Additional questions: 1. Have the board members acknowledged that they have read and understood the mission of the public authority? The Members approved the Authority’s Mission Statement as part of the Multi-Year Strategic Program Plan at the June 22, 2009 Board Meeting. 2. Who has the power to appoint the management of the public authority? The Board has the power to appoint the Officers of the Authority under Section 1852(a) of the Public Authorities Law and Article III Section 2 of the Authority’s By- laws. 3. If the Board appoints management, do you have a policy you follow when appointing the management of the public authority? Article IV of the Authority’s By-laws sets forth the responsibilities of each of the Officers of the Authority. The Board seeks candidates who are qualified to carry out these responsibilities based on educational background and professional experience. 4. Briefly describe the role of the Board and the role of management in the implementation of the mission. The Board sets overall policy for the Authority and oversees the Chief Executive Officer and other Officers in the effective and ethical management of the Authority. Management implements the policies and programs approved by the Board and reports to the Board on progress. The Members annually review and approve the Multi-Year Strategic Program Plan (“Strategic Plan”). This is a high-level description of planned programs and expenditures over the next three years. It is reviewed in detail by an advisory committee of the Board, which then makes a recommendation to the Board for approval. The Officers then use the approved Strategic Plan to develop the Authority’s annual Budget, including specific program expenditures. This proposed Budget is then reviewed in detail by advisory committees of the Board. After detailed review of the proposed Budget, consistent with the Strategic Plan, the committees determine whether to recommend approval of the Budget to the Board. The Board approves the Budget annually and may approve revisions over the course of the fiscal year, as appropriate. Following approval of the Budget, including the planned program expenditures, the Board receives quarterly reports detailing the status of all Authority procurements, by program, and an accounting of expenditures, by program. In addition, the Board receives and approves all the provisions included in the Annual Report required by Section 2800 of the Public Authorities Law. 5. Has the Board acknowledged that they have read and understood the responses to each of these questions? The Board meets on April 12, 2010, at which time the Members will review and acknowledge that the Members have read and understood the responses to each of these questions. Thereafter, NYSERDA will notify ABO of any changes that are made, and that the Board has made the required acknowledgment.
