Responsible Use of Public Funds (G380)


Type: Online
Duration: 02:30 hours
Status: Active

Managers in the federal public service are expected to have a solid understanding of the financial authorities that have been delegated to them. This online self-paced course provides an overview of the management of public funds through responsible planning, spending and reporting. By reviewing helpful examples, participants will learn how to exercise their delegated financial authorities in line with government policies, practices and procedures.

Topics include:

  • developing a work plan and a budget
  • reporting on finances and results
  • exercising delegated spending and financial authorities


This pilot course is still in development and is intended to eventually replace Authority Delegation Training (G110). Until then, this course does not count towards mandatory training requirements.
