Introduction and event description

Avoiding cost overruns when planning and implementing public programs or various procurement projects requires careful and prudent cost projections.

In this two-day workshop, former watchdog and civil servant, Canada's first Parliamentary Budget Officer, shares with you his years of oversight on the costing of government policies, federal programs, and proposals.

Workshop opportunities such as this don't come along every day. Cost projection for entire societies is no easy task. But Mr. Page breaks down the process and makes it comprehensible.

Register for this workshop and learn from a prominent insider about how public funds are managed.
