Roles, Responsibilities and Relationships: Guidance Note 3: Overview

Every member of a Board of a public body must be clear about their specific roles and responsibilities if the Board and the public body are to operate successfully.

This section outlines the roles and responsibilities of the Board, its committees, individual Board members and key internal and external stakeholders, such as the Chief Executive, Scottish Ministers and the Scottish Government sponsor Directorate. It explains the importance of managing these relationships effectively, including a clear understanding of the strategic governance and decision-making responsibilities of the Board and the operational and statutory accountability responsibilities of the Chief Executive, including as the body's Accountable Officer.
