Seminar for “Town Council Code of Governance 2020” (please click here for more info)

Seminar Overview


From April next year, town councils will have to abide by a new code of governance which aims to promote greater transparency and raise standards of management. The code was launched on Wednesday (Jun 19), said the Ministry of National Development (MND), adding that it will take effect from FY2020 (Apr 1, 2020) to give town councils time to implement it. Town councils must declare their compliance with the code and submit a checklist to MND annually. “The code provisions set out best practices which TCs (town councils) are encouraged to adopt, through a comply-or-explain regime,” said the ministry. The guidelines cover four main areas – council effectiveness, internal controls and processes, financial management, as well as vendor management.
