Santa Ana, Calif. (December 18, 2023) – The 2023 Strategic Financial Plan (SFP) will be presented to the Board of Supervisors on December 19, 2023, and is posted online with the Board of Supervisors’ Agenda. To view the County’s past Strategic Financial Plans, click here.
The County’s budget development begins with the SFP, an annual strategic financial planning process that includes a five-year revenue and expense forecast as well as identification of strategic priorities and emerging initiatives. The SFP provides a framework for testing budget assumptions and aligning available resources with operating requirements; implementing new programs and facilities; and serves as the foundation for the development of the upcoming fiscal year budget. Additionally, the SFP includes capital and information technology project proposals facilitating early evaluation of project viability and economic feasibility. This framework enables the Board of Supervisors (Board) to make annual funding decisions within the context of a comprehensive, long-term perspective. The SFP emphasizes the County must ensure its resources and programs are aligned with countywide strategic priorities and values.
