The Director's Executive Group (DEG ) is the most senior management forum for discussion and decision on management and policy issues affecting the operations of the Institute. Members have a responsibility to be up-to-date on external policy, and on collaborative and competitive issues that have an impact on the Institute's long range planning.
The Director's Executive Group's key responsibilities relate to the provision of advice and support to the Director, co-ordinating management input to the strategic planning process, and the approval of annual budgets for presentation to the Board. The Director's Executive Group is supported by two policy and strategy focused committees, the Science Council and the Management Committee.
