About Us

The Office of Budget's primary responsibility is helping to prepare and defend the Department's annual budget request. The Office also supports long-range planning, conducts Department-level budget execution activities, supports the development of performance measures and annual performance plans, and helps Bureaus implement Commerce budget procedures and policies.

Each summer, the Office analyzes Bureau budget requests and identifies issues, and provides information to help Departmental officials make resource decisions which are incorporated into the following documents:

  • The Secretary's Budget Request to OMB (in early September), and
  • The President's Budget Request to Congress (early February)

During the first week in February, the Office prepares a Budget-in-Brief summarizing the President's Request.
