Data used to drive our toolkit is sourced from the POA data collection. The POA is a management tool to enable you to make comparisons and ask the right questions. The objective analysis is robust and consistent in its approach.

Information is also included on council tax, reserves and funding trends. Detailed outlier analysis will also be available in due course to allow for identification of patterns of spend that are outside the overall distribution of normal expenditure.
The questionnaire and extensive guidance notes that accompany the annual CIPFA POA survey are fully reviewed and updated each year to reflect feedback received from practitioners across the country.
