This bill requires Federal agencies, or components of Federal agencies, to post their congressional budget justification materials on the agency website. The bill also requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to maintain a public website that includes the links to the congressional budget justification materials for each agency that submits them each fiscal year, along with additional relevant information to provide transparency into the budget justification process. The bill also requires the Department of the Treasury (Treasury) to post the congressional budget justification materials for each Federal agency, or component of a Federal agency, on USAspending.gov. In addition, the bill requires OMB, in consultation with Treasury, to establish policies and issue guidance and standards to Federal agencies and components of Federal agencies to ensure budget justification materials will be produced and made available in an accessible and user-friendly format."
