The PCB requests that an overall budget be developed, within an indicative range of US$ 120-140 million for the first biennium, on the basis that the budget submitted to the PCB will be supported by projected levels of income and on the following considerations:
(i)The detailed budget will be based on the organizational structure proposed in document UNAIDS/PCB(1)/95.5, with the full understanding that every effort will be made to introduce as soon as possible, and certainly no later than the first PCB meeting in 1996, budgeting by planned objectives and targets, based on a strategic plan for UNAIDS;
(ii)The budget will also delineate the programme costs from the general administrative costs;
(iii)Sufficient attention will be paid to developing indicators or markers to enable the PCB to monitor the implementation of the workplan and programme budget;
(iv)An overall balance of allocation will be retained between global and country activities (approximately 40:60); in the event of changes in the budget, this balance will be reviewed in order to safeguard the core functions of UNAIDS.
