related to the needs of developing or transitional countries and
their commitment to sustainable development; (3) U.S. national
interests and foreign policy considerations; and (4)
Congressional and Administration priorities.
To the extent
possible, the Agency also applies its "performance informed"
budgeting system to the resources it manages in collaboration
with other agencies, including the Economic Support Fund (ESF),
the Support for East European Democracy Act(SEED), the FREEDOM
Support Act (FSA), and PL 480 Titles II and III food assistance
(requested by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as part of its
budget).
The Agency prepared this performance plan by assuming the
Administration will continue to emphasize support for programs in
population, environment (especially global climate change), and
democracy while the Congress will continue strong support for
child survival, HIV/AIDS, infectious diseases and basic
education.
Should these assumptions not hold, or if
appropriations vary significantly from the requests, USAID would
expect to modify its FY 1999 performance benchmarks.
Accordingly, the Agency has requested program resources in the
following amounts to achieve its FY 1999 performance benchmarks.
The requests are presented by Agency goal area.
