FEI ForwardThinking Q2 Series: Government Controllers Speak

Earn Up To 3 CPE Credits

The role of government has never been more important than it is today, with federal, state and local leaders working with the private sector to lead the US economy out of the financial crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic. With trillions of dollars at stake, government comptrollers are at the tip of the spear in making sure taxpayers’ money is spent wisely and the right private sector partners are working within the system.

Join the Financial Education and Research Foundation (FERF), in cooperation with Robert Half | Protiviti, for the Q2 sessions of a year-long series featuring live, in-depth Q&A discussions with government controllers on the ways they are leading the state and federal government out of the pandemic.
