Federal Appropriations Law Refresher and Update

Federal Appropriations Law Refresher and Update


This course provides a periodic refresher and update on federal appropriations law that is needed for the following reasons: 1) Congress passes new laws from time to time; 2) Federal Courts issue new decisions that set precedent; 3) The Comptroller General occasionally renders new decisions or modifies existing decisions. This course brings you up-to-date on all of these changes to federal appropriations law.

Participants will learn to apply appropriations law concepts by completing case studies based on Comptroller General decisions.
