Figure 8. Net Outlays (dollars in millions) (Text description)

Figure 8 is a two-axis line graph that reflects the difference in outlays, PHS evaluation funds, budget authority funds, and total budget figures, for the 11-year period ending with FY 2003. The X-axis is a measure of time and is divided into 11 equal segments, each representing one year from FY 1993 through FY 2003 (left to right). The Y-axis is a measure of dollars (in millions) and is marked into equal $50 million increments, from -$100 million to $350 million. Charted on the graph are four lines. One depicts AHRQ's annual outlays, another depicts collected PHS evaluation funds, a third line depicts the Agency's budget authority funds, and the last line represents AHRQ's budget total.

The proportion of PHS evaluation funds to AHRQ's total budget has increased steadily over the 11-year period, resulting in a progressive decrease of AHRQ's net outlays and a negative outlay in FY 2002. The graph does indicate a $270 million spike in AHRQ's FY 2003 outlay, due to the collection of PHS evaluation funds over a three-year period, instead of in the same fiscal year the funds were appropriated.
