RDA Governance Review: A Discussion Document

At their 2014 meeting the Committee of Principals (CoP) created a new vision and agreed four Strategic Priorities that will form the basis of their Strategic Plan 2015-2020.

To ensure that the vision is realised and strategic priorities are delivered, the CoP has decided to review the existing governance structures to assess if they are fit for purpose and what changes may be needed to facilitate development, visibility and market penetration.

The CoP have released a discussion document which outlines the current governance structure, principles for any new governance structure, areas for development, and the key questions for consultation.

Read the discussion document.

CoP welcomes feedback from all stakeholders. Details of how to respond to the consultation are included within the discussion document.

The consultation will run until 31st December 2014.
