Review the committee's Terms of Reference

  • Restricted enclosure 11

Meeting: 14/04/2016 - Management Board (Item 7)

Terms of Reference MB and IRB

Supporting documents:

  • Restricted enclosure 14
  • Restricted enclosure 15
  • Restricted enclosure 16

Minutes:

Dave Tosh presented revised ToRs for Management Board (MB) and Investment and Resourcing Board (IRB). These were discussed with a view to ensuring they described correctly the current responsibilities and membership. The ToRs for both boards were agreed with a clarification of MBs contribution to strategic thinking.

The Board also considered the benefits of continuing the Scenarios Group, which had been established to focus on the implications of the Fifth Assembly transition. It was decided that Management Board should take on the additional responsibility in the role of Scenario planning.

It was also agreed that Management Board would endeavour to reach more definitive positions on posts during capacity planning so that decisions can later be taken by Heads without reference back to IRB, in cases that are clear.

Actions:

·                Dave Tosh to update the ToRs as above and reflect the link between internal resources and investment decisions and also clarify the levels above which matters need to go to IRB (cross-referencing to the scheme of delegation). The review of Commission papers should be added to the standing items grid;

·                Dave Tosh and Anna Daniel to agree wording in relation to programme boards; and

IRB forward plan to be included in the meeting note to MB.
