The Bureau of Budget coordinates and prepares the Department’s Legislative Budget Requests and provides technical assistance and support for the development of the Capital Improvement Plan and Long Range Program Plan in accordance to the instructions provided by the Executive Office of the Governor (EOG), House of Representatives and Senate. Throughout the legislative appropriations process the Bureau of Budget is available to assist EOG, the House and Senate Appropriations staff on technical issues affecting the Department's budget request, provides responses to budgetary inquiries and issues that might arise during the legislative session and tracks all funding decisions through the Conference process.

Once the Governor signs the Conference Report, the appropriations for the new fiscal year are established and become the General Appropriations Act. The Bureau of Budget develops and allocates the Annual Approved Operating Budget to the different program areas within the Department and provides support and technical assistance throughout the fiscal year by monitoring and managing expenditures and preparing interim budget adjustments, as necessary to ensure that the Department does not exceed its authorized budget levels. The Bureau is also responsible for managing the cash and balancing all trust funds authorized by the Legislature and preparing all state and federal reports.
