The mission of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is to license and regulate the Nation’s civilian use of radioactive materials to provide reasonable assurance of adequate protection of public health and safety, to promote the common defense and security, and to protect the environment.
The NRC’s FY 2024 budget request, including the Office of the Inspector General, is $1,006.4 million, including 2,948.9 full-time equivalents. This request represents an increase of $63.2 million or approximately 6.7 percent as compared to FY 2023 enacted, primarily to support increased salaries and benefits consistent with Office of Management and Budget guidance. The budget request proposes the use of $27.1 million in carryover to offset the Nuclear Reactor Safety budget resulting in a gross budget authority of $979.2 million.  The NRC plans to recover $823.2 million from fees, resulting in a net budget authority of $156.0 million.  This is an increase of $19.0 million as compared to FY 2023 enacted, primarily to support advanced reactor regulatory activities, international technical assistance, and the minority serving institutions grant program.
The Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG’s) component of the FY 2024 proposed budget is $18.6 million, including 73.0 FTE, of which $17.1 million is for auditing and investigation activities for NRC programs, and $1.5 million is for the auditing and investigation activities of the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board (DNFSB). This is an increase of $2.9 million or approximately 18.3 percent as compared to FY 2023 enacted.
