Each year, Parliament determines the appropriations allocated to the FPS BOSA to perform its tasks. Most of this is spent on staff salaries, but it is also spent on operating costs and investments. In addition, the FPS BOSA provides grants to other organisations.

The table below shows the means in commitment appropriations made available to the FPS BOSA to carry out its operational missions.

These credits can be divided into 3 groups.
The staff appropriations, which represent 52% of the budget, comprise 2 parts:
the salary envelope provides the necessary appropriations for the execution of the staff plan. Statutory and contractual employees are paid from these funds
appropriations to pay the seconded employees of the ASBL EGOV. These are mainly IT profiles.
These appropriations have been increased due to decisions taken in the context of the 2023 budgetary control. The most important decisions concern additional funds for onboarding employees of other federal organisations to PersoPoint, the impact of the 2022 indexation and specific measures.
Operational appropriations (43%) include appropriations that the directorates-general can use. These are functional appropriations and investment appropriations:
DG Internal Support Services appropriations are used for the proper functioning of the FPS. IT expenditure accounts for an important part of this
the appropriations of the other DGs are used for the core tasks of the FPS.
The FPS BOSA is also responsible for awarding a series of optional grants through so-called grant decrees. These are mainly grants to recognised trade unions to organise training, grants to bridge the digital divide and grants to support artificial intelligence.
