A Guide for Preparing a Debt Policy
This publication in GFOA’s “Documents on Disk” series provides unique assistance with debt policy development through two products: a booklet that presents an overview of the subject and an accompanying diskette containing files with sample debt policies from eight jurisdictions. The samples are accessible in WordPerfect 6.1 and ASCII text formats, and were chosen to illustrate the range of issues that may be addressed in a debt policy. For ease of use, the booklet contains a table that summarizes key elements of a debt policy, and indicates where each of these elements can be found in the selected samples. Taken together, these helpful references can be used to provide focus and direction to the debt policy development process.
