Meritorious Budget Award: An Opportunity to Enhance Strategic Planning
McKenzie, Anne; Bishop, Anna
School Business Affairs, v75 n7 p23-25 Jul-Aug 2009
In times of economic uncertainty, local budgets undergo increased scrutiny. School boards and district administrators must collaborate to ensure the highest standards of budget development, implementation, and oversight. Those charged with the fiscal management of school districts must gain the public's confidence in their budgeting abilities. Budget recognition and award programs sponsored by professional organizations help district leaders develop high-quality budget documents that act as powerful communication tools. The Meritorious Budget Awards program offered through ASBO International requires organizations to submit a budget document describing organizational goals and objectives, expenditures and revenues, financial summaries, and performance-based measurements tied to resource allocation. Preparing a Meritorious Budget Award submittal offers many benefits, which include: (1) improved strategic planning; (2) board of education and public confidence; and (3) reciprocal learning.
