Budget & Finance

The Budget Division is responsible for the compilation and management of the annual County budget. The staff provides financial analysis and forecasting to the Board of Commissioners, the County Administrator, and all departments and elected offices. The County's short- and long-term debt programs are also managed in this division, which affords operating and capital funding for the County at the lowest possible cost. Our goal is to optimize these programs to deliver cost effective and efficient services to our customers.


The Budget Status Update is refreshed on a monthly basis and reported to the Board of Commissioners during their normal work study session on the 4th Wednesday of each month. 

Kitsap County departments and offices will present their 2021 requests to the Board of County Commissioners beginning September 14th, 2020, click here for more information. These public meetings are planned to be accessible via Zoom web conference. Please find the Board's Agenda Schedule for a link and information on how to attend each meeting. The following is a high-level overview of the budgeting process and a summary of changes that occurred last year.
