In the new IRIS management structure adopted by the board of Directors in June 2010, the primary IRIS activities are grouped under Instrumentation Services, Data Services, and Education and Public Outreach. The underlying program structure (GSN, PASSCAL, E&O, and USArray) remains, and the governance structure (purple elements in this diagram) is preserved with the Program Standing Committees continuing to report directly to the Board of Directors. The business services are divided into Financial Services (responsible for financial controls, accounting and purchasing) and Sponsored Projects (responsible for award management, reporting, and procurement). The new and evolving program in International Development Seismology is contained within Community Activities along with other Consortium services such as meeting and publications. In addition to providing mechanisms to encourage increased coordination between programs, this structure facilitates the evolution toward integrated management of the core programs and USArray, anticipated to be under a single Cooperative Agreement starting in 2013.</p>
