View Submitted and Approved State Agency Budget Requests

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.

All state agency budget requests must be entered in OBRS and submitted by Wednesday, August 1, 2018. 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 for Fiscal Years 2020-2024 are due to LBO by Monday, July 16, 2018.
   NOTE: Please email a PDF version of your 5-Year Strategic Plan to strategic@lbo.ms.gov . (MS Word documents can be saved as PDF using "File, Save As" and selecting the file type "*.pdf".)

FY 2020 is now unlocked in OBRS and FY2020 Budget Requests can now be added.
