he context for this year’s conference could be summed up in one word – uncertainty. We don’t have certainty on long-term funding, we don’t have certainty on the outcome of Brexit (at the time of writing) and we don’t have the certainty of political decision-making at our assembly and executive.

As public finance professionals know, uncertainty can be an opportunity to set a new path. That path must lead to better outcomes for our citizens and that must be brought about with fewer resources and a greater need to collaborate and find innovative solutions to service delivery. We need to depart from the existing ways of doing things and focus our attention and resources on clear measures of outcome delivery across government and the wider public sector.
