NCOSS NSW Budget pdf presentation-Evaluate, June 2022

The NSW Budget is the most important annual political, economic and social document in the state. It is the mechanism by which the NSW government appropriates or raises funds for statewide community services and programs. Scrutinising and advocating for appropriate budgets are an important part of NCOSS' work. We invite you to join us as Catherine McGovern (Principal, Evaluate Consulting) gives a primer on the Budget process, just in time for the expected release of the annual NSW Budget on 21 June 2022.
