PFM Financial Advisors
CIPFA, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, is the professional body for people in public finance. Our 14,000 members work throughout the public services, in national audit agencies, in major accountancy firms, and in other bodies where public money needs to be effectively and efficiently managed.
As the world’s only professional accountancy body to specialise in public services, CIPFA’s portfolio of qualifications are the foundation for a career in public finance. They include the benchmark professional qualification for public sector accountants as well as a postgraduate diploma for people already working in leadership positions. They are taught by our in-house CIPFA Education and Training Centre as well as other places of learning around the world.
We also champion high performance in public services, translating our experience and insight into clear advice and practical services. They include information and guidance, courses and conferences, property and asset management solutions, consultancy and interim people for a range of public sector clients.
Globally, CIPFA shows the way in public finance by standing up for sound public financial management and good governance. We work with donors, partner governments, accountancy bodies and the public sector around the world to advance public finance and support better public services.
IMPOWER is an award-winning independent consultancy focused exclusively on improving public services.

Moore Insight prides itself on ‘making systems work’ for clients across central and local government. Collaboration and quality have been at our core for more than 30 years. We are highly experienced in delivering complex ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning – including Finance, HR, Payroll and Procurement) implementation and improvement projects successfully, to achieve the best outcomes for our clients.
We can help you select appropriate systems that ‘fit’ your organisations’ size and complexity, or we can work with you to configure selected systems, migrate from one system to another and provide integration and financial integrity support in the form of accounting experts, where needed to ensure the data is “right first time”.
We provide support in every step of your journey, throughout the whole system(s) lifecycle, and remain systems independent, but work closely with software vendors in collaborative teams.
Some of our current projects include ERP Implementation at London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and providing ERP technical assurance for the Department of Transport. Find out more about our recent projects here: ERP Case Studies – MOORE (moore-insight.com)

UK Municipal Bonds Agency
The UK Municipal Bonds Agency provides capital ﬁnance to UK councils. With 56 local authorities and the Local Government Association as shareholders, it is owned by local government for local government. By providing loans on a contractual basis, unlike the PWLB, the UKMBA protects councils from arbitrary changes to the terms and conditions of loans they take out. In contrast to other alternatives to the PWLB, the UKMBA oﬀers clear and transparent pricing so local authorities always know they have borrowed at the best market rates available.
As the official magazine of CIPFA, Public Finance provides insight and analysis for public finance professionals in UK and beyond.
