International advances and the long-term future of the public services will
be the focus of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy over
the next five years.
This follows CIPFA launching its development strategy for 2006 to 2010, which
has now been distributed to all of its members.
The program of projects and initiatives highlight four main themes which are:
· Educating, training and continuously developing outstanding members;
· Setting high standards and delivering best practice in the public interest;
· Meeting customer needs and expectations; and
· Developing people and making best use of resources.
CIPFA president Diane Colley said the new development strategy would help the
institute engage ‘as effectively as possible with members and students; invest
even more energy and resources into their development; and capture and share
more of their knowledge and expertise’
