Corporate Governance Standard for the Civil Service
This Standard was developed for the governance of Government Departments. The Standard is set out in two parts:
- Part 1 sets out a summary of good governance principles.
- Part 2 sets out an adaptable Governance Framework including provisions to be used in documenting each Department’s own arrangements.
Government Departments are required to consider this Standard in its entirety to ensure a common approach on certain core governance issues must exist across Departments. Exceptionally, Departments may choose to put in place alternative governance measures with similar effect. In such an instance, a Department should aim to illustrate how its governance measures are consistent with the principles in this Standard and contribute to good governance. These measures should be published.
