GFOA Executive Board Adopts Two Best Practices

Thursday, October 3, 2019 in Press

While the GFOA has had best practices on collateralization and cash flow forecasting, respectively, the newly adopted best practices clarify and update the protocol. Specifically, the best practice, Collateralizing Public Deposits addresses responsibility for monitoring collateral, and underscores the appropriateness of using federal agency Letters of Credit for security. Similarly, the best practice, Using Cash Flow Forecasts for Treasury and Operations Liquidity stresses the importance of having cash flow forecasts on a rolling, rather than fiscal year, basis, and reviews the tools available to conduct such forecasts (simple spreadsheets to financial reporting system module).

Best Practices on a range of topics can be found at GFOA Best Practices.
