Budgeting, accounting, and other financial professionals who develop, review, or utilize user fees.
State and local governments increasingly rely on user charges and fees to not only align pricing and utilization of services, but also for much needed revenue with continuing constraints on more traditional sources. Organizations need a robust process for setting user charges and fees to ensure sound development, including analyzing all factors involved, calculating the full cost of providing the service, integration with long-term planning, and also engaging the public. This training session will include a wide-array of examples of user charges and fees with linkages back to GFOA’s best practices on setting user charges and fees.
