Mesonet Steering Committee

All governing powers of the Oklahoma Mesonet are vested in and exercised by a six-person steering committee. Each university controls interest in three seats on the committee. The committee is responsible for

  1. general supervision of the affairs, funds, and property of the Oklahoma Mesonet;
  2. establishment of organizational policies; and
  3. consultation whenever an activity creates significant obligations on network staff time or funds.

As a result, the steering committee also guides strategic planning, develops fund raising strategies, verifies compliance with state and federal statutes, monitors long-term risks, and assesses requests for substantial changes in operational and service activities.
