Includes: (1) Financial Crimes and Money Laundering, (2) Fighting Corruption, (3) Cyber Crime, Intellectual Property Rights and Critical Infrastructure Protection, (4) Border Security and Alien Smuggling; (5) Combating Transnational Criminal Networks.

Program Overview

Transnational crime and illicit networks pose a significant threat to domestic and international security. The increasing role of illicit networks in the world of organized crime complicates the challenge of effectively combating transnational security threats. INL Anti-Crime teams address the growing threats that transnational crime poses to U.S. national interests including high-level corruption (kleptocracy) in the public sector, money laundering and terrorist financing, cyber- and intellectual property crimes, border security, narcotics trafficking, and other smuggling and trafficking crimes. These Anti-Crime teams help to strengthen criminal justice systems and law enforcement capabilities around the world to act against transnational criminal threats before they extend beyond their borders and impact our homeland.

Program Goals and Objectives

Anti-Crime teams continue to develop enforcement tools, such as groundbreaking conventions and protocols, that provide the United States with the framework to strengthen international cooperation among committed governments and partners that are needed to develop capabilities to combat transnational crime and illicit networks (deter, disrupt, defeat, and dismantle).

Objective 1: Increase the total number of governments implementing, and complying with, internationally-recognized standards such as the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC), the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), and recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

Objective 2: Increase the number of countries that have criminalized corruption, money-laundering, and terrorist financing, and enacted and implemented other important anti-crime legislation; and increase the number of effective Financial Investigative Units (FIUs) and financial police, anticorruption authorities, and other investigatory and prosecutorial bodies.

Objective 3: Strengthen criminal justice institutions and systems to successfully conduct criminal investigations and prosecutions.

FY 2012 Program

The FY 2012 Anti-Crime programs consist of INL’s core initiatives and projects that support the Administration’s priorities of fighting transnational crime and protecting the United States and its citizens from the effects of such crime and illicit threats.

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

Border Security/Alien Smuggling

In FY 2012, INL will continue to contribute to the Organization of American States’ Counter-Terrorism Committee (OAS/CICTE) to support activities in the Western Hemisphere. Funds will support the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), other international organizations, and U.S. Government agencies, in order to raise international standards globally, foster international cooperation and coordination, and build the capacity of law enforcement and border security institutions in developing countries. INL will also continue to work closely with the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations (DHS/HIS – formerly Immigration and Customs Enforcement) to fund delivery of training programs and technical assistance designed to enhance capabilities to identify fraudulent documents and methods of moving large quantities of cash, undocumented individuals, and illicit goods across international borders. INL continues to increase direct involvement in border security programs outside the Western Hemisphere, particularly in Asia and Africa. INL will focus on helping coordinate the activities of the interagency anti-smuggling community in their efforts to disrupt and dismantle major alien smuggling networks which operate both domestically and overseas.

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)/Cyber Crime

In FY 2010, INL and the Bureau of Economic, Energy, and Business Affairs adapted the program to ensure goals and objectives are consistent with the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator’s office established by Congress. While continuing to target training and technical assistance projects to focus on priority countries, we initiated new focus on combating counterfeit pharmaceuticals, which are an imminent threat to health and human safety. INL continues to works with private industry to avoid duplicating efforts to address intellectual property crime. In the area of cyber crime, FY 2012 funds will continue to support improvements in foreign law enforcement capabilities to identify, investigate and successfully prosecute the growing misuse of information technologies, with particular emphasis on assistance to less developed nations that are just now expanding their wireless networks.

Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crimes

Funds will continue to support multilateral and regional organizations, including portions of U.S. Government dues paid to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and Asia-Pacific Group against Money Laundering (APG), and supporting the efforts of FATF-Style Regional Bodies as they build capacities to adopt and implement international standards in their respective regions. FY 2012 funds will continue to support regional mentors in Asia and Africa, via contributions to the UN Global Program against Money Laundering (GPML), as well as provide targeted training sessions. Funds will also continue to support DHS efforts to combat trade-based money laundering through the establishment of trade transparency units and capacity-building training and technical expertise in cooperative countries. Funds will also further U.S. Government anti-money laundering/counter-financing of terrorisms goals in the Gulf, Middle East/North Africa (MENA), Afghanistan/Pakistan, and West Africa including furthering efforts started in late FY 2009 to support development of viable FATF-Style Regional Bodies.

Transnational Organized Crime

INL will build on efforts underway since FY 2010 to promote greater international cooperation against transnational organized crime, particularly in four thematic areas: 1) assisting UN member states to implement the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its supplemental protocols; 2) developing national central authorities for cross-border mutual legal assistance on transnational criminal cases in key regions most at risk to transnational criminal networks; 3) promoting effective forms of public/private sector cooperation against transnational organized crime, particularly through the UN Office on Drugs and Crime; and 4) supporting the work of investigative journalists who expose and raise public awareness of transnational organized crime in key countries most at risk. Funds will also support law enforcement cooperation with regional multilateral institutions such as Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the European Union, and partnerships across the Pacific and Atlantic to combat transnational crime and dismantle illicit networks.

Rule of Law and Human Rights

Anticorruption

INL will continue U.S. Government leadership on anticorruption issues in FY 2012 by sustaining efforts to implement UNCAC and other international anticorruption provisions. FY 2012 funds will provide the resources needed to support efforts to expand the multilateral fight against kleptocracy around the world. Such efforts include denying safe haven to corrupt officials and to recover proceeds of corruption, which furthers Congressional mandates as well as G-20 and other Presidential commitments to deny visas to kleptocrats and increase cooperation on recovery of stolen assets. Anticorruption funds will continue U.S, Government participation in FY 2012 in multilateral anticorruption monitoring mechanisms (e.g., OAS, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, Council of Europe Group of States Against Corruption, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption) that rely on U.S. Government support and participation to effectively promote concrete reform to comply with these standards. FY 2012 will be critical to moving UNCAC to consolidation of the new process for robust review of implementation criteria, bolstered by on-the-ground implementation activities, and will see a new approach to promoting anticorruption reform activities in the OAS countries. Funding will: capitalize on new opportunities to engage reformers in the Middle East; sustain multilateral anticorruption efforts in Africa and Eastern Europe/Eurasia/Central Asia; permit focus on key emerging issues such as investigation of high-level corruption, building capacity of justice sector officials and policymakers, and safeguarding anticorruption authorities.

Program Overview

Transnational gangs, such as MS-13 and M18, are a security threat for the United States and the Central American countries where they are active, particularly in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Gangs are responsible for massive levels of extortion, homicides, drug distribution, thefts and other crimes, and there is also anecdotal evidence of the growing transnational nature of gangs, particularly MS-13. The Criminal Youth Gangs program continues to implement the six elements identified in the regional strategy for Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, and is adding prevention, prison, investigation and intelligence programs in Belize, Panama and Nicaragua.

Program Goals and Objectives

The Criminal Youth Gangs program supports the U.S. Strategy to Combat the Threat of Criminal Gangs from Central America and Mexico. Public security, particularly criminal youth gangs, is a primary element in the 2012Mission Strategic and Resource Plans of embassies El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, Panama, and Nicaragua. This program also supports the FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Counternarcotics, Transnational Crime, and Criminal Justice Sector Capacity Building and Security Sector Reform (SSR).

Objective 1: Build bilateral and regional capacity to reduce crime by transnational criminal youth gangs operating in Central America and the United States.

Objective 2: Support cross-country coordination, technical training and equipment for the region where current programming is underway, and support strong prevention and law enforcement programs in areas were gangs are expanding.

FY 2012 Program

Transnational Crime

Investigative Capacity – Funds will provide vetting and group training in such areas as investigative techniques, portable fingerprint registration devices and related training, and digitization of paper fingerprint cards. The program will support officer exchanges between and among the regions Anti-Gang Units.

Legal Capacity - Judges, prosecutors and technicians will be trained in such topics as evidence collection by ballistics and fingerprint analysis, including collection techniques, analysis, and use as evidence in courts.

Intelligence Capacity – Funds will provide training and tools such as computers, computerized data bases, crime mapping, and analyst exchanges. It will also support anonymous tip lines for community members who fear reprisals for reporting gang crime in person, and support the development of multi-agency intelligence sharing models.

Community Policing - Funds will expand community policing models, analyze successful elements of community policing in other countries, and interchange experts, among other activities. Funds will also support the implementation of police-led after-school programs such as the Police Athletic League. Emphasis will be placed on “best practices” as identified through the 2010-2011 scientifically-conducted public surveys and crime analysis research in each of the targeted model precinct projects. Host nations will be encouraged to replicate those practices in additional communities utilizing currently available resources.

Prevention – Funds will support in-country and regional programs, such as non-governmental organizations (NGOs), programs for youth at risk, media campaigns to de-glamorize the gang image, the Gang Resistance Education and Training (GREAT) program, and a regional prevention conference. Funds will also support preventative policing tools such as mapping crimes.

Prisons – Funds will continue training for corrections officials on effective management and rehabilitation of criminals and obtaining improved investigative information from incarcerated criminals. Support will also include equipment, such as computers and radios, corrections officer exchanges, and establish prison Security Threat Group Intelligence Units, and gang validation and “drop-out” programs.

Technical Assistance - Funds will support a Regional Gangs advisor, three country gang program managers, three model precinct/community police advisors, and a regional prisons training advisor, among other support.

Program Overview

The need for demand reduction is reflected in escalating worldwide drug use that takes a devastating toll on the health and welfare of all countries, in addition to undermining economic development, social and political stability, and security in emerging democracies and developing countries that are strategic U.S. allies. Recently documented unprecedented child drug addiction poses new public health threats to selected regions worldwide.

Program Goals and Objectives

The demand reduction program supports INL’s FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Transnational Crime and Counternarcotics, in addition to international drug prevention and treatment priorities outlined in the President’s National Drug Control Strategy.

Objective 1: Significantly reduce drug use, related crime, and violence in targeted country populations.

Objective 2: Significantly delay onset of first use in targeted country populations.

FY 2012 Program

Training and Technical Assistance

Regional Training: Funding will provide support for sub-regional training that disseminates the latest science-based information and “best practices” on effective methods to prevent and reduce drug use and related violence. Training will target cocaine abuse (especially crack addiction among juveniles), methamphetamine and intravenous heroin abuse that lead to increased prevalence of HIV/AIDS, rising adolescent drug use, and unique addiction problems affecting women and children. Target sub-regions include Africa, South America, Russia and Central Asia, Southeast/Southwest Asia, and Central America/Mexico (addressing multiple threats of criminal gangs, drug cartels, and illegal drug use).

Research and Demonstration Programs

Women’s Drug Treatment Initiative: Funds will support the continued development of critically-needed, gender-sensitive training curriculum and follow-on training assistance that addresses the unique needs of female addicts worldwide.

Muslim-based Anti-Drug Demonstration Programs: Funds will support model outreach and aftercare centers in volatile Muslim regions, especially Southeast and Southwest Asia. These centers are designed to reduce drug consumption whose proceeds are a potential source of terrorist financing and provide at-risk youth alternatives to radical or terrorist indoctrination centers.

Child/Adolescent Drug Treatment Initiative: Funds will support pilot drug intervention programs for crack cocaine addicted children ages 7 - 8 in Latin America, in addition to development of novel drug treatment protocols and related training curricula worldwide.

Coalition and Networks

Drug-Free Community Coalitions: Funds will support the enhancement of effective drug-free community coalition programs (in Mexico, Latin America, Asia, and Africa) that assist civil society/grassroots organizations in fighting illegal drugs. These public/private sector coalitions work towards reducing substance abuse among youth.

ILEAs help advance U.S. interests by developing international cooperation and promoting social, political, and economic stability. To achieve these goals, the ILEAs provide training and technical assistance, support institution building, develop law enforcement capabilities, and foster U.S. law enforcement relationships with foreign counterparts to address common problems resulting from criminal activities.

Program Goals and Objectives

National law enforcement capabilities will be strengthened and stronger linkages between U.S. law enforcement entities and foreign counterparts will be established through training at the five ILEAs: Bangkok, Budapest, Gaborone, San Salvador, and Roswell, and at the ILEA in Lima.

Objective 1: The total number of students trained will be approximately 4,500.

Objective 2: Graduates will apply methods and technologies learned at the academies to conduct successful criminal investigations.

Objective 3: Alumni will actively train others, either at their national academies or on-the-job.

FY 2012 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

The FY 2012 program consists of the traditional ILEAs, and projects that support the Administration’s Shared Security Partnership (SSP) initiative.

ILEA Program: Funds will continue to support the work of the established ILEAs in Bangkok, Budapest, Gaborone, Roswell, San Salvador and the newest ILEA in Lima. They provide relevant, timely, and quality training to counter transnational criminal activities such as terrorism, financial crimes, organized crime, corruption, illegal narcotics, trafficking in persons and other emerging international criminal trends.

Global Alumni Network (IGN): Funds will continue to support the IGN, which includes worldwide implementation of the ILEA student database and virtual workshops. The IGN will enhance cooperation in transnational investigations with their counterparts and information sharing with U.S. counterparts.

The SSP initiative is a multi-year, multi-agency initiative to address a wide array of existing threats to U.S. national security posed by terrorist organizations. SSP will forge strategic partnerships for confronting common global extremist threats by strengthening law enforcement efforts, creating an infrastructure for information-sharing and regional/cross-border coordination, and by developing bilateral, regional, and global partnerships. The SSP also supports regional training efforts in West Africa.

Regional Training in West Africa (RTWA): Funds will continue to support RTWA which will deliver basic and advanced law enforcement skills needed to address transnational crime and terrorism. INL, in cooperation with other U.S. Government agencies, will continue training activities that reflect the needs of high-threat countries.

Program Overview

The International Organizations account supports the counternarcotics and anti-crime efforts of the following multilateral organizations: the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), and the Organization of American States’ (OAS) Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD). UNODC, INCB, and CICAD are issue-specific international organizations that leverage U.S. funding with those of other donors to conduct capacity-building programs and treaty implementation activities that directly support U.S. Government counter-drug and anti-crime objectives. Their work is particularly important in cases where foreign governments require a multilateral umbrella in order to accept outside assistance or where political sensitivities by either recipients or donors complicate bilateral assistance.

Program Goals and Objectives

The International Organizations account supports the INL’s FY 2012 Bureau Strategic and Resource Plan goals of Transnational Crime and Counternarcotics, the FY 2012 Mission Strategic and Resource Plan for the U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna, and the National Drug Control Strategy. It is also a crucial component of the Administration’s effort to increase engagement with multilateral organizations.

Objective 1: Promote implementation and practical application of the three UN drug control conventions; the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its Protocols; and the legal instruments against terrorism. (As previously mentioned, all are based on U.S. law and support U.S. policy objectives.)

Objective 2: Enhance implementation of precursor chemical controls required under the conventions to block the production of cocaine, heroin and amphetamine-type stimulants, including methamphetamine.

Objective 3: Strengthen counternarcotics capacity, particularly by countries in the Western Hemisphere.

FY 2012 Program

UNODC:

Implementation of UN anti-crime and counter-drug treaties: Funds will be used to expand UNODC technical assistance and capacity building efforts to promote treaty implementation, particularly in the area of mutual legal assistance and extradition. Funds will also support the efforts of the UNODC’s Terrorism Prevention Branch (TPB) to promote international cooperation in criminal matters. Since its inception in 2003, the TPB has assisted over 170 states in ratifying and implementing the legal instruments, trained over 10,000 officials on their application and held over 98 regional and sub-regional workshops. As a result, the TPB has contributed to 548 new treaty ratifications.

Precursor Chemical Control: Funds will be used to continue support for International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) activities, including its global database and early warning online system to prevent the diversion of precursor chemicals used to manufacture illegal drugs, including methamphetamine. INCB’s database is also essential to the success of its precursor chemical control operations, which result in real-time cooperation among governments to track suspicious chemical shipments. The central role of the database and the online system is reflected in the ever increasing number of transactions reporting through the system. With more than 11,000 transactions, usage of these systems has almost doubled.

Santo Domingo Partnership Monitoring Mechanism: Funds will support UNODC’s project to promote regional cooperation and increase capacity-building efforts to combat the transit of drugs through Caribbean States. This effort is based on a similar, well regarded UNODC-initiated cooperation mechanism, known as the Paris Pact, to stem the flow of Afghan heroin.

General Purpose and Independent Evaluation Unit: UNODC requires funding to support its field office infrastructure necessary to implement U.S.-funded projects, as well as to support the monitoring and evaluation of its activities. Such projects strengthen criminal justice infrastructure through upgrading essential legislation, provide justice system training, improve judicial cooperation, and provide on-site operational support to law enforcement, prosecution and judicial services. UNODC continues to develop and strengthen its analytical and research efforts to support the projects and programs in this area. These programs also serve as the backdrop for data collection efforts and the development of the five year strategy to be approved by Member States. The next such strategy will come on line in 2012.

CICAD:

Multilateral Evaluation Mechanism: Funds will support this peer review system and the activities that stem from its recommendations on ways in which governments need to strengthen their anti-drug efforts.

Money Laundering Controls, Counternarcotics Institution Building, Supply Reduction and Demand Reduction: Funding to CICAD supports a wide range of multilateral initiatives in all phases of narcotics control. The United States particularly supports drug control training undertakings to achieve objectives established in the Anti-Drug Strategy for the Hemisphere. Most of these programs stress the importance of multilateral cooperation and information sharing to build a unified approach among OAS/CICAD member states.

Program Overview

The International Police Peacekeeping Operations Support (IPPOS) program is an important initiative to build the capacity of police contributing countries (PCCs) to deploy highly trained and well-equipped police to peacekeeping and stabilization missions. Recognizing that police in peace operations support critical rule of law development and local security goals, the IPPOS program will help enhance the operational effectiveness of police peacekeepers through training, equipment, and capacity building support, as well as assist the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations (UNDPKO) with the coordination, policy, and projects in support of improved Security Council mandate implementation in international policing in peacekeeping. IPPOS also will work with regional training centers and be prepared to support the deployment of police peacekeepers to new missions.

Program Goals and Objectives

Objective 1: Increase the capacity of partner police contributors to deploy well-trained and qualified police to peace and stabilization missions.

Objective 2: Assist UNDPKO to strengthen its policies to improve international policing in peacekeeping missions and to develop the tools to implement these policies.

Objective 3: Support existing regional training centers through coordination and contributions.

Objective 4: Support deployment of peacekeepers to new missions or emerging crises.

FY 2012 Program

Stabilization Operations and Security Sector Reform

Partnership with Targeted Police Contributors to Build FPU and IPO Capacity: A critical precursor to ensuring the safety of civilians in peacekeeping missions is the deployment of qualified police peacekeepers, both individual police officers (IPO) and formed police units (FPUs). Funds will bolster the operational capacity of FPUs and IPOs in mission through training of trainers, pre-deployment training, equipment, and other capacity building assistance.

Support for UNDPKO Initiatives: Funds will assist UNDPKO to develop policies and training modules for specific skill sets to get people with the right skills into mission. Additionally, funds will provide training to PCCs on the new UN training modules and policies, support the development and maintenance of a database of trained police peacekeepers and their skill-sets, hire an advisor to help facilitate the coordination with the UN and provide oversight of various programs and activities, and fund specific project(s) by UNDPKO in support of peacekeepers.

Support to Regional Training for Police Peacekeeping: Sending mobile training teams is only one of a few approaches to addressing the pre-deployment training needs for police peacekeepers. INL will work with and leverage existing regional training centers.

Support to New Peacekeeping Missions/Emerging Crises: There will be a need to rapidly establish new missions or enhance existing missions to provide public order and safety. With FY 2012 funds, INL will be better prepared to respond to the emerging crises and aid a new peacekeeping mission for a limited time by supporting the deployment of police peacekeepers.

Program Overview

The Interregional Aviation Support (IAS) budget provides coordinated core-level services necessary to operate the Air Wing’s fleet of over 130 fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft supporting INL’s aviation activities worldwide. This base of support is essential for sustaining logistical systems and depot-level maintenance and the safe and professional operational employment of INL air assets. Centrally-administered oversight includes: setting, implementing and monitoring uniform safety and training standards consistent with aviation industry practices; a logistics support system for acquiring, storing and shipping critical aviation parts and components worldwide; fleet-wide maintenance management; management of the Critical Flight Safety Program; and administration of the aviation support contract. INL aircraft are employed in Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan and are also available, as needed, to support other temporary deployment locations. This budget is augmented with funding from various country programs to support specific, dynamic local Embassy requirements.

Program Goals and Objectives

By providing core-level aviation fleet-wide support services projected from Patrick AFB and specific in-country aviation support, the IAS program makes it possible for individual country programs to be successful in their overarching objectives and mission. The IAS program provides safe, professionally operated and maintained aircraft that support eradication, interdiction, surveillance, and reconnaissance efforts within the counternarcotics area of the “Peace and Security” objective. Aircraft also provide other elements of support such as basic transportation of personnel and cargo, search and rescue, medical evacuation, and security that support overall “Peace and Security” and “Governing Justly and Democratically” objectives.

Objective 1: Safely and professionally execute aviation missions in support of individual country program objectives.

Objective 2: Provide and maintain fleet-wide systems, standards, and procedures that ensure quality aircraft maintenance and airworthiness, worldwide logistics support, safety, and operational effectiveness.

Objective 3: Train and professionalize host government aviation units to develop institutional capability to assume increased responsibility for counternarcotics operations in their respective countries.

FY 2012 Program

In FY 2012, the Interregional Aviation Support budget will continue to provide core-level services necessary to operate a fleet of over 130 fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. The IAS program will: continue to provide substantial aerial eradication and Colombian Army aviation support in Colombia while continuing the transition of responsibility and equipment to the host government; continue to provide logistical and technical support and training to successful, mature aviation programs in Peru and Bolivia; provide critical aviation support to counternarcotics, administration of justice, and police efforts in Afghanistan, and border security efforts in Pakistan; and support a six helicopter air interdiction program in Guatemala directed against drug trafficking in the transit zone.

Program Overview

The Critical Flight Safety Program (CFSP) is a multi-year program to modernize the INL air fleet and then provide ongoing life cycle fleet management (life cycle analysis, safety upgrades and programmed depot-level maintenance). The program was established to address the declining condition of aged aircraft (primarily former military aircraft for which there was no commercial or military support available) in order to ensure safety and airworthiness, extend service life, and maximize reliability and availability of aircraft to perform essential missions.

Program Goals and Objectives

By providing depot-level maintenance, extending the service life of aircraft, upgrading aircraft to commercially supportable configurations, and ensuring the long term availability of safe, reliable aircraft, the Critical Flight Safety Program makes it possible for individual country programs to continue to be successful in their overarching objectives and missions. Through the Critical Flight Safety Program, airworthy and maintainable aircraft will continue to be available to support eradication, interdiction, surveillance, and reconnaissance efforts within the counternarcotics area of the “Peace and Security” objective. Aircraft also provide other elements of support such as basic transportation of personnel and cargo, search and rescue, medical evacuation, and security that support overall “Peace and Security” and “Governing Justly and Democratically” objectives.

Objective 1: Ensure the structural integrity and airworthiness of all aircraft operated by the Air Wing.

Objective 2: Guarantee that Air Wing aircraft are maintainable, commercially supportable, and reliable to support country programs.

FY 2012 Program

Funds will modernize the air fleet through fleet management techniques (life cycle analysis, safety upgrades, and programmed depot level maintenance) that are similar to those used by the Department of Defense and commercial airlines.

The program is designed to ensure safety, structural integrity, and functionality of the aircraft deployed and operated to support the various country counternarcotics aviation programs.

Funds will increase safety for aircrews and personnel flying in these aircraft, extend the service life of the aircraft, reduce excessively high costs for maintenance, components and parts, increase operational readiness rates, sustain mission success, and implement continuous long-term programmed depot maintenance cycles for the aircraft fleet.

Funds will provide ongoing life cycle fleet management with the induction of nine rotary-wing and one fixed-wing aircraft for depot maintenance; procurement of one attrition helicopter; and continuation of the Aircraft/Aircrew Safety upgrade program.

Program Overview

INL develops strategies and programs to achieve international counternarcotics and criminal justice foreign-policy objectives. INL maintains a cadre of both domestic and overseas program and technical experts to carry out a wide range of initiatives. Washington personnel functions include, but are not limited to: international narcotics control and law enforcement policy formulation and implementation; coordination of policies and programs with other USG agencies and with other governments and international organizations; budget and financial management activities; program administration and analysis including development, implementation, oversight and evaluation of overseas programs; contract, procurement and information systems support; field assistance visits to Embassy Narcotics Affairs Sections and Law Enforcement Sections to review, analyze and make recommendations on programs, funds control and procurement; sponsoring regional policy and program management conferences and seminars; and, developing and providing training programs both domestically and overseas for INL personnel.

FY 2012 Program

The Program Development and Support (PD&S) account funds the domestic administrative operating costs associated with the Washington-based INL staff. The majority of the PD&S budget is used for salaries and benefits of U.S. Direct Hire (USDH) employees, personal services contracts, rehired annuitants and reimbursable support personnel.

Field travel for personnel based in Washington is also funded from the PD&S account. This is an essential component of the bureau’s program, needed for program development, implementation, oversight and review, as well as for the advancement of international counternarcotics and criminal justice foreign policy objectives. PD&S funds are utilized to maintain a reliable and secure information resource management system and operating infrastructure to enable bureau employees to pursue policy objectives and complete work requirements effectively and efficiently. In addition, funding for the following expenses ensure an adequate level of administrative support to allow the bureau to function effectively: office equipment purchases and rentals, telephone services, printing and reproduction, miscellaneous contractual services (Information Management non-personal services contractor personnel, INL office renovation expenses, etc.), materials, supplies, furniture, furnishings and equipment.

Funds will provide for additional staffing and associated costs needed to properly oversee the expanded requirements associated with INL’s growth.
