Agency board member may feel that they need to get the organization to either change or maintain its focus and purpose.

Organizational Mandates: formal mandates are those required by a funding or authorizing group. If these mandates are not met, the organization may face serious sanctions including (possibly) the inability to operate. Informal mandates are those expectations that may remain current spoken.

Mandates include both those things an organization is required to do as well as those things that are not required but expected.
