The Budget office supports the annual budget development process and performs ongoing budget monitoring throughout the year. Manassas City Public Schools has adopted a modified zero-based approach in preparing and submitting budget requests. This approach incorporates a fresh look at what we do and how we do it on an annual basis. The school divisions's Finance department monitors revenues and expenditures and coordinates development of the annual financial plan. The department is also responsible for estimating revenue and projecting expenditures, processing budget transfers, and routine budget monitoring.
The Budget office provides financial and related information to the school board and administration to facilitate decision-making. The department also performs state reporting related to required local efforts and supports other state and federally mandated financial reporting.
The Government Finance Officers Association has recognized Manassas City Public Schools Budget office for the fourth year in a row, awarding the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the Fiscal Year beginning July 1, 2021.
