Two common policies vital in the management of public sector funds are cash management or investment policies as well as debt management policies. The governing body typically takes on the role of establishing policies. Once adopted, these policies establish the framework upon which decisions are made. Two of these policies are critical in managing resources, both cash on hand and borrowed, which are used in funding activities.
