Program Description: 

GFOA’s recent member survey indicated that governments struggle most with implementing best practices related to capital planning and capital budgeting. This session is designed to provide an overview of GFOA’s best practices related to creating a multi-year capital plan that includes prioritizing capital project requests, developing a capital budget, and maintaining ongoing capital asset management. Speakers will include leading government practitioners who will provide case studies illustrating how the finance office can best manage the development of infrastructure, plan and budget for large capital purchases, manage current assets to achieve the best return on investment, and ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the organization.
