Budgeting Best Practices

GFOA's Committee on Governmental Budgeting works to develop and communicate GFOA's best practice statements on budgeting. All best practices are available on GFOA's website and provide guidance on all areas of budgeting. The Distinguished Budget Presentation Award works to encourage governments to adopt these practices.
