How we make decisions

This section covers the way in which SLC makes decisions including:

  1. the corporate decision making process;
  2. governance; and
  3. the minutes of meetings of various SLC boards.

Corporate Decision Making Process

Our purpose and priorities, what we will deliver and how we will do it, are set out in our three-year Delivery Strategy which was created in response to the Strategic Commission issued by the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (the predecessor to BIS). SLC's objectives and performance targets, and the resources it will be provided with to deliver these, are outlined in the Annual Performance and Resources Agreement for 2009-10.

Governance

As an Executive Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB), SLC's control framework is set out in the Framework Document A revised Combined Code on Corporate Governance was published in July 2006. This is supported by the document 'Internal Control: Guidance for Directors on the Combined Code' (the Turnbull guidance).
