Commission proposes budget for Fiscal Year 2014

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has submitted to Congress a request for an appropriation of just over $359 million for the 2014 fiscal year, which begins October 1, 2013.

The Commission’s appropriation request is detailed in its Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Estimates, a 132 page document submitted to Congress in April 2013. The Commission’s Budget Estimates document includes a wealth of additional information about the Commission, its operations and its strategic goals for the coming fiscal year.

The Commission’s proposed 2014 appropriation represents a 3.6% increase over the nearly $347 million requested for fiscal year 2013. However, the Commission projects that its requested appropriation will be offset by the nearly $455 million it expects to collect in regulatory fees and auction proceeds. As a frame of reference, the Commission projected collections of nearly $300 million in fiscal year 2006, and about $185 million in fiscal year 2000.

The Commission also projects that it will employ the equivalent of 1821 full-time staffers during the 2014 fiscal year, up from 1776 in fiscal year 2013.
