2016 Fall Budget Monitoring Process (BMP)
At various times during the year, the City provides opportunitites for bureaus to make adjustments to their current fiscal year budgets. Over the last few years, BDS has used these Budget Monitoring Processes (BMPs) to add positions quickly in response to changes in workload, rather than having to wait to use the City’s annual budget development process.
City Council approved BDS’s Fall 2016 BMP request on October 26, 2016. BDS’s BMP request included the addition of 16 fee-supported positions; 12 are new, while 4 are conversions from Limited Term to permanent:
These positions are located throughout the bureau in different divisions and workgroups. See the attached tables for more detailed information.
