Section Liaison Officers
The Section Liaison Officers play a crucial role in supporting sections by assisting in the preparation of basic services development strategies, decisions, and monitoring.
Their central tasks include coordinating discussions on similar topics across sections, monitoring needs for complementary activities and collaboration between working groups, and supporting TA3 in the coordinated monitoring and reporting of service developments across all phases and developers.
The Section Liaison Officer ensures that the sections remain informed about the decision-making process and that it supports the sections' goals for a basic service. These officers are administered by TA3.
