Members are expected to be present at every meeting. Substitutes are not permitted, although guests are encouraged. The making of decisions will not be postponed or nullified due to the absence of the member of the affected organization.
It is the responsibility of the E-governance Board to set direction for Oregon.gov and the shared Web environment; however, direction and policies need to be supported by all. In order to ensure that directions and policies are set with a full understanding of the issues and the impact of the decision, we agree that:
Decisions, appropriate to the jurisdiction of the E-governance Board will be reached by consensus of members present. Consensus is defined as achievement of full support for a decision after a complete airing of different viewpoints. Consensus is achieved through discussion, not voting. If the group cannot reach consensus, the majority and minority options will be presented to the DAS Deputy Director with a recommendation for resolution.
The board will continually look at opportunities to communicate relevant information to appropriate audiences.
