The Federal Communications Commission had a $450 million budget in fiscal 2014, which ends September 30. Among other things, the FCC's 2015 budget request includes $9.2 million for "modernization of aging IT systems."

"About 40% of the FCC's application portfolio is more than 10 years old, and 70% of the IT portfolio depends on [deprecated], legacy technologies," the budget request states. The FCC also requested an extra $625,000 for Enforcement Bureau equipment.

The FCC is funded entirely by regulatory fees and auction revenue, but Congress and the President decide how much the commission can spend.
