Budgeting for Outcomes
Step By Step

Step 1:
Determine Available Funds
Staff analyzed historical info & current trends to estimate revenue for FY2015.

Estimated general fund revenue for
FY2015 is $216,850,000.00

A 2.03% increase over FY2014 budgeted revenues or a 0.76%
increase over FY24014 projected
actual revenues.
Step 2:
Establish Priorities
Based on input from citizens, Mayor Berke’s vision to move Chattanooga forward is built around five result areas:

Safer Streets
Smarter Students & Stronger Families
A Growing Economy
Stronger Neighborhoods
High Performing Government

Step 3:
Allocate Revenues to Priorities
Step 4:
Offers Are Submitted
Departments and agencies submitted offers that explained how each dollar in the general operation budget would achieve results for citizens.

All offers were encouraged to include:

Clear & measurable goals
Collaboration with agencies & departments
Mechanisms for citizen involvement & feedback
Sustainable practices
Research & evidence based best practices

Step 5:
Rank Offers
Result Teams were formed for each result area & included:
a member of the leadership team;
a budget analyst;
two City department administrators;
a volunteer community member with expertise in the specific result area.

Result Teams reviewed all offers and ranked them twice, providing feedback between reviews on how to improve.

Rankings are listed in priority order.

Step 6:
Identify KPIs
Each result area has overall desired outcomes for which performance measures must be identified and tracked.

This performance data will be closely monitored throughout the year.

The leadership team is currently in the process of developing key performance indicators (KPIs), from identified performance measures and additional factors, for each result area.

Step 7:
Monitor & Track Results - ongoing
Through the development and implementation of a performance management tool called ChattaData, the City will have the ability to maintain, track, and release City performance information, yielding long term savings and effectiveness.
