Corporate Governance Framework

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


1. To conduct its business efficiently, the Gambling Commission (the Commission) needs to ensure that it has sound financial management policies in place to which the organisation strictly adheres. Part of this process is the establishment of these financial regulations that set out the high level financial policies of the Commission. It is the responsibility of the Accounting Officer (AO) to ensure the organisation has sound financial management policies.

2. The financial regulations have been prepared with reference to the relevant agreements between the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) (opens in new tab) and the Commission. It should be noted that, as a public body, the Commission currently has to operate in accordance with government and Treasury guidance on accounting and financial control procedures.

3. These financial regulations are supported by detailed financial procedures which set out the day to day operation of finance activities.
