OMB Final Sequestration Report to the President and Congress for Fiscal Year 2013 (Final Sequestration Report):

On April 9, 2013, the OMB delivered its Final Sequestration Report for Fiscal Year 2013 to the President and Congress. The report was prepared pursuant to section 254 of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (BBEDCA) as amended.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is required to report whether enacted legislation will exceed or has exceeded the caps on discretionary budget authority for each fiscal year. The caps on budget authority are currently set at $1,043 billion, broken out by security programs ($684 billion) and non-security programs ($359 billion). CBO’s own estimation in March 2013 was that a sequestration will not be required for 2013. This is a tool that the OMB has available to use when determining if a sequestration is required and how the proportional cuts are to be made.
