FY 2009 Budget of the United States Government

The Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2009 is now available online from the United States Government Printing Office (GPO). The budget is a collection of documents containing the President's budget message, information about the President's budget proposals for a given fiscal year, and other budgetary publications that have been issued throughout the fiscal year. Supporting documents such as the Economic Report of the President are also included. For the first time GPO and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) have worked together to create a digitally signed and certified PDF (Portable Document Format) to assure users of the authenticity of the electronic PDF documents. Tables in the budget can be downloaded as PDFs or as spreadsheets in xls and comma delimited formats.

Paper and CD-ROM copies of the budget will be distributed this month to depository libraries and are also available for purchase from the U.S. Government Online Bookstore.
