Budget Offers
  • Service to produce priority
  • Cost of the service
  • Indicators to measure success
Departments respond to Requests for Offers with proposals (Offers) detailing their performance commitment for a stated Priority and assume no guarantee of funding based on historic levels. Only expenditures part of Offers will be funded in the Final Budget. Offers are opportunities for departments to propose new or innovative approaches and practices.

Offers are ranked by Results Teams according to their value in producing the Priority. Results Teams give feedback to departments about Offers so they can be improved. New offers may be proposed at this time.

Results Teams do final ranking of Offers based on what contributes most to achieving the Priority. Money allocations are applied and legitimate mandates considered. The team then makes Recommendations to the Mayor regarding what should be purchased.
