Effective functioning of the organization

Several operational processes underpin the functioning of the United Nations Secretariat, with its annual resources of about $13 billion and more than 37,000 civilian staff in 450 duty stations. Many of those processes are being substantially overhauled in 2018/19 as a result of the Secretary-General’s management reform initiative. They include the management of finance, human resources, information and communications technology, supply chains, facilities, conference services, and security and safety operations, as well as the communication of the Organization’s work and the strengthening of relations with the principal organs of the United Nations, Member States and other stakeholders.
