Advisory Group

The Advisory Group (AG) is part of the PIP Framework's "Governance and Review" structure. Its functions include monitoring implementation of the PIP Framework, and providing evidence-based reporting, assessment and recommendations regarding its functioning. Among its many areas of work, the AG interacts with industry and other stakeholders and provides advice to the Director-General on the use of the Partnership Contribution. The AG also provides to the Director-General an annual report on its evaluation of implementation of the PIP Framework.
