The Board maintains four standing committees to assist it in discharging its oversight responsibilities. Each committee performs
its duties as assigned by the Board in compliance with Microsoft's
Bylaws and its charter.
The directors who serve on these committees are independent. In determining the independence of a director, the Board has
director independence guidelines to assist in affirmatively determining that a director has no relationship that would interfere
with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.
The current members for each board committee are listed below. To learn more, see the
full list of Microsoft Board members and their biographies.
