The purpose of the CISD Advisory Board is to discuss and make scientific and analytical recommendations to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). The board meets bi-monthly bringing together senior leaders from the ONS, UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and leading scientific academics.

The Board provides current and strategic advice to the programme and makes suggestions on the direction of other COVID-19 related surveillance delivered by the ONS. They aim to ensure the COVID-19 Infection Survey evolves to meet the needs of decision makers as the pandemic progresses and leaves a legacy to support future health population.

The board provide strategic advice and guidance on:
