Our Governance Framework

The governance and operating model of the Norse Group differs significantly from that of privately-owned commercial companies in order to operate a business that complies with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. The Board recognises that the manner in which the Group is governed is critical to the long-term success of the business.

The Group’s board is made up of Directors of the Norse Group and is chaired by an Executive Director of Norfolk County Council. The Board is support by three independent Non-Executive Directors who provide challenge and guidance to enhance the Group offerings.
