The Match Game: Aligning Community
Resources and Priorities with Priority Based Budgeting
Budgeting is a unique and innovative approach being used by local governments
across the country to match available resources with community priorities,
provide information to elected officials that lead to better informed
decisions, meaningfully engage citizens in the budgeting process and, finally,
escape the traditional routine of basing "new" budgets on revisions
to the "old" budget. This
holistic approach presented in this session will help provide elected officials
and other decision-makers with a "new lens" through which to frame
better-informed financial and budgeting decisions and help ensure that a
community is able to identify and preserve those programs and services that are
most highly valued.
Advanced Implementation of Priority Based Budgeting
At the end of 2015, more than 100 communities were practicing Priority Based Budgeting, using the process and tools to reshape the way a community's resources are leveraged to achieve results, and inviting citizens further into an authentic role of influence and participation. This session is intended for those who have completed a Priority Based Budgeting class, including this morning's session, and are interested in the next steps. Participants will learn how to implement online Priority Based Budgeting, with tools such as Program Costing Analyzer and Model Maker.
