Recognising organisational excellence
The Towards Excellence Accreditation process is a great way to check that your organisation has all the right processes and procedures in place to make sure your finance department is a great place to work. We want to help create a culture where staff feel appreciated and successes are celebrated.
The One NHS Finance National Accreditation board have agreed that accreditation with CIPFA will no longer be compulsory under criterion 1.3.5, which covers the requirement for professional body accreditation. This was decided following the introduction of a fee by CIPFA to apply for their professional accreditation. Organisations wishing to secure CIPFA accreditation are still encouraged to do so.
The submission deadlines are 31 December, 30 April and 31 August each year. Please ensure you are using the 2022 version of the proforma and once completed, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
