ANZIC Governing Council
The Governing Council is a steering committee for the Australia-NZ IODP Consortium (ANZIC), and looks after broad policy. It provides scientific and financial oversight of Australian activities including those of the Australian IODP Office (AIO) and the Science Committee, in conjunction with the ANU Delegate (Director, Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University), because ANU handles the consortium funds and hosts the AIO.
