Annual Budget Submission (FY 2012):
The President’s vision for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is to transform VA into a 21st Century organization that is Veteran-centric, results-driven, and forward-looking. VA has established management systems that ensure accountability, maximize efficiency and effectiveness, and eliminate waste while improving the delivery of high quality and timely benefits and services to Veterans.
VA’s budget request for 2012 provides the resources critical to achieving the President’s vision and will help ensure that Veterans—our clients—receive timely access to the highest quality benefits and services we can provide and which they earned through their sacrifice and service to our Nation.
The Department’s resource request for 2012 is $132.2 billion. This includes almost $61.9 billion in discretionary resources and nearly $70.3 billion in mandatory funding. Our discretionary budget request represents an increase of $5.9 billion, or nearly 10.6 percent, over the 2010 enacted level. This represents a 23% increase in discretionary budget since the President took office in 2009.
