AGENCY BUDGET NOTES
The Agency Budget Notes (ABN) contributes to making more informed reviews and deliberation of the national budget submitted by the President to Congress. The ABN provides budget-related information on agency plans and programs, physical accomplishments and financial management of prior year’s appropriations. This publication also highlights the results of program evaluation by other research institutions, as well as the audit findings and status of compliance of agencies to recommendations of the Commission on Audit. The ABN examines the past, current and proposed budget in terms of allocation by program/project, type of expenditure (i.e., current expenditures and capital outlay), and shares of regional offices.
