    Strategic Advisory Council


    • High level direction for prioritizing investments for the next three years.

    • We may not agree on the details, but we should find common ground to guide us into the budget process.

    Strategic Advisory Council

    Imperative 1
    Imperative #1

    • Technology investments will be prioritized for funding consideration based on a compelling business case that considers the total cost of ownership for alternative solutions including operations, upgrades, replacement and disposal costs of equipment. The business case shall be aligned to the agency’s priority services as detailed in the agency’s business plans and/or operational master plans and as supported by the agency’s technology plan and the county’s strategic technology plan. Standardized management tools and practices, collaborative efforts to coordinate IT planning and/or service delivery, and other ways to provide more efficient and effective services will be encouraged.

      • Action Requested: Endorsement

    Strategic Advisory Council

    Imperative 2
    Imperative #2

    • All county agencies support an expansion of the county’s web site to increase public access to information and services and promote equal opportunity and healthy communities with appropriate privacy and security controls in place and the ability of agencies to control their websites.

      • Action Requested: Endorsement

    Strategic Advisory Council

    Imperative 4
    Imperative #4

    • Provide an appropriate level of resources to ensure compliance with privacy and security regulations and county policies and to protect the county’s information assets, including personal and sensitive information, from threats: internal and external, intentional and accidental.

      • Action Requested: Endorsement

    Strategic Advisory Council

    Imperative 5
    Imperative #5

    • Provide an appropriate level of resources to conduct and support performance measurement activities related to the technology that supports county services and initiatives. This will provide important information for the county’s management and elected officials to improve decision-making regarding the use of technology to support delivery of services and ensure that departments stay focused on top priorities.

    Financial situation background
    Financial Situation Background

    • Structural deficit has not disappeared.

    • Revenue growth rates lag behind expenditure growth rates to maintain same service levels and is forecast to continue.

    • County has started significant initiatives to mitigate structural deficit, such as the annexation initiative.

    • 2006 budget outlook is best in five years, primarily due to previous service level reductions.

    Strategic Advisory Council

    Budget imperatives
    Budget Imperatives

    • Ongoing need to realize efficiencies in the way the County delivers services. In the absence of revenue enhancements, this is the most effective way for the County to fund new and expanded services.

    • New ways of doing business – including the use of technology -- must be examined and implemented where those improvements lead to efficiencies.

    • Agencies must be held accountable for promised efficiencies when business processes are changed or technology projects are funded.

    • County must minimize the institution of new programs which create a “bow wave” in future years.

    • Planning for future known costs where those costs are significant and unavoidable, e.g. increases in employer contribution rates for state retirement pension plans.

    • County should emphasize the benefits of county-wide technology projects and encourage the joint development of those projects.

    Strategic Advisory Council
