    Note.--In 1998 and 1999, all 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.

    The USIA Strategic Plan for 1997-2002 was submitted to Congress in 
September 1997 in compliance with the 1993 Government Performance and 
Results Act (GPRA). The Agency expects to submit its FY 1999 Performance 
Plan to the Congress in February 1998.

    USIA's efforts to realize the benefits of a well-functioning 
performance and results management system are underway. Agency elements 
are collecting data and beginning to make management and program 
decisions based on the findings. Overseas field posts are submitting 
more concise and focused reports for data collection and identifying 
their objectives more clearly. These objectives are closely linked to 
and aligned with the strategic goals of the International Affairs 
Strategic Plan through continuing collaboration with our counterparts 
and colleagues in the State Department and other foreign affairs 
agencies in developing a strategic framework for the mission and goals 
of the foreign affairs community as a whole.

    Using the Strategic and Performance Plans as a guide, the Agency is 
focusing its resources more directly on the strategic goals and 
performance objectives and, to this end, is reviewing management and 
budget systems to achieve more visible accountability.

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

[[Page 1148]]

    Overseas missions.--The Agency currently operates 192 U.S. 
Information Service (USIS) posts in 141 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 includes 
payment to the Department of State for USIA's share of the costs of 
services provided for overseas operations. The Department was reimbursed 
for the Distributed Administrative Support (DAS) services by 
participating agencies under the Foreign Affairs Administrative Support 
System (FAAS) in 1997. In 1998, the FAAS system is being replaced with 
the International Cooperative Administrative Support Services (ICASS) 
system. This activity also covers payments 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 and to 
assist in the development of peaceful relations between the United 
States and other countries. These goals are addressed by fostering 
increased mutual understanding through international exchange and 
training activities. 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 as well as Fulbright's 
Hubert H. Humphrey program; the Edmund S. Muskie fellowship program 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; 
cooperative 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; and other 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 all funding for domestic staff and 
support costs related to exchange programs managed by

[[Page 1150]]

the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. USIS overseas posts 
provide support to these programs abroad.

     The Agency has developed a framework for strategic planning and 
performance measurement of programs in accordance with the Government 
Performance and Results Act of 1993. In 1999, performance measurement 
data will be collected, analyzed, and used in Educational and Cultural 
Exchanges Programs budgeting and decision making.

    The Bureau has established the Office of U.S. Government Exchanges 
Coordination to support the work of the Interagency Working Group on 
United States Government-sponsored International Exchanges and Training. 
This Office will establish an information clearinghouse for government-
wide exchanges, and will collect data and conduct analysis of U.S. 
Government-funded and private-sector exchanges. In 1999, the Bureau will 
continue to develop the exchanges coordination function as an instrument 
of policy support, working closely with dozens of Federal departments 
and agencies which are striving with USIA to achieve such coordination.

    The National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is a private, nonprofit 
corporation established in the District of Columbia to encourage and 
strengthen the development of democratic institutions and processes 
internationally. NED supports democratic initiatives in six regions of 
the world: Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, the 
Middle East and the NIS.

    The National Endowment for Democracy Act provides that the U.S. 
Information Agency will make an annual grant to the Endowment to enable 
the Endowment to fulfill the purposes of the Act. The Endowment does not 
carry out programs directly but its Board approves annual grants to the 
American Center for International Solidarity, the Center for 
International Private Enterprise, the International Republican 
Institute, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, 
and scores of indigenous organizations working to promote civic 
education, human rights, independent media, and other democratic 
processes and values.

    This appropriation provides operational funding for all United 
States non-military international broadcasting. The account reflects the 
requirements of the International Broadcasting Act of 1994 (the Act) to 
consolidate all non-military international broadcasting activities. 
Specifically, the appropriation will fund the Broadcasting Board of 
Governors (BBG), the Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty 
(RFE/RL), Radio Free Asia, the WORLDNET Television and Film Service, 
Radio and Television Broadcasting to Cuba, and

[[Page 1153]]

the necessary engineering, technical, and administrative support 
activities.

    Pursuant to the Foreign Affairs Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 
1994-95, RFE/RL continues to seek and explore opportunities for private 
sector funding. Significant steps have been taken over the past three 
years.

    The RFE/RL Research Institute was privatized in 1994 by founding, 
together with the Open Society Institute, the Open Media Research 
Institute (OMRI). In 1997, Open Society Institute ended its support for 
OMRI. RFE/RL took back a small part of OMRI operations essential to 
support broadcasting. All other RFE/RL research operations were 
terminated.

    Since passage of the Act, RFE/RL has placed priority on privatizing 
its Polish and Czech language services. In 1994, both services were 
reconstituted as separate non-profit corporations. RFE/RL explored 
private funding of its Warsaw-based Polish service spin-off, RWE, with 
several media companies over the past three years. These discussions 
were ultimately unsuccessful. RFE/RL's Polish-language broadcasting 
ceased at the end of 1997. RFE/RL entered into a joint venture with 
Czech Public Radio for Czech-language broadcasting in 1995. The Czech 
host government, which provides RFE/RL's rent-free headquarters in 
Prague, has asked RFE/RL to ensure that these broadcasts continue. Czech 
Public Radio pays most of the costs, and minor underwriting support from 
Czech companies has been obtained.

    RFE/RL's efforts to privatize to date suggest severe limits on the 
potential for advertising or underwriting revenue for news and public 
affairs programming in the former Soviet bloc. In much of this area, 
significant advertising markets have yet to develop. Where advertising 
markets do exist, they are often barely able to sustain small, emerging 
local broadcasters, who concentrate mainly on popular music and other 
entertainment programming.

    A special office at RFE/RL headquarters has been established to 
continue to explore privatization opportunities.

    In compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act, 
International Broadcasting has developed five performance measures. 
Baselines for 1997 and 1998, and targets for 1999 have been developed. 
Research methodology is in place for some of the measures, while under 
development for others.

    In 1998 and prior years, funding for Radio and Television 
Broadcasting to Cuba was provided in a separate appropriation.
