The GLA’s Corporate Management Team oversees the work of the organisation, maintaining high standards and ensuring that its structure (PDF opens in new window) is fit for purpose. Directors' decisions are recorded and open to scrutiny by the Assembly and the public.
The GLA has a corporate governance framework agreement (PDF format, 127kb) for the GLA group, published in May 2009. It covers the powers and duties of the GLA group, sets out respective roles and responsibilities and how they should relate to each other. The framework is based on the nine established principles that underpin effective and ethical corporate governance in public service:
- Honesty and integrity
- Personal judgement
- Respect for others
The GLA promotes a culture and a set of behaviours that demonstrate and support the nine core principles, enhancing openness and transparency, strengthening co-ordination across the GLA group and ensuring effective and efficient service delivery to Londoners.
Under this framework agreement the GLA has its own corporate governance systems to ensure that it achieves its overall purpose and outcomes and operates in an ethical, effective and efficient way.
To this end, the GLA has a comprehensive set of procedures in place.
The GLA's procedures for requests made under the Freedom of Information Act are described in the GLA freedom of information section.
