The primary task of the Academy Council is to monitor the management of the OeAW. The Academy Council has discretionary competence, therefore all major decisions of the Presiding Committee need its approval.
The Academy Council consists of 16 delegates who are elected by the General Assembly and of whom 4 are not members of the Academy. Additionally, within the Academy Council there is an audit committee whose tasks include monitoring the accounts and the efficacy of the internal control system.
