Are you dreading the upcoming annual budget battle? Are this year’s decisions even more difficult than usual? Wondering how to deal with the risks at the various stages of the public financial management cycle?

This course will prepare you to manage the complete processes of budgeting and budget execution, as well as the planning and delivery of services.


Whom is this course for

This workshop is for all officials related to budget management, including:

  • Finance professionals experienced in preparing budgets
  • Service managers who need to understand budgets and financial and operational management reports
  • Auditors

This course is directly relevant for officials in European institutions/agencies, ministries, national executive agencies, regional governments, municipalities, and other public sector bodies.


Course methodology and highlights

This course will include examples and case studies to demonstrate how things work across the EU at the national and sub-national levels.

You will participate in exercises to get a practical understanding of the processes and the challenges. You will also be able to discuss with our experts and other participants specific challenges that you are facing in your financial management process.

We will lead this course once again in partnership with OECD’s Territorial Governance Department, so we can continue to provide you with our joint expertise on proven processes and insights gathered from relevant case studies.
