Independent Budget Analyst (IBA)
As prescribed by Municipal Code section 27.0506, the IBA develops draft fiscal impact analyses of proposed ballot measures relating to the City of San Diego. The draft fiscal impact analysis for each measure is provided to the Mayor and City Auditor. If there is disagreement among the IBA, Mayor and City Auditor regarding final wording that will appear on the ballot, the decision of two out of three prevails.
The fiscal impact analysis must reasonably inform the voters of the proposed measure's fiscal impact, if any, and be true, impartial and not argumentative.
For more information on ballot measures, please visit the City Clerk's webpage.
