The Department of Management provides leadership and support to the rest of state government and to local governments. Major fiscal-related responsibilities include the preparation of the Governor's recommended budget, analysis and implementation of the budget and legislation approved by the general assembly, tax and revenue estimating and analysis, overall fiscal and budget management and oversight, policy development and implementation, grants management, and participation in and staff support for the State Appeal Board, which handles tort and other legal claims against the State. The Department also provides budget, valuation, tax levy, utility tax replacement, and other support and oversight to local governments, including schools. Major accountability functions include systems and support for planning, measures, improvement, and reporting, all emphasizing performance. The Department leads organizational transformation in state government, promoting change that moves state government beyond the traditional, bureaucratic paradigm to one that is more dynamic, effective, and results-oriented. As part of all these activities, Department staff frequently provide data and information to the Governor, Lt. Governor, legislature, other state agencies, media, stakeholders, and the public. The Department is also frequently called upon to lead or coordinate major state-government-wide projects and initiatives.
