Value-for-money is at the core of a well-functioning expenditure management system. But, how is value defined? How can effectiveness and efficiency be balanced with public interest? In this microcourse, you will learn principles and tools for framing and understanding value, performance measurement and budgeting. You will apply these concepts to case studies based on actual events, exploring how evidence and data are required to assess performance toward the realization of value for money.
Note: Course evaluations are not required. However, they become a requirement if you wish to have the 1 credit of the course recognized in an undergraduate program at the University of Ottawa. This course is worth 12 hours.
