following fundamental components of an integrated strategic planning and budget process:
- Creation of a 5-year financial forecast that defines the County's budgetary structural deficit and resulting fiscal challenges,
- Identification of County financial policies and practices that need to be strengthened or modified,
- Development of a new process for estimating County revenues that ensures that revenue estimates made during all phases of the budget process are realistic and based on solid analysis, and
- Development of a space plan that identifies County facilities that are currently underutilized, estimates the potential market value of County facilities and plans for the potential relocation of County functions to maximize the utilization of County facilities while vacating and making surplus underutilized facilities.
