2016/17 Local Authority Budget Profiles released

2016/17 Local Authority Budget Profiles released

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 Budget Estimates (RA). In order to help you get the most out of this important data release, CIPFA developed a set of Local Authority Budget Comparative Profiles, which were launched for the first time in 2014. 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 2016/17 business planning process. The Local Authority Budget Comparative Profiles are part of a suite of three profiles which also includes the Local Authority Expenditure Comparative Profiles and the Accuracy of Financial Forecasting Comparative Profiles. 

The full suite can be purchased for the special discounted price of £950 plus VAT (Counties and Unitaries) or £650 plus VAT (Districts).

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