This benchmarking club covers accountancy, which forms the core of every finance function and covers a wide range of areas. For this reason, it is possibly the hardest service to measure and benchmark.
We collect staffing (central & local) and cost data for the following defined activities:
The total cost of the accountancy function and staff full time equivalents are allocated across the services being supported using the standard Service Reporting Code of Practice (SeRCOP) service analysis.
We then compare the accountancy cost per £1,000 gross revenue turnover for the authority and by service. We also compare the accountancy staff fte per £million gross revenue turnover for the authority and by service.
