The focus of this course is almost entirely on the expenditure side of public financial management, looking at budgeting, accountability and the changes in financial management. In professions across the public sector, whether medical, educational, legal, engineering or custodial, people are making choices about investments, about how to achieve efficiency, how to stay within budget and how to improve performance. Officers have to understand costs, budgets, financial statements about cash flows, and expenditures, even when they are not in accountancy.

At the end of the course each delegate will be able to: 

  • Understand how public budgeting fits into the macroeconomic framework
  • Apply ideas about accountability to the production of various forms of account for public services and public money
  • Understand how changes in public management require different forms of public accounting
  • Read a budget and a set of national accounts and understand the differences between budgets and accounts in different jurisdictions
  • Understand costs and different ways of measuring them and how costs are used in budgets
  • Understand the budget process at national and sub-national levels and the techniques appropriate at different levels
  • Apply budgetary control methods
  • Use financial management to enhance the performance of public organizations
  • Appreciate how public financial management interfaces with politics and political choices
