Overview of Central Government Finance
For those working in finance positions within the Public Sector or Civil Service, it can often be the case that, despite the fact public finance decisions are systematic, it is unclear how the decision process works, what the reasoning behind various decisions is or who is responsible.
Designed for both finance and non-finance staff, this training course delivers a unique and broad overview of the responsibilities, accountabilities and systems behind public finance. It introduces a clear context for the government’s financial position and demonstrates how this can be translated into the process of delivery through Parliamentary Supply, Treasury Control and the roles and responsibilities of those who manage public finances.
