The typical government budgeting process spans many months, and individuals from all departments and levels of the organization participate. The act of budgeting requires difficult decisions related to an organization’s priorities, goals for the upcoming year, and how it plans on serving the community. To ensure that all stakeholders support the final budget and execute it effectively, the budget process must provide for sufficient collaboration and be perceived as fair. This course will walk through a typical local government budget process, with special emphasis on how GFOA’s Financial Foundations Framework can be utilized to emphasize basic principles essential to a successful budget process.
