The rapid outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) presents an alarming health crisis that the world is grappling with. Local governments in BC are responding quickly by activating emergency response plans, identifying essential services requiring uninterrupted access, transitioning to remote work environments and demonstrating resilience and agility in adapting to daily changes. Finance functions have been focused on not only business as usual during a busy budget, year end and tax time, but also cash flow management and forecasting.
