We build and carry out the Mayor’s operating budget and capital plan. Our work helps the City make smart investments, and aims to create a thriving, healthy, and innovative Boston.

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.
