Like other Oregon state agencies, ODOE operates under a one-biennium (two year) budget process.
Developing the ODOE Budget
We begin developing our next biennium budget about a year in advance. The budget development process has three major phases:
- Agency Request Budget - ODOE starts with the previous biennium's budget, then adds, removes, or adjusts the budget based on program needs and policy responsibilities.
- Governor's Recommended Budget - The Governor's Office and the Chief Financial Office build on and may revise the Agency Request Budget. The results are presented to the Legislature for consideration.
- Legislatively Adopted Budget - Legislative committees review proposed budgets and hold public hearings before the full Legislature votes on each agency's budget.
