Cuts, Consolidations, and Savings: The Budget for Fiscal Year 2015   [open pdf - 285KB]

From the Document: "As part of the President's Management Agenda, the Administration will build upon the successful efforts started in the first term to maximize the value of every taxpayer dollar while increasing productivity and the quality of services. The Budget continues efforts from the President's first-term Campaign to Cut Waste, such as reducing administrative overhead, cutting improper payments, saving on real estate costs, reforming military acquisition, and consolidating data centers. Further detail on these initiatives is provided in the Creating a 21st Century Government chapter. […] In each of the President's first three Budgets, the Administration identified, on average, more than 150 terminations, reductions, and savings proposals, totaling nearly $25 billion each year. In the 2013 and 2014 Budgets, the Administration detailed more than 200 cuts, consolidations, and savings proposals, again totaling roughly $25 billion each year. This year's Budget shows the tradeoffs and choices the Administration is making to adhere to the funding levels established in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. It includes 136 cuts, consolidations, and savings proposals, which are projected to save nearly $17 billion in 2015. The cuts, consolidation, and savings proposals this year reflect the deep spending reductions that occurred in 2013, some of which have continued in 2014, and the fact that many of the Administration's previous cuts, consolidations, and savings proposals have now been implemented."
