"On March 4, 2014, the Obama Administration submitted to Congress its budget request for FY2015. The original request for State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs totaled $48.62 billion, including $5.91 billion for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) funding. The Administration amended this request on June 27, 2014, by increasing OCO funds and updating export assistance estimates, thus raising the overall total to $50.08 billion. The Administration further amended the request in November 2014, for emergency funding to address the Ebola crisis in Africa and for civilian activities to counter the threat posed by the Islamic State (IS). The amended FY2015 request totals $53.47 billion, or 8.8% more than the FY2014-enacted level. Of the total FY2015 request, as amended, about 14.6% is designate as OCO (compared to 13.3% in FY2014) and about 5% is designated as emergency funding. About $17.18 billion is for State Department Operations and related agencies, an 8.3% increase from the FY2014 funding estimate of $15.86 billion. For Foreign Operations, the Administration requested $36.32 billion, a 7.7% increase from the FY2014 estimate of $33.72 billion. […]This report tracks the FY2015 State Department, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs appropriations process. It will be updated to reflect congressional action."
