Three statewide information systems support the state's primary budget processes: Budget Planning & Analysis System, Capital Budget System, and Fiscal Note Tracking System.
The executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government use these systems to prepare operating budgets, capital budgets, and fiscal notes.
The three statewide budget systems are managed by Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) budget operations unit and are independent, web-based application systems accessed through the Statewide Administrative Portal. The three systems are secure systems. Agency staff responsible for preparation of the operating budget, capital budget, and fiscal notes must request access to each system by submitting a new user authorization form.
The Budget Planning & Analysis System (BPAS) is used to collect and present historical, current, and projected budget data. Also, BPAS is used to produce the Governor’s proposed biennial budget and proposed supplemental budget changes in the off-year after the biennial budget is enacted.
