Hi Ian -

The roles and decision making powers of the SPI project liaison are consistent with those vested already in the OBF President through the OBF's bylaws as far as OBF assets and their use are concerned. So, I think it's OK to label the OBF president the "authoritative decision maker" for the kinds of decisions required of an SPI project liaison, at least to the extent that I have read about and understand them. It doesn't matter here, I think, whether in a concrete case the OBF President would need to follow certain OBF procedures (such as call a OBF Board meeting) before s/he can render or communicate the decision requested by SPI, so long as there is a process for this laid down (which it is).
