The annual Citywide Work Plan and budget serve as guides for how the City plans to address community priorities in each fiscal year. The Citywide Work Plan contains initiatives to support the Key Intended Outcomes (KIOs) in the City’s Strategic Plan. The Work Plan initiatives are updated annually based on the latest survey results, socioeconomic trends, and department workload and performance measures. The Citywide Work Plan is used to guide departments as they analyze services and prepare proposed department work plans and budgets.
Consistent with the City’s Excellence Model, each department first prepares their proposed department annual work plan for the ensuing fiscal year to support the City’s strategic planning priorities and Citywide Work Plan. The Performance Plan component of the department work plans are the basis upon which recommendations for enhancements, reductions, realignments, and efficiencies are made, aligning departmental programs and activities with the City’s KIOs, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and Citywide Initiatives outlined in the City’s adopted Strategic Plan and Citywide Work Plan.
Historically, departments were given a target budget early in the process and each department budget submission was balanced to that target, resulting in a budget that was incremental and focused on line items rather than priorities. Beginning with the FY 2005/06 budget, the City implemented performance-based approach for allocating resources based on the City’s Strategic Plan and annual City Work Plan.
