    Note.--In FY 1998, staff and associated support costs for Educational 
and Cultural Affairs will be funded in the Exchanges programs account.

    The United States Information Agency conducts the international 
informational, educational, cultural and exchange programs of the United 
States and advises the President, the National Security Council, and the 
Secretary of State on these matters. The Agency defines, explains, and 
advocates U.S. policies abroad and seeks to increase knowledge and 
understanding among foreign audiences of U.S. society and its values.

    In 1996, the Agency completed a strategic plan and identified 
preliminary goals, objectives and measurements for all key programs in 
accordance with the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. In 
1998, USIA will continue to collect information on performance that will 
be used to develop future budget requests.

    Agency overseas information and cultural program operations and 
support functions are financed from this appropriation and consist of 
the following major elements.

    Overseas missions.--The Agency currently operates 190 U.S. 
Information Service posts in 140 countries. These USIS posts administer 
exchange-of-persons programs and conduct informational and cultural 
activities using, primarily, materials and programs provided by support 
offices in Washington, D.C.

    Bureau of Information.--This technologically advanced Bureau 
supports U.S. foreign policy by means of instant and in-depth 
communications with international opinion leaders and policy makers. The 
Bureau provides information electronically through the Agency's World 
Wide Web home pages, its daily Washington File and biweekly thematic 
journals. It supports the Agency's U.S. foreign press centers and 
overseas Information Resource Centers, which draw on databases and other 
electronically delivered information. The Bureau supports U.S. speakers 
and specialists at U.S. Information Service posts not only through 
overseas travel, but also through interactive dialogues via telephone 
and digitized video conferences. It also publishes pamphlets and other 
printed materials for distribution to those who influence international 
opinion.

    Agency direction and management.--This activity includes managerial 
staffs, research and centralized servicing functions for the Agency.

    Administrative support from other agencies.--This activity covers 
payments to the Department of State for USIA's share of the costs of 
services provided for overseas operations, to the General Services 
Administration for space and services provided under the Federal 
building rent system, and payments to other agencies for services 
provided.

    This appropriation provides funding for programs authorized by the 
Mutual Educational and Cultural Exchange Act of 1961, as amended, to 
support U.S. foreign, economic and security policy objectives by 
fostering increased mutual understanding between the people of the 
United States and other nations. Programs under this appropriation 
include:

    Academic Programs.--Includes the J. William Fulbright Educational 
Exchange Program for the exchange of students, scholars and teachers 
between the United States and foreign countries; Hubert H. Humphrey and 
Edmund S. Muskie fellowship programs of academic study and internships 
for mid-career professionals from developing countries and the Newly 
Independent States of the former Soviet Union (NIS); graduate- and 
postdoctoral-level Near and Middle East studies and research by U.S. 
students and scholars; and programs in support of the study of the 
United States in other countries designed to promote better foreign 
understanding of the United States.

    Professional/Cultural Exchanges.--Includes the International Visitor 
Program which supports travel in the United States by emerging foreign 
political leaders, professionals and educators to obtain firsthand 
knowledge about the United States, its people, politics and culture; and 
cooperative exchange programs with non-governmental organizations, such 
as the Citizen Exchanges Program which awards grants to U.S. non-profit 
organizations for professional, cultural, institutional, and grassroots 
community exchanges with foreign counterparts; the Congress-Bundestag 
Exchange Program; and other special programs.

    NIS and SEED Exchanges.--Includes democracy and free-market 
development programs for the exchange of students, scholars and 
professionals between the United States and the NIS and Central and 
Eastern Europe under the FREEDOM Support Act of 1992 and the Support for 
East European Democracy Act of 1989.

    Exchanges Support.--Includes staff and associated support costs 
required to administer the programs noted above. It also provides 
support costs for the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, 
binational centers, English teaching and other educational and cultural 
activities. In the past several years, funding for these costs was 
divided between the Salaries and Expenses and Educational and Cultural 
Exchange Programs accounts. In 1998, funding for all staff and 
associated support costs for programs managed by the Bureau of 
Educational and Cultural Affairs is requested in this appropriation.

    The Agency has developed a strategic framework for performance 
measurement of Educational and Cultural Exchange Programs in accordance 
with the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA). In 1998, 
performance meas-

[[Page 1129]]

urement data will be collected, evaluated and used in policy 
implementation and program management.

    Finally, the Administration is taking steps to establish an Office 
of U.S. Government International Exchange and Training Coordination in 
USIA's Educational and Cultural Affairs Bureau. This office will lead an 
effort to increase cooperation and eliminate duplication of effort among 
over 35 Federal agencies that administer international exchange and 
training programs.

Enterprise, the National Republican Institute for International Affairs, 
the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, and other 
private sector organizations, both in the United States and abroad.
