This one-day course brings to life both the theory and practice of TB submissions to help make submission-writing a surmountable challenge.

Why this is important

To access Canada’s coffers, department heads and managers must satisfy the terms established by the appointed gatekeeper – the Treasury Board Secretariat. A successful Treasury Board submission has to present a thorough and convincing analysis in favour of the proposal – not always an easy task.

If you have problems determining what the Treasury Board Secretariat wants and how the submission process works, gain a better understanding of this sometimes confusing process at the one-day program, Demystifying the Treasury Board Submission Process.

What you will gain

Participants will learn to:

  • How penalties are set and funds allocated
  • The Treasury Board Secretariat’s role in the Federal Government
  • The decision making process
  • Roles and responsibilities of Cabinet, the Privy Council Office and Finance
  • Types of submissions and required elements
  • How results-based expenditure management is driving the system
  • Winning strategies to manage the process and to succeed
