Like other Oregon state agencies, ODOE operates under a one-biennium (two year) budget process.
Developing ODOE's 2019-21 Budget
Thanks to those who joined us on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 for our open
house and public meeting to provide energy resource suppliers and other
interested parties with
information about the work of the agency, as well as a summary of the department’s
2019-21 Agency Request Budget.
After an hour-long open house from 1 - 2 p.m., we held a public meeting about our budget from 2 - 4 p.m.:
At the open house, members of the public learned about ODOE's program divisions, activities, and budget. Staff from each of our program divisions were available for informal conversations about our mission and work.
The public meeting began at 2 p.m., and included time for us to listen to oral comments from the public.
The meeting was also available via teleconference and webinar for those who could not attend in person.
Written comments related to the budget may be submitted by July 20, 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
