The last trip for the fall semester was to Springfield, Illinois. The students started the day with three presentations at the Office of Management and Budget. Mr. Marc Staley talked about the budgeting process in Illinois and the operating budget. Ms. Alexis Sturm then spoke on capital expenditure, revenue, and debt management. Mr. Curt Clemons-Mosby’s presentation focused on budgeting for results: monitoring the performance and checking the indicators on output and income. After lunch, the students explored the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum.
