This is a free event.


The event will provide an opportunity to hear from the Scottish Funding Council on a number of topics ranging from the indicative budget announcement to the simplified credit funding model. This will allow you to hear first-hand and to raise questions of the SFC on some of the key matters affecting the financial world over the coming periods. There will also be an opportunity to hear from CIPFA on the work they have been undertaking in regard to Counter Fraud. Given the level of public scrutiny the sector is under this session will provide a timely reminder to continue to review policies and processes in this area. The event will finish with an open discussion on a wide range of topics (copyright to VAT) and this is your chance to raise issues and discuss “hot topics”.


This event will provide participants with the opportunity to examine/discuss:

·         Budget setting for 2017/18 and beyond

·         Credit modelling impacts

·         Counter fraud areas of vulnerability and what steps can be taken to reduce the risk

·         A variety of hot topics relevant to the sector.

We would also welcome feedback on what should be covered in these events.
