Abstract The FCIP is a planning tool. NCPC reviews proposed federal capital projects within the NCR for their conformity with adopted federal plans and policies and makes recommendations based on this review. The Commission transmits these recommendations to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which in turn, uses the program to inform its development of the President's annual budget. The Commissions recommendations signify an assessment of the projects contribution to the implementation of planning policies and initiatives or the support of key federal interests. Another function of the FCIP is to coordinate proposed federal agency capital projects with various NCPC-approved plans. The FCIP functions as a vital first step in the implementation of these plans by serving as an early notification and coordinating tool for interested local, regional, and state agencies. State and local governments also submit their capital improvement programs to NCPC for review. This allows the Commission to determine at an early stage, whether state and local projects negatively affect federal interests. It also ensures that related projects are coordinated, possibly avoiding delays at the time of formal review. This results in cost savings to local and state governments and overall improvements in the regional economy.
