Corporate Governance Framework

Our corporate governance framework sets out the necessary responsibilities and procedures that guarantee we operate properly.

Accountability and efficiency

25, You have a duty to ensure that funds are properly safeguarded and that, at all times, the Commission conducts its business as economically, efficiently and effectively as possible. To be clear, this applies equally to licence fee funded activities and to any activities funded by other means.

26. So far as reasonably possible, you are responsible for ensuring the Commission does not exceed its powers and functions, whether set out in statute or otherwise, to incur expenditure which should not be incurred.

27. You should ensure that a full statement of resources and their use is included in the Annual Report and Accounts. The Chief Executive as Accounting Officer will advise you on these matters.

28. You must comply with rules about allowances and expenses. Where income tax is deducted directly from your remuneration as part of the payroll process, it is your responsibility to ensure that the correct tax treatment is applied and that you comply with HM Revenue and Customs (opens in new tab) requirements.
