NCI’s Budget Request — Professional Judgment Budget
The National Cancer Act of 1971 gives NCI special authority to submit an annual budget estimate directly to the President for transfer to Congress. This special authority is unique to NCI among the NIH Institutes and Centers. The document is commonly called the “Bypass Budget” because it bypasses the usual NIH Institute or Center submission process. The Secretary of Health and Human Services, the NIH Director, and the National Cancer Advisory Board have the opportunity to comment on, but not change, NCI’s professional judgment budget request.
NCI's Annual Plan and Budget Proposal can be found within the website of the Office of Budget and Finance.
President’s Budget Request
The Congressional Budget Act of 1974 requires that the President submit to Congress, on or before the first Monday in February of each year, a detailed budget request for the coming federal fiscal year.
The Congressional Justification, commonly called “the C.J.," provides the Senate and House Appropriations Committees detailed estimates and justifications for the President’s Budget Request by explaining the mission of the agency; outlining the goals and objectives of the coming fiscal year; and providing comparative data for the previous, current, and proposed President’s Budget Request.
Budget Request Congressional Testimony
The NCI Director often is asked to submit testimony to the House and Senate in support of the President’s Budget Request for NCI. Information on hearings and testimonies can be found on NCI's Office of Government and Congressional Relations website.
