Executive Order 13893: Increasing Government Accountability for Administrative Actions by Reinvigorating Administrative PAYGO [open pdf - 270KB]
Alternate Title: EO 13893: Increasing Government Accountability for Administrative Actions by Reinvigorating Administrative PAYGO
From the Purpose, Section 1: "In May 2005, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) implemented a budget-neutrality requirement on executive branch administrative actions affecting mandatory spending. This mechanism, commonly referred to as 'Administrative pay-as-you-go' (Administrative PAYGO), requires each executive department and agency (agency) to include one or more proposals for reducing mandatory spending whenever an agency proposes to undertake a discretionary administrative action that would increase mandatory spending. In practice, however, agencies have applied this requirement with varying degrees of stringency, sometimes resulting in higher mandatory spending. Accordingly, institutionalizing and reinvigorating Administrative PAYGO through this order is a prudent approach to keeping mandatory spending under control."
