The Management Committee is responsible for overall control of the budget of the Institute, and for its short-term and long-term financial planning. The Director is responsible to the Management Committee, which provides essential advice and support in relation to fund-raising activity, employment of staff at the Institute, appointment of organisers of programmes, housing, library and computing facilities, publicity, and general oversight of all activities of the Institute.

Its aim is to facilitate to the fullest possible extent the smooth and effective running of the visitor research programmes of the Institute and all related activities. The Committee is especially concerned with the interactions between the Institute and its funding bodies, particularly the UK Research Councils, Cambridge University, the Cambridge Colleges, the London Mathematical Society, the Leverhulme Trust, and others. It generally meets three times a year.

The Management Committee is currently chaired by Dr Ewan Kirk.
