Type of administration
The Board of Directors is the executive management and is responsible for the performance of Facilicom and its divisions. The Board of Directors develops the strategy and long-term planning, monitors the risk profile, manages the division and staff directors, draws up the annual accounts, and assesses the key performance indicators and the corporate plans of the divisions and other business units.
Because Facilicom places responsibilities at low levels throughout the organisation, sound and objective management information is essential. Facilicom executes data processing centrally, by means of a shared service centre. This way, the correctness of data is monitored well, expertise is shared, back-office costs are reduced, and divisions are able to concentrate on their core business.
