The advisory board supplements Palkeet's own expertise, offers an outside perspective, and supports management in evaluating and developing strategy and business operations and in benchmarking, for example. The advisory board is appointed by the Ministry of Finance for a maximum term of four years at a time.

Customer committee

Palkeet’s customer committee is a key operator in the cooperation between the customers and the Service Centre. The objective of the customer committee is to support the further development of the Service Centre's services, operating models and systems and brainstorm and develop new services from the perspective of the customer. It also serves as an important  communication channel in gathering information about the expectations of and changes in customer agencies as well as potential development areas. The customer committee can also be harnessed to promote the implementation of changes to financial and HR services in ministries and agencies as well as assess the implementation of these changes.
