Course Description Course Description

Government administrators should manage programs and services with due regard to value for money (VFM).  Public auditors should ensure their audits provide information to their legislative bodies about how well government is spending public funds in accordance with VFM practices.  Good governance for public sector demands a focus on managing for results rather than managing inputs.  Many governments focus, for example, on their budgets and measure success on how well budgeted amounts are spent.  The concepts are generally easy to understand for most public servants, however, it is far more challenging to put into practice.  Governments throughout the world are challenged to ensure that all legislation, policies, practices and systems ensure that government achieve economy, efficiency and effectiveness in their day-to-day operations.
