BOARD OF DIRECTORS
CORPORATION FOR PUBLIC BROADCASTING
Monday, June 28, 2021
CPB management has developed a request for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for an advance appropriation in support of the public broadcasting system for FY 2025 and the public broadcasting interconnection system and other infrastructure for FY 2023; and
CPB management has briefed the Board of Directors and is consulting legislative staff on a legislative request to shift interconnection operational costs from CPB’s System Support “6%” fund because the separate interconnection and infrastructure appropriation now funds both capital and operating costs of the television and radio interconnection systems; and
The Board of Directors has been briefed on CPB’s proposed monetary and legislative requests, and CPB management has consulted with public broadcasting system members to ensure a broad spectrum of system needs for providing service was considered; and
CPB seeks to comply with the confidentiality of the OMB annual budget process by not releasing its budget request figures publicly until the President has delivered his budget request to Congress.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED,
The Board of Directors authorizes CPB management to submit CPB’s general budget request for FY 2025, an interconnection system and infrastructure budget request for FY 2023, and a legislative request to OMB, provided that the legislative request to shift interconnection operational costs from the System Support fund to the separate interconnection and infrastructure appropriation shall be subject to the Board’s final review and authorization before its submission to Congress.
