In 1995 the Office of Management and Planning (OMP) was created by bringing together the Office of Management and Budget and Planning Department. OMP was the lead office within the Executive Department for community planning, budgeting, capital infrastructure analysis, forecasting, policy and economic analysis, and management.
In early 1998, the Mayor divided the Office of Management and Planning and formed a new Strategic Planning Office (SPO) for policy planning in the Executive Department. The City's budget function was reorganized in the newly-formed City Budget Office (CBO), located in the Executive Services Department.
In 2002 the Strategic Planning Office was abolished and its functions were provided in other executive agencies, namely the Department of Design, Construction and Land Use; Department of Transportation; Department of Neighborhoods; Department of Finance, and Office of Economic Development. Certain former SPO functions related to policy development, inter-department policy coordination, and planning support for the Mayor and City Council were moved to a new Office of Policy and Management (OPM).
