Departmental Overview


Departmental Overview

The Department of Management and Budget is a component of the Community Development Cluster of departments, which supports citizens of the city of Roanoke, as well as departments within the city of Roanoke organization.

    In its relatively short history since 1978, the Department of Management and Budget (DMB) has evolved from a two-person staff support group assisting in budget development to a full-service organizational support department focused on its quest of the following vision:

    "Building on our collective strengths and participating in partnerships, the Department of Management and Budget will be a valued resource and strategic leader in effectively and innovatively expanding and directing resources for Roanoke to meet the needs and improve the quality of life of its citizens."
    The department’s mission links the work of the department directly to addressing one of the primary focus areas of the Comprehensive Plan – Effective Government. It also recognizes that the outcome of the department’s work is both strategic and operational in nature. By helping to effectively allocate resources through the employment of carefully planned management practices and budget strategies, the department can aid the rest of the organization in meeting day-to-day service needs while, at the same time, achieving long-range strategic goals.

    "The Department of Management and Budget exists to enhance the effectiveness of Roanoke City Government. To address strategic goals while meeting ongoing service needs, we will work cooperatively with the community and City staff to implement management practices and budget strategies that will effectively allocate available resources."
