It is with deep regret that that we must convey that the Chairman of the Illinois Budgeting for Results Commission and our friend Steve Schnorf passed away February 27, 2017, after a brief battle with cancer. The thoughts and prayers of the Commission and the GOMB team are with Steve’s family and friends.
We are grateful for the time that we had with Steve and for his leadership in the Budgeting for Results arena. The greatest tribute to Steve and his legacy is to continue our efforts to carry out the reforms he has championed over the past six years on the Commission. We will provide details for any planed memorial services as they become available.
I will just conclude by say saying that Illinois, and indeed the world, is a better place for having had Steve Schnorf.

Private business and the foundation community have long employed data-driven, results-based budgeting to improve performance by clearly defining and aligning objectives within and across organizations. Many state and local governments also have adopted some version of performance-based budgeting. Budgeting for Results will help government agencies set priorities, meet their goals and deliver the best possible value to taxpayers.
