AABPA is Proud to Announce the Results of the
2013 Federal Budget Survey

Interrupted Journey: The Road to Better Budgeting

This year’s results revealed that federal budget professionals are frustrated with a budget process that is not working as it should and could. A follow up to the 2011 survey report, The Road Forward, this year’s report found that budgeteers are working hard but are not making much progress. Budgeteers are not so much providing financial leadership as they are trying simply to minimize damage. The report also found that budgeting today is more critical than ever because of the widening gap between what that government wants to do and what it can afford to do.

I'm forming an online learning circle for people to share recommendations, resources, and effective practices on participatory budgeting.

We'll start when there are 20 people who are interested in being active participants (pioneers who can share a few short questions or useful links each week for a few weeks to get the group started).

Eventually this group will be open to all and there is a way to integrate knowledge from that learning circle into this GovLoop group so that we're not split in two locations-- the tools can complement each other very well.

Please email me at if you're interested. I'm looking forward to co-creating a great asset with many folks here for the rest of the Participatory Budgeting Community.
