Administrative and staff matters

In 2012, the United Nations continued its efforts to strengthen the organizational and administrative functioning of the Organization with a view to implementing the decisions and mandates of its legislative bodies more effectively. The General Assembly and its subsidiary bodies, including the Office of Internal Oversight (OIOS), the Independent Audit Advisory Committee and the Joint Inspection Unit examined issues of managerial reform and external and internal oversight. The Assembly approved the recommendations of those bodies for improving internal controls, accountability mechanisms and organizational efficiency, including for promoting effective information and communications technology governance. The Assembly requested the Secretary-General to propose a review of conference servicing, with a view to identifying innovative ideas and cost-saving measures.
