OMB Watch - OMB Account-level Data on Government Spending , 2005 Budget
The 2005 Budget submitted by the president last week only contained partial information for spending over the next 5 years. The spending proposals for specific programs are contained in a 1,000 page Office of Management and Budget (OMB) computer run that was provided to some members of Congress, but was not included in the budget documents originally made available to the public.
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has obtained these data and shared it with OMB Watch to post on our website.
The first part of the document contains summaries by "category." The rest of the document goes through the budget, by account, showing FY 2003 spending levels and 2004 through 2009 proposed policy. For each account, the run shows both the OMB current services baseline and the President's policy amount.
