Like other Oregon state agencies, ODOE operates under a one-biennium (two year) budget process.
2019-21 ODOE Budget
ODOE's 2019-21 budget was passed by the Oregon Legislature on June 29, 2019. We will upload the adopted budget once it is signed by Governor Brown.
In July 2018, we held a budget open house and public meeting to provide energy resource suppliers and other interested parties with information about the work of our agency and a summary of the department’s 2019-21 Agency Request Budget:
ODOE's Budget Process
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.
