The Executive Budget includes economic data, summary information on revenues, expenditures, recommended budget, and authorized positions as well as key financial information (as to means of financing and expenditures) and key performance information for budget units and their programs. 
The Executive Budget Supporting Document includes expanded program financial information as well as program narratives (identifying program mission and goals), both key and supporting objectives and performance indicators, general performance data (trends and external comparisons), and explanatory notes for each program.
