Budget
  The Budget department prepares and manages the City's budget through a variety of activities and functions that are consistent with established City policies and State statutes. The annual budget is developed from input from each department and from detailed analysis by the budget staff. The City Manager and the Finance Director review and configure individual budgets with department heads before presenting them to the City Commission for review and approval. The budget includes both the operating budget (which includes salaries, operating expenses and capital expenditures), as well as the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), which includes significant multi-year capital expenditures for design, maintenance and construction projects.

Distinguished Budget Award

  The City of Sarasota has been awarded the prestigious national Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association for the past 23 years. The City was notified on March 10, 2013, that the City's current Budget qualified for the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and represents a significant achievement for the City Finance Department. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well a City's budget serves as:

  A policy document
  A financial plan
  An operations guide
  A communications device

Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories to receive the award.
