Dear Colleagues
 The recent social media campaign has come to my attention and the falseaccusations it contains about the management of the QMA is disappointing. Since the inception of QMA, one of our main objectives has been to instillclear systems of transparency. As an entity that runs culturalinstitutions, with a working programme that differs vastly from other Government entities, we have requested a status change. I am pleased tosay that this has been approved by the new Government and we are currentlyfinalizing the transition of the QMA into a "private entity for publicgood".Why is this important? It is important because our current governance forces us to work under "exceptions". These include the necessity to hire staff into consultancy positions and the ability to award a "single source" tender becausespecialized services are not always available in more than one company,working hours and more. With our transition there will be new policies put in place to govern the organisation encompassing finance, humanresources, the tendering process, etc. This transition will also requiremore individual accountability: employees of the QMA will be expected totake more responsibility and I have no doubt you will all meet thisexpectation. It will also mean that new contracts for all of our employeeswill be drawn up setting clear individual goals. The Museum of IslamicArt has already begun to implement some of these policies and we willgradually apply them throughout the whole organization. As a "privateentity for public good" we will continue to be subject to audit by theState Audit Bureau. I also would like to address a personal issue that has been floatingaround. I am not leaving the QMA. The QMA is an initiative that myfather, the former Emir began and which is strongly supported by our newruler H.H. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. The QMA has always workedvery closely with the Ministry of Culture and will continue to do so under its new status and capacity. Our 10/10 strategy will be realigned withour priorities and the details of this will be announced by our CEO, EdDolman in the next few weeks.
