The Good Governance Standard for Public Services

The Independent Commission on Good Governance in Public Services was established by the Offi ce for Public  Management (OPM) and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), in partnership with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The role of the Commission was to develop a common code and set of principles for good governance across public services.

The Commission began work early in 2004. The fi rst stage was to consult a wide range of stakeholders, through face-to-face discussions and meetings around the UK and a process of inviting written contributions from all types of public service organisations. This consultation focused on the potential value of a common code or set of principles for governing all public services, and sought views on what the code should include.

Following this consultation, the Commission produced a draft of the Good Governance Standard for Public Services. The draft was the subject of a second round of consultation in the autumn of 2004. This included meetings with service users and citizens, to explore the potential value of the Standard from their point of view. The Standard was then amended to refl ect the views expressed in the consultation.
