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.
Personnel Compensation Increase Requested:
This allotment provides for salaries and wages paid directly to employees including paid leave and lump sum annual leave payments upon separation. This allotment also provides for compensation above basic rates including overtime, holiday pay, Sunday pay, night work differential, supervisory differential, and hazardous duty pay. The increase consists of cost of living adjustments (COLA's) for fiscal year 2001 including the annualization of the January, 2000 COLA for general schedule employees; the COLA for general schedule employees in January, 2001; and the October, 2000 COLA for wage-board employees; and within-grade increases and other pay adjustments.
Increase Requested - New Positions (7):
Funding is requested to fill 7 unfunded full-time equivalent employees for the United States Botanic Garden. For several years, the Botanic Garden has been operating in a downsized mode because of the closure of the Conservatory during its renovation. With the reopening of the Conservatory, positions that have been vacated over the past few years must be rehired to successfully manage and operate the Conservatory. At the same time, the overall mission of the Botanic Garden has re-focused on its educational efforts. The upcoming construction and opening of the National Garden will significantly increase the need and opportunities for establishing and maintaining a first class educational program for Garden visitors as well as outreach programs for people who cannot travel to the Botanic Garden. Of special importance in the latter category are school children, who will become the beneficiaries of educational programs provided under the Garden's direction. Be course
