Reimbursements are derived from refund of terminal leave payments (5 U.S.C. 61(b)) and proceeds from sale of personal property (40 U.S.C. 481(c)).

The request for new obligational authority for 1966 is $4.9 million less than the total request for 1965. This decrease is due primarily to (1) reorganization of field installations, including the consolidation of 17 regional offices into larger, more efficient units, (2) financing the cost of data processing operations related to medical programs on a reimbursement basis, and (3) increased pro166, 102 ductivity and declining workloads.

This appropriation provides for all administrative expenses of the Agency with the exception of those applicable to the Department of Medicine and Surgery.

General and special funds—Continued

GENERAL OPERATING EXPENSES-Continued

The program includes provision for the impact of Public Law 88-664 approved October 13, 1964, covering revisions in the veterans' pension program, limited reopening of National service life insurance and a new "modified life plan" of National service life insurance. Under the "reopening" provisions of the law it is estimated that 500,000 policies will be issued during the reopening period. The initial administrative expenses and maintenance costs will be reimbursed from the Veterans' reopened insurance fund, which is being established to service the new programs.

1. General administration.-In addition to the executive direction of the Agency, this activity covers the Board of Veterans Appeals, which decides all cases (other than insurance cases) of appeals to the Administrator on claims involving benefits under veterans legislation.

New claims (disability and death)..
Reopened claims (disability and death)..
Dependency and income claims (disa-
bility and death).
Cases involving guardianship or fiduciary
relationship.
Field examinations completed..

2. Data management. This activity is responsible for managing all automatic data processing operations. Further development of ADP operations will improve service to veterans, provide better information for management and research, and reduce operating costs.

11.1

3. Veterans benefits.-Veterans' and dependents' claims
