When you budget by programs, you are speaking in the language of policy, priorities, and services — a language that is understood outside of the accounting and budget office. When your elected officials, management, and other policy makers can participate in decisions, you can get a higher level of understanding and commitment to financial plans. At this session, you will learn how to build an inventory of the programs in your government and how to use those programs to make better budgeting decisions.
