The work of the CONNEX Support Unit is guided and steered through a lean and efficient governance structure:
- The Governing Board is the main decision making body. It consists of all stakeholders which provide funding to the CONNEX Support Unit. The Governing Board has the principle steering responsibility and appoints the members of the Advisory Committee.
- The Advisory Committee is the key advisory body. The members – individuals with extended experience and outstanding expertise in the relevant sectors – provide high quality advice to the Secretariat and the Governing Board. They further help to promote the CONNEX Support Unit.
- The Secretariat is the operational body. Headed by a team of two, it is responsible for the provision of CONNEX Support in large-scale contract negotiations and the management and supervision of experts.
Further details and information on the different bodies and their functions are displayed in the Governance Structure chart below.
