On Monday, February 13th, the White House released its annual budget blueprint for FY13 to be reviewed for Congressional approval. The map outlines the Administration’s funding priorities for the upcoming fiscal year within the federal agencies. It appears that overall research funding comes out relatively unscathed, with slight increases across the board in many critical programs, although there are some cuts to a handful of critical programs as well. It is important to note that this is considered the Administration’s “suggestion” on how to allocate funds, and will likely be altered as Congress, who holds the purse strings, proceeds forward in their budgeting process through September 30th. Attached you will find a variety of documents that break down the budget request by Agency. As more information is released, the documents will be updated accordingly. If you should have any questions please feel free to contact me at your convenience, at 302-540-9342 or in the comments section.
