    The Committee on Foreign Relations, having had under

                         I. Purpose and Summary

    The bill reauthorizes the Overseas Private Investment 
Corporation through September 30, 2007, makes several technical 
and perfecting amendments to its underlying statute, provides 
the Corporation with modest enhancements in its investment 
insurance and local currency guaranty programs and directs the 
Corporation to collect data on the amount of insurance and 
financing provided to minority and women-owned businesses. 
OPIC's authorization expired on September 30, 2003, and has 
been extended through November 21, 2003 by continuing 
    OPIC is a self-sustaining, independent government agency 
providing political risk insurance and project finance to U.S. 
businesses in over 150 emerging markets and developing 
countries. Its operations and activities have supported over 
250,000 U.S. jobs and produced $64 billion of U.S. exports 
while generating $4.4 billion in reserves. Over the past 30 
years, it has created close to 670,000 host country jobs and 
supported $145 billion of investments overseas. Nearly 70 
percent of suppliers to OPIC-backed projects are U.S. small 

              II. Background and Need for the Legislation

    In 1971, OPIC was established as an independent government 
corporation by Congress to help American businesses compete 
overseas and to promote economic development in host countries.
    OPIC Chairman and CEO Peter Watson is to be commended for 
his efforts to refocus OPIC on the administration's overall 
development priorities, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, 
where new project approvals over the past two years now amount 
to $750 million. It is focused on the housing and health 
sectors, promoting projects and activities in South Africa that 
meet the challenges of HIV/AIDS, and providing clean drinking 
water to countries in West and East Africa.

OPIC and Its Outreach Efforts

    The committee commends the recent efforts of OPIC to reach 
out to nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and the labor 
community on issues relating to accountability, transparency, 
environmental and labor standards, human rights and corruption. 
The committee expects OPIC to continue a regular dialogue with 
all stakeholders and the goal of making reforms and process 
improvements with respect to issues such as accountability, 
transparency, environmental, social/labor and worker rights 

OPIC and An Accountability Mechanism and A Transparency Initiative

    The committee is aware of the establishment in recent years 
of various mechanisms within multilateral and bilateral 
financial and export-promotion institutions to increase 
accountability and transparency of those institutions. These 
institutions include: the World Bank, the International Finance 
Corporation, the Asian Development Bank, the Inter-American 
Development Bank, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency, 
the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the 
International Monetary Fund, the Export Development Corporation 
of Canada, and the Japan Bank for International Cooperation. 
The committee encourages OPIC to follow the example of the best 
practices of these institutions and work with all stakeholders 
to establish an ``accountability mechanism'' and continue its 
``transparency initiative.''
    An accountability mechanism should: evaluate and report on 
OPIC compliance with environmental, social, labor, human 
rights, and transparency standards consistent with OPIC 
statutory mandates; provide a forum for resolving concerns 
regarding the impacts of specific OPIC-supported projects with 
respect to such issues; and provide advice regarding OPIC 
projects, policies and practices. Such a mechanism should also: 
be transparent in its operations and outputs, and be responsive 
to stakeholders' considerations on environmental and social 
concerns, including labor, human rights and corruption 
concerns; be accessible to project-affected parties; and insure 
the independence and integrity of the evaluations and advice 
provided by the accountability mechanism. With respect to the 
independence of the accountability mechanism, the committee 
urges the Corporation to follow the model of several 
international financial institutions by providing the mechanism 
the ability to report directly to the Corporation's Board of 
    The committee commends OPIC's efforts to convene a dialogue 
with stakeholders on a transparency initiative and encourages 
OPIC to continue this dialogue. The committee believes a 
transparency initiative should heighten transparency and 
information disclosure concerning OPIC's projects and internal 
mechanisms, consistent with existing statutes and laws. 
Interested stakeholders, including NGOs, environmental and 
labor organizations, and the business/investor community, 
should play an active role in this process and provide 
recommendations on how it should be used to strengthen OPIC's 
programs and policies.
    The committee will use its oversight function to monitor 
OPIC's performance and progress toward achieving these goals, 
and expects a fulsome briefing by OPIC on such progress and 
performance six months after enactment of this Act, and 
annually thereafter for the duration of the authorization 
contained in this bill.

OPIC and Labor Issues

    The committee recognizes that OPIC has statutory 
obligations with regard to worker rights which must be fully 
    The committee also commends the efforts of OPIC in guarding 
against an erosion of U.S. jobs as a result of OPIC-supported 
projects. OPIC should continue to work, in consultation with 
all its stakeholders, to ensure that: OPIC-supported projects 
do not result in significant job loss or substantially reduce 
positive trade benefits for the U.S.; investors provide 
detailed information on jobs created or supported by an OPIC-
supported project; due diligence, reporting, and monitoring 
procedures provide detailed, accurate and timely information on 
U.S. effects; and enforcement procedures are comprehensive, 
effective, and transparent.
    The committee will use its oversight function to monitor 
OPIC's performance and progress toward achieving these goals 
and expects a fulsome briefing by OPIC on such progress and 
performance six months after enactment of this Act, and 
annually thereafter for the duration of the authorization 
contained in this bill.

OPIC and Minority-Business Outreach

    The committee commends OPIC for its minority-owned business 
outreach efforts and encourages the Corporation to continue its 
activities and to work with other U.S. Government trade, 
development and finance agencies in promoting economic 
opportunities for small and minority-owned businesses in 
developing countries.

OPIC and Small Business

    The committee commends OPIC's efforts in support of U.S 
Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs). The committee notes 
that many of these firms, particularly those with annual 
revenues of less than $35 million, could substantially increase 
their exports to the extent that they secure access to OPIC 
financing and investment support. The committee supports recent 
efforts by the Corporation to establish a Small Business 
Center, to create a Small Business Initiative in coordination 
with the Small Business Administration, to launch a SME shared-
risk loan guaranty program in partnership with the private 
sector, and to create a new Small and Medium Enterprise 
Department to implement and oversee SME activities.

                         III. Committee Action

    On November 6, 2003, the Committee on Foreign Relations 
considered the bill, pursuant to notice, in open session. The 
committee agreed to a motion by Chairman Lugar to favorably 
report the bill to the Senate, by voice vote, a quorum being 

                           IV. Cost Estimate

    In accordance with rule XXVI, paragraph 11(a) of the 
Standing Rules of the Senate, the committee provides the 
following estimate of the cost of this legislation prepared by 
the Congressional Budget Office:

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                 Washington, DC, November 10, 2003.

Honorable Richard G. Lugar, Chairman
Committee on Foreign Relations,
United States Senate,
Washington, DC.

    Dear Mr. Chairman:

    The Congressional Budget Office has prepared the enclosed 
cost estimate for S. 1824, the Overseas Private Investment 
Corporation Amendments Act of 2003.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Joseph C. 
                             Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Director.


S. 1824--Overseas Private Investment Corporation Amendments Act of 2003


    S. 1824 would extend through 2007 the authority of the 
Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) to issue 
political risk insurance and to finance investments in 
developing countries and emerging market economies. The bill 
would clarify that the term ``expropriation'' would include 
actions by political subdivisions or a foreign government or 
corporations owned by or controlled by foreign governments. It 
also would authorize OPIC to issue guarantees in local 
currencies, and it would require OPIC to report to the Congress 
on the effectiveness of its activities to reach businesses 
owned by women and minorities. OPIC's authority would be 
limited to such amounts as may be provided in advance in 
appropriations acts. CBO estimates that implementing the bill 
would cost $146 million over the 2004-2008 period, assuming the 
appropriation of the necessary funds. The bill would not affect 
direct spending or receipts.
    OPIC is a government corporation authorized to encourage 
private-sector investment in developing countries and emerging 
market economies. It insures investments against the risk of 
losses due to expropriation, inconvertablity of currencies, and 
war or political violence. In addition, OPIC finances 
investments through guaranteed and direct loans. OPIC is 
largely self-financing. Its noncredit program earns income from 
investments in government securities and insurance operations.
    S. 1824 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act (UMRA) 
and would not affect the budgets of State, local, or tribal 


    The estimated budgetary impact of S. 1824 is shown in the 
following table. The estimate assumes that the bill will be 
enacted before the end of calendar year 2003, that funds and 
authority will be provided in annual appropriation acts near 
the start of each fiscal year, and that outlays will follow 
historical spending patterns. The costs of this legislation 
fall within budget function 150 (international affairs).

                                                                By Fiscal Year, in Millions of Dollars
                                                        2003      2004      2005      2006      2007      2008

                                        SPENDING SUBJECT TO APPROPRIATION

Spending Under Current Law for OPIC:
  Estimated Authorization Level \1\.................      -209      -233      -245      -266      -282      -297

Spending Under S. 1824 for OPIC:
  Estimated Authorization Level \1\.................      -209      -206      -210      -219      -224      -261
  Estimated Outlays.................................      -213      -215      -218      -226      -231      -241

Note: OPIC = Overseas Private Investment Corporation.

\1\ The 2003 level is the amount appropriated for that year plus the estimated amount of offsetting collections
  in OPIC's noncredit account. A full-year appropriation for fiscal year 2004 has not been enacted for OPIC; the
  amounts shown here assume limited funding to permit OPIC to continue servicing its outstanding insurance and
  credits and to receive offsetting collections.
\2\ The estimated authorization level assumes the 2003 funding level adjusted for inflation through 2007.
  Funding at the 2003 level over that period would lower outlays by $21 million over the 2004-2008 period.

                           BASIS OF ESTIMATE

    In 2003, OPIC received appropriations of $40 million for 
administrative expenses and $24 million for the cost of credit 
as defined by the Federal Credit Reform Act. Funding for 2004 
has not been enacted. The estimated spending under current law 
assumes that OPIC continues to service its outstanding 
insurance and credits and to receive collections on its 
investments in U.S. securities, but that it issues no new 
insurance or finances no new investments after September 30, 
2003. (Interest on existing securities brings in collections of 
more than $230 million a year to the OPIC account; but those 
collections are offset by interest paid elsewhere in the 
federal budget.) CBO assumes that administrative expenses under 
current law would be gradually reduced to a minimum rate 
necessary to service outstanding insurance and credits.
    CBO assumes that under S. 1824 OPIC would continue to issue 
insurance over the 2004-2007 period and that funding for 
administrative expenses and the cost of credit would be 
provided in annual appropriations acts at the 2003 level 
adjusted for inflation through 2007 since a full-year 
appropriation has not been enacted. Based on information from 
OPIC, CBO estimates that the new reporting requirement and 
local-currency guarantees would not significantly affect the 
costs of OPIC's operations. Thus, enacting the bill would 
continue the policies that are assumed in CBO's baseline 
through 2007. Because the bill would extend OPIC's authorities 
through 2007 only, we estimate that funding in 2008 would only 
be needed for the administrative expenses of servicing 
outstanding insurance and credits.


    S. 1824 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in UMRA and would not affect the budgets of 
State, local, or tribal governments.

        pursuant to insurance issued under section 234(a), and 
        the amount of financing issued under sections 234 (b) 
        and (c), shall not exceed in the aggregate 
          (B) Subject to spending authority provided in 
        appropriations Acts pursuant to section 504(b) of the 
        Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990, the Corporation is 
        authorized to transfer such sums as are necessary from

        subsidy and administrative costs of the investment 
        guaranties and direct loan programs under subsections 
        (b) and (c) of section 234.
          (2) Termination of authority.--The authority of 
        subsections (a), (b), and (c) of section 234 shall 
        continue until [November 1, 2000] September 30, 2007.
    (b) * * * [Repealed--1992]
    (c) There shall be established in the Treasury of the 
United States [an insurance and guaranty fund, which shall have 
separate accounts to be known as the Insurance Reserve and the 
Guaranty Reserve, which reserves] a noncredit account revolving 
fund, which shall be available for discharge of liabilities, as 
provided in subsection (d) of this section until such time as 
all such liabilities have been discharged or have expired or 
until all [such reserves have] of the fund has been expended in 
accordance with the provisions of this section. Such fund shall 
be funded by: (1) the funds heretofore available to discharge 
liabilities under predecessor guaranty authority (including 
housing guaranty authorities), less both the amount made 
available for housing guaranty programs pursuant to section 
223(b) and the amount made available to the Corporation 
pursuant to subsection (e) of this section and (2) such sums as 
shall be appropriated pursuant to subsection (f) of this 
section for such purposes. [The allocation of such funds to 
each such reserve shall be determined by the Board after 
consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury.] Additional 
amounts may thereafter be transferred to such [reserves] fund 
pursuant to section 236.
    (d) Any payment made to discharge liabilities under 
investment insurance or reinsurance issued under section 234 
under similar predecessor guaranty authority or under section 
234A, shall be paid first out of the [Insurance Reserve, as 
long as such reserve] noncredit account revolving fund, as long 
as such fund remains available, and thereafter out of funds 
made available pursuant to subsection (f) of this section. Any 
payments made to discharge liabilities under guaranties issued 
under section 234(b) [or under similar predecessor guaranty 
authority shall be paid first out of the Guaranty Reserve as 
long as such reserve remains available, and thereafter out of 
funds made available pursuant to subsection (f) of this 
section] or 234(c) shall be paid in accordance with the Federal 
Credit Reform Act of 1990.
    (e) There is hereby authorized to be transferred to the 
Corporation at its call, for the purposes specified in section 
236, all fees and other revenues collected under predecessor 
guaranty authority from December 31, 1968, available as of the 
date of such transfer.
    (f) There are authorized to be appropriated to the 
Corporation, to remain available until expended, such amounts 
as may be necessary from time to time to replenish or increase 
the [insurance and guaranty fund] noncredit account revolving 
fund, to discharge the liabilities under insurance, 
reinsurance, or guaranties issued by the Corporation or issued 
under predecessor guaranty authority, or to discharge 
obligations of the Corporation purchased by the Secretary of 
the Treasury pursuant to this subsection. However, no 
appropriations shall be made to augment the [Insurance Reserve] 
noncredit account revolving fund until the amount of funds in 
the [Insurance Reserve] noncredit account revolving fund is 
less than $25,000,000. Any appropriations to augment the 
[Insurance Reserve] noncredit account revolving fund shall then 
only be made either pursuant to specific authorization enacted 
after the date of enactment of the Overseas Private Investment 
Corporation Amendments Act of 1974, or to satisfy the full 
faith and credit provision of section 237(c). In order to 
discharge liabilities under investment insurance or 
reinsurance, the Corporation is authorized to issue from time 
to time for purchase by the Secretary of the Treasury its 
notes, debentures, bonds, or other obligations; but the 
aggregate amount of such obligations outstanding at any one 
time shall not exceed $100,000,000. Any such obligation shall 
be repaid to the Treasury within one year after the date of 
issue of such obligation. Any such obligation shall bear 
interest at a rate determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, 
taking into consideration the current average market yield on 
outstanding marketable obligations of the United States of 
comparable maturities during the month preceding the issuance 
of any obligation authorized by this subsection. The Secretary 
of the Treasury shall purchase any obligation of the 
Corporation issued under this subsection, and for such purchase 
he may use as a public debt transaction the proceeds of the 
sale of any securities issued under the Second Liberty Bond Act 
after the date of enactment of the Overseas Private Investment 
Corporation Amendments Act of 1974. The purpose for which 
securities may be issued under such Bond Act shall include any 
such purchase.
