manimal2878: cig-mkr: Like any government agency they have to spend all the money in their budget or they won't get the same allocation for next year. Nothing new.I hear people say this all the time, (especially ex-military guys, so maybe they achuarry are given blank checks) but that's not how any budget process I've experienced works.We have to submit our projected costs about a year in advance based on the actual projected cost of the projects we want to complete. The only way there would be money not spent is if we didn't do a project or something came in under budget. But it's not like we can spend that money on something else. If you aren't spending the money for what was requested in advance it basically doesn't exist; there is no "extra.".
