EVALUATION SUPPORT

      The conference agreement provides funding as requested 
within the Major Test and Evaluation Investment program element 
for the planning and design of three military construction 
projects under the Defense Laboratory Modernization Pilot 
Program authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act 
for Fiscal Year 2016. These specific projects are authorized by 
the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, 
but the conferees understand that funding for construction will 
be requested in fiscal year 2020. This language replaces the 
language under the heading ``Test and Evaluation Support'' in 
House Report 115-769.

                       SPACE SOLAR POWER PROGRAM

      The conferees understand that the Space Solar Power 
Program is a priority for the Air Force but have concerns that 
the submitted budget justification materials do not include 
sufficient requirements, scheduling, or cost detail to 
adequately judge the merits of rapid acquisition or the ability 
of the Space Rapid Capabilities Office to achieve it. 
Consequently, the conference agreement reduces funding for the 
program's air demonstration by $105,000,000 and designates the 
program as a new start and congressional special interest item. 
The conferees direct the Secretary of the Air Force to submit 
detailed funding plans for the Space Solar Power Program with 
the fiscal year 2020 budget request submission.

 [GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

                         Defense Health Program

      The agreement provides $34,007,519,000 for the Defense 
Health Program, as follows:

 [GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT]

         REPROGRAMMING GUIDANCE FOR THE DEFENSE HEALTH PROGRAM

      The conferees remain concerned about the transfer of 
funds from the In-House Care budget sub-activity group to pay 
for contractor-provided medical care and the reprogramming of 
funds from the Private Sector Care budget sub-activity group to 
Department priorities outside of the Defense Health Program. To 
limit such transactions and improve oversight within the 
Defense Health Program operation and maintenance account, the 
conferees direct that the In-House Care and Private Sector Care 
budget sub-activities remain designated as congressional 
special interest items. Any transfer of funds into or out of 
these sub-activities requires the Secretary of Defense to 
follow prior approval reprogramming procedures. This should not 
be interpreted as limiting the amount of funds that may be 
transferred to the In-House Care budget sub-activity from other 
budget sub-activities within the Defense Health Program.
      Additionally, the conferees direct the Assistant 
Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) to provide quarterly 
reports to the congressional defense committees on budget 
execution data for all of the Defense Health Program budget 
activities and to adequately reflect changes to the budget 
activities requested by the Services in future budget 
submissions.

                               CARRYOVER

      The conferees recommend one percent carryover authority 
for the operation and maintenance account of the Defense Health 
Program. The conferees direct the Assistant Secretary of 
Defense (Health Affairs) to submit a detailed spending plan for 
any fiscal year 2018 designated carryover funds to the 
congressional defense committees not less than 30 days prior to 
executing the carryover funds.

                       ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS

      The conferees direct the Program Executive Officer (PEO) 
for Defense Healthcare Management Systems (DHMS), in 
conjunction with the Director of the Interagency Program Office 
(IPO), to provide quarterly reports to the congressional 
defense committees on the cost and schedule of the electronic 
health record program, to include milestones, knowledge points, 
and acquisition timelines, as well as quarterly obligation 
reports. These reports should also include any changes to the 
deployment timeline, including benchmarks, for full operating 
capability; any refinements to the cost estimate for full 
operating capability and the total lifecycle cost of the 
project; and the progress toward developing, implementing, and 
fielding the interoperable electronic health record throughout 
the medical facilities of the Department of Defense and the

Iraq. A lasting defeat of ISIS is critical to maintaining a 
stable and tolerant Iraq in which all faiths, sects, and 
ethnicities are afforded equal protection and full integration 
into the government and society of Iraq.
      In support of counter-ISIS operations and in conjunction 
with the central government of Iraq, the United States should 
provide the Ministry of Peshmerga forces of the Kurdistan 
Region of Iraq $290,000,000 in operational sustainment, so that 
the Peshmerga forces can more effectively partner with the 
Iraqi Security Forces, the United States, and other 
international coalition members to consolidate gains, hold 
territory, and protect infrastructure from ISIS and its 
affiliates in an effort to deal a lasting defeat to ISIS and 
prevent its reemergence in Iraq.

    AFGHANISTAN SECURITY FORCES FUND BUDGET SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

      The conferees appreciate the efforts of the Department of 
Defense to comply with prior year direction to provide detailed 
execution information concurrent with the budget request and 
Financial Activity Plan (FAP) submissions for the Afghanistan 
Security Forces Fund (ASFF) appropriation. However, the 
Department remains unable to provide an accurate accounting of 
current and prior year spending at the budget justification 
request line level, which challenges effective congressional 
budget analysis and oversight. The conferees are also concerned 
that the budget flexibility allowed with the ASFF appropriation 
has led to unclear funding requirements and a lack of budget 
discipline and risks wasteful spending.
      Therefore, the conferees continue to direct that the 
Secretary of Defense shall provide budget justification 
materials that include the budget request amount, the prior 
year appropriated amount, and the actual obligation amount by 
line item for the prior two years. In addition, concurrent with 
the submission of each FAP, the Secretary of Defense shall 
provide the congressional defense committees with line item 
detail of planned funding movements within each ASFF sub-
activity group using line item titles from the appropriate 
year's budget justification submission. Any line item that did 
not appear in the budget justification submission shall be 
delineated as a new line item in the line item detail 
accompanying the FAP.
      The conferees agree to forgo the more stringent 
reprogramming requirements outlined in Senate Report 115-290 in 
order to provide the Department more time to improve the ASFF 
budget submission. However, the House and Senate Appropriations 
Committees intend to revisit this issue during the fiscal year 
2020 budget appropriation process if budget justification 
material continues to be deficient.

and State health departments and other entities as identified 
seeking guidance on how to address the substance use disorder 
challenges in their community. HRSA is directed to establish 
one such Center at an academic university, in a rural State 
where the U.S. Census Bureau defines over 60 percent of the 
population as rural. In addition, the university should be 
connected to an associated medical school that is already 
utilizing a collaborative approach to behavioral health care, 
with partnerships between the university and medical school, 
and the State has an effective, systems-wide approach to 
addiction treatment, such as the hub and spoke model. In 
addition, one Center shall be a public-private partnership 
between a nonprofit and an academic university to provide 
technical assistance and best practices on the development of 
recovery housing programs for substance use disorder 
intervention. This Center shall serve multiple States and be 
based on an intervention model with a demonstrated track 
record, including multi-year outcomes data conducted by an 
academic research institution. Furthermore, the Center shall 
focus on best practices for successful substance use disorder 
intervention for low income, high-risk individuals, including 
those who have been involved with the criminal justice system. 
Finally, one Center shall be at an academic university located 
in a State included in the Delta Regional Authority or 
Appalachian Regional Commission with an overdose death rate for 
synthetic opioids as determined by the Centers for Disease 
Control and Prevention higher than a 150 percent change between 
2015 and 2016.

                      OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR (OD)

      Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD).--The conferees 
encourage NIH to maintain and expand a multi-site 
infrastructure and network of clinical sites to extend the 
study of genetic and sporadic FTD cohorts. By supporting this 
research, researchers may increase our knowledge of the natural 
history of the disease and build an infrastructure for 
biomarker discovery and clinical trials in defined FTD cohorts. 
A key component of this will be to leverage recent advances in 
information technology to create an infrastructure for FTD 
research that will collect and record data and samples in a 
uniform manner, incorporate patient-reported data, and take 
advantage of new technologies that enable remote monitoring. 
Development of a data biosphere that supports broad sharing of 
robust datasets, generated with powerful -omic platforms, will 
enable the broader community of researchers, including younger 
investigators and scientists from a wide array of fields, to 
bring their expertise and intellectual curiosity to bear on the 
challenges currently confronting the Alzheimer's disease and 
related dementias disorders. In this way, the conferees hope to 
accelerate the understanding of basic disease mechanisms that 
may be common across forms of dementia and speed the 
translation of this information into much-needed therapeutics.
      Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act.--The conferees 
continue bill language for specific funds authorized by the 
Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act (P.L. 113-94) within 
the Common Fund to support the fifth year of the 10-year 
Pediatric Research Initiative. The conferees request an update 
in the fiscal year 2020 Congressional Justification on this 
effort as described in the House and Senate Reports.
      OIG Oversight.--The conferees direct the OD to transfer 
$5,000,000 to the HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) to 
support increased oversight of NIH's grant programs. These 
funds are in addition to the resources OIG currently dedicates 
to oversight of NIH. The conferees direct the Inspector General 
to submit a comprehensive audit plan for its oversight of NIH 
for fiscal years 2019 and 2020 to the Committee on 
Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate, 
the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, 
and the House Committee on Energy and Commerce not later than 
60 days from the date of enactment of this Act, and to brief 
the Committees on its implementation. In particular, the 
conferees direct the OIG to examine NIH's oversight of its 
grantees' compliance with NIH policies, including NIH efforts 
to ensure the integrity of its grant application evaluation and 
selection processes. The conferees also direct the OIG to 
examine the effectiveness of NIH's and grantee institutions' 
efforts to protect intellectual property derived from NIH-
supported research.
      Portfolio Analysis.--The conferees direct the NIH 
Director to conduct a comprehensive study and submit a report 
to Congress not later than one year from the date of enactment 
of this Act that: (1) includes a portfolio analysis of current 
funding levels for mental health and substance use disorder, 
and (2) identifies the process by which the NIH set funding 
priorities for mental health and substance use disorder 
programs, including how NIH takes into account newly developed 
public health needs, disease burden, emerging scientific 
opportunities, and scientific progress.
      Executive Employee Performance Bonuses.--The conferees 
direct the NIH Director to provide the Committees on 
Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate 
with information not later than ten days from thedate of 
enactment of this Act showing the bonus that each NIH executive 
employee was eligible to receive in fiscal years 2015, 2016, and 2017, 
and the portion of that bonus that each executive ultimately received 
in each of those three years. In addition, the conferees direct NIH to 
list all of the employees who report directly to the Director, and 
describe the formal and informal processes the Director uses to provide 
regular feedback to his direct reports and assess their performance. 
Finally, the conferees direct NIH to describe the process it relies 
upon to ensure executive performance plans are as much as possible 
based upon specific performance results and measurable outcomes.
      Trisomy 21.--The conferees applaud the NIH for 
significantly increasing its investment in Down syndrome 
research and for the NIH Director's leadership in advancing the 
trans-NIH initiative the Committees included in the fiscal year 
2018 appropriation. The conferees direct NIH to continue to 
make investments in Down syndrome research that prioritize 
funding for both research grants and early-stage investigators 
that will expand the current pipeline of Down syndrome 
research, as well as the implementation of the new trans-NIH 
initiative. In addition, the conferees encourage NIH to 
prioritize funding for research for emerging scientific 
opportunities to improve the health and neurodevelopment of 
individuals with Down syndrome and typical individuals at risk 
for immune system dysregulation, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, 
cardiovascular disease, and autism.
      Valley Fever.--The conferees understand that based on the 
recommendation of the independent Data and Safety Monitoring 
Board (DSMB) for the Valley Fever Randomized Controlled Trial 
(RCT), NIAID has halted enrollment in the RCT due to lack of 
patient enrollment, primarily those with Valley Fever. In light 
of this, the DSMB recommended revising the study protocol. 
Accordingly, the conferees direct NIAID to revise expeditiously 
the study design to address the critical need for effective 
treatment of Valley Fever in order to restart enrolling 
patients before the end of 2018, including increasing the 
number of participating healthcare provider enrollment sites. 
Furthermore, the conferees direct NIAID to work with 
stakeholders to develop and implement a plan to maximize the 
number of health care provider patient enrollment sites and 
raise awareness of this study with the broader public with the 
goal of increasing patient enrollment. The conferees direct 
NIAID to provide updates on the Valley Fever RCT revisions on a 
quarterly basis to the Committees on Appropriations of the 
House of Representatives and the Senate until patient 
enrollment is restarted, as well as a report on maximizing 
health care provider enrollment sites and public awareness 
plans to increase patient enrollment in the revised RCT within 
90 days from the date of enactment of this Act.

   Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

      The conferees strongly encourage SAMHSA to include as 
eligible applicants in new funding opportunity announcements, 
States, political subdivisions of States, Indian tribes or 
tribal organizations, health facilities, or programs operated 
by or in accordance with a contract or grant with the Indian 
Health Service, or other public or private nonprofit 
organizations. The conferees strongly encourage SAMHSA to 
exercise maximum flexibility when developing funding 
opportunity announcements to ensure that all eligible 
applicants may apply.

$45,000,000 shall be for the Credit Enhancement program. In 
addition, the conferees include up to $7,500,000 for developer 
grants to establish or expand charter schools in underserved, 
high-poverty, rural areas, as described in Senate Report 115-
289.

                 Safe Schools and Citizenship Education

      Within School Safety National Activities, not more than 
$10,000,000 may be for a demonstration program to test and 
evaluate innovative partnerships between institutions of higher 
education and States or high-need local educational agencies to 
train school counselors, social workers, psychologists, or 
other mental health professionals qualified to provide school-
based mental health services, with the goal of expanding the 
pipeline of these workers into low-income public elementary 
schools and secondary schools in order to address the shortages 
of mental health service professionals in such schools.

                           Special Education

      Within the total for Technical Assistance and

under the headings American Printing House for the Blind,

University in the amounts and as described in Senate Report 
115-289.

                 Career, Technical and Adult Education

      The conferees agree that the Secretary should use the 
authority in the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education 
Act to award innovation and modernization grants. These grants 
can support coding programs that can be particularly important 
in rural and underserved areas that do not have access to 
coding resources.

                      Student Financial Assistance

      The conferees include a $100 increase in the 
discretionary maximum Pell grant award, increasing the total 
maximum award, including additional mandatory funding, to 
$6,195 in award year 2019-2020.

                            Higher Education

      GEAR UP.--The conferees direct the Department to announce 
Notices Inviting Applications for New Awards for State Grants 
and Partnership Grants in the Federal Register. In such notice 
for State grants, the conferees direct the Department to uphold 
the long-standing guidance that States may only administer one 
active State GEAR UP grant at a time. The Secretary is directed 
to provide written guidance in the Federal Register notifying 
applicants that only States without an active State GEAR UP 
grant, or States that have an active State GEAR UP grant that 
is scheduled to end prior to October 1, 2019, will be eligible 
to receive a new State GEAR UP award funded in whole or in part 
by this appropriation.
      Federal TRIO Programs.--The conferees reiterate concerns 
communicated in both the House and Senate reports related to 
the allocation of the fiscal year 2018 funding for TRIO 
programs. The Department's plan disregarded House direction to 
allocate funding in the same ratio as the prior fiscal year. In 
addition, there is also concern that the Department may be 
placing burdensome requirements for the existing awardees in 
order for them to receive any additional funding. The conferees 
direct the Department to include in its fiscal year 2020 
Congressional Justification information about how these 
additional funds were awarded, including a detailed budget 
justification. Additionally, the conferees expect plans for 
funding allocations by activity within the TRIO programs to be 
included in the operating plan required under section 516 of 
this Act. Last, the conferees direct the Department to brief 
the Committees on Appropriations of the House of 
Representatives and the Senate on final funding allocations at 
least 30 days prior to the awarding of additional funding and/
or the posting of a Notice Inviting Applications for New 
Awards.
      Open Textbooks Pilot.--The conferees recommend that the 
Secretary award the funds provided in this Act through a new 
competition and make not less than 20 new grants with 
individual grants of between $100,000 and $1,000,000. The 
conferees recommend that the application deadline for the 
notice inviting grant applications for fiscal year 2019 be not 
less than 60 days from the date the notice is published. 
Further, any tools, technologies, or other resources that are 
created, developed, or improved wholly or in part with Pilot 
funds for use with an open textbook must be licensed under a 
worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and 
irrevocable license to the public to exercise any of the rights 
under copyright conditioned only on the requirement that 
attribution be given as directed by the copyright owner.

  Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program

      The conferees include additional funding for the 
deferment of outstanding loans for private historically Black 
colleges and universities. Based on current estimates, the 
conferees expect this funding will allow the Department to fund 
all 13 eligible requests for loan deferment it received during 
fiscal year 2018.

                    Institute of Education Sciences

      The conferees direct the National Assessment Governing 
Board to brief the Committees on Appropriations of the House of 
Representatives and the Senate within 60 days from the date of 
enactment of this Act on the resources required to administer a 
long-term trend assessment by 2021.

                        Departmental Management

      The conferees note that the front matter of this joint 
explanatory statement establishes that the Department should be 
guided by language included in the House and Senate Reports, 
and when the House or Senate Report address a particular issue 
not addressed in this explanatory statement, the House or 
Senate Report should carry the same emphasis as language 
included in this explanatory statement.
      The conferees reiterate concern expressed in Senate 
Report 115-289 regarding the Department's responsiveness to 
technical assistance requests and continues to note that it 
expects the Department to comply in a timely manner with its 
requests for technical assistance and information, consistent 
with past practice including timely answers that respond to any 
specific inquiries.
      Computer Science Education.--The conferees agree that 
computer science education programs, including coding 
academies, can provide important benefits to local industries 
and the economy and help meet in-demand workforce needs. 
Therefore, the Departments of Labor and Education should work 
together with industry to improve and expand computer science 
education programs and opportunities, including through 
apprenticeships.
      Reorganization.--The conferees acknowledge the 
Department's efforts to brief congressional committees on its 
reorganization plans. However, concerns remain that the views 
of stakeholders are not being adequately addressed. In 
particular, the conferees recognize the value of the Office of 
English Language Acquisition and the Office of Career, 
Technical and Adult Education (OCTAE) and are concerned that 
the elimination or consolidation of either office will 
undermine the ability of the Department to fulfill not only its 
mission, but also congressional directives to implement 
relevant programs and purposes. Further, the conferees note 
that OCTAE is authorized expressly in statute and cannot be 
consolidated or reorganized except by specific authority 
granted by Congress.
      STEM Education.--The conferees direct the Secretary to 
submit the report described in section 313 of division B of 
H.R. 6157 as passed by the Senate on August 23, 2018.
      Study on School Facilities.--The conferees delete without 
prejudice section 315 of the Senate bill and direct the 
Comptroller General of the United States to conduct a study on 
the condition of the public school facilities (including 
charter schools) of the United States and their adequacy to 
support a 21st century education as described in section 315 of 
division B of H.R. 6157 as passed by the Senate on August 23, 
2018.

                  Social Security Administration (SSA)

                 LIMITATION ON ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

      Administrative Law Judges.--It is vital that 
Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) be independent, impartial, and 
selected based on their qualifications. The conferees expect 
SSA to maintain a high standard for the appointment of ALJs, 
including the requirement that ALJs have demonstrated 
experience as a licensed attorney and pass an ALJ examination 
administered by the Office of Personnel Management.
      Consultative Examinations.--The conferees support efforts 
by SSA to pursue, where practicable, and in conjunction with 
State Disability Determination Services, pilot demonstrations 
that would evaluate the feasibility of, potential 
administrative savings from, and potential for improvements in 
the quality of consultative examinations from the 
implementation of contracts for consultative examinations. In 
addition, the conferees request SSA include in its fiscal year 
2020 Congressional Justification the following information: (1) 
annual number of consultative examinations, including the 
number for each State, (2) the percentage of applicants who 
require a consultative exam, and the share of those exams which

examination completion nationally, including the number of days 
for each State, and (4) the total cost of consultative 
examinations nationally, including the cost of consultative 
examinations by State.

modernize their case processing systems. The conferees remain 
concerned with the progress of the DCPS upgrade. Within 90 days 
from the date of enactment of this Act, SSA shall submit a 
report to the Committees on Appropriations of the House of 
Representatives and the Senate and the authorizing committees

functionality as DCPS without imposing costs that are higher 
than using DCPS, (2) actions taken by SSA to enable COTS field 
production deployment, and (3) a description of any challenges, 
cost constraints, or legal barriers to implementation from
