193.3. The function of the resource allocation committee is to make recommendations to the school service centre’s board of directors with a view to establishing objectives and principles governing the annual allocation of revenues in accordance with section 275, determining how those revenues are to be allocated in accordance with section 275.1, including by setting out the criteria to be used to determine the amounts allocated, and determining how student services are to be distributed in accordance with section 261.
To that end, the committee shall set up a consultation process allowing it to obtain all the necessary information on the needs of the various sectors.
In addition to student services, the committee may also submit the distribution of other professional services to the consultation process.
Under the consultation process, each school service centre and educational institution must provide the committee with any information or document necessary for the exercise of its functions.
At the conclusion of the consultation process, the director general or any other member designated by the committee must present recommendations at a meeting of the school service centre’s board of directors concerning the objectives and principles to govern the allocation of revenues, the annual allocation of those revenues and the distribution of student services and other professional services, as applicable. If the school service centre’s board of directors fails to implement a recommendation, it must give reasons for its decision at the meeting at which the recommendation is rejected. A copy of the minutes of the meeting of the school service centre’s board of directors containing the decision with reasons must be sent to the resource allocation committee.
