Understand and interpret county financial reports
369 County Financial Reporting and Budgeting for Nonfinancial Professionals
This course provides the tools for decision-makers, elected officials, senior managers – other than accountants and auditors – who want to have an overview understanding of government financial reporting. Participants discuss budgets, financial statements, and the audit, and at the 30,000-foot level what each of those is saying (or not saying!). Participants should bring questions about terms or concepts they have encountered as part of their interaction with county and government financial reporting. The discussion reviews terms and definitions used with government financial reporting and strategies on how to read financial statements and auditor reports to identify critical information and understand what it means … in plain English!
Instructors: Robert Bendorf, retired Yuba County CAO and Leanne Link, Assistant CAO at Sutter County.
