Stand-Still Scenario

The IFAC “Stand-Still” Scenario is an illustrative exercise that provides estimates of the cost of maintaining today’s level of public services and benefits in real terms over the medium term.

The Council considers that estimates produced in this scenario could form an important input into the expenditure planning process; one which can enrich the evidence base for budgetary decisions.
