Project governance will be managed through the committee of management, the project steering group and the sub-project management team
Committee of Management
This group has oversight of the full WSAA pipe condition assessment program.
They are a group of key water business representatives, with not only a detailed knowledge of pipe condition assessment but also with strategic insight into the long-term direction needed for pipe condition assessment.
The group needs also to provide a robust view of the needs of the industry.
To be an effective decision-making body it comprises of 6 to 8 water industry representatives who are WSAA members.
Project Steering Group
This group has oversight of the CRC-P project and provides direction as required.
They consist of key water business representatives that will be involved in the project, a research lead from each of the universities involved in the project and one representative per international organisation.

WSAA – act as secretariat
Utility Lead – sits on the Project Steering Group and reports back progress
Utility Lead – from project participants, not necessarily on the Project Steering Group
University Lead – ensures that the research plan is being delivered to expectations
International Organisations Lead – provides feedback with respect to their region
