Courts can only play their vital role in society if they have adequate financial resources. This course provides the knowledge required to maximize court funding. Learn the building blocks of finance and discover how to plan, prepare, review, present, execute, and monitor a budget. Experience a journey inside the mind of the funding authority. Learn tips to “bring home the bacon” in an economic climate where courts compete with other agencies for scarce resources. Review practical steps courts can take during difficult fiscal times.

Participants will engage in discussions and exercises designed to develop an understanding of how to manage a court’s financial resources. Topics include:

  • Financial foundations and reporting
  • The synergy between strategic planning and budgeting
  • The full budget cycle
  • Surviving budget reductions
  • Success through informal contacts
  • Understanding the mind of the funding authority
