The OMB allowance for FY 1982 is $176,201,000, including $24,135,000 for Quadrangle Construction, and $152,066,000 for all other appropriations, or only some $1.2 million below the planning target provided by OMB last year.

In the Salaries and Expense appropriation, OMB approved an additional $13.3 million and 35 positions over fiscal year 1981. This increase will provide necessary funds for pay costs, rent and utilities, inflation, Museum Support Center-related maintenance and equipment costs including staffing and equipment for the conservation and training activities at the Center, exhibitions and performances, research, collections management, administration, facilities management, and protection services. Among the items denied by OMB were the over-target requests of $10.0 million to establish a major acquisitions program and $458,000 for the one-time purchase of photocopier equipment. The full amount of the Institution's request were allowed for the Special Foreign Currency Program and for construction and renovation accounts, including the $24 million for the Quadrangle. If approved by Congress, this sum will represent the first appropriation of federal funds for the project.
