FY 2013 Budget Funding Tables

President's Budget Request

The FY 2013 congressional phrase of the budget process started with the transmittal of the President's Budget to Congress. As the funding for the USGS is contained in the annual Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriation Bill, it is the House and Senate Appropriation Subcommittees that review and make the initial recommended funding level for the USGS. The following Excel PDF worksheet is displayed at the USGS budget structure level for 2011 and 2012 Enacted and 2013 Budget Request funding levels.

Congressional Action

Upon receipt of the President's Budget Request, a series of major steps in the Congressional Appropriations process are undertaken before funds are appropriated to the USGS:

  1. Separate markups by the House and the Senate Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittees.
  2. Separate markups by the House and the Senate Full Appropriations Committees.
  3. Separate passage of a bill by the House and the Senate.
  4. Agreement by a Conference Committee consisting of House and Senate members to resolve differences between the separate bills passed by the House and the Senate.
  5. Passage of this Conference agreement by both the House and the Senate.
  6. Presentation of this House-Senate agreement to the President for his signature or veto.

The following Excel PDF contains worksheets that display USGS funding from a summary level down to the programmatic change and compare the proposed President’s Budget Request to each of the congressional actions.

Fiscal Year History

During or after the enactment of the USGS's appropriation, there may be across-the-board (ATB) reductions also enacted. In addition, other budget process changes such as rescissions, funding transfers in and (or) out, and budget supplemental funding can occur during the fiscal year after initial enactment of the budget. The budget history file provided below details these changes both at the budget structure and funds availability (one-year, multi-year, or no-year budget authority) levels of detail. In addition, this file provides a crosswalk of USGS budget authority to DOI Goals.
