Salford City Council's Code of Corporate Governance is a framework covering the systems and processes, and cultures and values, by which the council operates and through which we account to, engage with, and lead in our communities.
This framework brings together and conforms by an underlying set of legislative requirements, good governance principles and sound management processes. It is based on guidance published in April 2016 by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives and Senior Managers (SOLACE) around 'Delivering Good Governance in Local Government'.
The CIPFA/SOLACE framework sets out seven core principles for good governance. Each core principle has a number of underlying 'sub principles'. For each sub principle, we have explained the relevant governance arrangements Salford has in place and where examples and evidence of the operation of these arrangements can be found.
