Budget Update, May 12, 2020

At the direction of the Governor, all agencies, including DOGAMI, have prepared prioritized budget reduction proposals equaling a 17 percent reduction for the upcoming 2021 fiscal year. DOGAMI's plan is available here as a PDF document.


Oregon operates under a two-year (biennium) budget process. The budget development process has three major phases:

  • Agency Request Budget: DOGAMI begins with the previous biennium's budget, then adds, removes, or adjusts the budget based on program needs and policy responsibilities.
  • Governor's Budget: The Governor's Office and the Chief Financial Office build on and may revise the Agency Request Budget. The resulting Governor’s Budget is presented to the Legislature for consideration.
  • Legislatively Adopted Budget: Legislative committees review proposed budgets and hold public hearings before the full Legislature votes on each agency's budget.




Strategic Framework

The 2015-2021 Strategic Framework provides shared goals and objectives to guide the Agency’s progress over the next six years. The Strategic Framework establishes five focus areas, and sets a high-level goal and goal-advancing objectives for each area. Short-term initiatives are developed during each biennium to advance specific objectives.
