Spanish term or phrase: rezago presupuestal
phrase found in a list of studies for a military officer from Colombia

English translation:lagging budget
Explanation:
Some entities (mostly governmental) have a alloted amount of funds and for some reason or another they see themselves falling behind in the spending. The results are that by the end of the fiscal period they still have much more money than they are supposed to and try to spend it in just weeks, days or even hours to comply with government regulations.

Reserva presupuestal is the amount of a budget that has been alloted and not spent yet...
I think there is a slight confusion of terms..Rezago is exactly what I explained...

neutral  Patricia Rosas: isn't what you describe a "reserva presupuestal" (unspent budgetary funds)? Roberto: My apologies . You're right that it is funds that are alloted (see the note I'm adding above), but your first exp. confused me.
