CPBB Makes ELGL Choice Awards: Top 50 Local Government Companies

"PBB communities are driving innovation, sharing information, experimenting, advancing lessons learned, and fulfilling the complete mission of PBB to unearth, marshal and re-direct resources towards the betterment of our communities."

The Center for Priority Based Budgeting is psyched and honored to come in at #34 on this list.

We're proud of our work assisting dozens of cities and counties across North America fundamentally 
change their approach to resource alignment through Priority Based Budgeting (PBB). PBB contributes to a community’s long-term financial sustainability and allows communities to better serve their residents in the most effective, efficient and fiscally responsible manner possible. The City of Boulder, Colorado recently stated that "priority based budgeting is the "framework" in which all budget decisions are made."

Priority-Based Budgeting was declared a Best Practice by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), urging every local government in the world to approach resource allocation decisions in the context of what matters most to it’s community. 

In 2009, the Center for Priority Based Budgeting was created as a mechanism to help local governments implement PBB, as nothing else existed within local government public finance that truly is scalable, transferable and effective. And our work in assisting over 120 city and county local government communities, of different geographies, demographics and economies, across the US and Canada, successfully implement this best and leading practice substantiates the demise of the myth that little can be replicated across local government communities.

At the beginning of 2015, over 80 communities across North America have implemented Priority Based Budgeting (PBB), impacting over 11 million citizens across the US and Canada. Now in 2016, over 120 cities, counties, school districts and special districts will be practicing PBB, using the process and tools to reshape the way all of a community’s resources are leveraged to achieve Results, and inviting citizens further into an authentic role of influence and participation.

ELGL recently conducted a survey which led to the creation of the Top 50 Local Government Companies. The results and ELGL announcement article are posted below.

ELGL Choice Awards: Top 50 Local Government Companies

Our “award-winning” members have spoken on the best companies working in the local government arena. The inaugural ELGL Choice Award recipients have been selected using two criteria: the number of nominations received by each company (75%) and an evaluation from the ELGL management team (25%).

Based on member feedback, the ELGL Choice Award will become a fluid list that is updated quarterly using the above criteria. Anyone (ELGL member or not) can submit a nomination via the form at the end of this post.

We're also thrilled for all the innovative companies who made this list, but especially our many local government friends and partners who made this list along with us. So we're also giving a huge shout out to CPBB friends and partners who also made this list.

#1 - What Works Cities is a national initiative to help 100 mid-sized American cities enhance their use of data and evidence to improve services, inform local decision-making and engage residents.

#5 - National Research Center, Inc. (NRC) has worked with hundreds of local governments to provide them with full-service survey research and evaluation needed to move their communities forward.
