Council created the Select Committee on a Core Services Review to oversee the work of a core services review, and contracted the firm KPMG through a competitive bid process to examine the services provided by the City of Prince George and offer recommendations concerning program/service mandates, opportunities for expense reduction and revenue diversification, and operational efficiency.

KPMG presented its Draft Final Report and Recommendations to the Select Committee on a Core Service Review on November 2, 2012.  The Final Report was provided to the City on November 8, 2012.

The Case For Change

Like so many communities across Canada, this City’s infrastructure (water, sewer, roads and buildings) is aging. We are not investing enough to repair and replace the City’s infrastructure. A significant portion of the City’s annual budget goes to paying principal and interest on the City’s debt. City Council needs to determine what is affordable for this community. A Core Services Review will consider a full range of opportunities for change, from increasing revenues to reducing spending, and from improving efficiencies to introducing different ways of delivering services.

City Council needs to make certain the City is an efficient organization, providing the right services to our community and delivering the best value for money. We need to achieve savings where we can and redirect our spending to the priority services that need it most. We will also identify other potential sources of revenue and City Council will decide which necessary changes to implement.

The Core Services Review will be carried out in an open way, with participation from all our staff, both management and unionized, the union executives, and from the community, learning from other cities and from our own experience. We will validate what we are doing right and make improvements based on the outcome of the review.
