Course Description

Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies 2016

The updated revised Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies has applied from 1 September 2016. This is the key guidance document on the corporate governance expectations of State Bodies and other organisations operating to state body and public sector norms. The Code updates and expands on the previous code with additional guidance on several areas including:

  • Oversight arrangements with parent Departments;
  • Performance Delivery Agreements;
  • Alignment of Statements of Strategy;
  • Business and Reporting obligations;
  • Audit and Risk Committees;
  • Role and composition of boards and the role of the Chairperson;
  • Board and Committee effectiveness;
  • Accountability and compliance requirements;
  • Risk management and internal control reporting.

State Bodies were given two options in relation to adoption of the provisions of the Code.  For those organisations who chose to adopt for the 2017 year-end, this session provides State Bodies with an ideal opportunity to revisit the key provisions of the Code.
