The Office of Management and Budget is a catalyst for improving the overall management of county resources (people and dollars) through our coordination and oversight of the budget process and financial planning and the implementation of innovative financial and management initiatives.

The Office of Management and Budget develops, coordinates and monitors county agency operating and capital budgets and provides management and strategic direction to carry out the policies and initiatives established by the King County Executive.

From the King County Countywide Strategic Plan:

Priorities for Year One:
