local government directors of finance section

The CIPFA Local Government Directors of Finance (Scotland) group develops policy and publications for CIPFA members in Scotland.

Membership is open to the 32 directors of finance (or equivalent) of the Scottish local authorities who have the 'proper officer' responsibility conveyed by Section 95 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973.

Representatives of CIPFA Scotland Office and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) are also invited to attend. The section is closely involved with COSLA and is a source of financial advice and support.

The section meets approximately six times a year.

The current chair of the section is Alexander McPhee, Executive Director of Finance and Corporate Support, East Ayrshire Council. Contact Alex with regard to the section's activities by email - E: alex.mcphee@east-ayrshire.gov.uk.
