Administrator Lurita Doan outlined and fully supported GSA's balanced and fiscally responsible $20.9 billion fiscal year 2009 budget request before the House Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government on April 3.
Highlighting GSA's recent clean audit opinion, the request is the first submitted within the framework and under the direction of GSA's 2007-2012 Strategic Plan.
GSA's fiscal year 2009 budget requests a total of $481.6 million in discretionary budget authority, 2.2 percent of the agency's total budget. The remaining funds come from payments for products and services GSA provides to other federal agencies.
The $481.6 million request includes:
$300.2 million in net budget authority for the Federal Buildings Fund;
$172.9 million for GSA operating appropriations; and,
$8.5 million to support an upcoming presidential transition following the November 2008 general election.
