A commission established by the LGA and CIPFA will make recommendations for the reform of local government finance.
A new LGA report says local authorities in England will be unable to manage cuts through efficiency savings over the next two years.
CIPFA has issued a technical alert providing guidance on frequency of valuations for property, plant and equipment.
The programme to cut the cost of operational PFI schemes should eventually save more than double its initial £1.5bn target.
The final local government finance settlement for England for 2014/15 was published on 5 February 2014.
