Appendix 2 - U. S. Centennial of Flight Commission Budget


Budget charts are enclosed that provide the actual funds obligated during fiscal years 1999, 2000 and 2001; and the plans for fiscal years 2002, 2003 and 2004.

In fiscal year 2001, the Centennial of Flight Commission ended the year within budget. The major accomplishment in fiscal year 2001 was the award of two significant procurements. The Outreach Plan procurement was awarded to Carter Ryley Thomas Public Relations and Marketing Counsel to provide ongoing activity support through fiscal year 2003; and Web Enhancement procurements were awarded on two separate occasions in fiscal year 2001 to organizations that provide creditable, historical and educational information electronically to enhance the content of the Centennial of Flight Commission Web site. Similar Web Enhancement procurements will be made at different times in fiscal years 2002 and 2003.

Fiscal year 2001 was the first year that the Centennial of Flight Commission paid for the office space, computers, printing and other support that was needed and used.

In fiscal year 2001, the General Accounting Office audited the Centennial of Flight Commission financial activity for fiscal year 1999 and fiscal year 2000. The General Accounting Office found that in fiscal year 2000, the Centennial of Flight Commission was over obligated by $29,729, causing an Anti-Deficiency Act violation. Because appropriations for the Centennial of Flight Commission have been made to the FAA, and the obligation at issue was entered into by the FAA, the FAA will report the violation of the Anti-Deficiency Act for fiscal year 2000 as required by law.

In fiscal year 2002, the Centennial of Flight Commission will continue with the second year of the Outreach and Web Enhancement procurements and the third year of the Web site maintenance effort. The Senate Transportation Bill included a fiscal year 2002 appropriation amount of $750,000 for the Centennial of Flight Commission, rather than the $900,000 that was authorized originally in the Centennial of Flight Commemoration Act, as amended.
