My name is LCDR Ben Wroblewski. I am an accounting instructor at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT, an active duty USCG finance officer, and a Doctorate of Business Candidate at the University of South Florida's Muma College of Business. I have served in the USCG for 19 years, with eight years as a finance officer, and I'm a member of ASMC with the Yankee Chapter.
I am researching budget decision-making for my doctorate dissertation and would value your input from your budgeting or accounting experience.
The theme of my research is what influences affect government budget managers when budget planning.
This vignette is designed to immerse you in a common scenario in budget preparation and ask for a decision based on the scenario.
It will take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete this scenario and follow on questions.
