The committee normally meets weekly during term at 10.00 am on Monday and less frequently during the vacation. The committee coordinates the actions of departmental officers acting under delegated authority. It does not keep formal records of its meetings, all actions being taken by officers on their own authority, subject to policy set by the Department, and reported by them to the Department Committee and to other committees as appropriate. Decisions are reported to the next Department Committee for endorsement.
