Office of Management and Budget


What the Department Does and for Whom

The mission of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is to support and enhance the effective, efficient operation of County government, maintain the County's fiscal integrity and financial condition, and preserve the County's AAA bond rating by developing, implementing, and enforcing appropriate budgetary policies and procedures; providing accurate, timely, and objective information and recommendations to the County Executive, County departments, the County Council, and the general public; preparing and administering the operating and capital budgets in compliance with the County Charter, generally accepted accounting principles, and the policy agendas of elected officials; and ensuring that available resources are efficiently allocated and productively used.
Department Performance Measures
Montgomery County departments are broken out into discrete programs for the purposes of Outcome Based Budgeting.
A program is an activity or set of activities performed by County government that has:

  • identifiable costs for budgeting purposes
  • a clear public purpose and measurable results, and
  • clear lines of accountability for its performance and financial management
The following are the performance measures for programs within the Office of Management and Budget. In our performance framework
there are three categories of measures:

  • How much did we do? (quantity)
  • How well did we do it? (quality)
  • Is anyone better off? (effect or impact)
