Schedule of Spending

The following Schedule of Spending presented below is an overview of the resources of GSA and how they were used as of September 30, 2016 and 2015. This schedule is presented to help the public better understand what money is provided to GSA, how GSA spent that money, and to whom the money was paid. Simplified terms were used to improve understanding of budgetary accounting terminology used on the Statement of Budgetary Resources, on page 52.

What money is available to spend represents the authority that GSA was given to spend by law and the status of that authority. In this section:

  • Total Resources represents amounts approved for spending by law.
  • Less Amount Available but Not Agreed to be Spent represents amounts that GSA was allowed to spend but did not take actions to spend.
  • Less Amount Not Available to be Spent represents the amount of total budgetary resources that were not approved for spending.
  • Total Amounts Agreed to be Spent represents the amount of spending actions taken by GSA for the fiscal year. This represents contracts, orders and other legally binding obligations of the federal government to pay for goods and services when received.

How was the Money spent provides additional details, by major cost category, of the Total Amounts Agreed to be Spent.

Who did the Money go to identifies the major recipients, by federal and non-federal entities, of Amounts Agreed to be Spent.

The data contained in USASpending.gov does not align perfectly with data in the Schedule of Spending or the Statement of Budgetary Resources. Differences in timing and recording requirements contribute to this variance between amounts reported in this schedule versus GSA’s contract data presented on the USASpending.gov website. For example, USASpending.gov does not require that transactions under $25,000 be reported. In addition, data pertaining to salaries and wages of federal employees, retirement and disability benefits, utilities, leases, and intragovernmental transactions are included in the Statement of Budgetary Resources and Schedule of Spending but are not required to be reported on USASpending.gov.
