    Book description:

    This text is designed for students in Master of Public Administration programs. It could serve as the core text for a comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate course on public financial management.

It covers the core concepts and analytical tools of accounting, financial statement analysis, cost analysis, and budgeting, all with applications to public sector organizations.
