2016/17 Local Authority Budget Profiles now available


Do you know if and where your costs are higher than average? Do your costs reflect your council priorities or might they point to areas for potential savings?

CIPFA and DCLG have just released the 2016-17 Revenue Account (RA) budget data. In order to help you get the most out of this important data release, CIPFA have developed a set of Local Authority Budget Comparative Profiles. These popular profiles are available to order now.

The in-depth analysis contained in the profiles enables you to examine how your budgeted service costs compare to those of your peers. It provides key decision-makers within your authority with a quick, inexpensive way to engage with the 2016-17 RA data to support evidence based decision-making.

This detailed set of profiles will provide you with an invaluable analysis in plenty of time to support your 2017-18 business planning process and form part of a suite of three profiles which also includes the Local Authority Expenditure Comparative Profiles and the Accuracy of Financial Forecasting Comparative Profiles.

Access to example reports and details on how to order can be found at our website.
