What are Results Teams?

Results Teams serve as the core of Baltimore City's outcome budgeting process. As a member of a team you would provide valuable input to the Mayor regarding the funding decisions for City services.

Teams evaluate budget proposals from agencies to determine the best way to deliver the results that residents expect while maximizing the results per dollar spent. Results Teams work includes:

  • reading agency proposals
  • holding agency conferences
  • ranking agency proposals
  • developing funding recommendations to deliver to the Mayor

The recommendations from these Teams provide the Mayor with better information about what we are getting for the tax dollars spent and show how agency contributions achieve the Mayor’s goals.

Baltimore’s annual budget is organized by Pillar and each Pillar has a corresponding Results Team. Mayor Scott's Pillars are Prioritizing Our Youth, Building Public Safety, Clean and Healthy Communities, Equitable Neighborhood Development, and Responsible Stewardship of City Resources.

Titles of Mayor's Pillars: Prioritizing Our Youth, Building Public Safety, Clean and Healthy Communities, Equitable Neighborhood Development, and Responsible Stewardship.

 

Who is part of Results Teams?

Results Teams include representatives from City agencies, City residents, a BBMR analyst, and a chair person.

A strong Results Team member is someone who is:

  • an analytical thinker
  • inquisitive and asks important and challenging questions
  • organized and responsive
  • able to see how the different City services fit together to achieve our higher goals as a City
  • objective and able to separate their agency's or organization's asks from the broader activity
  • engaged and active around the budget
