The University of South Pacific Commission commences work

The University of the South Pacific (USP) Sub-Committee made up of Samoa deputy Prime Minister Fiame Naomi Mataafa (Chair), Cook Islands Prime Minister Henry Puna and Fiji's Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum met in Auckland Tuesday with the USP Council approved three-member Commission, consisting of Professor Satish Chand, Professor Jenni Lightowlers and Graeme McNally.

The Sub-Committee and Commission discussed the work of the Commission based on the USP Council mandated Terms of Reference, which includes addressing the matters arising from the BDO Report. They also discussed the logistical arrangement for the independent functioning of the Commission. 

Meanwhile, the USP appointed Commissioners work will be focussed on development and implementation of an action plan to support outcomes for a stronger USP.

The Commissioners, through their newly appointed Chair, Jenni Lightowlers, note that they will operate independently of the Sub-Committee and USP, and with the delegated authority of Council.

The Commission will work in accordance with the USP Council mandated Terms of Reference. During the conduct of the Commission’s activities the Commission expects that the University would continue to operate in accordance with its existing policies and procedures.

The Commission looks forward to briefing the University community in the near future.
