Budgeting For Results
Budgeting for Results is a new, data-driving initiative in Illinois that ties the allocation of funds to specific performance measures. In addition to identifying desired outcomes through public input, these outcomes will be prioritized and priced, with some falling above or below a line which determines what will be funded (depending on how much revenue is available).
