In accordance with its Constitution, the Consortium is managed by the Board comprising one representative, with the necessary experience, qualifications and seniority (usually a Finance Director or equivalent), from each member institution, who is delegated to vote on its behalf. Procurement Managers attend the meetings, in a non-voting capacity; respectively the Consortium Procurement Manager who services the Board and the Chair of the Strategy Management Group.
Honorary officers, comprising a Chair and Deputy Chair, are appointed for rolling 3-year periods.
The Board meets at least twice each year, respectively for an AGM at which the Annual Report is presented, and an interim meeting for budget review and membership fee setting, amongst other business. The next meeting will be held in March 2013.
The Board works closely with the, second tier, Strategy Management Group between whom consortium business flows, variously as informative papers with recommendations where appropriate, strategic and tactical matters, and policy decisions.
