6. A board of directors supervises the administration of the Agency and is accountable to the Government for the Agency’s decisions, and the chair is answerable to the Minister for such decisions.
The Minister may issue written directives to the board of directors on matters which, in the Minister’s opinion, relate to public interest issues or the collaboration policy referred to in subparagraph 12 of the second paragraph of section 26, or could affect public finances.
Such directives require the approval of the Government and come into force on the date of their approval. Once approved, they are binding on the Agency and the Agency must comply with them.
