  Intermediate/advanced public-sector budget professionals

  Program Overview
  No document plays a more important role in public-sector finance than the annual or biennial operating
  budget. To be effective, the budget must succeed, not only as a policy document and as a financial plan,
  but also as an operations guide and as a communications device. To help public-sector budget profession-
  als prepare better budgets, the GFOA has identified 27 specific criteria for assessing how well a budget
  document meets these different objectives. The GFOA published a full-length book on Preparing High
  Quality Budget Documents and Preparing High Quality Budget Documents for School Districts that
  draw upon a wealth of real-life examples to demonstrate the practical application of each of the criteria.
  This two-hour, live, interactive training session will combine lecture and exercises to explore key examples
  to highlight how to make a good budget even better.

  Faculty: John D. Fishbein, Senior Manager, GFOA Technical Services Center, Chicago, Illinois

                                             Preparing High Quality Budget Documents

                       This comprehensive book draws upon a multitude of real-life examples to demonstrate
                        the practical application of each of the criteria used by the GFOA to evaluate budget
                          documents submitted to its Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program.
                              The examples selected represent a broad cross-section of state and local
                            governments of all types and sizes from both the United States and Canada.
