What We Do
Budget Formulation & Execution
The Division of Budget and Performance works to formulate the Service's annual budget request to Congress, make appropriated funds available to programs and regions, and ensures that funds are properly spent. The Budget Formulation Branch works with Service leadership, Congress, and the Office of Management and Budget to draft the Service's annual budget request to congress. In addition to working with program offices to make funds available for expenditure, the Budget Execution Branch monitors and reports on obligations of those funds. The Division of Budget and Performance serves the programs and regions by providing guidance and helping budget officers and staff to use funds as congressionally mandated while complying with federal appropriations laws. We work closely with program budget staff but do not determine how resources are allocated between programs.
Organizational Performance Management
Organizational performance management at FWS was developed to streamline business processes and develop a performance based culture. Our comprehensive performance management solution integrates budgeting and planning processes with financial and performance management solutions. The integrated framework aligns and cascades performance information from DOI to FWS Programs. The Service utilized a business intelligence tool that tracks and maintains the Service’s accomplishments for reporting on Government Performance Results Act (GPRA), Agency Priority Goals (APGs) and other internal program measures.
Required by GPRA Modernization Act, OMB A-11
