Data Element


The year of enactment for the appropriation. This data element is used to classify appropriations by the calendar year that the appropriations were enacted.

If availability continues in fiscal years subsequent to the initial fiscal year of availability, the appropriation method for the appropriation becomes carry-over or re-appropriation. The year of appropriation coding, however, will not change.

Valid Values:

Calendar year for which appropriation was originally enacted.
