State Budget

Preparation, deliberation, and execution of the budget is a continual process managed by the Department of Management, as required under Iowa Code Section 8.22. This process regularly involves the Legislative and Executive branches, with occasional counsel from the Judicial branch.  The annual budget process serves as the foundation for the State’s financial planning and control.

The Department also facilitates the work of the Revenue Estimating Conference in determining revenue estimates under Iowa Code Section 8.22A, and is responsible for evaluating the fiscal and policy impacts of program and budget proposals and making this information available to decision makers.
