The following is the 2012 Federal Bench and Bar Fund Projected Expenditure Plan.
Monies deposited in the Bench and Bar Fund constitute non-appropriated funds derived from annual dues that are collected from federal bar members and from the interest accruing on such balances. A Spending Plan is developed each calendar year for any anticipated projects and associated expenses, as well as annual recurrent expenses.
Guidelines and procedures for administration and operation of the Bench and Bar Fund were originally established by the Court in 1991; for further detail, see Misc. No. 91-09.
