Course Description

  • As a public servant we know that understanding and properly completing central agency documents can be overwhelming and confusing. When you join Memorandum to Cabinet Development Process, our highly rated facilitators will clearly review and practice the process employed in the development of MCs, as well as give you an appreciation of the purpose, structure and mandate of Cabinet and its key committees.
  • We will walk you through each step of the development of the key recommendations for Cabinet consideration and cover the roles played by central agencies in reviewing your Cabinet submissions.
  • While both webinars are designed as stand-alone offerings, Memorandum to Cabinet Development Process and Demystifying the Treasury Board Submission Process pair well together as core central agency offerings. You can pair the two courses in a two-day offering for a discounted rate.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will learn when a MC is required and when it is not
