The President’s FY 2011 Continuing Resolution Budget provided no additional positions for Dodd-Frank. The FY 2012 President’s Budget provides funding for an additional 238 staff to implement Dodd-Frank. The Commission estimates and OMB concurs that approximately 398 additional staff are required to implement Dodd-Frank authorities. OMB has provided for 238 of these positions in the FY 2012 President’s Budget and acknowledged the need for another 160 FTE in FY 2013. OMB allocated the total increase estimated over two fiscal years in recognition of the challenge of on-boarding more than 400 employees in a 12 month period.
The supporting justification in the Executive Summary addresses the total staff requirement of 476 FTE ─ 316 in FY 2012 (78 for pre-Dodd Frank and 238 for Dodd-Frank) and 160 in FY 2013. The detailed budget justification tables, beginning on page 25, and following the Executive Summary reference the net increase of 78 FTE for pre-Dodd Frank and 238 FTE for Dodd-Frank to conform to OMB guidance requiring the FY 2012 President’s Budget request to be displayed as an increment over the FY 2011 appropriation.
