What is the NOAA Budget Summary?
Strategic Plan Structure
To the Reader:
I am pleased to provide the Budget Summary for
the Department of Commerce's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
for Fiscal Year 1999.
It contains information on NOAA's activities and
strategic planning goals for members of Congress, congressional staff, media,
NOAA constituents and individuals with an interest in NOAA programs and
how they enhance the goals of the DOC.
More than a budget document, this submission is
designed to clearly set forth the return on public investment in a mission
that affects each citizen on a daily basis and ranges from the depths of
the oceans to the heights of space.
