GFOA Executive Board Adopts Two Best Practices
Thursday, October 3, 2019 in Media
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.

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