DI 39503.901 Budget Instructions for FY 1988 and 1989 -- General
The purpose of this transmittal is to provide instructions and guidance for submitting your State disability determination services (DDS) and disability hearing units (DHU) budget requests for fiscal years (FYs) 1988 and 1989.
Executive Order (E.O.) 12552, dated February 25, 1986, established a government-wide program to improve the quality, timeliness and efficiency of services provided by the Federal Government. The goal of the program is to achieve a 20 percent productivity increase in key areas by 1992. Funding requests will be closely scrutinized by the Administration, the Department, and the Office of Management and Budget to assure that the disability program meets government-wide efficiency and productivity goals. It is essential, therefore, that your budget requests be adequately detailed and documented to permit an objective evaluation of the disability program. Strong documentation will allow SSA to present and justify a level of funding that will result in accurate, prompt and cost-effective disability determinations.
