The article must be related to explaining how political developments and movements have influenced the practice of budgeting and financial management in the public sector. In your critique, address the following questions/points: What are the main points and arguments of the author(s)? What is your opinion of the article? How does the article relate to your experience or current job in the public or nonprofit sector? How can the points and arguments of the author(s) be applied to the public sector in a practical sense? The critique should be roughly 500 words in length (approximately two double-spaced pages). Be sure to cite all borrowed, quoted, and paraphrased material appropriately in APA format. Your professor is most interested in your opinion (the second and third bullet points above). Unit II Essay Compose an essay of no less than 500 words discussing the topics covered in this unit. Your essay should include a description of at least three jobs that budgetary and financial management professionals may perform in the public sector. Discuss how these types of jobs are similar or different than the prevailing theory within the field of budgetary or financial management. Also, discuss how the practice of budgeting and financial management is influenced by external, environmental, economic, and political factors. Finally, explain how technology has influenced the practice of budgeting and financial management. You must use at least one scholarly source in addition to your textbook to complete this assignment. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. All references and citations used must be in APA style. Unit III PowerPoint Presentation You are a budget and finance professional for a mid-sized county that desperately needs funding for a new county jail, road repair and expansion, and improvements to several schools. Citizens have been resistant to an across-the-board tax increase. As a result, the county commission is considering implementing a Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) or Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST), which would create a special purpose tax only for the aforementioned programs. The county manager has asked you to research the issue and provide a recommendation. Your task is to craft a PowerPoint presentation using no less than six (6) slides (not including the references slide) presenting both the positive and negative arguments to the tax. Then, most importantly, it will contain your recommendation to either adopt the tax or not. Your presentation must be professional and also utilize a minimum of three (3) peer-reviewed sources to substantiate your research and recommendations. These sources must be presented in APA format. PUA 5305, Public Finance and Budgeting 2

3 Unit IV Project Topic The purpose of the assignment is to offer a proposal for your Final Project. Here, offer the following: Identify the agency that you will be addressing for the Final Project. Explain why it intrigues you and warrants examination and assessment. Offer a preliminary list of three (3) peer-reviewed sources you will utilize in your project. Use APA formatting for the references. The proposal should be roughly one (1) to two (2) pages in length (double-spaced). Unit V Mini Project Using your favorite search engine, locate the most recent budget for the state in which you live. After looking over the budget, write an essay consisting of no less than 500 words in which you discuss the following: How do you feel nonconventional expenditures affect finance and budgeting policy in your state? What budgetary tools were used to deal with the nonconventional expenditures? How did the political considerations of the state legislature and governor determine which nonconventional expenditures were funded first? Do you feel that government should be involved more or less in welfare policy? Explain your position. Unit VI PowerPoint Presentation Your task is to craft a detailed, professional PowerPoint presentation creating a plan to involve citizens in the budgeting and financial management processes of a municipality or small county. Be as specific as possible and substantiate your plan with at least three (3) peer-reviewed journal articles. Make sure your references are cited using APA format. The plan should be structured as if it were going to be presented to the city council or county commission. Be sure to include information about the consequences that could result if the citizens are not allowed a voice in financial planning. The presentation should be no less than six (6) slides (not including the references slide). Unit VII Article Critique Your task is to offer a detailed critique of a peer-reviewed article you locate in the CSU Online Library. The article must be related to debt management and the various ways it is handled in the public sector. In your critique, address the following questions/points: What are the main points and arguments of the author(s)? What is your opinion of the article? How does the article relate to your experience or current job in the public or nonprofit sector? How can the points and arguments of the author(s) be applied to the public sector in a practical sense? The critique should be roughly 500 words in length (approximately two double-spaced pages). Be sure to cite all borrowed, quoted, and paraphrased material appropriately in APA format. Your professor is most interested in your opinion (the second and third bullet points above). Final Project The Final Project for this course bridges the gap between theory and practice in public budgeting and financial management by focusing on what professionals and administrators actually do in the field. To this end, your task is to analyze an actual budget, offering insight, analysis, and recommendations about the chosen agency. PUA 5305, Public Finance and Budgeting 3

4 Your first task is to find a public budget to analyze. It is suggested you focus on a city/county department, a small municipality/township, a school district, a special district (such as a forest preserve district, stadium district, or water district), a community college, a small public university, or a single state agency. Be sure not to choose a budget that is too large to analyze in one written exercise. Most budgets are readily available on the institution s website or by contacting the budgeting/finance department. Many local libraries will also have these documents. In your analysis, you should address the following items/questions: Offer a brief overview of your chosen agency. What are its primary functions and roles in the community? This section should be at least one (1) page. Describe the purpose, structure, and functioning of your chosen public organization. Information could include: mission, services, number of employees, brief history, etc. What are the primary expenditures for your chosen agency? This section should be at least two (2) pages. Describe how the agency allocates its resources. What are the primary expenditures? How, specifically, do these expenditures determine public policy priorities and governmental strategies? Has the agency s budget increased or decreased since last year? What does this indicate about the success of the agency and its ability to deliver services? Is the agency allocating resources wisely? What recommendations would you offer, in terms of resource allocation, for the agency in the future? This section should be at least two (2) pages. Is the agency allocating its resources and funds wisely in your opinion? What changes should be made? Should priorities be shifted? If so, how? What recommendations would you offer for the future? The conclusion should be approximately one (1) page. Offer some concluding remarks about the future of the organization based upon your assessment and recommendations. The entire budgetary analysis should be a minimum of six pages in length and should be submitted in Unit VIII. The Final Project must incorporate no fewer than five (5) peer-reviewed journal articles to bolster your analysis of the budget. You should be able to apply the theories learned in class to your case. The project must conform to APA format, and all sources must be properly cited and referenced. Title page, running head, and abstract are not required. The reference page does not count towards the six page minimum. This budget analysis is detailed extensively in Units IV and VIII.
