20K Worth of Tips in 15 Minutes: Battling the Budget Brushoff

“It’s just not in the budget.” A phrase often heard when seeking funding for new software. In this 15-minute session, Cindi Mansell, veteran records manager, offers real-world advice on how you can justify the investment in software to support your Public Records Request (FOIA) process.  

Cindi introduces concepts around:

  • Conveying the “what if” 
  • Anticipating objections 
  • Clearly documenting options 
  • Arguing the return on investment

We’re sure you’ll walk away with tips you can take back to your own organization based on Cindi’s many years of experience.
