The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is holding an online public conference on December 15, 2010 that will tackle current issues touching the public sector finance.

The one-day ACCA event will give the public different insights into the various ways with which professionals in finance can adapt to the challenges in their field through presentations from the key players in the public sector.

They include Civil Service former head Lord Butler of Brockwell, Food Standards Agency chairman Lord Rooker, Committee on Standards in Public Life member David Prince, Centre for Public Scrutiny executive director Jessica Crowe, ACCA head of public sector Gillian Fawcett, and Baker Tilly charity and education advisory services head Jim Clifford.

The ACCA conference seeks to equip accountants with the ability to handle situations amid a rigid financial environment, as well as to get across to them the reforms in the regulations and standards of accounting.

Recently, the UK Spending Review raised the issue of public sector finance with emphasis on how professionals in the finance sector contribute to public services by optimizing efficiency and effectiveness in how they discharge their roles.

ACCA, which supports the careers of its 140,000 members and 404,000 students, is an accountancy body that provides services to a network of 83 offices and active centers.

Debates tackling ACCA’s agenda can be viewed by the public by registering at its website.
