CBO's transparency efforts are intended to promote a thorough understanding of its work, help people gauge how estimates might change if policies or circumstances differed, and enhance the credibility of its analyses and processes.
In 2023, the agency will undertake many activities aimed at fostering transparency, such as providing additional information to help people understand the federal budget process and CBO’s role in that process and explaining the methods it uses for its analyses in several topic areas, including national security, climate change, and economic projections.
