The Program Standing Committees form essential links in the IRIS governance and management structures. They provide a direct voice for the community to bring issues of policy and program development to the Programs and to the Board of Directors (BoD). They provide advice to the Program Managers and IRIS President in the development of activities and budgets to be presented to the BoD for approval. Formally reporting to the BoD, these committees provide oversight of their respective Programs. They also provide recommendations on policy issues and new programmatic initiatives to the BoD. Each Standing Committee Chair is to work closely with the Program Manager to prepare semi-annual reports to the BoD and to develop agendas for Standing Committee meetings.
The OBSIP Oversight Committee advises the Board of Directors and the OMO Project Manager to assess the appropriateness of staffing levels and budgets, the adequacy and responsiveness of service and instrumentation to the community, whether instrument developments are adequate to meet future needs, the quality of the data, and whether each IIC continues to meet the IIC definition and criteria.
This OBSIP Oversight Committee is charged by the Board of Directors to:
The OBSIP Oversight Committee shall consist of seven volunteer members of the marine seismology and broader research communities. Members will serve staggered three-year terms. The OBSIP Project Manager and IIC representatives will attend Oversight Committee meetings but not be members of the Committee.
