Budget, Planning and Economic Studies

Budget | Planning | Economic Studies


NIST has an operating budget of about $771 million for fiscal year 2004 (Oct. 1, 2003 to Sept. 30, 2004). NIST appropriations provide $331.1 million for measurement and standards research in the NIST Laboratories; $5.4 million for the Baldrige National Quality Program (BNQP) to promote and recognize organizational performance excellence; $38.6 million for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), an outreach program providing assistance to small and mid-sized manufacturers in all 50 states; and $169.1 million for the Advanced Technology Program (ATP) to partner with industry to develop broadly beneficial new technologies. NIST appropriations also include $64.3 million for renovation and repair of NIST facilities in Gaithersburg, Md., and Boulder, Colo., most of which are 35 to 45 years old, and other construction projects.

In addition, NIST expects to receive about $39.9 million in fees for reimbursable services such as calibrations, measurement standards, and laboratory accreditation. Other federal agencies support an estimated $122.5 million of research in the NIST Laboratories during FY 2004. Pie chart displaying all NIST resources for FY 2004.

Economic Studies

NIST regularly assesses the economic impact of its projects. These studies are used, for example, to evaluate completed and ongoing research and related projects, as well as to support strategic planning processes. For detailed information, see the studies and presentations cited below.
