The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) posted the Department of Defense (DoD) Senate Appropriations Bill, 2015 (Senate Report 113-211) on the DoD Congressional Budget Data website: [https://budget.dtic.mil/] and DTIC: [https://www.dtic.mil].
DTIC performs this service for all DoD-related Congressional markup activities, facilitating the timely analysis of Congressional budget decisions. The posted reports, available in PDF and Excel formats, are divided into four parts on the DTIC website: (1) Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E); (2) Procurement; (3) Operation and Maintenance; and (4) Personnel.
DTIC posts the reformatted budget data within days of its release on Congress.gov on the Library of Congress website. The budget data is thoroughly checked prior to posting its accuracy and reliability in the more flexible Excel format.
The DoD Congressional Budget Data website is just one of many DTIC resources available to the DoD RDT&E community, government agencies and DoD contractors. Additional Web-accessible budget products can be found (under Budget) on DTIC’s secure site [https://www.dtic.mil]:
* The Congressional Budget Queries website provides search and analysis tools for Military Service and Defense Agency RDT&E data. The site also includes links to Program Elements (PE).
* The RDT&E Budget Data website provides funding information on budget cycles by Budget Activity from FY 1990 to the present and by Appropriation from FY 1962. Users may export results to an Excel spreadsheet.
* The Research and Development Descriptive Summaries (RDDS) website furnishes narrative information on RDT&E programs and PE numbers within the DoD.
DTIC’s mission is “to provide essential technical RDT&E information rapidly, accurately and reliably to support our DoD customers’ needs.” A DoD Field Activity, DTIC is under the leadership of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics and reports to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering.
