At the Uruguay Round, developing countries took on obligations not only to reduce trade barriers but also to undertake significant reforms of regulations and trade procedures. The Round did not, however, take into account the cost of implementing these reforms -- a full year's development budget for many of the least developed countries -- nor did it ask whether the money might be more productive in other development uses.

DoDżs cost estimates to implement recommendations from the most recent Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) round have steadily increased each budget year since 2005. This BRAC round is the fifth such round undertaken by DoD since 1988 and, it is the biggest, most complex, and costliest BRAC round ever. To implement BRAC 2005, DoD plans to spend nearly $35 billion. This review of DoD's FY 2010 BRAC budget indicates that DoD plans to spend more to implement BRAC 2005 recommendations compared to last year's BRAC budget. DoD's estimated one-time costs to implement this BRAC round increased by alm

The 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) round is the 5th such round undertaken by DoD since 1988 and is the biggest, most complex, and costliest BRAC round ever. With this BRAC round, the DoD plans to execute hundreds of BRAC actions affecting over 800 defense locations, relocate over 123,000 personnel, and spend over $35 billion -- an unprecedented amount, given that DoD has spent nearly $26 billion to implement the four previous BRAC rounds combined. This report assesses: (1) the challenges DoD faces in implementing BRAC recommendations; and (2) DoD's efforts to mitigate any challenges,

A complete history of the Uruguay Round of negotiations in the GATT told in chronological order, from 1986 to 1994. The Round divides into five fairly distinct time periods, separated by three ministerial meetings and by the presentation of the first comprehensive but tentative package of results in 1991. The agreements reached have set in place a new World Trade Organization and new rule for trade which offer the promise of more open world markets and opportunities for additional trade and economic development worth hundreds of billions of dollars.

In 2007, Medicare spent $8.3 billion for durable medical equipment (DME) and related supplies. To reduce spending, the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) required that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) phase in a competitive bidding program (CBP) for DME and other items. DME suppliers began bidding in round 1 of the CBP in May 2007. After contracts were awarded, the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 was enacted in July 2008. This report examined: (1) the results of CBP round 1; (2) the major challenges CMS
