The Council has six committees. These are formally constituted with written terms of reference and specified membership, including a significant proportion of external members. All are chaired by external members of the Council. The decisions of these committees are formally reported to the Council.
The Finance Committee considers two College's long term financial plans and its financial operations, as well as considering risks related to liquidity, debt, resource allocation, and financial contingencies.
Audit and Risk Committee
The Audit and Risk Committee considers the internal and external auditors' reports together with recommendations for the improvement of the College's systems of internal control and management's responses and implementation plans. It also considers two College's strategic risks and reviews the Risk Register twice a year. It receives and considers reports from the Funding Council as they affect the College's business and monitors adherence to regulatory requirements.
The Nominations Committee considers nominations for membership of the Court, Council and Council's Committees.
The Remuneration Committee determines the remuneration of senior staff in the College including the Rector.
The Endowment Board manages those College assets that are not essential to the core academic mission of the College and that can therefore be managed with a pure investment focus.
Imperial White City Syndicate
The Imperial White City Syndicate advises the Council on the strategic development of the Imperial West site, reviews all aspects of the planned development of Imperial West, and oversees major spending decisions via the stage gate process.
