A budget transfer changes line-item appropriations within a particular fund without changing the fund total. All
transfer actions are reviewed by the BMS. Transfer authority is as follows: (1) department heads may approve
transfers up to $10,000, (2) transfer requests between $10,000 and $50,000 require the approval of the City
Manager or designee, and (3) transfers over $50,000 require the approval of the City Council.
Capital project contract change orders generally require budget amendments or transfers of funds. Such requests
through an approval process very similar to that described above.
