The FY 2011 budget sked

Because the focus of everyone’s attention was balancing FYs 2009 and 2010, the FY 2011 budget has gotten a late start.   By this time under normal circumstances, the budget instructions had been drafted and were being reviewed, targets being developed, and the kickoff planned.

This year, the budget instruction development will begin shortly.   OBP is working on the instructions and finishing up FYs 2009 and 2010 simultaneously.   As it stands right now, the instructions will be delivered to agencies by mid-September.

No news on the delivery of the targets but they are less important this year in some ways since everyone knows that there will be no increases.
