Decision Making Levels
At the request of the Scottish Rugby Council and Board, Scottish Rugby’s internal decision-levels are now available publicly. These have previously been approved by the Scottish Rugby Board and Council and feature some minor redactions (which are indicated) for reasons of commercial sensitivity but otherwise set out responsibility within Scottish Rugby for making various decisions. Except for the indicated redactions, the document reflects the position since the change to Bye-Laws that was approved by the members at the 2018 AGM.
The list of types of decisions is extensive, although not exhaustive, as the document explains and is part of the organisation’s internal controls and procedures. The list is derived from the contents of various source materials including the Bye-Laws and Articles of Association, as well as being referable to applicable laws, particularly the Companies Act 2006 and associated legislation.
