The budget distribution is the transfer of an amount from the budget to a lower position in a hierarchical structure.

At the lower position, you can have a free hand in determining how the budget amount received should be handled. For instance, you can distribute it again to lower positions in the hierarchy. These positions can be, for example, the positions in a capital investment program, or individual elements within a work breakdown structure.

In relation to capital investment programs, the budget distribution is the transfer of the budget from a program position to the individual measures assigned to it.
