Policies & Procedures for Key Financial Functions
The MGFOA Accounting Standards Committee has developed policies and recommended procedures for use in your community. The policies cover key financial functions, including:
|Capital Assets||Grants Management|
|Debt Management||Payroll & Expense Reimbursement|
While each document was created and reviewed by members of the Committee, it is important to note that these documents are not a ‘one size fits all’ solution. Finance officials seeking to use these documents should consult their respective government agency’s charter as well as their agency’s legal counsel.
Please visit the RESOURCES page of the site to view the documents.
If you would like to suggest any changes to these documents, please email the Standards Committee via Joe Heffernan.
