Re-vamp budget/spending process

I suggest that fiscal year budget cycles are re-vamped for more efficient, prudent spending. We learn way too late in the game how much money we have, then have only months to spend it. Year end funds get squandered in a mad rush not to leave money 'on the table'. Possible solutions: New fiscal year? Softer ending, i.e. ability to carry funds over? Incentives to give money back, as opposed to the fear of future reduction of operational funds?
