The Budget Division assists the Chief Financial Officer in exercising good stewardship of public resources by providing capital and operating budget oversight, financial analysis and evaluation, decision support, and assisting with budget modifications for the Mayor, Board of Commissioners, County Administrator's Office and department managers. The Budget Division is committed to improving the transparency of the Unified Government’s budgetary information to our citizens and stakeholders through our Open Data portal.

The Budget Division also:

  • Directs the preparation of the annual operating budget and five-year capital maintenance and improvement plan (CMIP)
  • Performs research, trend analysis and problem solving
  • Performance measurement collection and reporting
  • Long range financial planning
  • Grant setup
  • Conducts special research and responds to information requests

Early each year, Finance Department and Budget Division staff begin working on the next year's operating budget in order to present a proposed document to the Unified Government Board of Commission (UGBOC) in July. The UGBOC schedules several budget work sessions to discuss and review the budget before it is adopted by the Commission.
