Job Title: Budget Analyst
Type of Company: I work for the New York state courts.
Education: BA, Political Science, SUNY-Geneseo Masters, Public Administration, SUNY-Albany
Previous Experience: I started my career as an intern in a satellite of the office that I currently work in. The internship gave me experience that led to the job I have now.
Job Tasks: I work in the budget office of the New York State Court System, where I am the supervisor of the budget unit. Our primary responsibility is to assemble the Court of Appeals' annual budgetary request to the Governor and the Legislature. This involves collecting and analyzing requests from each and every Court and court-related agency in New York State. These requests are categorized and prioritized in keeping with the operational priorities and initiatives of the Chief Judge. After submission, our job is to provide information, as requested, to the Governor's Division of the Budget and the Legislative fiscal staffs relating to our Budget request. Once a Budget Bill is passed, we distribute funds, based on organizational priorities, to the Courts and court-related agencies. Later, we monitor expenditures to ensure they don't exceed the annual allocation. Monitoring expenditures involves running monthly reports and preparing spreadsheets that compare expenditures on an annual and monthly basis. We also provide fiscal analysis on all legislation related to the Unified Court System as well as on any internal projects or initiatives. An aspect of my job that encompasses all of these duties is keeping in constant contact with regional district offices that work directly with the Courts and keeping in contact with the administrative directors of the Courts.
Best and Worst Parts of the Job: The best part of my job is the constant challenge of working on projects that involve projections and analysis. In working on these projects, I am constantly learning new things about the courts and court operations and proposed legislation affecting the courts. Working in an environment with confident, intelligent professionals is another rewarding aspect of my job.
The worst part of my job is the technical part of putting a budget together which can be very stressful and tedious.
