overall leadership of the Institute, a Board of Directors and a Scientific
NICDS Board of Directors is comprised of the Scientific Director,
representation from Canada's mathematical sciences institutes and
the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC).

The Board meets three times a year. Its duties include the approval
of expenditures, the annual budget and all SAC recommendations. It
oversees various institute activities including the vetting of proposals,
management of projects and resolution of conflicts of interest. The
Board also acts in an advisory capacity concerning the institute's
activities, funding opportunities, renewal of the institute's resources
and further partnering opportunities. It also identifies subject areas
that are of acute scientific and strategic imperative to the establishment
of new emerging teams, and identifies potential project leaders. The
Board encourages international collaborations particularly through
EURANDOM, (sfi)2 and SAMSI.
