Designing a More Collaborative Budget System

Virtual Forum Homepage

When local government folks talk about “the budget,” they often are referring to the document that their governing body has approved that outlines expected revenues and expenses for the upcoming year, but GFOA believes the budget is more than that—it’s a system that includes not only the allocation of resources but also the planning that precedes the allocation of resources as well as monitoring how resources are utilized in support of the government’s goals. In this session, learn how collaboration can help local governments improve their entire budget system--planning, budgeting, and monitoring--in support of a thriving community.
