Governance of NBN Scotland
RECOMMENDATION 17: GOVERNANCE OF NBN SCOTLAND
The NBN National Hub for Scotland should be established as a division of NBN Trust and should be known as NBN Scotland.
A permanent National Committee for Scotland should be established as an Advisory Body that can guide priorities on creating value for all stakeholders. Such a Country Committee should evolve from and replace the current SBIF Advisory Group. Similarly, Regional Committees should also be established to advise each Regional Hub Partner, continuing existing Advisory Body arrangements where appropriate.
The NBN Trust should in due course undertake an open selection process to appoint Country Committee members as honorary, fixed term positions. Administration of each National and Regional Committee should be supported by NBN Scotland and Regional Hub Partner staff respectively.
In Scotland, the NBN Trust should then operate through its NBN Scotland division and National Committee for Scotland, with risks and issues escalated to NBN Trust when appropriate.
