Governmental Financial Condition Analysis

PADM-GP.4121, 2 points.

Semester: Spring


This course will provide you with basic skills to analyze and assess the financial condition of general-purpose state and local governments. The assessment process covers the entity’s short-term financial position, revenues, expenditures, debt, and pensions. The course examines the influence of economics, demographics and political / administrative factors on each of these elements. The analysis takes account of the entity’s trends in relation to the trends of a peer group of entities as well as “rules of thumb” and medians developed by credit-rating agencies and other analysts.
