About the Budget
National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS)
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
The NCHS budget for FY 2014 was $155,397,000. This amount includes approximately $15,300,000 million for the Working Capital Fund. The Working Capital Fund was a new mechanism implemented in FY 2014 for providing business services that support CDC programs on a fee for service basis. NCHS pays for business services out of its budget, where in the past these services, such as human resources, IT services, and financial management, were funded centrally.
The FY 2015 President's Budget request of $155,397,000 for NCHS is level with FY 2014 enacted. This amount includes approximately $15,300,000 million for the WCF. The FY 2015 budget requests $30 million in Prevention and Public Health Funds (PPHF) for Healthcare Surveillance/Health Statistics, of which NCHS would receive a portion, estimated at $26.4 million.
For more information on this request, see the FY 2015 CDC Congressional Justification. The NCHS budget narrative can be found on pages 208-211; the PPHF request is on page 222-223.
