Bureau of the Budget and Management Research

The Bureau of the Budget and Management Research formulates the City's annual operating budget and recommends annual capital expenditures to the Director of Finance. It prepares fiscal notes for all local legislation, and provides policy and fiscal research and analysis on a variety of administrative, departmental and citywide issues. The bureau provides oversight of all budget expenditures. The bureau is responsible for the Administrative Manual, which communicates official City policies and procedures affecting City employees.  Read More

 Good Government Book Club

Our next selection is The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge.  In this book, Senge describes the five disciplines that enable managers to overcome their obstacles to growth and create brave new futures for them and their companies.  The five disciplines are drawn from science, spiritual wisdom, psychology, the cutting edge of management thought, and Senge's own work with top corporations that employ his methods. 
 
For this GGBC selection, there will be two meetings.  The July 23rd meeting will cover chapters 1-3 and the August meeting will cover the remainder of the book.  This book was recommended by John Beakes, the City’s Lean facilitator, and John will be leading our discussion at both meetings.
 
GGBC meetings are open to all City employees.  Bring a brown bag lunch and enjoy the conversation – dessert will be provided.
 
Hope to see you all there!
