Corporate governance

Corporate governance is defined as the systems, principles and processes by which organisations are directed and controlled. Good governance enables efficient and effective management that translates into value and excellent customer service for our stakeholders.

At the Standards Commission, we are given secretariat support by the Office of the Ombudsman. The Commission is co-located with the Office of the Ombudsman, the Office of the Information Commissioner, the Office of the Environmental Information Commissioner, and the Commission for Public Service Appointments. These offices carry out separate and distinct statutory functions, but share services such as human resources, finance, and information and communications technology.

We are committed to best practice structures, processes and systems to successfully carry out our duties in an ethical, accountable, transparent and effective manner.

We firmly believe that good corporate governance is essential to deliver our strategic priorities. By documenting our governance arrangements, our stakeholders can be assured that good governance policies and practices are part of our culture.
