FY2012 Budget Is Now Available at OMB's Website

The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has released the FY2012 budget request. It can be viewed on OMB’s website. Top level information for government departments and agencies is provided. Detailed budget information is usually released by each department or agency later in the day.

NASA’s detailed budget is expected to be posted on NASA’s website at 1:30 today. The total requested for NASA for FY2012 is $18.7 billion, the same as its FY2010 level. For NOAA, the OMB documents state that $1.9 billion is requested for NOAA’s satellite programs, including geostationary and polar-orbiting weather satellites. The only mention of space systems in the brief write-up about DOD is $975 million for the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) communications satellite system. It also says that DOD will implement an “innovative satellite acquisition approach in order to reduce costs and strengthen the industrial base.”

The OMB site in general has lots of other useful budget information as well, including analytical perspectives and historical tables.
