101.2 (H) Office of the Chief Financial Officer

 

101.2 (H) Office of the Chief Financial Officer

 

The Office of the Chief Financial Officer is headed by the Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), who advises the Register on all fiscal, acquisition, budget, and financial policy matters of the U.S. Copyright Office. The Office of the CFO supervises the Copyright Office’s appropriations process, budget execution, acquisitions and procurements, fee processing, statutory royalty investments and disbursements, financial controls, and resource planning. This Office interacts with every other senior management office that reports to the Register and frequently coordinates with management of the Library of Congress.

 

The Office of the CFO also oversees the Licensing Division. This division administers certain statutory licenses set forth in the Copyright Act. It collects royalty payments and examines statements of account for the cable statutory license (17 U.S.C. § 111), the satellite statutory license for retransmission of distant television broadcast stations (17 U.S.C. § 119), and the statutory license for digital audio recording technology (17 U.S.C. §§ 1001-1010). It also accepts and records documents associated with the use of the mechanical statutory license (17 U.S.C. § 115).
