13. Results-Focused Budget Process


A 2021 Washington law includes funding for the Office of Financial Management (OFM) to provide recommendations for equity impact statements for legislative proposals. The operating budget passed the legislature during the 2021 legislative session. Washington agencies and departments are currently making progress to implementing the requirement, including determining how to measure outcomes in the future. This requirement will then inform equity in legislative proposals.
