The Government’s Governance Code on Public Appointments

The Government’s Governance Code on Public Appointments
January 12 2017

The Government’s Governance Code came into effect on 1 January 2017 and sets out the regulatory framework for public appointments processes within the Commissioner’s remit. Unlike the previous Codes of Practice which were drawn up and published by the Commissioner for Public Appointments, the Governance Code was drawn up and published by HM Government.

Competitions that have commenced prior to 1 January 2017 will continue to be regulated under the 2012 Code until their conclusion.

Please read the full report here. The PCF are looking forward to discussing the new code with Peter Riddell, Commissioner for Public Appointments and Chris Skidmore MP, Minister for the Constitution at our next event on 1st February 2017.
