The launch of a Public Sector Pioneer Network for Integrated Reporting <IR> was announced yesterday at the World Bank Public Sector Integrated Reporting Conference in Washington.

This initiative, which has been developed by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), will see several public sector bodies begin to explore the adoption of <IR>.

Organizations already signed up include the World Bank Group, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the City of London Corporation, the Welsh Government and UK government departments. In attendance at the conference were representatives from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the UK National Health Service (NHS), and the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB).

The press release and a page dedicated to the new Network can be found on the IIRC website.  More detail about the development of this Network can be found in our previous UK Accounting plus news item.
