About Budget of the United States Government

Issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Budget of the United States Government is a collection of documents that contains the budget message of the President, information about the President's budget proposals for a given fiscal year, and other budgetary publications that have been issued throughout the fiscal year. Other related and supporting budget publications are included, which may vary from year to year.

 

According to the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921 , the president must annually submit a budget to Congress by the first Monday in February. The proposed spending plan, the president's budget must show:

  • The condition of the Treasury at the end of the last completed fiscal year.

  • The estimated condition of the Treasury at the end of the current fiscal year.

  • The estimated condition of the Treasury at the end of the next fiscal year if the budget proposals are carried out.

 

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) assists the president in the creation of the president's budget by gathering data from agencies and compiling it into the final plan to be approved by the president.

 

The totals for the current and upcoming fiscal years are only projected amounts. Annual budget documents provide Congress, State and local governments, and the public with a complete description of the president's budget plans for the coming fiscal year.

 

Documents are available as Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF); however, many of the tables found in the Budget are be available for separate viewing and downloading as spreadsheets in xls, and comma delimited formats. GPO has signed and certified the PDF files to assure users that the online documents are official and authentic.

Description of Budget Documents for Fiscal Year 1998

Budget of the United States Government contains the Budget Message of the President and information on the President's 1998 budget proposals. In addition, the Budget includes a descriptive discussion of Federal programs organized by function, i.e., by the primary purpose of the activity. (This document was released on February 6, 1997.)

 

Analytical Perspectives contains analyses that are designed to highlight specified subject areas or provide other significant presentations of budget data that place the budget in perspective. The Analytical Perspectives volume includes economic and accounting analyses; information on Federal receipts and collections; analyses of Federal spending; detailed information on Federal borrowing and debt; the Budget Enforcement Act preview report; current services estimates; and other technical presentations. It also includes information on the budget system and concepts and a listing of the Federal programs by agency and account. (This document was released on February 6, 1997.)

 

Historical Tables provides data on budget receipts, outlays, surpluses or deficits, Federal debt, and Federal employment covering an extended time period--in most cases beginning in fiscal year 1940 or earlier and ending in fiscal year 2002. These are much longer time periods than those covered by similar tables in other budget documents. As much as possible, the data in this volume and all other historical data in the budget documents have been made consistent with the concepts and presentation used in the 1998 Budget, so the data series are comparable over time. (This document was released on February 6, 1997.)

 

Appendix contains detailed information on the various appropriations and funds that constitute the budget and is designed primarily for the use of the Appropriations Committee. The Appendix contains more detailed financial information on individual programs and appropriation accounts than any of the other budget documents. It includes for each agency: the proposed text of appropriations language, budget schedules for each account, new legislative proposals, explanations of the work to be performed and the funds needed, and proposed general provisions applicable to the appropriations of entire agencies or group of agencies. Supplemental and rescission proposals for the current year are presented separately. Information is also provided on certain activities whose outlays are not part of the budget totals. (This document was released on February 6, 1997.)

 

A Citizen's Guide to the Federal Budget provides general information about the budget and the budget process for the general public (This document was released on February 6, 1997.)

 

Budget System and Concepts contains an explanation of the system and concepts used to formulate the President's budget proposals. (This document was released on February 6, 1997.)

 

Principles of Budgeting for Capital Asset Acquisition presents the principles the Administration plans to use in budgeting for capital projects. (This document was released on February 6, 1997.)

 

Mid-Session Review contains a supplemental summary of the annual budget that the President transmitted to Congress earlier this year. This year's report incorporates the policy changes called for by the Balanced Budget Act and the Taxpayer Relief Act. (This document was released on September 5, 1997.)
