Office of Budget & Analysis
The Office of Budget and Analysis (OBA), is responsible for coordinating, preparing and presenting the City's operating budget. The budget provides an overview of the fiscal and operational status of the City; highlighting policy issues, decisions and proposed changes in service levels.

OBA performs and reviews numerous fiscal analyses as well as program and policy proposals for fiscal impact accuracy. OBA is responsible for updating the City's indirect cost allocation plan that is used to determine the total cost of providing various programs and services. In conjunction with this, OBA frequently assists departments in updating fees and contracts to ensure accuracy and cost recovery.

OBA provides ongoing analytical support on various operational and staffing issues throughout the City and participates in a number of special projects and studies.
