Following the refocusing of the programme, the IGC Bureau, in cooperation with the SAC, will be used to discuss the issue-driven pertinence of the projects and to approve the competence and expertise of the researchers and policy formulators involved.

During its 6th Session (19-21 February 2003), the IGC MOST recommended that:

- "The role of the IGC Bureau should be considerably strengthened and it should meet twice a year".

- "The working group, consisting of the IGC Bureau and the SAC will develop a new result oriented work programme covering the conceptual development of the policy research interface, methodology and international comparative perspectives, taking into consideration the initiatives coming from different stakeholders".
