Course overview

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.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for federal government employees and contractors who have already taken Federal Appropriations Law FINC7100D. In general, an employee should take this refresher and update course if 18 months or more have elapsed since taking the 4-day course.
