Budget Setup and Maintenance

The FMS team is ready and able to provide budget setup and maintenance services for our customers. These services include distributing legally apportioned resources within the financial system to support missions, programs, and other objectives. Agencies sometimes refer to this budget hierarchy as the “operating plan” or “spend plan.”

Other budget setup and maintenance activities that result in “budget transactions” include, but are not limited to, recording appropriations, allotments, allowances, allocations, reprogramming actions, estimated reimbursements, budgetary revenue, continuing resolutions, rescissions, cancellations, and transfers. These transactions establish limits in the system to restrict obligations and expenditures to the amounts authorized by law.
