It’s important that we continue to improve our governance processes whenever we can.

We’ve begun publishing Chief Officer forms for the first time, and we’ve asked all decision authors to consider conflicts of interest more formally. We’ve overhauled the approach to budget setting and now publish a significantly more comprehensive and transparent GLA: Mayor budget document.

We’ve continually been looking for ways to improve our engagement with Londoners, so we can make better decisions. Talk London now has a membership of nearly 60,000 Londoners from all walks of life, and we’ve used this amazing resource to help shape the work of the London Recovery Board.

This approach – listening to and working with Londoners – has shaped my decisions as Mayor.
