ResourceX provides public access to the online Priority Based Budgeting tool through our Open PBB Data platform. This sophisticated Open Data tool allows your community members to review City budgets based on multiple variables, including type of program, department, and quartile ranking, and to compare your organization's budget (and budget data) to that of other organizations that use this tool.


Through Open PBB Data, your organization will be committed to sharing your PBB data with the public to increase transparency, accountability, customer service, and empower citizens with the ability to harness a vast array of useful information to improve life in your community. 


Open PBB Data is specifically designed to transparently share all priority based budgeting data. Through this Open PBB Data set, your community will now have the opportunity to:


  • Translates the city’s line-item budget into a program budget

  • Reveals the prioritization of every program in the city budget

  • Show exactly how much it costs the city to deliver every program (service)

  • Demonstrate exactly how much city staff support is required to deliver every program (service)

  • Exhibit the relevance of each program (service) in relation to community results

  • Show if a program is mandated (by Federal, State or local government) to be delivered

  • Demo if the city is a sole provider of a program or if others (public or private entity) are delivering similar programs

  • Present the level of reliance on the city citizens have for program delivery

  • Reveal program level revenue and if fee-based programs pay for themselves

  • Demonstrate the level in which every single city program impacts community results

Open PBB Data is the premier open data site in the nation. Never before have municipalities had the ability to share such comprehensive program level data with their citizens. With Open PBB Data citizens will be able to:


  • Obtain a thorough understanding of all the programs the city delivers, what it costs to deliver programs, and understand whether the programs contribute to community results

  • Understand exactly what programs are funded through tax dollars

  • Evaluate and analyze how city programs impact community results

  • Communicate with the city to evolve the prioritization of programs

  • Longmont business owners and other public entities will have an opportunity to evaluate all the city programs to determine where partnership opportunities exist
