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 in an atmosphere of intense competition from other government entities. Designed for court professionals with varying levels of involvement with the court's budget, this course defines the building blocks of finance and explains how to plan, prepare, review, present, execute, and monitor a budget. Participants will review practical steps courts can take during difficult fiscal times, including maintaining open communication both within the court and with justice partners. In addition, the relationship between a court's strategic plan and budgeting is explored. New content includes a focus on special budget issues related to facilities management. Throughout the course, participants engage in discussions and exercises designed to develop an understanding of how to manage a court's financial resourses.
