Standard Advisory Group
A core activity of the GSA is to establish and promote standards and to award professional qualifications to support the development of best practice throughout the sourcing industry.
To ensure that there is both market intelligence and quality oversight the GSA has established a Standards Advisory Group (SAG).
The terms of reference for the SAG are outlined below.
To review GSA standards and qualifications and provide advice and feedback on the quality of their content, design and practicality.

The SAG will meet bi-annually to review and advise on strategy and performance relating to GSA standards and qualifications.
The SAG will meet ad hoc to consider proposals for new qualifications and standards or to consider any significant changes in current GSA qualifications or standards.
The SAG may also be called to extraordinary meetings when necessary and will be an escalation body for standards and qualifications users.

A report of the SAG meetings will be made available to the members of the other GSA Committees.
