Steps in the process an agency uses to obtain funds are explained for budget formulation and execution. Each step is linked to pages where actions are explained. A generic Federal agency is used to explain the steps and actions ("agency" does not refer to a specific actual governmental agency unless so stated). Fiscal year 2020 (FY 2020) is used to illustrate when actions can be expected. A hypothetical schedule for the FY 2020 budget process is also provided.
