Corporate governance

Code of Corporate Governance

In 2016, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) published a revised Governance Framework document and associated guidance, incorporating a number of new and revised areas specific to the way public services are now provided and structured.

In response to this, the Authority updated its Code of Corporate Governance, and the new code was approved by the Authority’s General Purposes Committee in April 2016.

The authority’s Code of Corporate Governance sets out our core principles of good governance, adhering to sound and inclusive decision making and clear accountability for the use of those resources in achieving the Authority’s desired outcomes. It also sets out our adherence to ethical behaviour, transparency and openness, and developing capacity, skills and leadership.

The most recent Governance Assurance Statement is detailed below. This was approved at the 27 June 2019 Authority meeting (Item Number: B6).
