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.

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.
