2013 Federal Budget Survey
Interrupted Journey: The Road to Better Budgeting
This year’s results revealed that federal budget professionals are frustrated with a budget process that is not working as it should and could. A follow up to the 2011 survey report, The Road Forward, this year’s report found that budgeteers are working hard but are not making much progress. Budgeteers are not so much providing financial leadership as they are trying simply to minimize damage. The report also found that budgeting today is more critical than ever because of the widening gap between what that government wants to do and what it can afford to do.
