We are stuck with the fact that the IASA has final authority and I understand the point you are making (such conflict would IMHO ultimately result in an RSE walking away). I interpret what you seem to be calling for is that that final details are  done by IASA with the RSEs input being taken seriously and being involved. To me that is captured in the word 'cooperation'.

So would s/input/cooperation/ make more clear that this is a mutual process.?
