Governance

The principles underlying the structure and representativeness of the IIOE Steering Committee (SC) were first specified in the STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK for the implementation of IIOE-2.

Sponsors

The sponsors of IIOE-2 are IOGOOS, SCOR and UNESCO-IOC. Collectively these autonomous international bodies, each involved in the science in the Indian Ocean, takes responsibility for facilitating funding of the infrastructure of IIOE-2 including resourcing of the two Joint Program Offices (JPOs) with nodes in India and Australia.

Working Procedure of the three Co-Chairs representing the three sponsors     Download

Governance framework

A duly constituted Steering Committee (SC) sets the high-level policies and take responsibility for the delivery of the project over the 2015-2020 period (see Implementation Strategy).

IIOE-2 Joint Project Office (JPO)
The JPO defines the nodal point network for IIOE-2 delivery and has day-to-day responsibility for the coordination & implementation of IIOE-2. Two major nodes of the the JPO have been established: in India (INCOIS, Hyderabad) and in Australia (IOC Perth Program Office, PPO). The JPO facilitates all aspects of IIOE-2, particularly the science and associated infrastructure as well as capacity building, operational coordination, outreach/communication, data/information management, etc.

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee (SC) consists of a Core Group and a Stakeholder Group as structured below:

Chairs/ Co Chairs of the Science Themes, Working Groups and Representatives of Regional Bodies

Core Group

The Core Group comprises, besides the three Co-Chairs, an Executive level with one representative (leader) per each of the six Science Themes and each of the seven operational divisions (Working Groups) derived from the IIOE-2 Science Plan. In addition, the Executive is composed of representatives of key Indian Ocean-related IOC Regional Bodies and Committees and Head of the two JPOs.
