2009 Pie Chart Descriptive Link

This pie chart shows the distribution of NIST resources for fiscal year 2009 (all numbers are rounded). NIST's FY 2009 resources total $1.6 billion.

In the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009, NIST received $819 million in appropriation funds as follows:

  • $472 million for Scientific and Technical Research and Services (STRS) of which $3.5 million of this funding is for congressionally directed projects;
  • $175 million for Industrial Technology Services (ITS) of which the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership received $110 million and the Technology Innovation Program received $65 million; and
  • $172 million for Construction of Research Facilities (CRF) of which $44 million of this funding is for congressionally directed projects and $30 million is for a competitive construction grant program.

NIST expects $48 million in other reimbursables (such as fees) and $125 million in funds from other agencies.

In addition, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provided $220 million for STRS and $360 million for CRF, with half ($180 million) designated to address NIST's backlog of maintenance and renovation and for construction of new facilities and laboratories, and the other half ($180 million) designated for a competitive construction grant program.

Lastly, NIST is expecting to receive $30 million of ARRA funding from other federal agencies, including $20 million from the Department of Health and Human Services for support of computerized medical record standards development and testing; and an anticipated $10 million interagency agreement with the Department of Energy for support of standards for electric-power "Smart Grid" interoperability.
