A Solution for Budget Transformation
What We Do for You
Dynamic Budget Development Approach
Traditional budgets track line items across departments but don't organize by program or activity, making it difficult for stakeholders to understand how line items contribute to outcomes. Priority-based budgeting (PBB) ties each request to defined programmatic outcomes and detailed information based on goals. The PBB approach enables organizations to easily identify revenue possibilities, allocate and reallocate funds, and create a sustainable and fiscally responsible budget.
Data That Drives Outcomes
Priority-based budgets drive smart decision-making. Each program clearly states its purpose, how much it costs to deliver, and how it aligns with the overall priorities of the community. Program data includes critical information about mandates and community reliance on the program. PBB goes beyond traditional budgeting to provide an intuitive understanding and communicate the impact of funding changes.
A More Accessible Budget
When you adopt a PBB, you create a more transparent budget and budget development process. PBB data connects departments and elected officials with the public, facilitating a "say what you mean, and mean what you say" process that demands accountability. The result is accessibility to program information such as personnel and staffing; priority alignment; sustainability, safety and security; and more.
Beyond the Line-Item Approach
Priority-based budgeting’s strategic framework provides a comprehensive approach to support budgeting processes and programs. It emphasizes a big-picture perspective, aligning budget decisions with the overall strategic goals and priorities of an organization. Unlike the traditional line-item approach, PBB addresses the lack of structured processes to support and prioritize all programs by implementing transparent and objective criteria for program evaluation and selection. Through program prioritization and increased awareness, PBB facilitates a better understanding of a program’s value and impact, enabling stakeholders to make more informed decisions about resource allocation.
A Shared Vision
Priority-based budgeting fosters a shared understanding of strategic goals and priorities. By involving multiple departments and decision-makers in the budgeting process, it promotes collaboration and coordination, ensuring that budget decisions are made collectively, based on the organization’s objectives. This alignment enhances organizational effectiveness and efficiency, and it strategically allocates resources to support the organization’s shared vision.
Better Conversations, Stronger Relationships
Through comprehensive reporting, priority-based budgeting ensures that the rationale behind resource allocation is well documented and effectively communicated. This provides stakeholders with a clear understanding of the strategic approach and funding decisions so they can have informed conversations. This level of transparency maintains positive relations with stakeholders and citizens by demonstrating a commitment to fair and accountable budgeting practices. Stakeholders can see how their input and priorities have been considered in budgeting decisions, which fosters trust and confidence in the organization’s decision-making process.
