The words “Corporate Governance” have become very commonplace in the public sector. They refer to how organisations are managed and governed. In particular there is a Department of Finance Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies which has a major influence on the governance of the state agencies. Also the Code and the “Mullarkey Report” (Report of the Working Group on the Accountability of Secretaries General and Accounting Officers) have governance implications for government departments. Following on from governance codes, there has been an increased interest in risk management and internal controls as a critical element of good governance arrangements in public service organisations. This one day course is designed as an introduction to corporate governance for public servants who are unfamiliar with the area.
