Orkney Islands Council
Working together for a better Orkney

Committees: Agendas, Reports and Minutes

Orkney Islands Council operates with a traditional committee structure.

From May 2012, the Council’s committees were restructured to align with the revised management structure, with each executive directorate reporting to a distinct service committee.

Membership of the Council's committees can be found from the 'Related Links' section of this page.

A number of documents, comprising the Council's Constitution, set out how the committees operate.

The Scheme of Administration sets out the allocation of the functions of the Council among the Committees of the Council, and also the delegation to Committees of authority to exercise the functions of the Council.

The Scheme of Administration should be read in conjunction with the Standing Orders, the Financial Regulations, the Contract Standing Orders and the Scheme of Delegation to Officers.

The Scheme of Administration, the Standing Orders and the Scheme of Delegation to Officers can be downloaded from the 'Related Downloads' section of this page.

The Financial Regulations and the Contract Standing Orders are available from the 'Related Links' section of this page.
