Paul Title: Vice President and Treasurer Management Partners July 16, 2019 Ms. Nadine Hade Finance Director City of San Rafael 1400 Fifth Avenue San Rafael, CA 94901 Dear Ms. Hade: Thank you for the opportunity to provide this proposal to construct a multi-year financial forecast model for the City of San Rafael. We understand you are interested in a model that focuses on the General Fund and internal service funds as necessary to provide managers and policy makers with a clear vision of the fiscal landscape and a means for seeing how expenditure and operational decisions will impact long-term fiscal status. Once our fiscal model is completed and shared with the City, we will develop training materials and train staff on its use. We have developed special expertise in developing long-range forecasting models to help our clients with budget and financial management and would be pleased to assist you. This proposal explains in detail the process Management Partners will use to construct a fiscal model suited to San Rafael's needs. Before describing the details of how we approach fiscal modeling, we would like to share some information about our firm's background and experience.

We understand the importance of a holistic approach to improving organizations, using field-tested techniques for each aspect of the work Our Work Plan is Tailored to Your Needs. Each of our projects is individually tailored to our client's unique needs, starting with a careful learning process. We Take Pride in the Quality of Our Work. Our internal processes ensure first-rate, complete staff work and adherence to the highest of ethical standards in public service. We are Focused on Implementation. As practitioners, our recommendations make practical sense and are able to be implemented. We Provide a Full Suite of Services. Management Partners' services include everything required to support local government leaders, including organization assessments, performance management, process improvement, strategic planning, and financial modeling, planning, budgeting and analysis. Financial and business planning is an important part of our work, and helping local governments address the effects of the recent recession has been an area of major emphasis. Working with cooperating local governments to identify and implement shared service delivery has also been an area of particular competence, especially in the current economic environment. As explained below, we have a model that is customized, but informed by extensive experience and best practices, that can be handed to City staff to use and modify going forward. UNDERSTANDING OF THE ENGAGEMENT Development of a long-term fiscal model is an important step in taking a long-range view of financial sustainability. This can serve as a fundamental resource in long-term service planning. Management Partners can complete a fiscal model, designed to San Rafael's specifications, in three to four months. It can then be used to see the effects of different scenarios involving expenditure and revenue variables. We will produce a 10- to 20 -year forecast for the City that includes all major costs and anticipated revenue. It will include costs related to employees, including obligations from the Marin County Employees Retirement System (MCERA), other post -employment benefits (OPEB), salaries, and other compensation. The model will focus on the General Fund and will include internal service funds to fully support it. The model will have a user-friendly dashboard so assumptions can be easily changed with respect to revenue growth, pension obligations, expenditure assumptions by line item and other factors. We will coordinate closely with San Rafael staff to obtain data necessary for a solid financial forecast. Once we complete the model, it wi l be available for use by staff in the future_ We will provide training and a user's guide so City staff can update the forecast themselves as needed. PROPOSED PLAN OF WORK Based on our experience with financial sustainability and our understanding of San Rafael's needs, we have prepared a plan of work to provide a long-term fiscal projection. This framework is amenable to refinements based on your input. Activities 1 through 5 comprise Phase I of the project, which is development of the forecast model. Phase II is an optional Activity 6 involving recommendations for sustainable budget strategies. Ms. Nadine Hade Page 3 Management Partners will begin this project with a kickoff meeting with San Rafael's team. During this meeting we will refine the schedule, discuss the project objectives, and review the tasks to be completed. After this initial kickoff meeting, we will prepare and submit a document and data request to the City. Al !:IVity 1 !-i 10'••1 nf,-,I-'111t1o:l 111d 0:1t.. Next, we will initiate a careful learning phase to understand San Rafael's current fiscal status and environment. We will review City services and service levels, multi-year budget information, incuding revenue sources and amounts, expenditure allocations, reserves and other funds, budgetary reductions and cost shifts that have been made to date, the local community, the City's labor environment, pension data from the Marin County Employee's Retirement Association (MCERA), and other relevant factors. During this activity, we will compile data to be used throughout the analytical phase of the project. This will include the General Fund long-term forecast, budgets, department budgetary recommendations, analytical work, labor agreements and other pertinent information. In addition, we will review budgeting approaches and test budget assumptions against actual experience, and review and factor in the City's inventory of unmet or deferred infrastructure and maintenance needs, to the extent the information is available. Other data essential to this project will come from executive managers. To maximize our efficiency in this area, we will utilize previous work products developed by City staff as part of the budget process, which may include suggestions and ideas from staff. AL-tivity 3 Develop Fla seIinP Fisral 'rl end i"9,,i cf _I Next, we will analyze the data gathered through the previous activities. We will meet with financial staff and develop assumptions and parameters. We will identify historical trends and create a forecast giving a comprehensive perspective of the factors affecting the financial capacity of the City. This analysis will provide a sound basis for understanding San Rafael's financial ability to fund services during the next 10 to 20 years. We will develop a long-range budget forecasting model based on this information using our fiscal modeling approach, which incorporates accounting, payroll and other data, to enable the City to run a wide range of alternative forecast scenarios. Activity 4 - Report Results Typically, we develop a draft forecast and then review it in person with managers to refine and validate our assumptions. We are careful to tie back all model data to San Rafael's source documents and to fully explain the assumptions underlying the model. After reviewing the model with staff, we will make refinements and develop a final model suitable for presentation. The culmination of this activity will be to hold a meeting with you and the City Manager to review the fiscal model. A unique feature of our modeling approach is the ability to change key variables on a dynamic basis so participants can get a feel for how these variables impact fiscal position. For example, we can vary COLA assumptions as well as assumptions about staff increases and a host of other variables in real time to facilitate discussion and understanding. Ms. Nadine Hade Page 4 At 'I�ty Supuoi t Im'pk.�Iliol ; 1.,. , Management Partners has a strong bias for action. Our reports and resulting recommendations become tools for setting priorities, and for developing work plans. When developing a fiscal model our p,an is to train staff on all the capabi ities of the model with the expectation that the staff w-11 "own" and begin using the model as a daily tool After our presentation, we Wil train staff on the model. We Wi provide documentation in a user's manual. lr y f, - _11trat-% t- , ,ii. i Mon, Phase II of this proposal involves developing strategies and recommendations for fiscal sustainability. This portion of the contract is for 40 hours of consultant work, not to exceed $7,600. This will be billed an an hourly basis, as hours are incurred at the discretion of the City.

The model conta ns modifiable assumptions affect ng ma,or revenue and expenditure types, with a focus on funding of major repairs and maintenance for street and bike path resurfacing, facilities and parks. The model can show the impact of various assumptions on fund balances so policy makers can make decisions about sero ce levels, capital project commitments, changes n tax structure, and employee compensation. The model serves as a valuable planning tool that allows city leaders to analyze how budget decisions today will affect future financia sustainability Contact: Ms. Kelly Stachowicz, Assistant City Manager 23 Russell Blvd Davis, CA 95616 (530) 757-5602 kst,1(howu i((,)( ityold ivv, ur1; City of Hayward, California Project: Management Partners developed a long-term fiscal model of the City of Hayward.

Management Partners also worked with City staff to develop budget strategies to offset a structural budget deficit and restore financial stability. Approximately two dozen specific strategies were developed and arranged into decision "packages". The budget strategies were also included in the fiscal model to show the various approaches to resolving the budget problem. At a Saturday work session, City Counc lmembers used the fiscal model with Management Partners and staff to develop a consensus approach.

We prepared a sophisticated, 20 -year fiscal model that incorporated detailed revenue and expenditure forecasting tools based on the city's operating env'ronment and regional economic characteristics. The Ms. Nadine Hade Page 6 model "indicated a $33 million (30%) fiscal gap between revenues and expenditures upon sunset of the City's 0.5% sales tax measure in 2024/25. Our analysis indicated several budget strategies involving revenue enhancements, expenditure controls and cost shifts, and service delivery changes that the city could explore to resolve the fiscal gap before service evel reductions would be necessary. Our work consisted of council and employee interviews, city staff focus groups, engaging labor groups, and research of other approaches used by other agencies. Our work culminated in facilitating a city council workshop to review the fiscal model and budget strategies and their impact. The council was given a hands-on opportunity to work with the model to use a variety of assumptions and scenarios to resolve the fiscal gap. Finally, consensus recommendations were identified through city council deliberations.
