2014 DO0 Non-Departmental
The mission of Non-Departmental is to budget for anticipated costs that were not allocated to specific agencies during the development of the proposed budget to ensure that specific use requirements are met.
Use of a Non-Departmental account is a common practice to include specific costs in the budget, while providing the flexibility to project and allocate these costs. Use of Non-Departmental improves budget formulation by ensuring that certain use criteria are met by agencies before the funds are released to those agencies.
