On September 20th 2022, 40 members from Northern Ireland gathered for a successful hybrid lunchtime event. There were about a dozen people who came to the event in person in Adelaide House, Belfast (the headquarters of the Department for the Economy) whilst other members dialled into the meeting on a virtual platform.
Steve Mungavin, the CIPFA NI Branch Chair, shared his thoughts, based on his long experience of working in the public sector, on the current public finance environment in Northern Ireland. Under the title ‘Gaining efficiency savings in Northern Ireland’s public services to address financial pressures’, there was a particular focus to Steve’s talk and the ensuing discussion on how to achieve efficiency savings given the complexity, size and dependency of the public sector in NI. Those in attendance agreed that we face very real and unique challenges in NI and Steve encouraged everyone to continue the discussion in their organisations and at future CIPFA events.
