AbstractThe internship experience with the Department of Community Development and its Urban Programs Division provided an opportunity to participate in the preparation and revision of operating budgets, in the organizing and revision of fiscal management systems and in the review and preparation of a federally assisted program. The functioning of intergovernmental relations was observed both between the city and the national government and between the city and the state government. Also, the role of individual personalities was observed in such relations. A part of the first two weeks of the internship was spent in private meetings with various department directors and division administrators. In these meetings, particular attention was paid to the techniques the directors and administrators use in the budgetary process. When the internship was over, the practical experience which it provided was compared to the academic experience.
