2/21/2012 - WASHINGTON -- Under the Fiscal 2013 President's Budget Request announced Feb. 13, Air Force Reserve Command is slated to receive an annual operating budget of $5.062 billion starting in October.

The FY13 budget includes $1.885 billion for military personnel, $3.166 billion for operations and maintenance to pay for air operations, service support and civilian pay, and $11 million for military construction.

The desired reserve personnel end strength is 70,500 reservists - 900 fewer than FY12 request.

The manning levels for the new fiscal year are 2,888 full-time Active Guard Reserve members, 67,612 full-time Air Reserve Technicians, traditional Reservists, Individual Mobilization Augmentees, as well as other categories of paid and non-paid Reservists. Not included in that total are 452 Regular Air Force Airmen and 4,015 civilian employees.

The FY13 budget request ensures Air Force reservists are trained and prepared to support Air Force and combatant command requirements through training, preparedness and modernization.

The Air Force Reserve is committed to the secretary of defense's efficiency agenda by leveraging new technology, using better business practices and improving its force alignment to maintain a strategic force to meet national defense needs.

Command officials said the Air Force Reserve is ready to execute the Air Force's guidance to meet real-world requirements, reduce excess, be more efficient, squeeze costs, and make the necessary tough choices.

The Air Force Reserve budget is about 4.6 percent of the Air Force's $110.1 billion allocation.
