The Board has overall responsibility for ensuring that an effective system of internal control is maintained and operated. The Executive has day-to-day responsibility for implementing the system of internal control. This system of internal control is operated based on detailed administrative procedures, segregation of duties, specific authorisation thresholds and regular review by management of reports outlining actual and budgeted results of the various programmes.

Corporate Governance comprises the systems and procedures by which ETBs are directed and controlled. Accordingly, MSLETB is subject to sectoral Codes of Practice for Governance of Education, Training Boards and Circulars as published by the Department of Education & Skills and are implemented by MSLETB as required.
