The Office of Inspector General’s (OIG’s) mission is to promote economy, efficiency and effectiveness and to detect and
prevent waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement in the programs and operations of the Department of Commerce. OIG’s
work is conducted primarily through audits, inspections and
investigations. OIG concentrates on programs and operations
that have the greatest potential for inadvertent or deliberate
fraud and the related recovery of funds, while at the same
time precluding unnecessary outlays and improving management across the agency. Performance measures indicate the
quality of audits, inspections, and investigations conducted
within the reporting period, as well as the dollar value of
financial benefits identified by OIG.

This fund will cover the Commerce Department’s expenses
associated with renovating and modernizing the Herbert C.
Hoover Building. The renovation of the Department’s 73-year
old headquarters by the General Services Administration
(GSA) will extend the building’s useful life by upgrading infrastructure and removing safety hazards, improving space utilization and energy efficiency, and incorporating security upgrades. GSA and Commerce are both responsible for costs
related to the project, and funding in both agencies should
occur simultaneously so that design, moves, and renovations
can be coordinated.

This fund finances, on a reimbursable basis, Departmentwide administrative functions that are more efficiently and
economically performed on a centralized basis, including
human resources, financial, procurement and security services.

Regional strategies and a focus on demonstrating performance are essential components of effective federal economic
development policy. To implement the goals and objectives
of the Strengthening America’s Communities Initiative
(SACI), the Economic Development Administration (EDA) will
work in partnership with the Department of Housing and
Urban Development to establish a proactive regional economic
framework, thus empowering America’s communities to
achieve and maintain global competitiveness. This initiative
consolidates a number of duplicative economic and community
development programs, which will allow communities to avoid
having to navigate a confusing maze of Federal programs
to receive funding and will result in a streamlined and more
effective Federal grant-making process.
Regional development account.—To accomplish the competitive grant component of SACI, EDA will concentrate its resources in a new program activity, the Regional Development
Account. EDA’s goal will be to build regional capacity to adapt
to and create new technologies and opportunities through innovation, entrepreneurship and private sector leverage. EDA
will also fund University Centers through this account as
one element of a region’s strategy for global competitiveness.
Planning grants.—EDA will continue to fund its network
of Economic Development Districts and Tribal organizations
to design and implement effective economic development policies and strategies that integrate with broader regional strategies.
Trade adjustment assistance.—EDA’s Trade Adjustment Assistance investments provide technical assistance through a
nationwide system of Trade Adjustment Assistance Centers
that help firms and industries injured by imports to develop
economic recovery strategies.
Performance measures.—In 2007, EDA will track private
investment and jobs generated by its investments and will
develop a new goal and associated measures to track the
results of its assistance in supporting innovation-led regional
development. Long-term outcome results will continue to be
reported by investment recipients over a period of nine years
at three year intervals. In 2007, EDA will track that its
trade adjustment assistance programs are providing marketbased and value-added services.

The activities of this appropriation provide for the collection, compilation, and publication of a broad range of current
economic, demographic, and social statistics.
Current economic statistics.—The business statistics program provides current information on sales and related measures of retail and wholesale trade and selected service industries. Construction statistics are provided on significant construction activity, while manufacturing statistics survey key
industrial commodities and manufacturing activities, providing current statistics on the quantity and value of industrial output.
General economic statistics provide a Business Register of
all U.S. business firms and their establishments, uniform
classification data based on the North American Industry
Classification System (NAICS), annual county business data,
corporate financial data, e-commerce estimates, and an economic research program. The Longitudinal Employer/Household Dynamics program integrates state administrative data
and Census Bureau data to facilitate more informed decisionmaking by businesses and state and local governments.
Foreign trade statistics provide for publication of monthly,
cumulative, and annual reports on imports and exports, which
covers the Census Bureau responsibilities under the Trade
Act of 1974.
Government statistics provide comprehensive information
on state and local governments. This includes quarterly revenue data on the national level by type of tax and governmental level and provides information on financial assistance
programs of the Federal Government.
Current demographic statistics.—Household surveys provide
information on the social and economic characteristics of the
population. The Census Bureau compiles statistics on the Nation’s housing inventory and provides national and regional
estimates of housing vacancy rates. The Bureau also provides
current reports and future projections on the geographic and
demographic characteristics of the U.S. population. International statistics provide estimates of demographic and economic characteristics for various countries.
Survey development and data services.—The Statistical Abstract of the United States summarizes Government and private statistics of the industrial, social, political, and economic
activities of the United States. This function also supports
general research on survey methods and techniques to improve the efficiency, accuracy, and timeliness of statistical
programs.
Survey of Program Dynamics.—Mandatory appropriations
provided by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 as extended by the 108th Congress to
evaluate the impact of welfare reform mandated by the Act
through the Survey of Income and Program Participation.
This funding, along with the requested discretionary funding,
will allow the Bureau to disseminate data collected in 2006

and design a new data collection system on income and
wealth dynamics.
State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).—
Mandatory approprations provided by the Medicare, Medicaid,
and State Children’s Health Insurance Program Balanced
Budget Refinement Act of 1999 support data collection by
Current Population Survey (CPS) on the number of low-income children who do not have health insurance coverage.
Data from this enhanced survey are used in the formula
to allocate funds to States under the SCHIP program.
Performance measures.—A detailed presentation of performance measures and targets is found in the Department’s 2007
Budget Submission. A 2005 PART assessment of Current Economic Statistics rated the program Moderately Effective, finding that while the program fulfills the critical need for comprehensive economic data, it has inadequate coverage of the
service sector. To correct this weakness, the Bureau is working to improve the measurement of the service sector, increase
electronic reporting, and systematically review the mix of surveys within the program to match the sectors that make
up the U.S. economy.

This appropriation funds legislatively mandated periodic
economic and demographic censuses and other authorized activities.
Economic statistics programs:
Economic Census.—The economic census provides data on
manufacturing, mining, retail and wholesale trade service,

construction and transportation industries. The census is
taken every fifth year, covering calendar years ending in two
and seven. 2007 is the third year in the 2007 Economic Census cycle. The focus of activity for 2007 is the development
of the collection instruments and processing systems to be
used in the 2007 Economic Census. Specific activities include
outreach with the top 500 companies about the census, development and creation of electronic tools and the Business Help
Site to service respondent needs, execution of a classification
mailing in preparation of the census mail list, creation of
the mail frame through the processing of 100+ million administrative records, printing of millions of report forms, and
development of the processing systems to be used in the 2007
Economic Census.
Census of Governments.—The census of governments is
taken every fifth year for calendar years ending in two and
seven. The focus for 2007 is on determining the universe
of governments for data collection and preparing for most
data collection activities that occur in 2008.
Demographic statistics programs:
Intercensal demographic estimates.—In years between decennial censuses, this program develops annual estimates of
the population for the Nation, states, metropolitan areas,
counties and functioning governmental units. These data are
used for a variety of purposes including the allocation of nearly $200 billion in Federal funds, as controls for a variety
of federally sponsored surveys, as denominators for vital statistics and other health and economic indicators, and for a
variety of Federal, State, and private program planning
needs. In 2007, the program will continue to improve its
population estimates for states and large counties, which are
used by the American Community Survey.
Decennial Census.—The Census Bureau is in the process
of preparing for the next decennial census.
The plan for the 2010 Decennial Census program features
three key components that focus on reducing operational risk,
improving accuracy, providing more relevant data, and containing cost. The components are: (1) A multi-year planning,
development, and testing process that will allow the Census
Bureau to fully develop a reengineered census designed to
collect the basic (‘‘short form’’) data needed to fulfill constitutional and legal mandates; (2) Continuation of the fully implemented American Community Survey (ACS) to collect and
publish the more detailed (‘‘long form’’) data on an annual
basis, instead of only once a decade; and (3) Enhancing the
Census Bureau’s geographic database, referred to as MAF/
TIGER (Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing) through the use of Global
Positioning System (GPS) capability to update and improve
street location information and bring it into alignment with
GPS coordinates. In 2007, the Census Bureau will continue
to implement all three components to support the re-engineered 2010 Census.
Demographic surveys sample redesign.—This program provides for the sample selection of monthly, quarterly and annual household surveys to conform to the redistribution of
the population measured in the decennial census. This is done
after each decennial census in order to select accurate samples for the major household surveys throughout the decade.
Geographic support.—This activity’s goal is to determine
the correct location of every residential and business establishment address in the U.S. and its territories. The activity’s
major components include the TIGER data base, and the
MAF/TIGER provides maps and geographic information for
data tabulation; MAF provides the geographically-assigned
address list for the Nation. Together, they provide essential
information and products critical for conducting many of the
Census Bureau’s programs.

Data processing systems.—This activity provides for the
management of hardware and software needed for the Census
Bureau’s general purpose computing facilities.
Performance measures.—A detailed presentation of performance measures and targets is found in the Department’s 2007
Budget Submission. A 2003 PART assessment of the Decennial Census found the program to be Moderately Effective
in carrying out its mission. While accuracy was improved
in the 2000 Census, life-cycle costs have risen significantly
over time. The re-engineered 2010 Census has the potential
to reduce cost growth, through the use of a short-form only
census, a second mailing to non-response households and the
use of hand-held portable computers for data collection. A
2004 PART assessment of the Economic Census rated the
program Effective; the Bureau is working to increase the electronic response rate and conduct additional independent evaluations of the Economic Census.

Bureau of Economic Analysis.—BEA’s mission is to promote
the understanding of the U.S. economy by providing the most
timely, relevant and accurate economic accounts data in an
objective and cost-effective manner. BEA’s economic statistics
are among the Nation’s most closely watched and provide
a comprehensive picture of the U.S. economy. These statistics
are key ingredients in decisions affecting interest and exchange rates, tax and budget projections, business investment
plans, and the allocation of over $200 billion in federal funds,
including programs such as Medicaid and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), among others. BEA prepares
national, regional, industry and international accounts that
present essential information on such issues as economic
growth, regional economic development, inter-industry relationships and the Nation’s position in the world economy.
National economic accounts.—BEA’s national economic statistics provide a comprehensive view of U.S. production, consumption, investment, exports and imports, and income and
saving. These statistics are best known by summary measures
such as gross domestic product (GDP), corporate profits, personal income and spending, and personal savings.
International economic accounts.—The international transactions accounts provide information on trade in goods and
services (including the balance of payments and the balance
of trade), investment income, and government and private
financial flows. In addition, the accounts measure the value
of U.S. international assets and liabilities and direct investment by multinational companies. BEA’s data on direct investment—the most detailed data set on the operations of
multinational companies available—are used to assess the
role these companies play in the global economy.
Regional economic accounts.—The regional accounts provide
data on total and per capita personal income by region, State,
metropolitan area, and county, and on gross state product.
These statistics are essential for state government revenue
forecasting, the allocation of Federal funds to the states, and
private sector investment decisions.
Industry economic accounts.—The industry economic accounts, presented both in an input-output framework and as
annual output by each industry, provide a detailed view of
the interrelationships between U.S. producers and users and
the contribution to production across industries. These accounts are used extensively by policymakers and businesses
to understand industry interactions, productivity trends, and
the changing structure of the U.S. economy.
Implementing BEA’s strategic plan.—BEA is working to improve statistical measures and close gaps in data coverage
by developing such improvements as more accurate measures
of services, profits, compensation, new quality-adjusted prices,
new measures of international trade and finance, and accelerated release of regional and international trade estimates.
Economics and Statistics Administration (ESA) Policy support.—The ESA headquarters conducts economic research and
policy analysis directly in support of the Secretary of Commerce. ESA monitors and interprets economic developments
and domestic fiscal and monetary policies, analyzes economic
conditions and policy initiatives of major trading partners,
and provides oversight of the Census Bureau and the BEA.
ESA Reimbursable program.—Provides economic and statistical data and analyses to other Federal agencies, individuals,
and firms requesting such information.
Performance measures.—For 2007, BEA will seek to maintain delivery of all data releases on schedule, maintain an
average rating in customer satisfaction greater than a 4.0
(on a 5-point scale), and achieve a rating in the percentage
of GDP estimates correct above 85 percent. BEA was rated
Effective in its PART assessment and was ranked among
the highest of all federal programs reviewed.

The Economic and Statistics Administration operates STATUSA, a revolving fund activity that provides the public with
access to key business, economic, and international trade information. STAT-USA’s mission is to compile and disseminate
world-class business, economic, and government information
products that American businesses and the public can use
to make intelligent and informed decisions. It accomplishes
this goal through four primary products and services: (1)
STAT-USA/Internet, (2) USA Trade Online, (3) EuroTrade
Online and (4) syndication.
STAT-USA has three ongoing objectives pursuant to the
accomplishment of its mission: (1) Identify new markets for
products and services to increase the customer base; (2) Increase customer involvement to improve customer satisfaction;
and (3) Increase supplier involvement. User fees from the
public represent STAT-USA’s sole source of income.
A more detailed presentation of STAT-USA objectives is
found in the Department’s 2007 Budget Submission.

The mission of the International Trade Administration
(ITA) is to improve U.S. prosperity by strengthening the competitiveness of U.S. industry, promoting trade and investment, and ensuring fair trade and compliance with trade laws
and agreements. ITA pursues this mission through its leadership role in the Government-wide Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee, through reimbursable programs with program partners and through the major activities of its five
programs as follows:
Manufacturing and services.—This program focuses on both
the domestic and international aspects of U.S. industrial competitiveness by working with U.S. industries to evaluate the
needs of the U.S. manufacturing and service sectors, including
their interests in trade policy setting; and participating, as
appropriate, with ITA trade policy and negotiation advancement initiatives.
Market access and compliance (MAC).—MAC develops strategies to overcome market access obstacles faced by U.S. businesses by monitoring foreign country compliance with multilateral and bilateral trade-related agreements and identifying
compliance and other market access obstacles. MAC works
with other Government agencies to address barriers, and to
ensure that U.S. firms know how to use market opening
agreements and to find other opportunities in traditional and
emerging markets. It develops both current and long-term
market access strategies, including information needed to conduct trade negotiations to open markets. MAC also provides
support for the operation of the established Free Trade Agreement Secretariats.
Import administration.—This program investigates antidumping and countervailing duty cases to ensure compliance
with applicable U.S. statutes and administers certain other
statutory programs relating to imports and foreign trade
zones.
Trade promotion and the U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service.—The Commercial Service conducts trade promotion programs intended to broaden and deepen the base of U.S. exports, particularly of small and medium-sized firms; provides
American companies with reliable advice on the range of public and private assistance available and knowledgeable support for all other Federal trade promotion services; offers
export assistance through information, referral and followup services through its integrated global field network; ensures adequate support for compliance and leads interagency
advocacy efforts for major overseas projects, including early
involvement in project development and assistance to resolve
post-export transaction problems.
Administration and executive direction.—These programs
provide policy leadership, information technology (IT) support
and administration services for all of ITA. Executive Direction
includes the Office of the Under Secretary for International
Trade and subordinate offices covering Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs, Public Affairs, Office of the Chief Information Officer, and the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee staff.
Reimbursable program.—This program includes receipts for
services rendered to other Federal agencies and receipts reSfmt 3616

ceived on a cost recovery basis from private entities for trade
events and export information services.
2007 Priorities.—Funding requested for ITA in 2007 will
be used to implement the following ITA priorities: ensuring
that China and other key nations honor their WTO commitments and that market access for American trade and investment in China and other key economies is expanded; ensuring
compliance and enforcement of all trade agreements, with
special emphasis on intellectual property rights protections;
strengthening Federal trade promotion programs; implementing reforms recommended by the 2004 report ‘‘Manufacturing in America’’; and supporting the economic component
of the Security and Prosperity Partnership with Canada and
Mexico.
Performance measures.—Activities support the Department
of Commerce’s strategic goal of providing the information and
tools to maximize U.S. competitiveness. A more detailed presentation of the goals, performance measures, and targets is
found in the Department’s 2007 Budget Submission.

The mission of the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS)
is to advance U.S. national security, foreign policy and economic interests. BIS’s activities include regulating the export
of sensitive goods and technologies in an effective and efficient
manner; enforcing export control, antiboycott, and public safety laws; cooperating with and assisting other countries on
export control and strategic trade issues; assisting U.S. industry to comply with international arms control agreements;
and monitoring the viability of the U.S. defense industrial
base.
Export administration.—The Export Administration program administers U.S. export control laws of dual-use items,
weapons of mass destruction, and conventional arms, including removal of outdated export controls; develops and implements policies that ensure a strong and technologically superior defense industrial base; and oversees U.S. business community compliance with the Chemical Weapons Convention.
Export enforcement.—The Export Enforcement program detects and prevents the illegal export of controlled goods and
technology; investigates and helps sanction violators of U.S.
export control, anti-terrorist and public safety laws and regulations; educates the business community to help prevent violations; and administers Export Administration Act provisions
restricting participation in foreign boycotts.
Management and policy coordination.—The Management
and Policy Coordination program develops, analyzes, and coordinates policy initiatives within BIS and on an interagency
basis.
2007 Priorities.—Funding requested for BIS in 2007 will
support core activities, including: strengthening and streamlining the dual-use export control system, working to
strengthen multilateral export control regimes, expanding
strategic trade with India and China in ways that strengthen
US security, improving targeting of investigative resources,
promoting adoption of effective export control regimes and
best practices worldwide, and monitoring and supporting the
viability of the defense industrial base.
Performance Measures.—The measures cited below represent existing measures. BIS is currently in the process of
reviewing its mission statement, performance goals, measures
and targets to better reflect strategic aims.

MINORITY BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT AGENCY

The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) provides management and technical assistance services to minority business enterprises (MBEs). MBDA’s long-term mission
is to promote entrepreneurial parity and wealth creation for
the minority business community. MBDA supports a nationwide network of centers to provide business assistance, information and customer service to the rapidly expanding minority business population in the United States.
2007 Priorities.—In 2007, MBDA will continue to expand
its goal of increasing access to the marketplace and financing
for minority-owned businesses. MBDA will focus on assistance
to minority firms with rapid growth potential and the ability
to create jobs and that have an economic impact in geographic
areas with a high concentration of minorities. Specifically,
MBDA will continue to target its client base to firms with
$500,000 or more in annual revenues as well as firms with
rapid growth potential, but smaller annual revenues.
Performance Measures.—MBDA will strive to maximize access to capital and procurement contract opportunities for
MBEs to significantly increase gross receipts and job creation
within the minority business community. A more detailed
presentation of goals, performance measures, and targets may
be found in the Department’s 2007 Budget Submission.

The mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is to understand and predict changes
in the Earth’s environment and conserve and manage coastal
and marine resources to meet our Nation’s economic, social,
and environmental needs.
The 2007 President’s Budget supports investment in high
priority endeavors including: weather and severe storm prediction; climate change research; science to support fisheries
management; cooperative approaches to conservation of fish
habitat; and a more effective Coastal Zone Management Act
program.
NOAA executes activities to achieve its mission through
the following six line offices:
National Ocean Service (NOS).—NOS programs work to
promote safe navigation; assess the health of coastal and marine resources and respond to natural- and human-induced
threats; and preserve the coastal ocean environment.
National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).—NMFS programs provide for the stewardship of the Nation’s living marine resources including fish stocks, marine mammals, and
endangered species and their habitats within the United
States Exclusive Economic Zone.
Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR).—OAR
programs provide environmental research and technology
needed to improve NOAA weather and air quality warnings
and forecasts, climate predictions, and marine services. To
accomplish these goals, OAR supports a network of scientists
in its Federal research laboratories, universities, and cooperative institutes and partnership programs.
National Weather Service (NWS).—NWS programs provide
timely and accurate meteorological, hydrologic, and oceanographic warnings and forecasts to ensure the safety of the
population, mitigate property losses, and improve the economic productivity of the Nation. NWS is also responsible
for issuing operational climate forecasts for the United States,
which are used by agriculture and other industries.
National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information
Service (NESDIS).—NESDIS programs operate environmental

polar-orbiting and geostationary satellites and collect and archive global environmental data and information for distribution to private and public sector users.
Program support.—These programs provide management
and administrative support for NOAA, including acquisition
and grants, budget, accounting, and human resources. The
Office of Marine and Aviation Operations (OMAO) provides
aircraft and marine data acquisition, fleet repair and maintenance, planning of future fleet modernization, and technical
and management support for NOAA-wide activities through
the NOAA Commissioned Corps.
Foreign Fishing Observer Fund.—This fund is financed
through collections from foreign vessel owners who fish within
the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone. Collections to the Fund
can be made available through annual appropriations for use
by the Secretary of Commerce to pay the salaries of observers
and program support personnel, the costs of data management, and analysis of the observer program. The observers
collect scientific information on the foreign catch and monitor
compliance with provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery
Conservation and Management Act. No new appropriations
are proposed for this account as unobligated balances are
sufficient to provide observer coverage aboard foreign vessels
fishing within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone.
Performance measures.—A more detailed listing of goals,
performance measures, and targets is found in the Department’s 2007 Budget Submission.
Goal: Serve society’s needs for weather and water information.

This account funds State, Tribal and local conservation initiatives to help recover Pacific salmon populations. State and
local recipients of this funding will provide matching contributions of at least thirty-three percent of Federal funds. In
addition, funds will be available to Tribes that do not require
matching dollars. A 2002 Program Assessment Rating Tool
Analysis found that the program was not able to target funding based on the recovery needs of salmon populations. The
language proposed here states that the Secretary will establish terms and conditions for the effective use of the funds
to help address this concern.

This account includes amounts necessary to finance the
cost of Tricare retirement health care benefits accrued by
the active duty members of the NOAA Commissioned Corps.
The Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act
for 2005 (P.L. 108–375) provided permanent, indefinite appropriations to finance these costs for all uniformed service members. Previously the Operations, Research, and Facilities account was required to pay the accruing costs using annual
appropriations. As these costs are borne in support of NOAA’s
mission, they will be shown as part of the NOAA discretionary total. The 2007 appropriations requested in the Operations, Research, and Facilities account to fund the NOAA
Commissioned Corps exclude funding to make the health accrual payments. Total obligations on behalf of active NOAA
Commissioned Corps personnel include both the wages and
related amounts requested for appropriation and amounts
paid from the permanent, indefinite authority.

An amount equal to 30 percent of the gross receipts from
customs duties on imported fishery products is transferred
to the Department of Commerce annually from the Department of Agriculture. These funds support the Saltonstall-Kennedy grants program for fisheries research and development
projects to enhance the productivity and improve the sustainable yield of domestic marine fisheries resources. The remainder of the funds are transferred to offset the appropriation
requirements for fisheries research and management in the
Operations, Research, and Facilities account.

This program provides compensation to commercial fishermen for damages to or loss of fishing gear related to oil
and gas exploration, development, and production on the
Outer Continental Shelf. The fund is supported by assessments to holders of leases, permits, easements, and rights
of way in areas of the Outer Continental Shelf. No new funds
are proposed for this account in 2007; remaining unobligated
balances are sufficient to carry out this program for the year.

This fund was established by Title IV of P.L. 105–83. Twenty percent of the interest earned from this fund is made
available to the Department of Commerce. Funds are to be
used by Federal, State, private or foreign organizations or
individuals to conduct research activities on or relating to
the fisheries or marine ecosystems in the North Pacific Ocean,
Bering Sea, and Arctic Ocean. Research priorities and grant
requests are reviewed and approved by the North Pacific Research Board with emphasis placed on cooperative research
efforts designed to address pressing fishery management or
marine ecosystem information needs.

Trademark program.—The Trademark program provides for
the protection of trademarks through Federal registration.
The activities under this program include the examination
of trademark applications to determine whether the statutory
criteria for the Federal registration of a trade or service mark
are met. The Office issues notices of allowance and certificates
of registration based on a trademark attorney’s determination.
The 2007 program level provides resources to fund increased
staffing levels, expansion of the trademark work at home
program, and expansion of E-government to achieve a fully
electronic workflow in 2007 that will further improve timeliness and productivity.
Key trademark program performance measures follow.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) administers the patent and trademark laws, which provide protection to inventors and businesses for their inventions and
corporate and product identifications. These protections encourage innovation and scientific and technical advancement
of American industry. PTO also provides technical advice and
information to other government agencies on intellectual property matters and the trade-related aspects of intellectual
property rights, and assists governments of other countries
in establishing regulatory and enforcement mechanisms to
meet their international obligations relating to the protection
of intellectual property. PTO is funded through fees that are
paid for patent and trademarks; the 2007 Budget requests
a program level of $1,843 million for the agency and full
access for the agency to its fee collections. Legislation restrucVerDate Aug 31 2005

turing and increasing patent and trademark fees was enacted
for 2005 and 2006, and the Budget requests an extension
of these provisions through 2007. The Administration also
plans to submit a legislative proposal to permanently extend
these changes beyond 2007.
Patent program.—The Patent program grants exclusive
rights, for limited times, to inventors for their discoveries.
The activities under this program include all functions in
the patent application processing pipeline, including the initial administrative examination of patent applications, the
processing of patent applications filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty, the formal examination of patent applications to determine the patentability of a claimed invention,
the post-examination processing and printing of allowed patents, the review for quality, and the quasi-judicial review
in appeal and interference proceedings. Resources requested
in 2007 will be used to fund additional patent examiner staff
workload; continue the implementation of E-Government to
more efficiently process patent applications; competitively
source the classification and reclassification functions currently performed by patent examiners; establish a new training program for new hires; implement retention incentives
to retain a highly qualified and productive workforce; increase
patent workforce telework participation through implementation of a patent hoteling program; and expand bilateral and
multilateral agreements to strengthen intellectual property
rights globally and reduce duplication of effort among international intellectual property offices.
Key patent program performance measures follow.

The mission of the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST) is to develop and promote measurement,
standards, and technology to enhance productivity, facilitate
trade, and improve the quality of life. To carry out its mission,
NIST has an intramural research program made up of laboratories and technical programs and national research facilities.
NIST also manages the Baldrige National Quality Program.
Laboratories and Technical Programs.—These programs develop and disseminate measurement techniques, reference
data and materials, test methods, standards, and other
infrastructural technologies and services required by U.S. industry. Eight technical subactivities within this program concentrate on measurements and standards work in the following areas: electronics and electrical engineering, manufacturing engineering, chemical science and technology, physics,
materials science and engineering, building and fire research,
computer science and applied mathematics, and standards
and technology services. These programs also include centrally managed activities that provide support to NIST programs, including research to build new capabilities necessary
to maintain state-of-the-art knowledge to address measurements and standards opportunities, a nationally competitive
postdoctoral research associates program, and computer and
business systems support.
National Research Facilities.—These include the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) and the Center for
Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST). As the Nation’s
premier neutron research user facility, the NCNR provides
an intense source of neutrons used to probe the molecular
and atomic structure and dynamics of a wide range of materials. The CNST leverages the unique capabilities of the NIST
Advanced Measurement Laboratory complex, providing stateof-the-art facilities for nanomanufacturing and nanometrology
where researchers from industry, universities and other Federal laboratories can collaborate in solving critical measurement and fabrication issues necessary to convert nano-discoveries into products.
Baldrige National Quality Program.—This program promotes U.S. competitiveness in business, health care, education, and non-profit organizations through performance excellence criteria and other information transfer, and management of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
2007 Priorities.—As part of the President’s 10-year American Competitiveness Initiative to significantly increase FedSfmt 3616

eral funding for physical science research, NIST will target
$467 million for key investments that promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness including: expansion of
the CNST to improve the ability to more cost-effectively manufacture products at a nano scale; expansion of the NCNR
to better characterize materials in high growth research
fields; research and standards work to address technological
barriers to hydrogen storage, distribution, and fuel cell fabrication; and research to improve the understanding of quantum information science that has the potential to dramatically
improve computer processing speeds and enable more secure
communications.
Performance.—NIST labs received an Effective rating on
a PART assessment conducted in 2003. External annual assessments of the quality, relevance, and performance of the
labs are also conducted which have also found the program
to be effective.

This account funds two extramural programs: the Hollings
Manufacturing Extension Partnership Program (MEP) and
the Advanced Technology Program (ATP). The goal of MEP,
a network of centers that provide business support and technical assistance services, is to improve the productivity and
competitiveness of small manufacturers. The centers are funded from matching Federal and State or local resources and
fees charged for services. MEP was rated Moderately Effective
under a PART assessment in 2002, is considered well-managed, and new centers are established through a competitive
process. However, the centers offer services that are also provided by private entities and only recover a third of their

costs through fees. The 2007 Budget reduces funding for the
program to $46 million.
The 2007 Budget proposes to terminate ATP, a grant program for businesses that was intended to develop new technologies for commercial use. Given the growth of venture
capital and other financing sources for high-tech projects,
there is little evidence of the need for this Federal program.
Recent Congressional treatment of ATP is also consistent with
this proposal—providing $136 million in 2005 with no funding
for new grants, and $79 million in 2006 to cover existing
grants and enable close-out.

Telecommunication sciences research.—NTIA develops improved spectrum measurement techniques to address the increasing use of broadband technologies, including digital signals, spread-spectrum, and frequency agile systems. Additionally, NTIA prepares and coordinates proposed domestic and
international telecommunications standards, develops and
demonstrates user-friendly ways to assess the performance
of industry and Government telecommunications networks,
evaluates future technologies that may facilitate competition
in the U.S. telecommunications industry, and promotes international trade opportunities for U.S. telecommunications
firms and improves the cost effectiveness of Government telecommunications use.
Activities under this account support Commerce’s strategic
goal of fostering science and technological leadership by protecting intellectual property, enhancing technical standards,
and advancing measurement science.
Performance measures.—A detailed presentation of performance measures and targets is found in the Department’s 2007
Budget submission. A 2005 PART assessment of NTIA’s activities found that performance was Adequate. While the program fulfills a unique role through management of the Federal Spectrum, and is important in advancing the President’s
Spectrum Policy Initiative, it faces challenges measuring performance outcomes.

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is the principal Executive Branch adviser
to the President on domestic and international telecommunications policy. Additionally, it manages the Federal Government’s use of the radio frequency spectrum and performs
extensive research in telecommunication sciences.
Domestic and international policies.—NTIA develops and
advocates policies to improve and expand domestic telecommunications services and markets. NTIA provides advice
to White House officials, coordinates with other Executive
Branch agencies, and participates in relevant Congressional
actions and interagency and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proceedings on a host of issues.
NTIA advocates the advancement of U.S. priorities in international telecommunications policy and regulatory areas.
NTIA will continue to encourage the liberalization of telecommunication regulations now taking hold across the globe
that create significant opportunities for U.S. interests and
enterprises, including emphasis on the international development of electronic commerce as an essential element of today’s
information society.
Spectrum management.—NTIA manages the Federal Government’s use of the radio frequency spectrum, both domestically and internationally. In coordination with the FCC and
with the advice of the Interdepartment Radio Advisory Committee (IRAC), NTIA supports the spectrum requirements of
the Federal Government, makes plans to satisfy the Government’s future spectrum needs, coordinates Federal spectrum
requirements in shared spectrum bands, and develops and
implements policy to use the spectrum effectively and efficiently. NTIA strives to identify and apply new spectrum
saving technologies and identify adjacent band effects for use
by designers of future communications. NTIA also works with
the Department of Homeland Security on matters involving
emergency communications and Federal Government continuity of operations planning for communications during
emergency conditions.

vision signals and provides funding for several programs from
these receipts. The Act specifies that recovered spectrum not
dedicated to public safety use will be auctioned by the Federal
Communications Commission in 2008 and identifies the distribution of revenue. Receipts exceeding amounts specified
for authorized programs will be returned to the general fund
of the Treasury. The Act also provides borrowing authority
to the Department of Commerce to commence specified programs prior to the availability of auction receipts. Amounts
borrowed from the Treasury will be returned without interest
upon the availability of auction revenue.
Digital-to-Analog Converter Box Program.— To assist consumers during the transition from analog to digital television,
coupons will be provided upon request, to a maximum of
two per household, to be used to offset the cost of digitalto-analog television converter boxes. Coupons may be requested between January 1, 2008, and March 31, 2009, and
will expire three months after issuance.
Public Safety Interoperable Communications.—Grants will
be provided in consultation with the Department of Homeland
Security to public safety agencies to assist efforts to make
their communications systems capable of sharing voice and
data signals on the radio spectrum. Public safety agencies
are required to provide, from non-Federal sources, not less
than twenty percent of the costs of acquiring and deploying
the interoperable communications systems funded under this
program.
New York City 9/11 Digital Transition.—Assistance will
be provided to the Metropolitan Television Alliance of New
York City for the design and deployment of a temporary digital television broadcast system until a permanent facility
atop the planned Freedom Tower is constructed.
Assistance to Low-Power Television Stations.—Eligible lowpower television stations may receive compensation toward
the cost of purchase of a digital-to-analog conversion device,
and may receive reimbursement to upgrade their television
signals from analog to digital format.
National Alert and Tsunami Warning Program.— A national alert system will be implemented upon availability of
auction receipts, using a variety of communications technologies, that is capable of alterting the public to emergency
situations, including tsunamis and coastal vulnerability.
ENHANCE 911.— Funds will be used to implement the
ENHANCE 911 Act of 2004.

øSEC. 628. (a) IN GENERAL.—The President of the United States
through his designee the Administrator of the National Aeronautics

agencies shall develop a national aeronautics policy to guide the
aeronautics programs of the Administration through 2020.
(b) CONTENT.—At a minimum, the national aeronautics policy shall

(2) the basis on which and the process by which priorities for
ensuing fiscal years will be selected;
(3) the facilities and personnel needed to carry out the program
through fiscal year 2011; and
(4) the budget assumptions on which the national aeronautics
policy is based.
(c) CONSIDERATIONS.—In developing the national aeronautics policy,
the President shall consider the following questions, which shall be
discussed in the policy statement—

to the Congress any study done by a non-governmental entity that
was used in the development of the national aeronautics policy.¿
øSEC. 629. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law or treaty,
none of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available under
this Act or any other Act may be expended or obligated by a department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States to pay administrative expenses or to compensate an officer or employee of the United
States in connection with requiring an export license for the export
to Canada of components, parts, accessories or attachments for firearms listed in Category I, section 121.1 of title 22, Code of Federal
Regulations (International Trafficking in Arms Regulations (ITAR),
part 121, as it existed on April 1, 2005) with a total value not
exceeding $500 wholesale in any transaction, provided that the conditions of subsection (b) of this section are met by the exporting party
for such articles.
(b) The foregoing exemption from obtaining an export license—
(1) does not exempt an exporter from filing any Shipper’s Export
Declaration or notification letter required by law, or from being
otherwise eligible under the laws of the United States to possess,
ship, transport, or export the articles enumerated in subsection
(a); and
(2) does not permit the export without a license of—
(A) fully automatic firearms and components and parts for
such firearms, other than for end use by the Federal Government,

States, or temporary import of Canadian-origin items from Canada
for end use in the United States or return to Canada for a Canadian
citizen.
(d) The President may require export licenses under this section
on a temporary basis if the President determines, upon publication
first in the Federal Register, that the Government of Canada has
implemented or maintained inadequate import controls for the articles specified in subsection (a), such that a significant diversion of
such articles has and continues to take place for use in international
terrorism or in the escalation of a conflict in another nation. The
President shall terminate the requirements of a license when reasons
for the temporary requirements have ceased.¿
øSEC. 630. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no department, agency, or instrumentality of the United States receiving appropriated funds under this Act or any other Act shall obligate or
expend in any way such funds to pay administrative expenses or
the compensation of any officer or employee of the United States
to deny any application submitted pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 2778(b)(1)(B)
and qualified pursuant to 27 CFR Sec. 478.112 or .113, for a permit
to import United States origin ‘‘curios or relics’’ firearms, parts, or

companies with total United States wholesale sales of gasoline and
petroleum distillates for calendar 2004 in excess of $500,000,000 and
by any retail distributor of gasoline and petroleum distillates against
which multiple formal complaints (that identify the location of a
particular retail distributor and provide contact information for the
complainant) of price-gouging were filed in August or September,
2005, with a Federal or State consumer protection agency; (2) a
comparison of, and an explanation of the reasons for changes in,

profit levels of such companies during the 12-month period ending
on August 31, 2005, and their profit levels for the month of September, 2005, including information for particular companies on a
basis that does not permit the identification of any company to which
the information relates; (3) a summary of tax expenditures (as defined
in section 3(3) of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control
Act of 1974 (2 U.S.C. 622(3)) for such companies; (4) the effects
of increased gasoline prices and gasoline price-gouging on economic
activity in the United States; and (5) the overall cost of increased
gasoline prices and gasoline price-gouging to the economy, including
the impact on consumers’ purchasing power in both declared State
and National disaster areas and elsewhere: Provided further, That,
in conducting its investigation, the Commission shall treat as evidence of price-gouging any finding that the average price of gasoline
available for sale to the public in September, 2005, or thereafter
in a market area located in an area designated as a State or National
disaster area because of Hurricane Katrina, or in any other area
where price-gouging complaints have been filed because of Hurricane
Katrina with a Federal or State consumer protection agency, exceeded
the average price of such gasoline in that area for the month of
August, 2005, unless the Commission finds substantial evidence that
the increase is substantially attributable to additional costs in connection with the production, transportation, delivery, and sale of gasoline
in that area or to national or international market trends: Provided
further, That in any areas of markets in which the Commission determines price increases are due to factors other than the additional
costs, it shall also notify the appropriate State agency of its findings:
Provided further, That the Commission shall provide information on
the progress of the investigation to the Senate and House Appropriations Committees, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and
Transportation, and the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce every 30 days after the date of enactment of
this Act, shall provide those Committees a written interim report
90 days after such date, and shall transmit a final report to those
Committees, together with its findings and recommendations, no later
than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act: Provided
further, That the Commission shall transmit recommendations, based
on its findings, to the Congress for any legislation necessary to protect consumers from gasoline price-gouging in both State and National disaster areas and elsewhere: Provided further, That chapter
35 of title 44, United States Code, does not apply to the collection
of information for the investigation required by this section: Provided
further, That if, during the investigation, the Commission obtains
evidence that a person may have violated a criminal law, the Commission may transmit that evidence to appropriate Federal or State
authorities: Provided further, That nothing in this section affects
any other authority of the Commission to disclose information.¿

interest: Provided, That for purposes of this section the term ‘‘international conference’’ shall mean a conference attended by representatives of the United States Government and representatives of foreign
governments, international organizations, or nongovernmental organizations.¿
