The Local Code of Corporate Governance is based upon six core principles:

1. Focussing on the Integrated Transport Authority’s purpose and on outcomes for its citizens and service users

2. Members and officers working together to achieve a common purpose with clearly defined functions and roles

3. Promoting high standards of conduct and behaviour across the Integrated Transport Authority

4. Making transparent decisions which are subject to scrutiny and risk management

5. Developing the capacity of members and officers to be effective

6. Engaging with local people and stakeholders
