Strategic Relationship and Assurance Meetings

The Strategic Relationship and Assurance Meetings (SRAMs) replaced the Centre Assurance Boards (CABs) in 2020 following a review of the NERC-Centre relationship agreements and NERC's assurance requirements within UKRI.

The scope of each SRAM is laid out in its Terms of Reference. It also provides a forum for the Centres to report on and discuss their national capability funding.

The SRAMs currently cover the following research centres:

  • British Antarctic Survey (BAS)
  • British Geological Survey (BGS)
  • NERC Centre for Atmospheric Sciences (NCAS)
  • NERC Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO)
  • National Oceanography Centre (NOC)
  • UK Centre of Ecology and Hydrology (UKCEH).
