2.3.1 MANAGEMENT INTERACTION
Management provides the OAIS with its charter and scope. The charter may be developed by the Archive, but it is important that Management formally endorse Archive activities. The scope determines the breadth of both the Producer and Consumer groups served by the Archive.
Some examples of typical interactions between the OAIS and Management include:
– Management is often the primary source of funding for an OAIS and may provide guidelines for resource utilization (personnel, equipment, facilities).
– Management will generally conduct some regular review process to evaluate the OAIS performance and progress toward Long Term goals, and assess the risks to which the OAIS and its holdings are exposed.
– Management determines, or at least endorses, pricing policies, as applicable, for OAIS services.
– Management participates in conflict resolution involving Producers, Consumers and OAIS internal administration.
Effective Management should also provide support for the OAIS by establishing procedures that assure OAIS utilization within its sphere of influence. For example, management policies should require that all funded activities within its sphere of influence submit data products to the Archive and also adhere to Archive standards and procedures.
