Consultation on Proposed Changes to the Treasury Management Code


Please note that this consultation has now closed

In the spring of this year CIPFA sought views on how the

Treasury Management in the Public Services: Code of Practice and Cross-Sectoral Guidance Notes (Treasury Management Code) (2011) should be updated to reflect the changing environment in which it is applied. 

While this Code covers all public services, it is primarily designed for the use of local authorities (including police and fire authorities), providers of social housing, higher and further education institutions and the National Health Service. There are significant treasury management portfolios within the public services; for example, as at 31 March 2016 UK local authorities had outstanding borrowing of £88bn and investments of £32bn.
Having carefully considered the responses received, CIPFA has now issued the Consultation on Proposed Changes to the Treasury Management Code and Cross Sectoral Guidance Notes (PDF 573 KB). The accompanying Pro-forma Response Sheet (Word 56 KB) should be downloaded to submit your response. These should be returned to Matthew Allen E:
The closing date for responses is 30 September 2017.

It is intended to publish the revised code towards the end of the year for 2018/19 implementation. 

Webchat is available Monday to Friday, 09:00 - 17:00 (excluding UK bank holidays).
