The Structural Improvements Committee (SIC) of the ICANN Board was established by the Board at its 7 November 2008 meeting. The SIC proposed revisions to its former version of the charter, including a name change to Organizational Effectiveness Committee (OEC) in 2015. The name change was intended to provide the ICANN community with more clarity about the purpose and focus of organizational reviews and how the reviews are conducted. In accordance with its responsibility, the Board Governance Committee (BGC) reviewed and agreed with the SIC's proposed revisions to the Committee's name and its Charter. The Board approved the charter and name change at its 28 July 2015 meeting.
