The Management Committee was established in 2005 to consider internal reform and management-related issues requiring strategic direction from the Secretary-General.[1]

Its mandate was expanded in 2006 to follow up on and ensure implementation of the recommendations of oversight bodies such as the Board of Auditors, Joint Inspection Unit, and Office of Internal Oversight Services.[2]


As originally established, the Management Committee was chaired by the Secretary-General and included the following officials:

  • Deputy Secretary-General
  • Chef de Cabinet
  • Under-Secretary-General for Management
  • Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs
  • Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations
  • Under-Secretary-General for General Assembly and Conference Management

In current practice, the meetings of the Committee, which meets monthly, are chaired by the Chef de Cabinet and include the heads of the major departments at Headquarters, the Director of the Ethics Office, the United Nations Ombudsman, as well as the Executive Secretaries of the offices away from Headquarters.

A related body that addresses management policy and procedures but which is more representative of the broader Secretariat is the Management Client Board, established in 2019 as part of the management reform.
