Presents a strategic understanding of Federal budgeting and appropriations, with particular attention to the role of Congress. With this critical understanding, students develop leadership strategies to shape the fiscal environment to achieve agency strategic outcomes. Focuses on the impact of current fiscal issues including the competition between discretionary and nondiscretionary spending and its likely impact upon agency activities, the dynamic interaction between agency, executive, and Congressional committees and staffs in developing a budget and gaining an appropriation.

the future of financial reporting and standards ffr
The Future of Financial Reporting and Standards - FFR

Focuses on the changing directions of financial and management reporting for Chief Financial Officers in a dynamic environment. In response to changing citizen and shareholder expectations, financial statement reporting, budgetary reporting, cost reporting, and cash reporting must be accurate, transparent, and accountable, and result in “clean” audit opinions. These new reporting expectations and changing accounting standards, require new relationships among federal, state, and local governments, and government contractors, as well as enhanced reporting to internal constituents of the CFO, including program managers and the organizational head.

Past Guest Speakers from FASAB, Treasury and OMB.
