SSURF Statement on FY24 budget themes

FY24 Statement to OMB & OSTP Leadership

December 7, 2022: The Society for Science at User Research Facilities (SSURF) wrote to Shalanda Young, Director of the Office of Management and Budget and Arati Prabhakar, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to bring attention to the threats facing our competitiveness and innovation leadership without additional and sustained federal investment in domestic national scientific user facilities.  We are deeply concerned we will fall behind other countries and relinquish our long held leadership in extremely specialized and sought-after, oversubscribed, scientific infrastructure. To avoid this threat and to ensure U.S. international leadership, SSURF urges the Administration to fully fund our nation’s federal national scientific user facilities in President Biden’s FY 2024 budget request to Congress.
