I help public sector managers to get better value for money for their organisations through my work as a freelance consultant, a trainer/lecturer and a writer.

Technical advice was explained simply and effectively.
Lincolnshire Police
I can assist organisations with any aspect of financial management but I have developed a specialism in procurement and outsourcing, especially the procurement of strategic partnerships.

Before becoming a freelance consultant in 2005 I had a career in local government and the private sector, reaching the level of finance director. I also obtained an MPA from Warwick Business School. Therefore I have a proven ability to lead and manage change and improve performance in complex, dynamic environments and I combine in-depth knowledge and experience of public financial management with commercial acumen and academic theory.

[Gary] set a standard which some other contributors are going to find hard to live up to.

I am a successful lecturer on public financial management, being an Associate Fellow of Warwick Business School where I led modules on the Masters in Public Administration and Postgraduate Diploma in Local Government Management.

I have also taught at Cardiff Business School and in autumn 2012 I shall be teaching the finance module on the MPA at the University of Nottingham.

Gary Bandy has written the book on Public Financial Management which we've all been secretly hoping for, but were too embarrassed to admit we needed.
Professor John Benington, Warwick Business School
I am the author of Financial Management and Accounting in the Public Sector which was first published by Routledge in 2011. The second edition will be published in November 2014 I also write a blog called Public Value for Money which can be found here.

Aside from writing a textbook and a blog I have had articles published by the Local Government Chronicle and the Guardian and I have written a full-length novel for which I am actively seeking a publisher.
