The Budget Office is responsible for developing and establishing the Department's annual spending plan and budget request. This involves the continual monitoring of expenditures for the Department's institutions, divisions, and programs. The Budget Office acts as the Department's liaison with the Executive Office of Public Safety (EOPS), Fiscal Affairs, and the Legislature on all funding issues, including the general appropriations act and any supplemental appropriations.

Additionally, the Budget Office allocates funds to facilities/divisions based on their operational needs, special requirements, and the Department's vision and mission goals. The Budget Office is responsible for ensuring that the Department does not overspend its appropriations and accomplishes this through monitoring of expenditures and meeting with pertinent department managers having decision-making authority to expend funds.
