promulgated thereunder and (2) requires any report prepared pursuant to such contract, including plans, evaluations, studies, analyses and manuals, and any report prepared by the agency which is substantially derived from or substantially includes any report prepared pursuant to such contract, to contain information concerning (A) the contract pursuant to which the report was prepared and (B) the contractor who prepared the report pursuant to such contract. SEC. 414. (a) No appropriations made available in this Act shall be obligated in a manner that would cause obligations from the total budget authority available to any department or establishment, as defined in section 2 of the Budget and Accounting Act 1921, or any major administrative subdivision thereof, during the fiscal year ending September 30, 1981, to exceed 30 per centum for the last quarter of such fiscal year or 15 per centum for any month in the last quarter of such fiscal year. The Director of the Office of Management and Budget may waive the requirements of the preceding sentence with respect to any program or activity if the Director determines in writing that the waiver is necessary to avoid a serious disruption in carrying out such program or activity. (b) Not later than forty-five days after the end of each quarter of the fiscal year, the head of each department and establishment shall submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations and to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, specifying the amount of obligations incurred during the quarter and the percentage of total available budget authority for the fiscal year which the obligations constitute. (c) The Director of the Office of Management and Budget shall keep the Committees on Appropriations fully informed of actions taken to carry out the requirements of this section, including any waivers granted, and shall promptly report in writing any situation in which the obligations of any department and establishment exceed such requirements other than pursuant to a waiver. Not later than December 31, 1981, the Director shall submit a report to the Committees on Appropriations on the results of the requirements of this section and actions taken under this section, including the effects upon procurement and apportionment processes, together with any recommendations the Director considers appropriate. Concurrent with the submittal of the report to the Committees on Appropriations under the preceding sentence, the Director shall submit a copy of such report to the Comptroller General, who shall promptly review that report and submit to the Committees on Appropriations an analysis of the report and any recommendations which the Comptroller General considers appropriate. SEC. 415. All unresolved audits currently pending within agencies and departments, for which appropriations are made under this Act, shall be resolved not later than September 30, 1981. Any new audits, involving questioned expenditures, arising after the enactment of this Act shall be resolved within six months of completing the initial audit report. SEC. 416. Each department and agency for which appropriations are made under this Act shall take immediate action (1) to improve the collection of overdue debts owed to the United States within the jurisdiction of that department or agency; (2) to bill interest on delinquent debts as required by the Federal Claims Collection Standards; and (3) to reduce amounts of such debts written off as uncollectible.
