The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) in Wales have submitted a consultation paper to the Welsh Government’s Commission on Public Service Governance and Delivery.
The CIPFA submission contains a five point plan for public service reform in Wales and suggests ways in which the commission could start to lay the foundations of the future financial sustainability of Welsh public services.
CIPFA intends the blueprint to be a constructive intervention at a time when managing public sector finances in Wales continues to be challenging; with the Welsh Government budget set to be cut again by 2% (£11.5bn) in 2014/15.
Chris Tidswell, Head of CIPFA Wales, commented:
”We all know that times are tough and that it is now more important than ever that we get as much value as possible from every pound of public money spent in Wales.
“Our blueprint aims to assist the commission in its work and provide insightful and constructive analysis from CIPFA on how best the Welsh Government can lay the foundations for the future success of public services in Wales.”
