Consultation on CIPFA index of resilience for English councils


The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) is consulting on its plans to provide an authoritative measure of local authority financial resilience via a new index. 

The index, based on publically available information, will provide an assessment of the relative financial health of each English council.

CIPFA has designed the index to provide reassurance to councils who are financially stable and prompt challenge where it may be needed.

In order to understand the sector’s views, CIPFA invites all interested parties to respond to questions it has put forward in the consultation.
