About this course

Over the course of the workshop, you will refresh your understanding of the MOD annual budgeting cycle, the roles of finance staff in the process and the MOD’s planning budgeting and forecasting system. The workshop then focuses on re-profiling cost lines, identifying and costing potential risks, rebalancing and reprogramming and producing options to return to a position of affordability.  The course assumes a level of prior knowledge of the MOD’s finance function.
