Guidelines for NCPDP Commitment
- Only certain staff and the Board of Trustees can commit financial or other resources of the Council
- NCPDP’s Antitrust Policy must be adhered to at all times
- Due diligence and consensus building procedures must be followed that allow for fair and balanced representation of all aspects of an issue
Work group co-chairs, task group leaders, committee chairs and committee vice chairs are the only ones authorized to meet to speak on behalf of the task groups or work groups, efforts and business. They must report back to the appropriate work group, task group or committee on the outcome of any such meetings. Only the authorized designee should be meeting with these groups which must be approved by the Standardization Co-Chairs and the President of NCPDP.
Any commitment made outside of these guidelines will result in NCPDP being unable to support, financially or otherwise, that commitment.
Work group co-chairs, task group leaders, committee chairs and committee vice chairs do not have the authority to commit the organization to anything – engage NCPDP staff early and often.
