Online Budget Request System

The Online Budget Request System (OBRS) is Mississippi LBO's website for state agencies to build and submit their annual Budget Requests.

View OBRS-Submitted and Approved State Agency Budget Requests   (View Budget submission PDFs prior to FY2017)

LBO will host an OBRS Overview on Tuesday June 4, 9:30-11:00am and again on Thursday June 6, 9:30-11:00am. Both will be in the JLBC Hearings Room, Woolfolk Building 139. Please email Mimi Berry or call 601-359-1580 to request attendance.
Note: There are no changes in OBRS for FY2021, so please sign up only if you have not used OBRS before. Thank you.

New!   FY 2021 is now unlocked in OBRS and is the default Fiscal Year.   FY2021 Budget Requests can now be added.

All FY 2021 state agency budget requests must be entered and submitted through OBRS by Thursday, August 1, 2019. LBO budget analysts must review and approve each budget request BEFORE any budget request forms can be "Final" printed (without the Draft watermark), copied and sent to the LBO and Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) offices.
