and wash down exterior steps and sweep parking areas and streets, plant bulbs and annual flowers, remove leaves in autumn, salt and sand
streets and sidewalks in preparation for snow and ice accumulations, remove snow and ice, and clean storm drains. The Capitol Grounds
employees also repair and sharpen their gardening tools, and perform routine repair and preventive maintenance on their equipment. Daily
or weekly refuse removal from the legislative buildings is the responsibility of a private contractor. In recent years, certain areas that were
previously planted with annual flowers have been planted with perennial flowers.

The Capitol Grounds staff also coordinate maintenance and improvements projects with other Federal agencies, the District of
Columbia government, and private sector contractors whose work adjacent to or near the properties under the jurisdiction of the Architect
requires scheduling coordination with Capitol Grounds personnel. Such projects include infrastructure repairs and modifications, street
paving, signage, and restriping traffic lanes and parking spaces. A recent example is the Japanese American Memorial for which ground
was broken in the fall of 1999 which borders the Capitol Grounds.

The Architect performs his duties under authority of the Acts of August 15, 1876 (19 Stat. 147), March 4, 1929 (45 Stat. 1694),
and July 31, 1946 (60 Stat. 718), as amended by the Act of October 20, 1967 (81 Stat. 275) and the Act of December 24, 1973 (87 Stat.
825-830).

Capitol Grounds

Fiscal Year 2001 Budget Estimate

OPERATING BUDGET

In fiscal year 2001 the budget request for the Architect of the Capitol is presented again as an Operating Budget and a Capital
Budget. The Operating Budget for this appropriation is comprised of all costs associated with the daily care, maintenance and operation
of the facilities and activities under the jurisdiction of the Architect of the Capitol. The budget justification for the Operating Budget
includes a summary schedule explanatory statement and the associated schedule, followed by the Operating Allotment narratives. The
narratives describe the purpose of all operating allotments funded in this appropriation. When changes have been requested for fiscal year
-2001, the amount and justification for those changes appear in italics.

For the fiscal year 2001 budget justifications, detailed narrative descriptions and other information are provided for all annual
operating budget allotments. This narrative is supported by a table that includes the following data: the allotment code number (Object
Code), allotment title (Item), and the last funding level before that allotment was increased or decreased to the fiscal year 1999 level
(Allotment before FY 99). A two-column designation follows that indicates in the first column a letter code whether that amount was
initiated (I), the year changed to the fiscal year 1999 level (C), or has been continued at that base amount (B) since 1991. The second
column will indicate for those allotments that have changed before fiscal year 1999 the year of that change. The next several columns will
indicate funding levels for fiscal years 1999, 2000 and 2001, as well as the obligations for fiscal year 1999. In accordance with sound
financial management practice, these allotments are reviewed and adjusted to reflect changing needs. Increases that cannot be absorbed
from other operating areas are requested through the budget process.
