Mandate

After broad consultation within the CMS community, to bring to the executive a recommendation on the appropriate administrative structure for the disbursement of funds from the income of the endowment. The Task Force should address in particular:

  • Make-up of the governing body and how its members will be determined.

  • Terms of reference of the governing body.

  • Terms governing the selection of projects and disbursement of funds.

In preparing their recommendations the Task Force should address the following questions:

  • What is the process for applying for funding and how will funds be distributed?

  • Could awards be made for multiple years (that is, $x per annum for three years)?

  • Who will be eligible to apply?

  • How should applications be made? What form should they be in?

  • What is the time-frame?

  • What restrictions might there be on the level of funds requested?

  • What role will leverage play (will requests with matching finds from elsewhere be favoured)?

  • How will one project be selected over another?

  • What kinds of projects will be funded?

  • How might this decision fit within the CMS strategic plan?

  • Could the funds be used for operating expenses?
