    • This establishes guidance on the level of budget authority, outlays, surplus or deficit, revenue, and debt
  • May request the Secretary and the heads of agencies to testify before committees on the Budget Request. Requests are mostly made by the appropriation committees.
  • The House and Senate resolve any differences in their respective bills in a special conference committee made up of members from both legislative bodies. Once compromise has been reached, Congress adopts the budget resolution concurrently.
  • Departments and Agencies also write briefing papers; coordinate responses to advance questions; answer Questions for the Record (QFRs); prepare transcript inserts, and help identify and assign reporting requirements
appropriations act september october by
Appropriations ActSeptember-October, BY
  • An Appropriations Bill provides the legal authority needed to spend or obligate U.S. Treasury funds. The appropriation bill must be enacted prior to the start of a new fiscal year (October 1). Failure to meet this deadline causes the need for temporary short-term funding (Continuing Resolution), or results in a federal government shut-down.
  • House and Senate appropriation committees meet independently to consider 12 appropriations bills
  • Both houses “Conference” to resolve outstanding differences
  • If the President signs the legislation, it becomes law
  • The appropriation acts establish the three main components of the appropriation: time, purpose, and amount

  • Agencies most notify Congress when reprogramming funds:
    • Create or eliminate a program, project, office or activity
    • Increase funds of a program, project, or activity that were denied or restricted by Congress
    • Repurpose funds that were specified by Congress to go towards a stated purpose

other terms in budget
Other Terms in Budget
  • Apportionment: is a plan, approved by OMB, to spend resources provided by one of the annual appropriations acts, a supplemental appropriations act, a continuing resolution, or a permanent law (mandatory appropriations). Resources are apportioned by Treasury Account Fund Symbol (TAFS). The apportionment identifies amounts available for obligation and expenditure. It specifies and limits the obligations that may be incurred and expenditures made (or makes other limitations, as appropriate) for specified time periods, programs, activities, projects, objects, or any combination thereof.
  • Obligationmeans a binding agreement that will result in outlays, immediately or in the future. Budgetary resources must be available before obligations can be incurred legally.
  • Commitment: An administrative reservation of funds for obligation. For example when an organization goes out with a request for proposal on a contract, the funds are often “committed” or set aside.
  • Outlay or Expenditure: means a payment to liquidate an obligation (other than the repayment of debt principal). Outlays generally are equal to cash disbursements but also are recorded for cash-equivalent transactions, such as Federal employee salaries and debt instruments. Outlays are the measure of Government spending.
