Directed by the Legislature, driven by our strategic visioning efforts, and building upon our recent budget evaluation work, CDFW is conducting a comprehensive Service Based Budgeting (SBB) review.
The Service Based Budgeting Project at CDFW
SBB is a budgeting approach that identifies the tasks needed to accomplish the Department’s mission. This review will help inform the future budget based on staff time needed to complete these tasks. The SBB approach is task-based, labor-focused, and organized by CDFW’s services to the public.
The SBB project is governed by a team of CDFW executive leaders and is a collaborative effort of managers and employees from across the Department working alongside independent consultants.
The SBB project is a long-term effort running through 2021, when the Service Based Budget Review Report is due to the Legislature. As milestones are accomplished, internal and external stakeholders will be kept informed.
Fish and Game Code section 712.1 directs CDFW to report the status of its SBB activities to relevant budget and policy committees of the Legislature
