H.R. 3180 would authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2018 for intelligence activities of the U.S. government, the Intelligence Community Management Account (ICMA), and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System (CIARDS). The bill also would modify other programs across the intelligence community.
CBO does not provide estimates for classified programs; therefore, this estimate addresses only the unclassified aspects of the bill. On that limited basis, CBO estimates that implementing the unclassified provisions of the bill would cost $520 million over the 2018-2022 period, subject to appropriation of the specified amounts.
In addition, enacting the bill also would affect direct spending by making changes to CIARDS that would enhance the benefits offered to certain annuitants; therefore, pay-as-you procedures apply. However, CBO estimates that those effects would be less than $500,000 over the 2018-2027 period.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3180 would not significantly increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 3180 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 governments.
