JAC’s Budget Office coordinates and processes the Justice Administration Department’s Long Range
Program Plan (LRPP) and each budget office’s Legislative Budget Request (LBR) annually as mandated by ss.
, and in accordance with instructions outlined by the Governor’s Office of Policy
and Budget. These documents are posted to the Florida Fiscal Portal.
In addition the Budget Office provides technical assistance to 54 budget offices that JAC
administratively serves (inclusive of 5 Public Defender Appellate offices), through the processing
of all budget transfers and budget amendments to include those that require Legislative Budget
Commission approval. This office is also responsible for the posting of all budgetary transactions
into the Florida Accounting Information Resource System (FLAIR), and generates various reports from
the same, as well as from the Legislative Appropriations System/Planning and Budgeting Subsystem (LASPBS)
for all offices and other stakeholders.
The JAC Budget Office is also the liaison between the offices we serve and the Governor’s Office of Policy
and Budget (OPB) on all budget related matters.
While the JAC administratively serves these offices, the JAC does not supervise, direct, or control the offices it serves.
