Programme Management


The project is based on an exchange of Letters of Intent between the Directors of the participating institutions or services. To initiate the process, the Director requesting involvement in IBPIO is pleased asked to mail to the Chairman first.

The project and the form of co-operation are described in a document called "Operating Principles for an International Buoy Programme for the Indian Ocean". This document is deposited with the Secretariats of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
