You know what? If that were the case, then I'm sure there is no need for a second-in-command to handle things for him. In other words, there is no need for RUM to exist at all!
erm.. that's quite the jump. We don't know to what extent they keep him updated, and a second-in-command handles more than just the members.
Right, so here's a no-brain-er's fact about RUM.
1. He has access to the APTX victim list and he knows about Shinichi Kudo being on the list, and it is suspicious that the recent news report spreading news about him being active, so he requests Bourbon to investigate about Shinichi.
2. He has authority to delegate orders to BO code-name members (unless Bourbon is his DIRECT subordinate; otherwise, it means he basically has authority to delegate orders to all code-name members for being number 2).
So basically he pays attention to events involving BO and has authority over BO members. That basically is all we know for now and no idea what other affairs he is in charge with, but he definitely has a hand in ordering BO members.
