Budget management [Budgeting and financial management in the public sector]
Public sector managers are often responsible for providing quality service with limited available resources. Yet, the demand for public services keeps growing. It is now more important than ever for managers to be effective and efficient in budgeting and financial management in the public sector. Yet, they seldom have the support or the formal training to do so effectively.
This book is part of the series called, ‘Essential skills for the public sector’. The book includes topics such as: the process of devolvement, preparing budgets, controlling and monitoring budgets, understanding financial information, and the link between management and financial management.
The book encourages learning and continuous improvement. Written in simple English, the book is accessible to everyone involved in the budgeting procedure. The book helps managers to provide improved value for money service, which benefits the whole community.
This book is also available as an eBook. Contact HB publications for more information about the content of the book.
