Where does accountability lie when the consortium manages a contract?

The accountability of any contract won will rest with the Greater Together board of trustees in its capacity of being legally responsible for the company and its affairs.  The limited liability status of the company is designed to safeguard the board against any potential contractual liabilities that may be incurred.

The company will have the power to sub-contract with its member organisations and an appropriate balance of risk will be sought between the consortium (as the company holding the overarching contract) and the individual members holding sub contracts.
