About OBF

The Office of Budget and Finance (OBF) plans, directs, and coordinates the financial management activities of the National Cancer Institute and advises the Office of the Director and other senior staff on the management of financial and personnel resources.

OBF manages the Institute budget process by providing guidance to Institute staff on budget preparation and management; coordinating the preparation and submission of the Institute's budget to NIH, DHHS, OMB and the President; explaining and defending the budget; and monitoring budget execution.

OBF administers the Institute's budgetary, accounting, and funds control systems, assuring that they are compatible with NIH and Departmental accounting systems and provide Institute management and staff with reliable accounting, financial management and personnel resource utilization data.

OBF also performs analysis and provides information on the historic, current, and prospective financial status of the Institute for briefing and reporting purposes.

OBF participates in Congressional budget hearings by preparing background, briefing and source material for the Institute Director and others appearing before committees or examiners, by participating at budget hearings as part of the Institute contingent on an as needed basis, and by coordinating responses to questions concerning the financial management of the Institute from Congress and others.
