Budget and Management Section
About Us
The Chief Financial Office Budget and Management section is the central budget office for the Executive Branch of state government. CFO BAM staff work with the Governor’s Office, Legislative committees, Legislative Fiscal Office staff, and State agencies on fiscal policy, program review, organizational issues, performance management, and the development and monitoring of agency budgets.
The section is comprised of eleven analyst positions. Analysts work with state agencies throughout the budget development process.  We help agencies apply statewide policy to build the Agency Request Budget.  We examine agency requests and make recommendations to the Governor for development of the Governor’s Budget. CFO BAM analysts represent and explain the Governor’s budget recommendations to the Legislature and other groups. 

Analysts also work with state agencies in the execution of their budgets. We monitor agency budget performance, approve or deny allotment of agency funds, analyze agency program and staffing requests, and make recommendations on agency requests to the Legislative Emergency Board.
