The first part of the fiscal year (July) is always a busy time for our budget folks. The new fiscal year requires a lot of data entry, cross-checks, analysis and review. It was a busy time of year even when we had several people in the budget office.  This year we got the job done in the same time with fewer people- thanks to good organization, hard work- and some assistance from program financial folks in several areas of the Department.  Thanks for the team effort.
