Budget Office Financial Impact Analysis
Approval of the exhibits to this ordinance reflect appropriation changes in 54 funds by a net increase of $517.7 million, primarily resulting from truing up beginning fund balance and other resources between fiscal years. The ordinance as filed appropriates $44.4 million in one-time General Fund contingency and waives financial policy for Capital Set Aside in order to appropriate more than 50% of excess available General Fund balance for other priorities. The ordinance leaves $8.1 million in unrestricted General Fund contingency, $20.1 million in policy reserves, and $4.2 million in capital set aside. The ordinance also directs the Budget Office to increase FY 2022-23 base budget General Fund Current Appropriation Level (“CAL”) targets by $2.4 million, which pre-emptively allocates ongoing General Fund resource for the upcoming annual budget development process. These changes are summarized in Exhibit 2. Additional detail is available on the CBO website: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/….
