This webpage provides information on BDS's current budget and financial planning process, along with documents and information from previous years.
The City of Portland's fiscal year runs from July 1 - June 30, and the City operates on a 1-year budget cycle. Currently, BDS is preparing its budget request for fiscal year (FY) 2016-17.
BDS also prepares a 5-Year Financial Plan to provide long term financial projections and to aid the bureau in decision making. The Financial Plan is updated annually at the same time the bureau prepares its budget request. Currently, BDS is updating the Financial Plan for the period covering FY 2016-17 through FY 2020-21.
As part of the annual budget process, each City Bureau forms a Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) that includes management, labor, customers, and internal and external stakeholders.
In June 2010, the City Council directed the Office of Management and Finance to convene a committee of economic and commercial experts to review BDS’s financial projections and 5-Year Financial Plan.
