HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Subsection (a) of this section and sections 2253(b) and 2661(a)

of this title are based on Pub. L. 98-212, title VII, Sec. 735,

Dec. 8, 1983, 97 Stat. 1444, as amended by Pub. L. 98-525, title

XIV, Sec. 1403(a)(2), 1404, Oct. 19, 1984, 98 Stat. 2621.

In two instances, the source section for provisions to be

codified provides that defense appropriations may be used for

''welfare and recreation'' or ''welfare and recreational''

purposes. (Section 735 of Public Law 98-212 and section 8006(b) of

Public Law 99-190, to be codified as 10 U.S.C. 2241(a)(1) and

2490(2), respectively). The committee added the term ''morale'' in

both of these two instances to conform to the usual ''MWR'' usage

for morale, welfare, and recreation activities.

Subsection (b) of this section and sections 2242(1), (4) and

2253(a)(1) of this title are based on Pub. L. 98-212, title VII,

Sec. 705, Dec. 8, 1983, 97 Stat. 1437.

Section 705 of Public Law 98-212, to be codified as 10 U.S.C.

2241(b), provides that defense appropriations may be used in

connection with certain services and supplies ''as may be necessary

to carry out the purposes of this Act''. The reference to ''this

Act'' means Public Law 98-212, the FY84 Defense Appropriations Act.

Language similar to section 705 had been enacted as part of the

annual defense appropriation Act for many years. In the FY84 Act,

section 705 was enacted as a permanent provision. The quoted

phrase above was not, however, revised from the traditional annual

wording as the provision had appeared in annual appropriations Acts

in order to give it effect beyond the fiscal year concerned. Since

the general purpose of a defense appropriations Act is to provide

funds for national defense purposes, the committee, in codifying

this provision, revised the quoted phrase so as to read ''that may

be necessary for the national defense''. No change in meaning is

intended.

FUNDS PROHIBITED FOR CONTRACTS WITH PERSONS CONVICTED OF UNLAWFUL

MANUFACTURE OR SALE OF CONGRESSIONAL MEDALS OF HONOR

Pub. L. 105-262, title VIII, Sec. 8118, Oct. 17, 1998, 112 Stat.

2331, provided that: ''During the current fiscal year and

hereafter, no funds appropriated or otherwise available to the

Department of Defense may be used to award a contract to, extend a

contract with, or approve the award of a subcontract to any person

who within the preceding 15 years has been convicted under section

704 of title 18, United States Code, of the unlawful manufacture or

sale of the Congressional Medal of Honor.''

USE OF FUNDS FOR MODIFICATION OF RETIRED AIRCRAFT, WEAPON, SHIP OR

OTHER ITEM OF EQUIPMENT

Pub. L. 105-56, title VIII, Sec. 8053, Oct. 8, 1997, 111 Stat.

1232, provided that: ''None of the funds provided in this Act (see

Tables for classification) and hereafter shall be available for use

by a military department to modify an aircraft, weapon, ship or

other item of equipment, that the military department concerned

plans to retire or otherwise dispose of within 5 years after

completion of the modification: Provided, That this prohibition

shall not apply to safety modifications: Provided further, That

this prohibition may be waived by the Secretary of a military

department if the Secretary determines it is in the best national

security interest of the United States to provide such waiver and

so notifies the congressional defense committees in writing.''

Similar provisions were contained in the following prior

appropriation acts:

Pub. L. 104-208, div. A, title I, Sec. 101(b) (title VIII, Sec.

8055), Sept. 30, 1996, 110 Stat. 3009-71, 3009-99.

of the demonstration project, the status of an employee who carries

out a program referred to in subsection (a)(1) from the status of

an employee paid by appropriated funds to the status of a

nonappropriated fund instrumentality employee, except that such

conversion may occur only -

''(1) if the employee whose status is to be converted -

''(A) is fully informed of the effects of such conversion on

the terms and conditions of the employment of that employee for

purposes of title 5, United States Code, and on the benefits

provided to that employee under such title; and

''(B) consents to such conversion; or

''(2) in a manner which does not affect such terms and

conditions of employment or such benefits.

''(e) Reports. - (1) Not later than six months after the date of

submit to Congress an interim report on the implementation of this

only nonappropriated fund instrumentality employees had been used

further, That with respect to a change to a contract under which

the contractor is required to perform additional work, other than

adjustments to pay claims or increases under an escalation clause

(hereinafter referred to as a contract change), if such a charge

for such a contract change with respect to a program, project or

activity would cause the total amount of such obligations to exceed

$4,000,000 in any single fiscal year for a program, project, or

activity, the obligation may only be made if the obligation is

approved by the Secretary of Defense or, if such a change would

cause the total amount of such obligations to exceed $25,000,000 in

any single fiscal year for a program, project or activity, the

obligation may be made only after 30 days have elapsed after the

Secretary of Defense submits to the Committees on Appropriations

and Armed Services of the Senate and the House of Representatives a

notice of the intention to obligate such funds, together with the

legal basis and the policy reasons for making such an obligation.

''(c) The provisions of this section shall apply to any

appropriation account now or hereafter made unless the

appropriation Act for that account specifically provides for an

extension of the availability of such account and provides an

exception to the five year period of availability for recording,

adjusting and liquidating obligations properly chargeable to that

account.''
