Administrative history

The Budget and Research Department was established in 1974 and developed policies to provide effective short and long term fiscal planning, internal audit, economic and consulting services for the City of Edmonton. It was comprised of four branches: Internal Audit Branch, Budget Branch, Economics Research Branch, and Analytical Services Branch.

The Management Services Department was established in 1971 in order to establish and maintain business systems which cross functional lines. In 1977 a corporate reorganization combined the functions of the Management Services Department and the Budget and Research Department to form the Management Studies, Systems and Budget Department.

The Management Studies, Systems and Budget Department was responsible for providing directive and consultative services throughout the City administration. Specifically, the department provided professional management consulting services to the Executive Level of all departments in the City; managed the computerized information systems development process; and was responsible for getting annual capital and current budgets approved and developing a regular reporting system to monitor the progress of the budget throughout the year.

When the Management Studies, Systems and Budget Department was established it was composed of three separate branches: Management Studies (to provide a professional management consulting services to the Executive Level of all departments in the City), Management Systems (to manage the computerized information systems development process), and Budgetary Planning and Control (to get approved annual capital and current budgets, and to develop a regular reporting system to monitor the progress of the budget throughout the year).

The Mobile Equipment Services Department was created in 1974 through a reorganization of the Civic Garage Department. The Mobile Equipment Services Department was responsible for supplying equipment and supply and maintenance of vehicles for City departments. It was composed of three branches and three sections. These included the Engineering Branch, the Maintenance and Repair Branch, the Support Services Branch, the Analytical Services Section, the Administration Section, and the Fleet Safety and Training Section.

In 1977 when the Mobile Equipment Services Department and the Purchasing Division of the Finance Department were merged to form the Central Supply and Services Department. The mission of the Central Supply and Services Department was to provide management of corporate resources; to obtain materials and services; to provide management supervision and inspection of contracted services; and to provide office services. In 1978 the Department was also responsible for all data processing in the City.
