Performance Budget Submission for Congressional Justification
Each year Federal Agencies must develop and present to Congress their budget
requests for the coming Fiscal Year (FY). All requests are in the President's
budget, which is presented to Congress in February this year. At the same time,
every Agency presents to Congress its own Congressional Justification, which
details the Agency's recent accomplishments, how it spent the money that Congress
appropriated in the past, and what the Agency hopes to accomplish with the
new funds it seeks.
This statement summarizes budget information submitted to Congress for FY 2008 by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). As part of the budget for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the performance budget submission both provides background about AHRQ and lays out future priorities for it.
