Comparison of Dollars, Positions, and Space
Funds are obligations against the annual appropriation in millions of dollars. FTEs are the number of work years for appointed employees of the NCI. A work year equals 2,080 hours. Space is in thousands of square feet, excluding NCI-Frederick.
The increase in space (Sq Ft) during FY 2013 is due to NCI's lease of its Shady Grove complex, a new consolidated facility in Rockville, MD. This facility has the advantage of providing additional space for NCI scientific programs, and includes conference and meeting rooms, a cafeteria and a data center that serves multiple NCI facilities. During FY 2013, NCI was working to decommission their vacated leased facilities, and continued to lease a portion of them while completing the decommissioning process.
