Mary Stephens, County Budget Director

The County Executive's Office of Budget and Analysis (OBA) provides the primary staff support to the County Executive and serves as the principal policy and fiscal analysis resource for the County.  Its responsibilities include policy analysis, fiscal analysis, financial forecasting, budget development, and analysis of programs, organization and management systems.

In addition, OBA staff serve as the department liaison for the County Executive, review items transmitted to the Board of Supervisors for fiscal impact, accuracy and adherence to County policy, provide staff support to Board Committees and provide technical and analytical resources to other agencies as needed.  Products and programs that are part of OBA include:

  • Development and management of the annual County budget process, the annual Five-Year Financial Projections, the annual Ten-Year Capital Improvement Plan, coordination of the countywide contract effort and special projects for the County Executive and the Board of Supervisors.
  • OBA also administers three additional budget units: Special Programs and Reserves, which contain budget expenditures which cross department lines, or do not neatly fit into existing program budgets and
  • Contingency Appropriations, which includes the General Fund Contingency fund as well as categorical contingency funds.  Use of these funds require the Board of Supervisors approval, and
  • In Home Supportive Services Benefits Administration, part of the overall In Home Supportive Services Program, which is operated by the Social Services Agency.
