Certificate in Local Government Financial Administration
Municipalities are responsible for the spending and accounting of large amounts of public money. The public trusts that this money is being administered wisely on their behalf. In order to meet this standard of care, local governments need to have employees that have a good working knowledge of the basic concepts of budgeting, accounting, finance, taxation and assessment.
This certificate provides much of the information contained in the Certificate in Local Government Administration but with a greater emphasis on financial administration within local government.
