Teamwork and Collaboration

Teamwork and collaboration are critical for local governments to excel in public finance. GFOA's Financial Foundations Framework includes building collaboration and trust as one of its five pillars. GFOA members exhibit teamwork and collaboration in a variety of ways and that reflect the unique culture and style of their local government. As part of the Government Finance Review, GFOA has been documenting effective finance teams in local government. Read the case studies below to learn more about the leadership style, culture, and approach to teamwork in several leading governments.

Would you like to nominate an excellent finance team to be featured in GFR?

GFOA is always looking for new examples of excellent finance teams that demonstrate collaboration, teamwork, and a strong work culture. If you know of some that we should feature or would like to volunteer for a feature in an upcoming GFR, please contact Katie Ludwig.
