This may be an organization for which you currently work or have worked, know about from others, or have learned about through academic resources and/or the media, as long as it is not a non-profit organization or a private for-profit organization. With this organization in mind, you will explore the various topics of the course. As you progress through the readings and assignments in the course, think about how these topics relate to finance and budgeting within the organization you selected.
Submit your Final Project, which should contain the following sections (the sections can be reordered for appropriate flow):
The organization selected is the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
1. Mission and goals of the organization.
2. Ethical considerations related to finance and budgeting within the organization.
3. Technological considerations for improving the efficiency or effectiveness of finance and budgeting within the organization.
4. Applicable laws, regulations, and policies impacting the organization’s financial and budgetary operations.
5. Internal factors impacting successful strategic financial planning.
6. Evaluation of the organization’s annual financial report.
7. Evaluation of the organization’s revenue sources.
8. Evaluation of the organization’s expenditures.
9. Assessment of the organization’s overall financial condition.
Your Final Project must demonstrate both breadth and depth of knowledge and critical thinking appropriate to graduate-level scholarship. It must follow the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association guidelines and be free of typographical, spelling, and grammatical errors. Also, you must use at least six scholarly sources from the library that were published within the past five years to support the paper.
The project should be 14–15 pages in length (double-spaced), not including the title page, the abstract, and references.
Be sure to support your Final Project with specific references to all resources used in its preparation.
