Our Governance and Team
Multi-stakeholder governance is at the core of the SRP system
The General Assembly functions as the SRP’s highest decision-making body, and meets annually to perform statutory functions and provide policy guidance.
Reporting to the General Assembly, the SRP Board advises on the strategy and action plans to ensure that the SRP achieves its objectives.
The SRP Secretariat is responsible for the overall management and coordination of SRP’s programmes, partnerships, communications and resource mobilization initiatives to advance the Strategic Plan and Annual Action Plans.
Two operational committees (Technical and Monitoring & Evaluation) allow members to help shape our goals, tools and activities.
SRP Organizational Structure
SRP seeks to ensure all stakeholders have an equal and transparent opportunity to influence decisions and outcomes on SRP’s policies and operations, and on the design and management of our normative tools.
The foundation for the SRP governance system is its members. The primary authority of members is exercised through the General Assembly, which functions as the SRP’s highest decision-making body and meets annually to perform statutory functions and provide policy guidance. Voting rights and process are defined in the Articles of Association.
Between Annual General Assemblies, four functional entities carry out the operations of the organisation: the SRP Board, the SRP Secretariat, the Technical Committee, and the Monitoring and Evaluation Committee.
The SRP Board is elected by the General Assembly and oversees management of the global organisation on behalf of all members. It has a statutory responsibility for ‘general management and control’ of the organization. The Board is skills-based and comprises elected members representing key stakeholder constituencies. The Board is supported by two Board Committees.
The Board Committee on Governance and Risk (view Terms of Reference) is responsible for: periodic review of statutory and guiding documents notably the Articles of Association and Bylaws; review of legal status and agreements to meet governance requirements; assessing and tracking risk and governance-related issues with respect to SRP’s strategy; review of management, including risk management, structures, including day to day management structures; and advising on and reviewing national implementation structures.
The Board Committee on Finance and Business Development (view Terms of Reference) oversees and provides strategic input and guidance to the Secretariat and Board to support SRP’s finances, operations and business development. Additionally, the FBDC provides the Secretariat with guidance to facilitate operationalization and review of the SRP 5-Year Strategic Plan 2020-2024 and Annual Action Plans, as well as ad hoc guidance on resource mobilization. Finally, FBDC is responsible for ensuring alignment on governance matters with the Governance and Risk Committee.
