Justification of Budget Estimates for Appropriations Committees
Fiscal Year 2005

General Statement

Each year, every Federal Agency must develop and present to Congress its budget request for the coming fiscal year (FY). All requests are in the President's budget, which is presented to Congress in February this year. At the same time, every Agency presents to Congress its own Congressional Justification, which details the Agency's recent accomplishments, how it spent the money that Congress appropriated in the past, and what the Agency hopes to accomplish with the new funds it seeks.

This Statement summarizes budget information submitted to Congress for Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Submitted as part of the budget for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Justification of Estimates for Appropriations Committees both provides background about AHRQ and lays out future priorities for it (Select for Testimony).
