Evaluating a Government Budget Paper
Use the GFOA Distinguished Budget Award Criteria posted on Canvas as your reference for this project. Then evaluate each criterion based on the local government you selected to review.
The grading for this paper is based on your ability (1) to correctly analyze the budget document, and (2) to include relevant literature from the class reading list to persuade the reader that the criteria in the evaluation are important for good budgeting. Do not write to fill pages, but write for effect. Your grade is inversely proportional to how long it takes me to read and understand your paper!
