The ANDI organisation (The business plan)
ANDI will be established in 2011 as an organisation that is majority owned, governed and funded by the community. Final administrative and governance arrangements will be decided after consultation with community groups and partners. The model below is proposed on this basis. For the first six months of the year, as it continues to evolve, ANDI will be housed in an existing partner organisation. This will provide ANDI with the administrative and other business supports to help its evolution. This recognises that fundraising and partnership generation activities will provide support to launch and sustain ANDI, but provides an incubation period for ANDI in its formative stages. The evolved ANDI organisation will
have the structure and skills as shown below. Under this structure, ANDI will be led by a Board, with advisory support from fundraising, public relations and technical development experts. The key role of ANDI Director will report through the Board and will be the key conduit and liaison to the Domain Groups. These Domain Groups will play a key role in supporting the establishment of their domains and for driving research reports in areas of interest. The specific capabilities outlined that support the Director may be provided through in-kind support, through contracting arrangements (as required), or through ANDI staff.
