I suggest the Government revise/change the way money is spent. Every single fiscal year people rush to spend their budgets because if they don't spent it the next years budget will be reduced. There is a lot of wasted money spent every year for construction, services, commodities that are not necessarily needed at that time. Maybe let agencies know that just because they don't spend their budget that will have no affect on the next years budget or offer incentives....i.e if you save X amount of money your next years budget will include an X percent increase from that savings. If organizations save money instead of spent it all this will allow our Government to use the money where it is needed most at that time.
