Budget and Management Services Department
The Budget and Management Services Department coordinates the effective and efficient allocation of city resources in line with strategic priorities. The department supports the City Council, City Manager and City departments as they provide quality public services to Raleigh residents. The department provides facilitative leadership in the following areas:
- Development and execution of the City’s annual operating and capital budgets;
- Citywide strategic plan development and implementation, which includes performance measurement and benchmarking;
- Conducts ongoing program and policy analyses to inform Council and executive decisions; and
- Citywide grants program administration.
The Office of Management and Budget prepares and manages the annual operating budget and capital improvement program for the City, as well as conducts research and analysis in the areas of improving operational efficiency and cost effectiveness, performance measures, organizational structure and processes. Program Manager: Amber Smith
Capital Improvement Program
Capital improvement programming is one element in the city's long-term planning process. It is a bridge between the city's Comprehensive Plan and short-term planning for infrastructure and operations. The city's capital improvement program analyzes major facility and equipment needs, establishes priorities, estimates fiscal resources, and schedules the development of funded projects.
Strategic Planning and Performance Management
Citywide Strategic Planning and Performance Management is also a responsibility of the Budget and Management Services Department. The City’s Strategic Plan, first adopted in April 2015, and scheduled for regular updates, articulates key focus areas and strategic objectives and initiatives to guide the City’s efforts. Performance measures are developed and monitored to support implementation efforts as well as to guide decision making and allocation of city resources. Program Manager: Monica Chaparro
The Grants Management program serves to strengthen the coordination of all City grant activities from grant application through grant closing. The program is a collaboration between the Budget & Management Services and Finance Departments. Program Manager: Kirsten LarsonGrant Opportunities
