Does your Agency want to be able to run funding scenarios during meetings with real time results and charts, and project out for future years (e.g., 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, etc.)? If the answer is yes, prepare your decision makers to make educated financial decisions by attending this presentation and learn how the City of Sacramento, Department of Utilities (DOU) has modernized long-range financial planning with the Synario Software system. Learn how to utilize Synario for utility rate modeling to develop funding strategies for large capital projects that include a mix of utility rates, bonds, and grants.
Viewers will see a demonstration of the Synario Rate Model software system, including base cash flow summaries, key metrics, alternative scenarios, and initiatives. The base cash flow summaries reflect the beginning fund balances, revenues, expenditures, debt services, capital investments, and ending fund balances. The key metrics are targets configured into the system, updated in real-time as alternative scenarios, and initiatives are toggled for what-if scenarios. These tools are valuable resources for decision-makers about long-range financial planning initiatives.
PRESENTERS: Dean Fujimoto – Long-Range Financial Planning Manager, Brian Martin – Long-Range Financial Planning Manager, Tyler Stratton – Capital Finance & Grants Manager
