The City's fiscal year 2019-2021 budget process is under way.


The forecast is a straightforward projection of the City’s revenues and expenditures over the forecast period, fiscal year FY 2013‐14 through FY 2017‐18. The purpose of the Five‐Year Financial Plan is to help the City of Oakland make informed financial and operational decisions by better anticipating future revenues and expenditures. It covers all major City funds, and generally assumes that service levels and revenue mechanisms will remain constant at base year FY 2012‐13 levels for all of the future forecast years, with a few key exceptions.
