"In recent years, ACC has repeatedly called upon the General Assembly and the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) to restore the competitiveness of United Nations common system remuneration. In a statement submitted to the General Assembly in 1996 (A/C.5/51/25 and Corr.1, annex) ACC stressed the importance of there being simultaneous movement on two fronts: the active, continuing pursuit of efficiency, enhanced performance, including managerial performance, and structural and management reform; and an equally active pursuit by ICSC of the measures required to restore competitive conditions of service through the rebuilding of the Noblemaire principle. Both of these objectives are part of the established policy of the General Assembly. They both must be pursued vigorously and in a mutually reinforcing way.
