Data Analytics

Exclusive to AFEP II members, sector-specific analysis is hosted on our new cloud-based data management platform which will give users immediate and secure access, and the opportunity to visualise, explore and interpret the wide range of information we hold.

Data helps forces and PCCs better understand their place and make decisions that improve societal outcomes for their diverse communities. Insights can also support financial resilience by providing granular detail in terms of support services costs, helping forces deliver and demonstrate value for money.

AFEP II new dashboards

AFEP II will continue to provide dedicated police sector stats and benchmarking analysis, driving better financial management and decision making across forces. It will help improve current comparative data and develop broader analytical and diagnostic capacity to help the forces deliver and demonstrate value for money. The new AFEP dashboards will be refreshed during AFEP II and new data dashboards are planned throughout the programme lifecycle – subject matter to be informed by the data sub-group.


This online information resource for public sector financial managers provides guidance on the financial and service functions of public sector bodies. TISonline content is produced by expert contributors from all parts of the public sector on a 'by practitioners, for practitioners' basis.


The blue light subscription allows members to access police objective analysis, police estimates, and police actuals, in addition to the data sets within the general finance area. These are accessed in the same way you access the AFEP II data dashboards as the information is housed within the same platform.


Your AFEP II subscription now includes full access to CIPFA Publications. The latest standard-setting accounting guidance will keep members up to date. Access to the extensive back catalogue is also available.
