Improved management

The UN is incapable of reform? Look again.

UNDP is working to improve its management by adopting a series of measures, such as financial disclosure and standardizing information available on the Internet, to improve efficiency and accountability at the agency.

Other measures include the establishment last year of an independent audit advisory committee which has since met four times. “In the ongoing dialogue, it is extremely useful to get that external advice; it’s the first time UNDP has opened up itself to that,” Associate Administrator Mr. Melkert said.
