Division of the Budget Transparency
The Division of the Budget (DOB) supports the Governor’s strong transparency objectives and endeavors to provide policy makers and the public with extensive budget and fiscal information at every step of the process. DOB’s efforts have been recognized by the National Association of State Budget Officers (NASBO) for outstanding and exceptional contributions to public budgeting and management in state government.
Throughout the year, DOB publishes updates on the status of state finances, the economy, and revenue; provides robust investor guides, and meets the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reporting demands; and budget development and implementation guidance. DOB populates the searchable OpenBudget database with extensive fiscal data for public use, holds and supports public hearings on budget and fiscal issues and press events on the submitted and enacted budgets.
