Chaired by Martin Gilbert, our Board is responsible for the overall strategic direction and long-term success of the Oil & Gas Technology Centre. It is responsible for making sure we have the resources, controls, and governance we need to deliver our goals.
Our Board meets regularly to review our strategies and policies and receives reports from our leadership team. It delegates to our Chief Executive Officer, who in turn delegates responsibility for specific activities to members of the leadership team.
Our Audit Committee
Chaired by Mike Fleming, our Audit Committee advises our Board on the effectiveness of our management procedures. It receives reports on risk, control and governance of the Centre, offers advice to the Board and monitors the resulting actions.
The Audit Committee oversees the development and implementation of key policies on behalf of the Board. For example, a robust Conflict of Interest Policy was implemented in 2017. It is designed to make sure that decisions taken by the Centre are impartial, fair and balanced.
We regularly report our performance against a range of key indicators to the Aberdeen City Region Deal Joint Committee, which comprises Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils and Opportunity North East.
