Government Services for Public Sector Bodies

There is an increased demand for transparent good governance practices in the Public Sector which encourage increased accountability, better stewardship of limited resources and improved management and service delivery.  This environment places a high premium on governance standards practiced at every state body. It calls for robust governance structures and processes facilitating clear direction, efficient activities and expected outcomes.  Governance Ireland can empower boards of public bodies to achieve these results by helping build effective board structures and processes and by integrating good governance into the operational practices and strategic policies of their organisation so that good governace becomes integral to the organisations culture.

Governance Ireland can offer a range of services, tailored to the needs of the Boards of Public Sector Bodies, which would significantly enhance capacity to ensure appropriate levels of governance and accountability within organisations and in relationships within the sector.

We offer our clients a bespoke service, jointly designed and specifically addressing their individual needs.  The following is an illustrative listing of services which are in popular demand among our Public Sector Clients:-

  • Diagnostic Consultation with Chair and CEO. On our reading of primary documentation and discussion with organisation leadership, we will provide an initial diagnosis of needs and how they might best be addressed.
  • On-line Self-Assessment Survey. This is a user-friendly on-line questionnaire which can be administered to the Board to establish degree of understanding as well as absolute level of compliance with Governance Code provisions. The resulting Compliance Report is presented to the Board in an inter-active session designed to stimulate Board discussion and follow-up action.
