  18. 18. Expectations, results and response …  Establish and communicate expectations  Establish the expectation that the 1+60 will achieve sustainable revenue levels in three years, reducing the budget by one third (~$500 million) of the difference between the starting point (the WIP) and the goal (the final sustainable number, after transition) each year  Measure results  Identify the amount by which the operating budget (and each component) needs to be reduced and monitor progress in HFIN subcommittee process  Identify the amount to which the capital budget needs to be held and monitor progress in SFIN 18
  19. 19. Expectations, results and response …  Prepare to respond  Support those of the 1+60 who meet expectations  But any who do not see the current situation as a fiscal crisis requiring a response never will – they will always look for ways to kick the can down the road  Be prepared to respond by encouraging and supporting a year long primary challenge to any of the 1+60 who fail to support even a first step by  Voting yes in subcommittee/committee for agency budgets above the transition level  Voting yes for a final budget above the transition level 19
