Government finance is filled with uncertainty. When that uncertainty has the potential to lead to loss or disruption in service, the government is faced with risk. Specific focus will be on identifying risk factors and building appropriate plans and policies to guard against cybercrimes, fraud, natural disasters, and other shocks. The course will focus on building the components of a business continuity plan and will include how to manage IT systems, handle accounting tasks, prepare necessary invoices, maintain internal controls, and safely accept and distribute funds during and after a disaster.
