WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Academy of Public Administration will join the American Association for Budget and Program Analysis and the Association for Budgeting and Financial Management in hosting “The Budget Act at 100: Why It Matters More Than Ever,” which will include five days of live and on-demand events held virtually June 21-25 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921.
The enactment of the Budget and Accounting Act in 1921 established most notably the process for introduction of a budget plan by the President, followed by approval from Congress. To celebrate this historic milestone, this special virtual event will feature panels and discussion groups led by top experts in the public budgeting and financial management field, including former directors of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget and U.S. Congressional Budget Office, as well as experts in budgeting technology, state and local finance, and the evolution of the budgeting relationship between Congress and the Executive branch.
