The Bigger Picture
Design program budgeting that enables sustainable progress.
Faced with revenue decline and rising costs, governments seek ways to close budget gaps. Priority-based budgeting (PBB) is your fiscal sustainability government budgeting tool—equipping governments with the necessary data to make difficult decisions, understand program impact, and make substantial shifts feasible and routine.
Align Sustainability Goals to Budget
Navigate Fiscal Challenges
Public health crises and other public emergencies have caused governments to be reactive rather than proactive with their funding. PBB is a key tool that helps governments address revenue declines, increased expenses, and budget gaps.
Through PBB’s data-driven insights, governments can make informed decisions that align spending with essential programs and a fiscal sustainability plan.
Maximize Federal Support
One-time federal funds provide a welcome boost, but their interim aid underscores the need for long-term fiscal sustainability and governments that understand how to budget during a recession.
Build Resilience Through Adaptation
Amid ongoing economic ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments must anticipate future resource limitations.
PBB builds resilience by encouraging strategic resource reallocation as a regular practice. By normalizing substantial shifts in funding and making them achievable, governments enhance their ability to secure a sustainable and promising future.
