PCO board of directors is the organization's governing body, elected by the members at an annual general meeting. All members are responsible for gaining a basic understanding and initiating action in support of PCO's mission, goals and programs. This includes assisting in expanding PCO's outreach and increasing its visibility and donor support. All board members are volunteers and serve without compensation
The board of directors appoints PCO's Executive Director, Director of Programme, treasurer and secretary. The Executive Director in liaison with the Director of Programmes recruits the rest of the team and other senior managers in charge of finance, and administration, human resources, program, and external relations.
PCO has sound financial systems that ensure transparency, accountability, judicious use of resources including efficient financial policies, systems and processes. Financial processes follow a Field Financial Manual (FFM), which is based on Generally Acceptable Accounting Principles (GAAPs). The FFM provides the guidelines on grants management and expenditure. To ensure financial information integrity, PCO utilises Quick Books Systems Accounting Package to input, track and monitor all financial transactions and this system can accommodate different donor requirements in real time. PCO financial records are audited as required by donors of various projects, as well as internally by a team of auditors drawn from the country and regional office.
