On May 2, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) partially released its analysis of fiscal year 2014 (FY14) requested budget. It found that the energy research programs at the Department of Energy saw a 45 percent increase from anticipated FY13 levels. The proposed FY14 budget would allocate $3.1 billion while AAAS estimated the Department received $2 billion in FY13 for research. The White House has not released FY13 allocations because the Continuing Resolution and sequestration led to budget uncertainty. The Office of Science and Technology Policy recently reported that the administration would provide $2.7 billion to 13 agencies as part of the U.S. Global Change Research Program; that allocation is up 6 percent from FY12 levels. Despite the increases over FY12 and FY13 levels, the AAAS warned that science funding as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) has drastically fallen since 1970. The full AAAS report will be released in about six weeks.
