The Governor’s new outcomes-based budget process ends the practice of prioritizing spending by agency and institutes a process of prioritizing programs for available funding because they deliver results, regardless of which agency delivers the service.
It is the Governor’s responsibility to recommend a balanced budget to the Legislature – Program Funding Teams served as advisors to the Governor in the preparation of his budget.
Program Funding Teams were formed for each outcome area in the strategic framework of the 10-Year Plan. Characteristics of the teams included:
·       Citizen volunteers were selected by the Governor for their leadership, experience and
      general familiarity with Oregon.
·       Members represented the geographic and cultural diversity of Oregon, bringing fresh
      voices and perspectives to inform the Governor’s process to create a focused
      outcome-based budget.
Teams assisted the Governor in assessing funding priorities for state government by applying personal knowledge and experience.

Program Funding Teams considered each program and made recommendations to the Governor about appropriate funding levels given resources available in the outcome area.
