in volume growth experienced during the past several years is expected to continue through 1965.

6. Building occupancy: Sale of sites and related costs to prospective lessors. This program provides for purchase of sites for construction of leased postal facilities and payments of architect-engineering fees for the design of such buildings. The sites are resold to successful bidders upon award of the agreement to lease, and the proceeds reimbursed to the Facilities appropriation. The amount estimated for 1965 results from the larger value of awards which will be made in 1965 as compared with 1964.

ADMINISTRATION OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS—Con. General and special funds-Continued

ACQUISITION, OPERATION, AND MAINTENANCE OF BUILDINGS ABROAD Continued

The program has been financed primarily through the purchase of foreign currencies held by the Treasury Department resulting from lend-lease settlements, sale of surplus war property, and other sources. Starting in 1961, a separate appropriation for the purchase of foreign currencies under Public Law 480 increased the resources available to the building program. These supplemental funds are being used principally to acquire capital assets in the form of real property, thereby accelerating the foreign buildings program.

Outmoded or otherwise unsatisfactory Governmentowned or leased office space is replaced with structures designed specifically to meet the particular needs of the Foreign Service or other oversea Government operations. Housing is provided American employees in localities where suitable housing is otherwise unavailable.

Appropriations are made pursuant to periodic congressional authorizations. Authority for appropriations of $90 million, enacted in 1952, was exhausted with the appropriation of $10.7 million for 1961. Interim authorities provided appropriations of $10 million each for 1962 and 1963. These amounts were required almost entirely for the expenses of operating present property holdings, leaving no significant balance for capital projects.

Public Law 88-94, approved August 12, 1963, authorized appropriations of $26.3 million for capital facilities and $23.5 million for operations. Appropriations requested under this authorization will finance the most urgent of a backlog of needed office buildings and housing in 1964 and 1965. Emphasis has been placed on acquiring offices and housing in Africa at posts which have been recently established or elevated to embassy status.
