Finance and Personnel Committee

NIRPC has established a Finance and Personnel Committee composed exclusively of Commission members appointed by the Chair. This Committee exercises financial oversight, procurement, budget development, and personnel policies over Commission operations and establishes more detailed accounts. Meetings typically take place prior to Commission and Executive Board meetings where the Finance and Personnel Chair reports and presents any actions taken by the Committee.
