to bring in new hardware to replace the hardware that was destroyed in the disaster, DELL Inc. does have computers with monitors and software on standby to replace the destroyed items in the natural disaster. Richman Investments also has a contract with CISCO to bring in new servers and switches to replace the equipment that was also destroyed in the natural disaster. And finally, Richman Investments has J & J Cabling Company on standby just in case new CAT Cable will have to be run. Richman’s IT Department has an offsite back up with a company called, “Barracuda Networks.” This will let Richman Investments IT Department have a way to have all data backed up offsite so no data can be destroyed.
Information about the work of Richman, the governing body and employees will be available on request. Richman will only withhold information if there is an issue that requires confidentiality, perhaps because it is sensitive in a personal, financial or commercial way, where the disclosure of information is covered by legislation or where providing this information is not practical.
The decision on whether information is sensitive in a personal, financial or commercial way will be made by the Senior Management Team or Chairman of Richman.
Interested parties will be allowed to attend a meeting of the Committee of Management as an observer to non confidential parts of the meeting. Advance notice of 14 working days will be required to enable the agenda to be prepared where any sensitive issues can be discussed at the end of the meeting and to ensure the venue and catering arrangements are appropriate for the numbers attending.
Committee papers will be accessible to Departmental Managers, with the exception of information which is sensitive in a personal, financial or commercial way, or where the disclosure is covered by legislation. Departmental Managers will provide an update to their staff at team meetings on items they feel are appropriate.
