DPA’s Budget Policy and Analysis Unit is responsible for creating and submitting the fiscal year budget for the Department.  In addition to providing an operating budget to the Governor’s office and the Joint Budget Committee each year, the DPA budget includes the complex process of how customer state agencies reallocate funds to offset the cost of support services DPA provides.   


The Budget Policy and Analysis Unit and the Policy & Communications Unit develop the Department’s strategic plan and official organizational structure, which are maintained through the Office of State Planning & Budgeting.
