About General Govenrment
The General Government department is used to account for costs not directly related to any specific department. It consists of two programs: the General Government program and Post-Employment Benefits program.
The General Government program includes funding for debt service on General Fund long-term debt, the General Fund capital program, and the appropriated reserves established each year pursuant to City reserve policies.
The Post-Employment Benefits program includes funding for the annual required contributions for post-employment benefits, including sick leave, vacation leave, and retiree medical benefits. These costs are allocated citywide.
