FCC Requests 2006 Budget of $304 Million, up 8%

The Federal Communications Commission is requesting $304,057,000 for its fiscal year 2006 funding. This compares to $281 million appropriated for FY 2005, an increase of 8.2%.

The FCC said the requested FY 2006 funding level will cover mandatory increases for salaries and benefits and inflationary increases for office space rental, supplies, printing, postage and contractual services. The budget level also includes funds to allow the FCC to consolidate and upgrade commission-owned facilities at Columbia, Maryland; to provide for critical enhancements to the FCC's major electronic filing systems; to implement a government-wide automated human resources system; and to fund additional staff to assist with program oversight associated with USF audit activities.
