Reports of Predecessor Bodies
Until October 2001, when the United Nations System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) decided, as part of the reform of its working methods, that coordination should be pursued through more informal and flexible mechanisms rather than formal subsidiary bodies, the mandate of the Organizational Committee (OC) was to ensure the most effective organization of the work of ACC and its subsidiary bodies.
With the assistance of its members, the Committee monitored developments and trends in the international environment with the view to bringing to the attention of ACC topical and critical issues that require coordinated and complementary responses by the UN system. OC was also responsible for organizing ACC sessions, overseeing the preparation of documentation, and assisting it in monitoring the work of its subsidiary machinery. It took decisions on behalf of ACC on issues that were not political or related to policy.
