USPTO Financial Tidbits

by Dennis Crouch

The USPTO’s Chief Financial Officer Tony Scardino provided a few interesting bits of information in his PPAC presentation:

  • Final fee rules are expected to be finalized and implemented at least by April 1.
  • PTO’s estimated budget is $2.5 billion, but current revenue is below that target.
  • Sequestration beyond the fiscal cliff would potentially cut $240 million from the budget. [Corrected]



One thought on “USPTO Financial Tidbits

  1. USPTO has been deemed subject to sequestration, and the potential level of sequester is $242 million.

    small typo in third bullet.
