Mandate Letters

B.C. public sector organizations, including post-secondary institutions, operate under Taxpayer Accountability Principles (PDF, 1.9MB) that are designed to strengthen accountability, promote cost control and ensure organizations operate in the best interest of taxpayers.

One of the requirements under the Taxpayer Accountability Principles is annual Mandate Letters signed by all board members. These Mandate Letters:

  • Outline the institution mandate and Government priorities
  • Acknowledges the statutory obligations to act in the best interest of the institution
  • Affirms the commitment to take into account the Taxpayer Accountability Principles when carrying out the institution mandate

The Remainder of the Mandate Letters will be posted once signed.
