The TISonline service
TISonline (Technical Information Service online) is CIPFA's online resource providing 30+ information streams of best practice, guidance, commentary and legislative context for financial managers across the public services.
Compiled and maintained by contributors drawn from all parts of the public sector on a 'by practitioners, for practitioners' basis, TISonline supports managers at all levels in their everyday activities, as well as underpinning professional development for a range of disciplines and professions.
The service was launched by CIPFA in 1967 and became an established and invaluable reference source for practitioners and all those with an interest in financial management across the public services. It has been available online since 2003.
information streams cover the full range of financial and service functions of local authorities and other public service bodies. They are supported by regular news updates, monthly e-alerts, personalised instant emails to let users know when guidance is updated, and active Discussion Forums
