First Nations Financial Management Board
Publisher acronym:
Year of publication: 

There are certain key tasks that need to get done in every First Nation. These involve managing the overall day-to-day operations of the First Nation that include specific tasks around finances and reporting.

The FAL requires that these be assigned to specific individuals to make sure that they get done.

Therefore Council must create a policy outlining the duties and roles of the First Nation’s officers which include the senior manager, the senior financial officer and the tax administrator (if the First Nation is collecting local revenues).

The FAL allows for the tasks of the senior manager to be done by more than one person, as long as each person reports directly to Council.
