Secretary Kemp stated, "When we draft and amend our annual spending blueprints, we utilize fiscally conservative business principles and continually seek ways to streamline our operations. Zero-based budgeting requires our division directors to justify each dollar and project they request in a bottom-up fashion, and these requests are thoroughly reviewed before receiving final approval."
The Secretary of State's zero-based budgeting website includes planned expenditures by category and line item within the agency's Administration, Archives, Corporations, Elections, Professional Licensing Boards and Securities divisions.
"The Secretary of State's Office is committed to transparent and accountable budgeting and spending. Zero-based budgeting ensures that our agency remains a responsible steward of taxpayer dollars and becomes more efficient in every agency division," Kemp added.
