Bureau of Resource Management

The Department’s budgetary resources as of September 30, 2008 and 2007 were $38.8 billion and $31.5 billion. Total resources were up $7.3 billion or 24 percent, in 2008 over 2007. Most of that increase, $5.7 billion, is a result of increased budget authority from appropriations and spending authority from offsetting collections granted by Congress and authorized by OMB. Budget authority and collections comprised 83 percent of year-end resources. The Department obligated $30.7 billion of the $38.8 billion total resources in 2008, an increase of $5.5 billion, 22 percent, over 2007. The percent of the total resources obligated remained stable at 79 percent in 2008 versus 81 percent in 2007.
