Course Description

Effective budgets lead to accurate provisional billing rates that ensure total cost recovery and maximize net operating profit. In short, they provide financial guidelines, help identify and capture all costs, provide targets and goals, and plan for profitability and success. It's an important and time consuming chore. That's why many government contractors find the task of completing a budget to be overwhelming. But it doesn't have to be. If you have the correct, efficient and effective methods to gather the necessary data, creating a budget is less daunting and time consuming. During this webinar we'll show you budgeting best practices, how to align budgets with historical trends, the components of different approaches, and share templates to help you efficiently develop an effective budget.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the top-down and bottom-up methods of budgeting.
  • Explain the role of historical trend analysis.
  • Describe reasons for and timing of budget adjustments.
  • List budgeting best practices.
