    The activities of the Bureau of Export Administration (BXA) are 
designed to enforce U.S. export trade laws consistent with national 
security, foreign policy, and short supply objectives. The program 
strives to achieve a balance between the interests of U.S. exporters, 
the U.S. economy and U.S. national security requirements.

    Management and policy coordination.--The management and policy 
coordination program controls the development, analysis, coordination, 
and consolidation of policy initiatives and responses within the BXA. 
Under BXA's nonproliferation and export control cooperation mission, BXA 
works directly with government leaders in the Newly Independent States 
(NIS) to develop effective controls on their strategic commodities and 
data.

    An increase is being requested to promote export control cooperation 
with the independent states of the former Soviet Union, the Baltics, and 
Central Europe in order to facilitate legitimate trade and to stop the 
proliferation of sensitive items to rogue states and terrorists. These 
efforts were funded by the Departments of Defense and State in the past.

    Export administration.--The export administration program assures 
that export activity is consistent with national security and foreign 
policy requirements.

    An increase is being requested to provide full year funding to 
administer the on-site inspection requirements imposed on commercial 
chemical manufacturing facilities under the Chemical Weapons Convention 
(CWC). This program was started in 1998 and was partially funded in that 
year. A second increase is being requested to fund fully the increase 
that was approved for partial year funding in 1998 (due to delays in 
passage of implementing legislation) to administer and enforce the 
complex inspections and reporting requirements of the CWC.

    Export enforcement.--The export enforcement program detects and 
prevents the illegal distribution of controlled U.S. goods and technical 
data in violation of the export administration provisions of the U.S. 
Code. Responsibilities also include

[[Page 200]]

enforcement of prohibitions against participating in unsanctioned 
boycotts against countries friendly to the United States.

    An increase is being requested for (1) new responsibilities related 
to encryption controls, which were moved from State to BXA by an 
Executive Order; (2) fully staffing field offices for more intensive 
prevention and deterrent enforcement efforts; (3) enhanced preventive 
enforcement to stop and analyze illegal shipments before they reach 
their point of destination; and (4) Fastener Quality Act public safety 
legislation.

    Activities under this account support two themes of the Commerce 
Strategic Plan:

        Theme: U.S. competitiveness in the global marketplace

                                        1997         1998        1999

  Transition of defense industries:

        Theme: American competitiveness through science, technology and 
    an unrivaled information base

                                        1997         1998        1999

      systems established...........          13          20          30

    A more detailed presentation of goals, objectives, and performance 
measures is found in the Commerce Strategic Plan.
