Who Should Attend

This course is designed for Federal civilian, active military, and federal contractors who currently work in or support the Federal budget cycle.  This course is also a good fit for acquisition professionals, individuals who would like to transition to the budget analyst (560) series, project managers, administrative professionals, travel managers, any staff who have budget-related “other duties as assigned,” or anyone else who would benefit from an overview of the Federal budgeting process.  

Course Overview

Article 1, Section 8 of The United States Constitution designates the power of the purse as a function of Congress.  The Federal budget process, as defined in the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974, is the methodology through which the power of the purse is executed.  In this course, we will walk through each of the major phases and timing of the annual budget cycle.  Utilizing information sharing and hands-on individual and group activities, class participants will acquire practical and relevant information on the Federal budget process and its impact on their organization and their position.
