The Board approved its first self-evaluation survey following a recommendation from the OIOS 2007 Audit on Governance and the Audit Committee suggestion from 2009. Thereafter, the survey was conducted every two years. The survey covers the role of the Board and its membership, practices and procedures as well as its collaboration and style.
The survey has been revised to reflect the recommendations of Mosaic that it should incorporate assessment of Board culture, and be based on the Terms of Reference for Board members, as well as taking into account the Board value and the Code of Conduct. . The Board agreed that the Board complete the survey every year after the July session, so that the results and any follow-up action could be discussed at the next session.
