This Governance Framework aims to provide a clear overview of the principal aspects of corporate governance within the Department of Health.
The Governance Framework is drafted in accordance with the Corporate Governance Standard for the civil service. It documents the governance arrangements for the department, which are underlined by five key governance principles. The Framework may evolve over time with changes in Minister or in Government policy, but at all times it should provide a comprehensive foundation on which the department’s policies and actions develop in accordance with these principles of good governance.
The Framework also sets out the elements against which compliance with the Corporate Governance Standard will be measured.
