CBO: Implementation of New DHS NPPD Name Would Not Affect Gov’t Budget

budget analysis reviewThe Congressional Budget Office has said the enactment of a bill to rename the Department of Homeland Security‘s National Protection and Programs Directorate as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Agency would not have what analysts called a “significant effect” on federal budget.

CBO said in a cost estimate report published Wednesday the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Agency Act of 2016 primarily codifies DHS’ reorganization efforts for NPPD and would not lead to new operating requirements.

That bill would not impact direct spending or revenues and would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits through four consecutive 10-year periods from 2027 onward, CBO added.

CBO says stated the bill does not include intergovernmental or private-sector mandates and would not impose costs on state, local or tribal governments.

The bill also authorizes DHS to create cybersecurity and infrastructure protection divisions to carry out certain missions of NPPD, CBO noted.
