ORIED Monitoring Federal Budget Outlook

Congress passed a short-term spending bill this afternoon that will keep the federal government funded through December 3, 2021. The Office of Research, Innovation, and Economic Development will continue to monitor activities in Washington, DC, until a final budget is passed.

ORIED has published a Federal Budget Outlook website and will post new information as it becomes available, as we have in previous years. We will also disseminate information through a variety of other mechanisms, including ORIED social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter) and the Catalyst newsletter.

If you have questions, contact Jean Mercer, associate vice chancellor for research administration (, 865-974-3466).
