Increases have been necessary to fund inflation and recapitalization effortsCongressional Budget has remained almost flat since FY 2005, presenting a challenge for us to maintain current servicesThis is the first year the Presidents Request has been above the previous years enacted Level</p><p>*Most of the increase in FY 2009 represents planned increases for capital acquisitions including satellites and facilitiesOf the $443.6M in program changes, $373.2M or 84% is for PAC capital acquisitions (Satellites and facilities)Budget continues support of our core mission services from weather to fisheriesImportant year for GOES-R and key facilities projects including the Southwest Fisheries Science Center, the PRC, and Fairbanks$49.1M ORF increases dedicated to the Presidents Ocean Initiative, including implementation of the MSA to meet our commitments and legal deadlinesRequest includes $81.4M in climate related investments to both improve our ability to monitor global climate change and predict drought through NIDIS:$74.0M Climate Sensor (CERES and TSIS) development$2.0M NIDIS </p><p>*Chart represents buildup from the FY 2008 Enacted LevelATBs are again our top priority. This request funds the mandatory federal pay raise at 2.9% and funds our non-labor inflation as wellORF increases include base restoration funds to bring the Enacted level back in line with the FY08 Presidents RequestPAC increases include GOES-R ($235.2M) and the three facilities projects ($64.0M)**Planned investments in satellites and facilities drive increases in NESDIS and Program SupportOtherwise, a mostly balanced portfolio of increases across the line officesNESDIS is the largest increase due to the planned ramp up in the GOES-R seriesProgram Support increases reflect the investment in priority facility projects such as the PRC, the replacement Southwest Fisheries Science Center Lab, and the Fairbanks Satellite FacilityNOS increases include support for the new Marine Debris program, continued support for IOOS, and restorations of base funding for the Response and Restoration programNMFS increases address statutory requirements for the MSAOAR increases focus on the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) as well as Climate researchNWS increases focus on investments to existing systems and networks (Weather Radio, AWIPS, CRS), as well as restoration of base funding throughout the Line OfficeOMAO increases include operational costs for aircraft, major repairs for the RAINIER, and maritime crew safety*The remaining slides provide increase highlights for each of these priority areas.*ATBs are our number one priorityThese resources are critical to sustain our mission servicesBackup Point:Inflationary costs (Adjustments to Base) contain:$42.0 in Calculated ATBsXxx in Labor CostsXXX in Non-labor costs*We need these investments to sustain our critical mission services from monitoring hurricanes to processing our grants and acquisitions.O&amp;M for Aircraft: +$4.0MProvides 1,295 additional flight hours for current and new missions for a total of 2,845 flight hoursAdditional flight hours address program needs for hurricane intensity and tracking forecasts, winter storm forecasts, coastal mapping flights, as well as flood and tsunami inunation mapping needsCurrently, we can only fund 90% of hurricane flight needs, 80% of winter storms tracking needs, and 30% of coastal &amp; tsunami mapping needsFY07: $18.7M; FY08: $25.2M; FY09: $30.0MRAINIER MRP: +$6.1MRAINIER is 39 years old, and NOAAs most productive hydrographic survey vesselMRP will extend service life by up to 15 yearsAnticipate the ship will begin MRP in 11/09, with a 6-7 month repair periodMaintains RAINIERs operational tempo until replacement obtainedLost cost way to meet our mapping needs in the PacificFY07: $0.0; FY08: $0.0M; FY09: $6.1MVessel Calibration: +$1.0MBELL M. SHIMADA comes online in FY09 and must be calibrated with the DAVID STARR JORDAN to ensure consistency in the time-series across vesselsIncrease provides for 18 month calibration period for ground fish, Pacific whiting, PacNW marine mammal, and ecosystem monitoringFY07: $0.0; FY08: $0.0M; FY09: $1.0MMaritime Crew &amp; Safety Rotation: +$1.7MReflects an FY08 increase requested but not granted by FY08 omnibus language$1.7M improves crew safety &amp; rotation on 7 of NOAAs 20 active vessels, and lowers attrition rate from 235 to 19%. Provides for 29 new FTEFY07: $0.0; FY08: $0.0M; FY09: $1.7MAcquisition &amp; Grants: +$1.2MNOAA processes grants and contract awards totaling approx. $2B annuallyUnlike other agencies, NOAA does not have an org. dedicated to oversight of the AGO functionRequest provides for additional staff capacity to provide oversight and improve processFY07: $12.2M; FY08: $12.7M; FY09: $13.9M*Theme for this slide:This is a key year for our satellite activitiesThe GOES N, POES K-N and NPOESS all have planned deceases in FY 09 that track with procurement schedules for these program. NPOESS has been rebaselined and our new management team is aggressively managing cost, schedule, and performance. Very important year for GOES R. The ramp up for FY 09 is consistent with the plans from FY 08 Presidents Budget We need to sustain continuity of our GOES observations with the planned launch of GOES R in FY 2014Yes, they are expensive, complicated, and take time to build but are also absolutely essential to our weather &amp; climate servicesGOES-R: +242.2MFunding initiates the development and production phases for the Acquisitions &amp; Operations phase including:GOES-R represents a huge leap in capability from monitoring hurricanes to detecting severe weather over the open oceanFY07: $253M: FY08: $234.5M; FY09: $477.0MOcean Surface Vector Winds: +$3.0MIncrease beings efforts to address potential gap in ocean surface vector wind obs following NASAs*******</p></li></ul>
