About the Office of the Budget


As part of the executive branch, the Office of the Budget is responsible for preparing the Governor’s annual state budget and implementing it after it is passed by the General Assembly and signed by the Governor.

The two main operational areas of the Office of the Budget are the Governor's Budget Office, which oversees the preparation and implementation of the state budget, and Comptroller Operations, which oversees the commonwealth's uniform accounting, payroll and financial reporting systems.

The Office of Administrative Services provides the commonwealth's Executive Offices with budget management, purchasing, payment, messenger and facilities management services.

The Office for Performance Improvement works with state agencies to help make their operations more efficient and effective, giving Pennsylvanians the best return on their tax dollars. Select this link to read the current and past editions of the Report on State Performance.
