The Budget Division is the central budget office for Minnesota state government. Budget staff work with the Governor's Office, legislative committees, legislative fiscal staffs and state agencies on fiscal policy, program review, performance management and developing and monitoring state agency budgets.
Executive budget officers (EBOs) help agencies apply statewide policies and instructions to build operating budget requests. They review agency requests and make recommendations to the Governor leading to the Governor's proposed budget. The state budget director and division staff also represent and explain the governor's budget recommendations to the legislature and other groups.
Budget planning and operations staff manage related budget systems and plan, organize and provide access to financial and supporting data to support policy development and decision making - monitoring agencies' budgets for compliance with legislative intent, applicable laws and financial policies - as well as adherence to sound financial management principles.
