Ensuring operational effectiveness to support Agenda 2030
The High-level Committee on Management (HLCM) is responsible to the Chief Executives Board (CEB) for coherent, efficient and cost‐effective management across the United Nations system of organizations. HLCM acts on behalf of and in the name of CEB on matters affecting the administrative management of all member organizations. It is charged with identifying and analyzing administrative management issues of common concern, which require a system‐wide response. It is authorized to take decisions on behalf of the Executive Heads and to identify, promote and coordinate management reforms that will improve services, achieve productivity improvements and increase efficiency and effectiveness across the United Nations system.
HLCM promotes and coordinates reforms relating to administrative and management issues by advancing and accelerating management coordination and mutual recognition and harmonization of business practices. The work of the Committee is firmly anchored in intergovernmental mandates - among others, those arising from the most recent General Assembly resolutions on Quadrennial comprehensive policy review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system (67/226 and 71/243).
HLCM’s work focuses on the broad areas of financial management, procurement, human resources, digitalization and technology, and safety & security. The Committee is supported by its Networks (add links to CEB mechanisms) and its ad-hoc working groups and task forces.
The work of HLCM is supported by its functional networks:
- Human Resources Network
- Finance and Budget Network
- Digital and Technology Network
- Procurement Network
- Inter-Agency Security Management Network
