Linking Budget to Strategy in Local Government Survey
You are invited to participate in ClearPoint Strategy's survey on Linking Budget to Strategy in Local Government. In this survey, you will be asked to complete a survey that asks questions about your strategy and budget processes, and how COVID-19 may have affected these processes. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete the questionnaire.

While optional, we suggest reading ClearPoint Strategy's Linking Budget to Strategy in Local Government whitepaper as it may help with various definitions used throughout the survey.

Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. There are no foreseeable risks associated with this project. It is very important for us to learn your opinions. For completing the survey, you will be entered in a drawing for one of 25 $10 Amazon gift cards.

Your survey responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate. Your information will be coded and will remain confidential. Thank you very much for your time and support!
