Priority Based Budgeting has changed the culture here in Washington County and it has really set the stage for the future. What we have done since 2015 is really made people think about "why." Why do we do the work we do? Who do we serve? And, how do we do it? That has transformed the way we think, do business, and serve our people.

Katie's work at GFOA focuses on helping local governments develop policies and procedures and implement systems to improve their efficiency and effectiveness and promote financial sustainability. Her work with Shayne Kavanagh and the Financial Foundations for Thriving Communities Framework has been a focus for the ResourceX team, and we strive to support our clients and help them pursue PBB Mastery. The Financial Foundations Framework is organized into five pillars. Each pillar includes different leadership strategies and/or institutional design principles. Each of the panelists represents a PBB Community that exemplifies these elements of leadership. Read more about the session and panelists here.

The economic circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic presented numerous budget challenges, but the City was fortunate to already have the PBB data available to help make difficult budget decisions. The opportunities defined in the PBB Blueprint were made the primary means of justifying budget changes and requests by departments.
