The Budget and Management Studies Division (BMSD) assists in financial planning and strategic management processes across the city organization by delivering management information, decision support, consulting, auditing, and implementation services.

The Division has four primary responsibilities: The City of Fresno Annual Budget is the most important document the City produces. It outlines the City’s spending plan and priorities for the coming fiscal year, which runs from July 1st to June 30th. Each year, the city’s budget is developed in conjunction with the Mayor, City Manager and all city departments. The budget is then reviewed and approved by the City Council. The result is a budget that closely matches the community's highest priorities each fiscal year.

The Cost Allocation Plan has been developmed in accordance with Federal Circular Office of Management and Budget (OMB) A-87 principles.
- Based on Fiscal Year ending FY 2013 for use in FY 2015

The Master Fee Schedule includes all fees charged by the City of Fresno for various services.

  • Master Fee Schedule is maintained by BMSD
Budget Award
The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award to the City of Fresno, California for its annual budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2008 - June 30, 2009

In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as an operations guide, as a financial plan, and as communication device.

The award is valid for a period of one year only.  This is the third consecutive year that the City of Fresno has been honored.  We believe our current budget continues to conform to program requirements, and will submit it to the GFOA to determine its eligibility for the prestigious recognition.

Budget Policies Manual (BPM) is used to staff as a guide to build their annual budget.
