Course Description: This course consists of two (2) modules. All managers – whether in child development, arts and crafts, clubs, golf, or any of the myriad of Family and MWR activities – must prepare budgets that forecast and document the requirements to operate their program. Students will be introduced to the NAF budgeting process to include the elements of NAF budget submissions, approval process and NAF budgetary constraints. Students will also gain an overall knowledge of APF budging and execution cycle, how APF flows under UFM and identify the Management Decision Packages (MDEPs) that fund Family and MWR programs. In the second module, students will learn how to determine budget requirements, prepare the Manager’s Budget Narrative, quantify the budget requirements and determine the funding source for those requirements.
