We have recently published a suite of new guidance for the public sector on establishing portfolio governance arrangements.

This guidance provides advice and support to departments and public entities on working together, including about how to evaluate the relationship and formalise lines of communication and engagement.

It was created in response to requests from the public sector for advice and guidance on how to build positive working relationships between departments and public entities.

The resource suite includes a guide, scenarios and ‘do/do not’ lists, covering important topics such as:

  • how to build productive working relationships
  • the importance of keeping ministers informed
  • monitoring performance and compliance.
