Act requires that the Commission develop proposed work plans for future 
spending and that the annual Work Plan be published in the Federal

Plan was not resolved until September 2011.

Secretary of Commerce, the amended FY 2011 annual Work Plan will be 
processed concurrently with the FY 2012 Work Plan. The FY 2012 annual 
Work Plan is not included as part of this amended FY 2011 annual Work 
Plan document.
