The charts show each agency’s net cost—gross costs less earned revenue, invested in each joint Strategic Goal. These goals, or objectives, are consistent with the State-USAID Strategic Planning Framework. Executive Direction and Operating Unit Management are costs that cannot be directly traced or reasonably allocated to strategic goals; however, these costs are captured and included in the total net cost of operations.
Department of State: Revenues earned through providing goods or services to the public or to another Government entity increased 7 percent or $429 million from FY 2009; gross costs rose by $196 million for the same period resulting in a net cost decrease of $233 million or 1 percent. Overall, most goals saw an increase in total costs as a result of cost increases in the Diplomatic and Consular, International Organizations and Diplomatic Security Programs. These cost increases were offset by cost decreases in the Investing in People Goal for the Global Health and Child Survival Fund and in Executive Direction and Other Costs Not Assigned for a lower actuarial loss amount on pension assumption changes in the Foreign Service Retirement and Disability Fund. The overall increase in revenue of $429 million is primarily due to increases in passport and visa fees and surcharges, and earned reimbursable revenue from other Government entities.
USAID: The Statement of Net Cost shows the amounts spent on meeting the Agency’s six Objectives. These Objectives are consistent with the State-USAID Strategic Planning Framework. The Investing in People and Economic Growth Objectives are the largest investments at 27 percent and 26 percent, respectively. The spending levels decreased slightly due to the timing of the receipt of appropriations and budget changes to align with the normal course of USAID’s operations. The 6 percent decrease in net cost of operations is a result of net cost decreases in the Economic Growth and in the Investing in People Objectives that were partially offset by increases in other program objectives. Complete details are provided in the AFR on page 25. The table below documents the net cost of operations by Strategic Goal.
