The IOG is offering a two-day special, guiding you through the two key documents that underpin the federal government decision-making process. Two 3-hour webinars will be offered on two consecutive days, for policy, program and communications professionals.

Demystifying the Treasury Board Submission Process provides a Guide to Preparing TB Submissions, to understand what the Treasury Board Secretariat wants, how the submission process works, and want to gain a better understanding of the sometimes-confusing process. It also focuses on the role of the Treasury Board Secretariat in the Federal Government.

The Memorandum to Cabinet webinar provides an overview of the process employed in the development of a Memorandum to Cabinet, as well as an appreciation of the purpose, structure and mandate of Cabinet and its key committees. The webinar walks participants through each step of the development of the key recommendations for Cabinet consideration, and covers the roles played by central agencies in reviewing your Cabinet submissions.

Note: The two day Memo to Cabinet/TB Sub Special, the How Ottawa Works for Scientists, and the Briefings on Demand Two Day Special are not included in the bundle offering.
