As it stands now, each agency is penalized if it does not spend its budget in two ways: (1) it loses what's left in the budget and (2) will very likely receive a smaller budget the following year. As a result, each agency has a strong incentive to spend every dollar. Offer agencies incentives to save money such as no loss of budget savings, etc. (an economist could come up with better ones than I).
