The Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI) has appointed Deloitte to conduct an independent review of the its current governance arrangements.
According to a statement from the organisation, the process will involve:
- reviewing the OCI memorandum and articles of association/constitution and the governance arrangements in the constitutions of a selection of relevant comparator sports bodies and other national Olympic committees with a view to making recommendations on changes that might be made to the OCI memorandum and articles of association/constitution;
- engaging on the above with relevant stakeholders (members of the OCI Executive Committee and OCI member federations, Sport Ireland, the European Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee);
- preparation of a draft report on the findings of the review to include recommendations on governance principles that may lead to changes to the OCI memorandum and articles of association/constitution and any other relevant matters that Deloitte identifies during the course of their work and deem to be relevant.
It is anticipated that the initial exercise will be concluded within a month and that the report will then be shared with the OCI executive committee.
All agreed changes to the OCI constitution will then be put to an OCI EGM soon after.
