Funds and Assets Management Committee (FAMC) and Working Committee (WCom) announcement regarding Eco Service
For several months the FAMC, in close collaboration with the WCom, have been reviewing the situation at Eco Service. Separately and together both the FAMC and WCom heard from the executives Auralice, Suryan, Gillian and Jayamoorthy.
A financial investigation and review of service performance revealed an unacceptable and inadequate level of performance and concluded that Eco Service has not been managed transparently and beyond personal interest. As a result, the best interests of the service, and therefore of our community, have not been served.
Taking into consideration that the four executives were no longer working as a cohesive team with the consequent impact this has had on the effective running of Eco Service, and that they bear responsibility for the proper functioning of the service, the FAMC and WCom have concluded that the entire current team will be replaced.
The FAMC has requested the Auroville Board of Services to recommend a new team that will be efficient and dynamic, moving this critical Auroville Service into the future.
