Definition – An institutioninfo-icon is an organisation founded for a religious, educational, professional or social purpose and is typically a formal legal entity. In the context of SUMP, public authorities are the lead institutions with specific responsibilities, resources and powers to carry out planning and implementation activities.

Relevance to SUMP – A public authorityinfo-icon takes the lead role in SUMP preparation, but should engage other institutions in plan preparation through participationinfo-icon and integrationinfo-icon. In some cases, other institutions may be prepared to dedicate their own resources to SUMP development (see also governanceinfo-icon). For example, charities/NGOs may assist with citizeninfo-icon participation processes and professional institutions may offer advice and technical support.
