CIPFA members not involved in other aspects of the institutes governance will also sit on the committees, which were previously comprised of mainly CIPFA council members.
Vernon Sore, CIPFA’s policy and technical director, said: ‘CIPFA’s professional disciplinary scheme was the subject of extensive revision last year.
‘This is a significant step for CIPFA and demonstrates our commitment to a rigorous and transparent way of working.’
