General Assembly resolution 63/311 on system-wide coherence covers a number of areas of significance for the ongoing work of the United Nations System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) and its three Committees. The Board’s work to enhance harmonization of business practices is, in this regard, expected to have a significant impact on streamlining administrative practices of United Nations system organizations, thereby helping ease the administrative burden on programmes. The repository of United Nations system information, especially financial data, which is being developed by the CEB secretariat, will further provide a reliable system for tracking the flow, allocation and utilization of resources in the system. As concerns system-wide evaluation, the Board has addressed the lacuna of an independent standing capacity for system-wide evaluations, and discussions are currently ongoing with the United Nations Evaluation Group and the Joint Inspection Unit on the creation of such a framework. On a number of occasions, CEB, represented by the Director of its secretariat, briefed Member States on its work in these areas to support Member States in the ongoing consultations.
