Accountancy Age Awards: In the public eye

Constitutional reform in Scotland, the creation of the new Greater London Authority and conflict over the ever expanding crop of public private partnerships, have provided opportunities for a spotlight to shine on the world of public sector audit and accountancy.

And if the spotlight has fallen on bodies and issues, it must also illuminate key individuals who have been in the thick of things initiating policy and far reaching changes which have gone some way to transform local government and public accountability.

At Accountancy Age we want to reward individuals working in the public sector for their commitment and pursuit of excellence with our Public Services Achievement of the Year Award.

The awards is one of 12 categories inviting entries in this year?s Accountancy Age Awards for Excellence. And the closing date has been extended to 11 August 2000 so there is still time to get your entry in.

Open to all accountants working in public services accounting including government departments, local authorities, executive agencies, NHS trusts, charities and housing associations.

The awards ceremony is being held on 1 November 2000 at London’s stunning Natural History Museum and will once again be attended by VIPs from all areas of the world of accountancy.
