Capacity Building in Municipal Government Financial Management
The Nova Scotia Municipal Finance Corporation (NSMFC) and the Association of Municipal Administrators of Nova Scotia (AMA) have formed a joint committee with the goal of developing best practices for financial management practices for use by municipalities in Nova Scotia.
The committee strives to be representative of all municipalities in the Province. It is comprised of finance professionals working in towns, regional and rural municipalities as well as representation from Department of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. The committee uses recommended practices that have been developed by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and adapts them to fit to Nova Scotia legislation and practices.
The recommended practices are guidelines for municipalities that are interested in improving their financial management capacity. Municipalities can modify the implementation of the recommended practices in accordance with their size, population, staffing, economic resources etc.
