OMB Releases President's Fiscal Year 2020 Budget Request
By CHIPS Magazine - March 12, 2019
White House Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Russ Vought released the President’s Fiscal Year 2020 Budget of the United States Government March 11. “A Budget for a Better America: Promises Kept. Taxpayers First” outlines this Administration’s key funding priorities, which include promoting a healthy American economy and maintaining a strong national defense.

"Government’s fundamental responsibility is to protect the American people, the homeland, and the American way of life. While America possesses enduring national strengths, it face an era of increased strategic competition, global challenges, and erosion of the U.S. comparative military advantage. To preserve peace through strength, the budget provides for increased end strength, bolsters the nation’s global force posture, and invests in the capabilities and domains critical to future conflicts, such as space, artificial intelligence, and hypersonics,” according to the release.

“In today’s digital age, the Federal Government continues to operate under outdated technology and antiquated processes, which frustrates the American people and the Federal workforce. …Through IT modernization initiatives, as well as efforts to build a modern workforce, the Budget will create new platforms for delivering services to the American people.”
