Seminar: Demystifying Local Government Finance for Private Sector & Partners

This seminar is specifically designed to highlight key issues and information that potential private sector partners must understand to effectively win and retain contracts within local councils.

Local councils work with a wide variety of private sector suppliers and partners to deliver essential public services to their communities. However, the way that councils are governed and controlled, how decisions are made and where the finance comes from is very different from the private sector.

Therefore, a solid understanding of such matters is essential for any private sector organisation seeking to do business in the local government marketplace.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand how local government is organised, and the role of elected members.
- Understand how budgets are formulated and agreed and key sources of funding for local government.
- Use and interpret key financial documents.
- Appreciate what local councils require from private sector partners and suppliers.
