View Submitted and Approved State Agency Budget Requests

Online Budget Request System

The "Online Budget Request System" (OBRS) is LBO's website for state agencies to build and submit their fiscal year Budget Requests. Links for the OBRS website and supporting documentation are found below.

All budget requests must be entered and submitted using the OBRS website by August 1 of each year. 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.

Strategic 5-Year Plans are due to LBO by July 15 of each year.
