About OSBM

The North Carolina Office of State Budget & Management (OSBM) delivers the highest quality budget development and management services for state government. Overseeing the state’s budget process is at the heart of much of what we do. Yet OSBM is much more than budgets.

  • Our team provides budget and policy analysis counsel to the Governor, state agencies, and state legislature.
  • We assimilated and analyze economic and demographic data to help inform decisions and maintain a balanced budget.
  • We provide government agencies with services to support stewardship of public resources and prudent decision-making. 
  • These include tools to improve operational efficacy through data and evidence, such as strategic planning, performance management, and impact analysis for proposed rules. 
  • And we support state agencies’ financial control structures such as grants management, internal audits, and the oversight committee for retired state employees' health benefits.
  • Our office is also home to the state fraud hotline, where any citizen or employee of the state can report suspected misuse of public resources.
