Office of the Budget Director

The Office of the Budget Director is responsible for advising Councilmembers on matters related to the District’s budget, including review, markup, enactment, and oversight of the annual operating budget and capital plan.  The Office also analyzes the fiscal impacts of legislation and reviews reprogramming and contract approval requests.  Budget staff serve as a resource for all Council committees and members.

The Fiscal Year 2013 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) will be released on January 31, 2014. A public hearing on the CAFR is scheduled for February 5, 2014.  Committees will then hold Fiscal Year 2014 performance oversight hearings from February 7, 2014 through March 7, 2014.

In accordance with DC Code § 1-204.42 and Council Resolution 20-367, the Mayor’s proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget will be available to the public no later than April 3, 2014.  Committee hearings on the Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Request Act will be held between April 8, 2014 and May 9, 2014, followed by committee budget markups from May 13 to May 15.  The first vote on the Budget Request Act and Budget Support Act will be held on May 28, 2014, and the second has been scheduled for June 11, 2014.

For hearing times and locations and committee contact information, please refer to the Notice of Public Hearings and Committee Mark-up Schedule and the calendar section of the Council’s website.  Links to Fiscal Year 2015 budget formulation documents, to include the Mayor’s budget request, agency responses to committee questions, committee reports, and Council legislation, will be posted to the FY 2015 budget section of the Council website as the documents become available.
