OMB and OSTP Outline FY '09 Budget Priorities
Last week, Office of Science and Technology Policy Director John Marburger and Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Stephen McMillin sent a seven-page memo to the heads of executive departments and agencies on the "FY 2009 Administration Research and Development Budget Priorities." This document highlights the American Competitiveness Initiative as a Presidential Priority, provides general R&D program guidance, outlines interagency R&D priorities in nine areas, and briefly reviews the Administration's ongoing R&D investment criteria. The FY 2009 budget process now goes behind closed doors, with further information on the requests for FY 2009 (beginning on October 1, 2008), not available until President Bush sends his budget request to Congress next February.
