Zero Based Budgeting

Each year, as the Secretary of State’s Office drafts and amends its budget, we remain committed to utilizing fiscally conservative business principles, and we continually seek ways to streamline our operations. We have accomplished these goals while maintaining our required workload and becoming more efficient in each division of the Office.

Our agency utilizes Zero-Based Budgeting when building and amending our annual spending blueprints. Zero-Based Budgeting requires our division directors to justify each dollar and project their requests in a bottom-up fashion, and these requests are thoroughly reviewed before receiving final approval by the Secretary of State. 

Zero-Based Budgeting ensures that the agency remains a responsible steward of Georgians’ tax dollars.
