Budgeting for Outcomes

Local governments are subject to increasing financial pressures, which will only worsen with increasing health care costs, stagnant revenues, and an aging population. The common reaction to fiscal pressure has been across-the-board cuts, which weaken every program equally, regardless of its impact on citizens. Budgeting for Outcomes (BFO) for Smaller Communities is a novel approach to budgeting that starts with the results citizens want and focuses not on how to cut 10 or 15 percent from the budget, but on how to maximize the results produced with the remaining 85 to 90 percent. BFO represents a sustainable approach to budgeting - one that can be used year after year to maintain long-term fiscal balance while simultaneously improving the value government delivers to the public.
