To prepare and report accurate fund condition statements for inclusion in the governor's budget each year, Fish and Game should train both new and existing staff on how to prepare fund condition statements for inclusion in the governor's budget.
Fish and Game stated that its budget branch has a primary analyst and back-up analyst assigned to develop fund condition statements and that both current analysts have been trained in using its new written procedures and the worksheet. Fish and Game explained that if staff change, either due to attrition or assignment changes, new staff will be trained in using the written procedures and the worksheet to ensure that the budget branch continues to follow these procedures when developing the fund condition statements.
