The Division of the Budget has central responsibility for the state budget process and management of state government.  Within broad guidelines set by law, the Division issues instructions, regulations and directives that determine how state agencies propose and justify requests for expenditure authority.  Findings and conclusions arising from that analysis are submitted to the Governor and become the basis for the Governor’s recommendations to the Legislature.

A master’s degree is preferred, however a minimum of three years of experience and skills in budget, program, and quantitative analysis as well as excellent written and oral
