As a government leader, you don’t have to be an expert in finance, however, you do need to understand your jurisdiction’s financial position and speak confidently about its financial health. The goal of this Guide is to provide newly elected officials, budget officers, government leaders and department heads with the necessary tools to understand their jurisdiction’s financial health. It offers basic definitions, strategies to assess and communicate financial health to stakeholders, and solutions on how to overcome some of the biggest threats so public leaders can improve their jurisdiction’s financial health now and in the future.
