Formats and related files
This Technical Guide is intended to help users prepare papers containing financial recommendations. The formats used are designed to meet Cabinet Office requirements for recommendations being considered by Cabinet (refer to Drafting financial recommendations steps at Financial implications in Cabinet papers (CabGuide) on the DPMC website) and by Ministers, to ensure that information presented to them follows a consistent style and format.
Agencies may prefer to download and use the Word version of the Technical Guide, as this will enable copy and paste of text and/or tables from relevant worked examples where helpful in the construction of their financial recommendations.
The Technical Guide was updated in November 2021. For details about changes since the previous version (September 2018) see What's New? on page 4.
