Governance Principles & Governance Framework for the Local Government Sector

The City and County Management Association, the Association of Irish Local Government in conjunction with the Institute of Public Administration have developed this principles-based framework to provide a clear and comprehensive summary of the principal aspects and elements of corporate governance within a local authority context and to clarify governance, legal and other requirements for the benefit of councillors, senior managers, staff, key stakeholders and the wider public. The framework will also provide councillors, managers and staff with much of the basic information needed to understand their duties, roles and governance responsibilities.
