Administrative and budgetary questions

After reviewing the report of the Secretary-General on the composition of the Secretariat in 1976, the General Assembly decided to change the method of calculating the desirable ranges of Secretariat posts subject to geographical distribution for each Member State (the ranges guide the Secretary-General in determining how to ensure that the staff is recruited on as wide a geographical basis as possible in accordance with Article 101, paragraph 3, of the Charter of the United Nations) and confirmed the major recruitment objectives to be achieved in the composition of the Secretariat. It also requested the Secretary-General to ensure equal opportunity for the promotion of women in the Secretariat and to establish a panel to investigate allegations of discriminatory treatment.
