13. Results-Focused Budget Process


A 2013 Maryland law requires the Maryland Department of Budget and Management to submit an annual Managing for Results performance report to the state legislature as part of the budget process. This report contains the following information for each state agency: (1) the outcomes or results that have been achieved towards annual performance measures; (2) a three-year review of performance for each of the indicators; and (3) an estimate of expected program outcomes over the subsequent two years.
