Effective budgeting is about aligning your government finances and resources with priorities that benefit your community and stakeholders. Of course, this is easier said than done, especially during times of uncertainty.
So how can your government achieve budgeting success when the future looks a little foggy?

Local governments today are working to adopt a priority-based budget. This means making budget decisions and allocating funds based on your community’s needs, while working with available resources as a starting point.

Once upon a time, your organization might have benefitted from a traditional “service centre” approach to IT.
Now, shifting your IT partnership to one that’s business-driven is key to allowing your organization to achieve budget success when times get rough.
Achieving a business-driven partnership allows IT to be a part of your organization, rather than problem-solver on an as-needed basis. In turn, this provides IT with insight into your organization’s budget needs and functionalities.
Maintaining a collaborative, business-centric approach with IT will enable your organization to request and implement necessary solutions, alongside increased budget data transparency and accountability for data-owners.
Developing an effective budget is no small task, and local governments are under immense pressure to get their budgeting processes done efficiently, with little difficulty and cost.
During times of uncertainty, this pressure is only amplified.
The good news? Implementing a cloud-based budgeting solution can do wonders to simplify your organization’s budget process and take the pressure off.
The right cloud-based budgeting solution:
A cloud-based budgeting solution, in tandem with a priority-based approach to budgeting and a strategic partnership with IT, allows your organization to budget with greater efficiency so that your stakeholders and communities are always a top priority — no matter the uncertainties.
