There are a number of projects you could choose (i.e. the building of Hollyrood, HS2, London Olympics etc), use your imagination. You must provide an appropriate background of the concepts of Budgets and Financial Control, using literature in the proper manner. You should provide a brief description of the situation you will be using for your critical appraisal. These are both necessary conditions but are not sufficient. You must the link the concepts to the situation you are appraising and use the concepts to provide the appraisal. You may choose to handle this assessment in a variety of ways. For example, you might take an overview of Budgets and Financial Control and/or choose to focus on one detailed topic of Budgets and Financial Control and use this as your basis.
