2-3. Method of Operation

It is understood by the MRDC's management officials, Personnel Demonstration Project Manager, the EEO Officer, and the LQIP Coordinator that the PMB will operate on a consensus basis where consensus is defined basically as agreement by all parties involved in any Board decision or action. Consensus occurs only after deliberation and discussion of pros and cons of the issues, and when all (not a majority) of the members are in agreement. Each member of the PMB must be satisfied as to the ultimate course of action to be taken. Likewise, every member of the PMB will have access to the same information on any issue brought before the PMB. However, in the absence of a consensus, a majority will rule.
