The Board relies on the support of the many CSF committees to back its decisions. The committees are advisory bodies. The Board gives the committees the mandate to discuss certain topics that will facilitate decision making and render it more effective. The committees analyze the topics arising from the mandate. They give an account of their work to the Board and make recommendations if necessary. The Board must ratify a committee’s recommendation to render it operational.
