This course will focus on the basic tools finance officers need in managing their obligations. The course will emphasize GFOA best practices and advisories that have been developed to help governments make appropriate decisions about their debt issuance and management practices and procedures, and to be in compliance with the constantly evolving rules and regulations that govern the municipal securities market. Numerous GFOA best practices will be highlighted in a variety of areas, including: the importance of aligning debt with the details of the government's capital improvement plan; developing a debt policy; selecting finance professionals; choosing the right debt instruments; choosing competitive versus negotiated sales; watching out for issues with derivatives and some taxable bonds; understanding issuer disclosure responsibilities; and understanding refundings. Each of these important topics will use the GFOA's best practices, advisories, and checklists.
