FFR - The Future of Federal Financial Information Sharing

This course focuses on the vital role Chief Financial Officers and financial managers have in providing federal financial information. To fully support decision making, this actionable financial information must be timely, accurate, transparent, accountable, and result in “clean” audit opinions. To evaluate the quality of Federal financial information sharing, the course explores the current stovepipes of financial statements, budgetary reporting, program/project cost reporting, and financial standards, as well as a holistic view of crosscutting information such as financial and non-financial dashboards. In addition, successful financial information sharing in the current dynamic environment can be facilitated by financial systems, data management techniques, and effective communication with internal and external users.
