Navigate the Budget Process
Budgetary success in the government can only be achieved through strict adherence to public budgeting principles and an ability to shepherd your budget request through your agency and decision makers. Performance Budgeting for Government Week will equip you with an understanding of the process and the dynamics of each step. This comprehensive training will enable you to achieve more within the public budget process.

Discover Activity-Based Management Techniques
Activity based management provides a decision maker with a complete view of the activities involved in running an organization and the cost of those activities. Understanding the full cost and value of each activity your organization performs will give you the information you need to make budgetary decisions and justify them throughout the process. This training will explain the philosophy and techniques of activity-based management and empower you to implement a system of your own.

Link Performance Measures to your Budget
The Office of Management and Budget mandates that all agencies base their budgets on program performance. The best way to meet that mandate is by integrating your agency’s budget and your performance measures. A performance-driven budget will ensure that your budget is aligned with program priorities and enable you to justify your budget based on program results. This training will explain the importance of performance budgeting and walk you through a plan for constructing a performance-based budget in your organization.
