Corporation Structure and Committees

The Corporation is ultimately responsible for all decisions made regarding its duties as set out in the Instrument and Articles of Government. It does however have the power to delegate some of its duties to committees. These committees then make recommendations to the Board within their terms of reference.  The terms of reference of committees are reviewed periodically by committees and the Board.

The Corporation has established five main committees:

  • Audit Committee
  • Resources Committee
  • Quality, Standards and Achievements Committee
  • Search and Governance Committee
  • Remuneration Committee

The current terms of reference are available within the Corporation’s Standing Orders but in summary the remits of the committees and Chairs for 2017-18 are;
