The Planning and Resources Committee devolves some of its work to its three sub-committees as follows:
The Buildings Committee gives Technical Approvals for capital building projects, and reviews retrospectively those given by the Space Management and Minor Works Sub-committee of the Resource Management Committee, giving advice where necessary about how to approach future decisions. Estate Management advises and conducts the operational work of this committee, with the assistance of the Finance Division and the Planning and Resource Allocation Office. The Buildings Committee also advises the PRC on the annual budget needed in the Building Maintenance Fund for the maintenance of the operational estate, and gives both Technical Approvals and technical advice on the management of the operational estate.
The Buildings Committee has power to delegate maintenance responsibility to Departments which are able to demonstrate the necessary expertise.
Membership of each of these Committees is published annually in the Reporter:
