The Institute is an autonomous institution and operates under the general direction of a Governing Board composed of representatives from government, industry and universities in each of the BLS countries. The Board meets three times a year for at least two days in member countries on a rotational basis to discuss matters pertaining to management training programmes, staff development, finances, relations with donor agencies and other policy matters.

Administratively, it is headed by a Regional Director who is the Chief Executive. Each country has a campus headed by a Country Director. The Regional Office of IDM is located in Gaborone , Botswana .
