The FDA wants more money from Congress for the coming fiscal year, and more power, too.
Out of its $6.5 billion total budget, the agency is asking $676.55 million for its medical device program. That includes $571 million for the Center for Devices & Radiological Health (CDRH) and $105.4 million for the Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA).
The request includes $452 million that would come from Congress— up nearly $44 million from FY 2021 — and $224.5 million from user fees, a $4.9 million increase.
