    AICPA-CIMA is the largest professional membership body in the world – and the leading institution specialising in management accountancy and putting the finance function at the heart of governance, management-decision making and value creation.

    Through rigorous research across thousands of companies, GMAPs have been developed as a set of statements that outline the fundamental values, qualities, norms and features that are desirable for management accounting and that should define its practices and processes.

    Registered by British Standards Institute as a public standard under PAS1919, GMAPs are acknowledged best practice statements used by organisations to prepare and present information for decision making.
