The ANDA is governed by a unitary Board of Directors who serves the organisation as Non-Executive Directors for a period of 3 years. The Chairperson and the Board of Directors are appointed by Council on recommendation of the Executive Mayor and are remunerated according to Municipality approved rates.
The Board of Directors are independent, impartial and have a separate role and authority from the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The Board is responsible for organisational oversight whilst the CEO is responsible for the operations of the organisation including the supervision and management of staff.
The Board is primarily responsible for amongst other things reviewing and setting policies of the organisation, approving and determining the organisational structure of the organisation, setting and approving the strategic direction of the organisation, appointing, supervising and appraising the CEO, approving annual business plans and budgets, stakeholder relationships and evaluating its own and the organisation’s performance, reviewing and approving the Annual Financial Statements of the organisation as well as ensuring that the dictates of the Municipal Finance Management Act are observed. The Board is also encumbered to providing regular reports (quarterly) to the Executive Mayor and to Council about the operations of the organisation.
In order to exercise its role the Board has set up a number of Committees that help to oversee the work of the ANDA. These Committees are the Finance Audit & Risk Committee, the Trade and Investment, the Human Resources and Recruitment Committee and other ad-hoc committees that it may establish from time to time to provide needed oversight to the functions of the organisation.
