The Budget Division is responsible for producing a fiscally sound budget that covers a two-year period (biennium). Instructions are provided on the current and upcoming prior biennium - as well as primary financial information and requirements used in the budgeting process.
This webpage provides information for State of Minnesota employees who work on the budget as well as general information on related budget instructions for the public. This takes the form of guidance and instructions that enable state agencies and other branches of government to successfully complete the operating and capital budget preparation and implementation processes.
Budget policies and instructions are issued periodically, as needed, by MMB to provide guidance and operational specifics, or to supplement existing statewide policies and procedures.
In June 2014, the Budget Division will begin working with state agencies to prepare the FY 2016-FY 2017 agency proposed budgets, which are required to be submitted by October 15, 2014. Budget development resources will include deadline notifications, agency-requested training, instructions, directives, manuals and more.
