Data may be collected through government documents, newspaper articles or videos, peer-reviewed research papers, legislative hearings of executive statements, and other official records.

Conclude your paper with a personal assessment of the effectiveness of the governmental body’s approach to budget management with regard to public satisfaction, professional accounting, and budgetary standards.
