Re: [802SEC] Change in WG treasury signatory requirements in WG P&P

Thanks for doing the research.
Thus we have the information that there is no explicit requirement.
What did you come across in the way of any other explicit requirements for operation of WG treasuries?
Or rather, is it the case that this is a largely undefined area for SA level governance?
If it is the latter, then it would be a good idea to figure out the implicit requirements rather than go off and make different rules that are likely to be overridden/changed when the SA gets around to this area.

Best regards,

Having searched through the Standards Board Bylaws, Standards Association Bylaws, Standards Board Operations Manual, and the IEEE Financial Operations manual, I can find no requirement that the Sponsor Chair be signatory on WG bank accounts.

In fact, I can find no requirement that any sponsor officer be a signatory on a WG bank account.  That requirement seems to be imposed by the LMSC.  So we (the LMSC) are free to change that.

(Actually, that seems like a perfectly reasonable requirement to me.)
Perhaps one of my colleagues who is a little more up to date on governance and SA requirements can chime in on this.

Therefore, if only one signature is to be added, it should be the chair.
I would expect that if the occasion arises that either the chair or the treasurer has to get into a WG bank account it is likely to be a one-time event to take over the account.  For an event of that magnitude, we are better having the chair be in on it.

Therefore, I will oppose any change to the P&P that puts anyone in 802 outside the WG onto the account if it does not include the 802 Chair.

If any of the changes are to go into the P&P, may I kindly suggest that we make them as part of the new P&P in November?

One of my self-assigned tasks was to review all P&Ps, manuals, and the like
for any and all rules pertaining to my position.  One of the rules I came
across was a requirement in the WG P&Ps that all WG bank accounts add the
Sponsor Chair as a signatory.

My suggestion is that we require either the Sponsor Chair or the Sponsor
Treasurer to be added as a signatory on all WG bank accounts.  This change,
to me, makes sense in that the Sponsor Treasurer is explicitly tasked with
overseeing all WG treasurers.

I will be proposing modified text at some point to implement this change.
