Above the parapet

Above the Parapet: Where Finance needs to position itself in the public sector continues PwC’s research into the role of Finance in the public sector, examining the trends, issues and the changing environment faced by finance directors.

This report, the 4th in an annual series, identifies how the finance function manages itself in the public sector, how this differs from private sector comparisons and how, over the last four years, finance directors have demonstrated a real desire to improve the performance and capability of their functions. Now, in 2012, the time has come for Finance to firmly put its head above the parapet and make sure that it really does operate as an equal business partner.
