Mandated Reports

ICAMS is responsible for producing an annual Budget and Coordination Report (BCR). The budgetary information in this report provides a ‘horizontal’ look across all Federal agencies on the meteorological funding requested in the current President’s Budget and the funding enacted over the previous two fiscal years. The BCR is prepared for delivery to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to satisfy the requirements of PL 87-843 section 304, in which Congress directed that OMB prepare an annual horizontal budget for meteorological programs conducted by the Federal agencies. This report also satisfies Public Law 115-25, Title IV, Section 402(a)(2) - the Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017- by identifying and prioritizing top forecast needs for coordination against budget requests and program initiatives across Federal offices and agencies.
