FERC FY 2015 CONGRESSIONAL PERFORMANCE BUDGET REQUEST AND FY 2014-2018 STRATEGIC PLAN: Last week, FERC submitted its FY 2015 Congressional Performance Budget Request seeking $327,277,000 and its FY 2014 – FY 2018 Strategic Plan. The budget request is an increase of 7.4% over the FY 2014 request, although 6.6% of that is attributable to a building consolidation effort. FERC reports this is the first request for an increase in resources since 2011. Posted by Brian Heslin, Mar. 12, 2014.
