The Local Code of Governance and Statement of Internal Control provide the framework for the Council to assess its performance in maintaining and improving good governance which is reported on in the Annual Report and Accounts as the Annual Governance Statement (AGS).
The Code was approved at the meeting of Council on 8th February 2018 having been revised in line with CIPFA’s publications Delivering Good Governance in Local Government and Delivering Good Governance in Local Government: Guidance Notes for Scottish Authorities.
The Code provides clear criteria against which the Council can report progress and monitor how well the Council is doing and ensures that Heads of Service are fully accountable for governance within their services via a revised statement of assurance process based on the Scottish Public Finance Manual.
