Civil Service

Good governance is central to the effective operation of Government Departments.  It is key to the  effective discharge of their statutory and policy obligations. Good governance ensures that a framework of structures, policies and processes are in place to deliver on these obligations. The Civil Service Renewal Plan aims to enhance governance arrangements and bring them into line with international best practice by the introduction of a common governance standard.  The implementation of this plan and the application of this common standard will require an objective assessment of management and corporate performance.

At Governance Ireland our team is eminently qualified to guide your Department in matching best practice governance. We have experience of top level leadership and management in Government Departments, an appreciation of the public policy and accountability environment and first hand experience in Director and Board Chair Roles in public bodies, and more braoadly.
