Documents for the July 25, 2018 meeting of the Joint Committeee on Appropriations:

South Dakota state government closed the 2018 budget year on June 30 marking the seventh consecutive year with a surplus. The state general fund budget for Fiscal Year 2018 ended with lower expenditures and higher revenues than budgeted. Here is BFM's FY2018 Year End Summary.

The GOAC requested a document explaining BFM's Performance Management Indicators, which was reviewed at the meeting on June 11, 2018.

  • The South Dakota Budget in Brief, Fiscal Year 2019 provides a cursory overview of the financial condition of the state of South Dakota and a summary of the state budget for the fiscal year.
  • BFM has created a new, still evolving, financial publication called the Citizen's Financial Report. It is intended to be a clear and understandable summary of information from our Budget Report, CAFR, Long Term Financial Plan, and Ecomonic Updates.
