The role of the board includes to approve strategic and operating plans, review the company’s performance against plans, and seek advice and recommendations from the SRA Research Funding Panel for contestable investment of the substantial SRA Research Funding Pool.

All SRA directors are expected to have a demonstrated capacity to contribute at board level including a sound understanding of governance.
