Join Chris Fabian for a Session Filled with Updates and Announcements
9:00 am - 11: 00 am MT, followed by the ResourceXcellence Awards at 11:15 am MT
ResourceX is the 21st Century budgeting best practices leader as the provider of the Priority Based Budgeting methodology and OnlinePBB software, but we haven't stopped there. The foundational unit of Priority Based Budgeting, the Program, can take organizations even further as the vehicle for change.
With the development of Insights, we took organizations a step closer to programmatic budgeting. Insights allow departments to communicate their ideas and needs for each program so leadership can better understand the resources needed to serve the community and achieve the overall vision. An now, ResourceX is excited to announce the launch of OnlinePBB Budgeter because "We are Doing Budgeting Differently!"

Some important changes include:
- Clearly presented departmental program descriptions
- A narrative description of the assigned services, functions, programs and activities of organizational units should be included. Major priorities within each organizational unit should also be addressed.
- Clear linkage between identified programs and goals and objectives
- This criterion requires that departmental/program goals and objectives be described. The relationship of departmental/program goals to the strategic goals of the entity should be apparent.
PROGRAM RECOMMENDATIONS OFFER MORE TRANSPARENCY FOR BOTH DEPARTMENTS AND DECISION-MAKERSProgram requests clarify each request during the creation process so that departments and decision-makers can quickly and efficiently validate each request's purpose and merit.
PROGRAMS LEAD YOU THROUGH A STRATEGIC BUDGETING PROCESS TO GET YOU TO A CLEARER ANSWERPriority Based Budgeting creates program data which becomes a shared language with a built-in narrative. OnlinePBB Budgeter builds each budget request on top of this data-rich background.
PROGRAM CENTRIC BUDGETING SOLVES THE LINE-ITEM CHALLENGELine-item budgeting doesn't tell decision-makers anything about how the request will impact the community. Program requests begin with data demonstrating resource alignment to community needs and wants and how an increase or decrease of resources will affect the community.
"You included council in a budget meeting that was fully inclusive. You laid it out. It wasn't just thrown in a book and left for us to interpret and make some guesses at. It's a much-improved and open process. That's the way government should operate."
