GFOA's Code of Ethics

Course Overview

This course allows participants to reflect on the professional values identified in GFOA’s Code of Ethics. It also explores the behavioral science that explains why individuals sometimes fall short of their intentions to act ethically in professional contexts.

The course emphasizes practical strategies for:

  • Recognizing the value dimensions of situations public finance officials may face (and resisting the human tendency toward ethical blind spots),
  • Determining what the right thing to do is, and
  • Acting on professional values as a public finance official.

Using the values in GFOA’s Code of Ethics as a framework, the course offers a combination of reflection and application exercises, case studies, peer perspectives and lectures. 

The course is designed to benefit public finance officials at all levels of experience.
