City of Sacramento Initiates Priority Based Budgeting Process

The annual budget process includes a financial planning workshop with the City Council to consider, discuss and provide direction on the development of the proposed budget for next fiscal year.

One of the key components of this workshop is determining whether the City's budget reflects Council's priorities.

The City’s Finance Department has engaged the Center for Priority Based Budgeting to assist in aligning what the City currently has developed, as reflected in the Program Oriented Development (POD) exercise prepared by departments, with Council’s Focus Areas.  Completion of this exercise will enable the Council and constituents to understand the allocation of the City’s resources with
respect to Council’s priorities.
