Financial Management & Real Property Training

Organizations face many challenges in successfully performing their financial management and real property responsibilities,​ funding ever changing mission requirements with limited resources, and preparing for audit readiness. A lack of knowledge and understanding of core competencies and ERP/budgeting systems can cost an organization in loss of funds, interest penalties, higher costs, violations/fines, low staff productivity, and the inability to support commanders with information to make critical resource-informed decisions.

"This was hands down the best related training I have received in 19 years."
