  37. 37. Step 3: BUDGET EXECUTION ◦ The GAA serves as the legal basis which allows for the use of funds from the national treasury for specified expenditure items provided therein. However, the existence of a GAA alone does not imply that agencies can start utilizing and drawing funds to finance their programs and activities. Agencies need to secure an allotment to be able to obligate amounts specified in their budgets; cash allocation should also be secured before disbursements can be made to settle these obligations. The budget execution phase is concerned with these operational aspects of budgeting which facilitates the translation of appropriations to disbursements, or more specifically the release of funds through allotments and Notice of Cash Allocation (NCA).
