Scope and Content

The Budget, Planning and Policy Office advises the Governor regarding state policy and fiscal matters in support of his statutory role as Texas’ Chief budget officer. Records are the office files of the Office of Budget, Planning and Policy (BPP), dated 1995-2010, bulk 2004-2010. Records include administrative riders for the development of the Texas state budget in 2006; information on the Texas Budget Contract; fiscal surveys of state agencies; meeting agenda items; memoranda of understanding; correspondence from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and Texas Department of Public Safety, among others; summaries and recommendations from the Boards of Review for several state agencies; a small amount of correspondence from the Governor’s Office constituents pertaining to assorted senate bills; communication with the Legislative Budget Board; playbooks including talking points and briefings on topics such as health care, veteran’s initiatives, transportation, and education; report and studies on topics such as disaster recovery and affordable housing; witness forms to the joint staff meeting of the Texas Legislative Budget Board and the Governor’s Office; building proposal forms and correspondence with the Texas Procurement Commission; registration logs from the hearings held by the Task Force on Appraisal Reform; and correspondence regarding the OneStar volunteer service coordinator program. BPP staff files also comprise a large portion of this series. The records in this group pertain to the individual staff member’s area of policy advisement, such as transportation, communications, or economic development.
