With respect to governance, Docip emphasizes a "horizontal" process. The two main governing bodies are the Docip Committee and the Foundation Board. The Docip Committee is an advisory, decision-making and operational body focused on issues related to human resources and financial and organizational matters. The Foundation Board is the highest decision-making body of Docip that deals with legal and financial matters. No action is taken without the consultation and agreement of the decision-making bodies. With regard to the in-house team, Docip advocates a horizontal governance model that is centred on the capacity for self-organization, cooperation and confidence among its employees, as well as with management and the governing bodies.
