Allow Budget Money To Roll Over to the Next Fiscal Year

Allow Budget Money To Roll Over to the Next Fiscal Year:

 

Each year I see government personnel hold onto their budget for 10 to 11 months, then quickly spend all of it within the last month so they can ask for more next year.

 

In most cases, the wrong things are purchased or purchased without planning or research so money is wasted and no benefit is given to the agency

 

If government managers knew that the money they saved on budget could be rolled over to next year for purchases, they would take their time, plan and buy the right things.

 

Some agencies may even ask for less money the next year since they did not spend all the money they were allocated the previous year
