As part of our governance arrangements, we have established a forum to enable our key stakeholders to engage with us and our board.
These stakeholders include higher education institutions and further education colleges, our representative members, our funders as well as professional associations, mission groups and representative bodies.
The forum is one of the key mechanisms through which we interact with our stakeholders, both reporting to them on service provision, significant initiatives and innovation, and listening to their current imperatives and future needs.
The role of the forum, as defined in our articles, is to:
- Advise our board on future developments and priorities for Jisc's community
- Comment to the board on Jisc's strategic plan and performance, taking into account annual performance indicators
- Advise the board on strategic and operational issues
- Comment on our annual report and accounts
- Interact directly and raise points with the chair and chief executive.
The forum meets annually.
Further information can be obtained from Ann Lloyd, Jisc’s governance manager.
