GAO presented material for consideration in preparation of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's views and estimates report on the President's fiscal year (FY) 1984 budget proposals.

Appropriation accounts and budget functions under the committee's jurisdiction reflect increases of $969 million in budget authority and $2 billion in outlays for FY 1984. Outlays for international affairs would increase by $1.3 billion with major increases in foreign aid which includes economic and military assistance. Specific program areas which are targeted for increases include: International Security Assistance programs, Department of State programs in the conduct of foreign affairs, and foreign information exchange activities which include the Voice of America. Outlays for international financial programs and the Export-Import Bank are also estimated to increase. Reductions in outlays are estimated for the Department of the Treasury, the Exchange Stabilization Fund, and the Foreign Military Sales Program. GAO noted that the International Communication Agency was redesigned as the U.S. Information Agency and that a number of programs under the committee's jurisdiction would require reauthorization.
