The Combined Statement of Budgetary Resources (SBR) provides data on the budgetary resources available to the Department and the status of these resources at the fiscal year-end. The SBR displays the key budgetary equation: Total Budgetary Resources equals Total Status of Budgetary Resources.

The Department’s budgetary resources consist primarily of appropriations, spending authority from offsetting collections, unobligated balances brought forward from prior years, and other resources. The “Trend in Total Budgetary Resources” bar chart highlights the budgetary trend over the fiscal years 2011 through 2016. A comparison of the two most recent years shows a $3.4 billion (5 percent) increase in total resources since 2015. This change resulted mainly from increases in appropriations ($0.6 billion), offsetting collections ($0.5 billion), other resources ($0.4 billion), and unobligated balances ($1.9 billion).
