(a) At the beginning of June, the OPPBD issues a call for final budget estimates for the budget year. Essentially, the call requests the agencies to review their preliminary estimates approved earlier under the budget resolution and submit any revisions due to significant changes that may have occurred since the budget resolution was approved. The changes and financial impact must be clearly identified and the alternatives considered by the agency to take care of the changes must be explained before requesting additional resources.

(b) Agencies which opted for their preliminary estimates are not required to submit any additional documentation. The OPPBD will prepare the preliminary estimates in final form and submit a copy for review by the agency.

(c) The forms used in the preliminary budgets will also be used for the final budget estimates. Blank forms are available at the OPPBD at no cost to the agency.
