MENT AND ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION APPROPRIATION BILL, 1974
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4, 1973. ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION
DR. DIXY LEE RAY, CHAIRMAN, AEC
Mr. Evins. The committee will come to order. This morning we begin our hearings with the Atomic Energy Commission. We will place in the record at this point the general statement for operating expenses and the general statement for plant and capital equipment. [The information follows:]
U. S. ATOMIC ENERGY COMMISSION
FY 1974 Budget Estimates
Estimate of Appropriation The budget estimates for Direct Program Operating Expenses for FY 1974 provide for total obligations of $2,662,050,000 to be funded by (1) a new appropriation of $1,754,750,000 (2) an estimated $692,000,000 to be received as revenues from non-Federal sources during the fiscal year, and (3) an unobligated balance of $215,300,000 available at the start of the year.
Estimates of costs and Obligations The budget estimates for this appropriation are stated in terms of accrued costs for each of the AEC's direct operating programs. "Accrued costs" denotes the actual application of labor, materials and services to the program during the year, but excludes depreciation of facilities used in the operations. The AEC does, however, maintain accounts for depreciation for the purpose of determining total costs of production and for use in establishing prices for services rendered or products sold to others.
The costs of operation are reconciled to the total obligations to be incurred during the year by estimating the build-up or decrease during the year of the resources that are to be applied to future years' operations. These estimates are included in the section titled "Increase or Decrease in Selected Resources" and include inventories and undelivered orders.
From total obligations are deducted the revenues estimated to be obtained from non-Federal sources in order to arrive at the amount of appropriations required. These revenues include income from the sale and lease of products, materials, services performed for others, and other miscellaneous sources. These revenues are identified and summarized under the tab "Revenues Applied."
Also this section includes a statement of AEC's Reimbursable Program (for the first time). This results from the change this year in the presentation of the Appendix to the President's Budget, whereby the Reimbursable Program has been consolidated with the Direct Program in AEC's Program and Financing schedule. In previous years the Reimbursable Program was included under the Advances and Reimbursements Schedule in the Budget Appendix that has now been eliminated. It should be noted that the costs and obligations related to the Reimbursable Program are not financed by AEC's appropriated funds but solely through reimbursable agreements with other Federal agencies.
The following table summarizes the accrued costs for AEC's Direct Program and for the Reimbursable Program, and the total obligations for each, for fiscal years 1972, 1973 and 1974. The detail justifications for the Direct Program activities are presented in the same order as they appear in this summary table.
