CIPFA plays a vital role in the development of policy and technical guidance in public financial management, governance, financial reporting and audit for public sector finance managers.
We publish approximately 30 titles a year, covering vital public finance knowledge and skill-improving support. They cover a wide range of subjects, including our local government codes of practice and sector-specific guidance for higher education, housing and central government.
Policy and guidance development
We regularly engage with public services, participate in financial reporting standard setting, influences policy and guidance, respond to consultations, and work with other accountancy and professionally related bodies.
