Our office promotes the high quality delivery of services to Boston’s residents in a cost effective way. We evaluate City programs and then use our analysis to build, present, and manage the Mayor's operating budget.
We also create the capital plan. The capital plan is a strategic document that shows how the City's investment in its infrastructure, such as bridges and roads, contributes to Boston's future. The plan helps guide the City with upcoming initiatives, like Imagine Boston 2030. The City also uses the plan to make smart spending decisions and protect its assets.
