UKPGA responds to Charity Commission consultation on Key Principles of Good Governance November 16, 2009Posted by ukpga in Consultation responses.
Caroline Oliver, Chair of the UK Policy Governance Association, has responded to a Charity Commission consultation on the refashioned principles of good governance. The principles were originally set out in Good Governance: a Code for the Voluntary and Community Sector published in 2005, which is supported by the Charity Commission.
In the web-based consultation questionnaire, Caroline stressed that the principles need to allow for concept of moral ownership and for boards to set criteria for strategic plans and budgets rather than doing the planning and budgeting.
Caroline further stated that UKPGA would be pleased to talk with the Governance Code Steering Group, responsible for refashioning the principles. Watch this space.
