The Director General is responsible for the overall management of the Secretariat assisted by four divisional Directors. This responsibility comes with certain obligations and authorities. Foremost is the obligation to ensure the Secretariat is financially sound as a going concern and that it has the capacity to continue to function effectively in the service of its members. There is also an obligation to ensure the assets and resources of the Secretariat are properly looked after and they are kept in a condition that assures functionality and durability.
Decisions regarding expenditure of funds and day-to-day administrative requirements of the Secretariat are delegated authority and are conferred on the Director General by the Governing Body. This also includes the authority to recruit staff up to the Deputy Director General.
