Corporate Governance Framework

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

Delegated Powers

8. The Board authorises the FPC to:

  • investigate any activity within its terms of reference. Any investigation will be initiated in consultation with the Chief Executive
  • seek any information it may require from any Commissioner or employee. All members and employees must co-operate with the Committee. (It will be normal practice to channel such requests through the Chief Executive)
  • obtain legal or other professional advice, subject to budgetary provision agreed in advance by the Accounting Officer and the Board, and to secure the attendance at committee meetings of anyone it considers has relevant experience, expertise or knowledge.
