                                    The Honorable Ernest F. Hollings
                                    Ranking Minority Member
                                    Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation
                                    United States Senate

                                    Subject: Ocean and Coastal Activities: Information on Federal Funding

                                    The Oceans Act of 20001 established the Commission on Ocean Policy
                                    (Commission) to make recommendations for a coordinated and
                                    comprehensive national ocean policy. The Commission is required to
                                    prepare and submit to the Congress and the President a final report of its
                                    findings and recommendations, which is scheduled for September 2003.
                                    The Oceans Act also requires the President to biennially submit a report to
                                    the Congress listing all federal programs related to ocean and coastal
                                    activities, including, among other things, current and future funding levels
                                    for each program identified, which the Commission can use in its work.
                                    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) submitted the first report for
                                    the President, entitled Federal Ocean and Coastal Activities Report, to the
                                    Congress in March 2003.

                                    Because OMB’s report only contained actual funding data for ocean and
                                    coastal activities for the period fiscal years 2000 through 2001, you asked
                                    us to obtain funding levels for these activities for fiscal years 2002, 2003,
                                    and projected for 2004.

                                    This letter documents the data provided to us by 14 federal agencies. We
                                    have provided a summary of total funding, by agency, for ocean and coastal
                                    activities, by fiscal year; following the summary are agency-by-agency
                                    schedules that show, by fiscal year, the activities funded and the related
                                    funding levels (see enclosure).

                                    The funding data for fiscal years 2000 through 2003 show that

                                    • total funding for ocean and coastal activities was about $34.2 billion;



                                    1
                                     Pub. L. No. 106-256, 114 Stat. 644 (2000).

• funding for ocean and coastal activities increased each year; and

• for the most part, agency funding has either remained stable or
  increased.

To obtain these data, we provided the cognizant agencies with worksheets
containing the data on ocean and coastal activities they had reported to
OMB and the funding levels as reported by OMB in its March 2003 report
for fiscal years 2000 and 2001. We asked the agencies to provide updated
budget figures for fiscal years 2002, 2003, and projected for 2004. We also
asked the agencies to provide information on any new programs they had
instituted after reporting to OMB. We did not verify the data provided by
the agencies and are reporting it as submitted to us. We performed our
work from March 2003 through August 2003 in accordance with generally
accepted government auditing standards.

We are sending copies of this report to the Secretaries of Agriculture,
Commerce, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, Interior, State, and
Transportation; the Administrators of the Environmental Protection
Agency and National Aeronautic and Space Administration; and the
Directors of the Marine Mammal Commission, National Science
Foundation, Smithsonian Institution, and the U.S. Agency for International
Development. In addition, this report will be available at no charge on the
GAO Web site at http://www.gao.gov.

GAO’s Mission            The General Accounting Office, the audit, evaluation and investigative arm of
                         Congress, exists to support Congress in meeting its constitutional responsibilities
                         and to help improve the performance and accountability of the federal government
                         for the American people. GAO examines the use of public funds; evaluates federal
                         programs and policies; and provides analyses, recommendations, and other
                         assistance to help Congress make informed oversight, policy, and funding
                         decisions. GAO’s commitment to good government is reflected in its core values of
                         accountability, integrity, and reliability.


Obtaining Copies of      The fastest and easiest way to obtain copies of GAO documents at no cost is
                         through the Internet. GAO’s Web site (www.gao.gov) contains abstracts and full-
GAO Reports and          text files of current reports and testimony and an expanding archive of older

Testimony                using key words and phrases. You can print these documents in their entirety,
                         including charts and other graphics.
                         Each day, GAO issues a list of newly released reports, testimony, and
                         correspondence. GAO posts this list, known as “Today’s Reports,” on its Web site
                         daily. The list contains links to the full-text document files. To have GAO e-mail this
                         list to you every afternoon, go to www.gao.gov and select “Subscribe to
