The United States Department of State’s Agency Financial Report (AFR) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 provides an overview of the Department’s financial and performance data to help Congress, the President and the public assess our stewardship over the resources entrusted to us. See www.state.gov/s/d/rm/rls/perfrpt/2009/index.htm.
The AFR is the first of a series of three reports for agencies choosing to produce a separate AFR, an integrated Performance Budget, and Summary of Performance and Financial information. The reporting schedule includes: (1) an Agency Financial Report issued in December 2009; (2) a complete agency Annual Performance Report for FY 2009 and Annual Performance Plan (APP) for FY 2011 as part of the FY 2011 Congressional Budget Justification (CBJ), State’s budget request to Congress, in February 2010; and (3) a Summary of Performance and Financial Information to be released in February 2010. The last report will be produced jointly with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
We hope these reports provide a succinct and easily understood analysis of citizens’ resources invested to conduct U.S. foreign policy so the reader can better understand the successes and challenges in implementing programs that pursue our country’s foreign policy agenda.
