Administration Transition Information

Report Cover


NASBO is extremely helpful to state budget and finance officials during gubernatorial transitions. Because the state budget is the defacto statement of the Governor’s policies, transitions to new leadership can sometimes mean shifting gears to different policy and budget priorities. This may also be true if a Governor has been re-elected to a second term. NASBO developed the Gubernatorial Transitions & The State Budget document (link below) to provide transition teams and state budget offices with an overview of four key issues to focus on related to the state budget.

  • Understanding the Current Budget Environment
  • Choosing the Budget Director & Utilizing Budget Office Staff
  • Taking Immediate Control of the Budget
  • Learning the Budget Basics

We encourage you to contact us for additional information or with questions.
