Helping our members reach new heights
CIPFA members are increasingly working across public and private sectors, in a financial environment that requires multiple skills and agility.
Making it count
CIPFA is committed to changing lives for the better. As a global leader in public financial management and governance our aim is to make a difference to the world, we live in. Our work enables people to prosper, protects the vulnerable and helps sustain the environment for future generations.
As a professional institute, we support our members and students to act with integrity and deliver excellence in public financial management throughout their careers.
By setting standards and advising public bodies and governments we help ensure the money and resources used on behalf of citizens are raised and spent fairly, transparently, efficiently and are free from fraud and corruption.
Our thought leadership puts us at the heart of the policy debate, while our education and training offerings and range of advisory services support our members, students, and other public finance professionals, helping them add value to their teams and the organisations for which they work.
CIPFA is a global body, operating at local, national, and international level. Wherever we find ourselves and whoever we are supporting, our goal is to always make it count.
