Public sector governance
Good governance encompasses the processes by which public entities are directed, controlled and held to account. It enables public entities to perform efficiently and effectively and to respond strategically to changing demands.
Governance strengthens ministerial, government and community confidence in a public entity. It also has direct benefits for public entities themselves.
The VPSC’s role is to:
- provide advice and support on issues relevant to governance
- conduct research and disseminate best practice in governance
- provide assistance to departments to support entities.
Good governance supported with a solid structure is integral to the performance of public entities.
