Budget Office

The Budget Office provides technical expertise on the allocation of state resources to best accomplish the goals and objectives of the Governor's Office of Information Technology. This includes being responsible for the strategic planning and preparation of the OIT annual budget and implementing it after it is passed by the General Assembly and signed by the Governor. The Budget Office also tracks legislative action on OIT's budget, including special bills.

The Budget Office reports on statewide IT Spend. It provides monthly service consumption reporting and additional data reports. The BudgeT Office works with Agency IT Directors and budget and financial officers to ensure that this key data is provided to and reviewed with the appropriate senior level management in the agencies to facilitate better management of state IT resources.

Furthermore, this office reviews all IT-related budget change requests prior to submitting those requests to the Office of State Planning and Budgeting (OSPB) for consideration. This review allows OIT to determine if there are consolidation/collaboration opportunities and to validate that the request supports the state's IT strategic direction while also supporting the business needs of the departments. Once reviewed with the requesting department, and if approved, OIT forwards these requests to OSPB for consideration.

The budget process involves planning and implementation across three fiscal years. For example, planning for the fiscal year 2019-20 budget begins in fiscal year 2017-18. See below for supporting documentation that fully lays out the budgeting process.
