Yearbook of the United Nations, 2000. Part 5, Institutional, administrative and budgetary questions. Chapter 1, Strengthening and restructuring of the United Nations system
In 2000, the United Nations introduced new measures to further the process of reform of the Organization, including the drafting of a human resources reform package, the elaboration of an information technology policy and the development of a capital master plan. In his report to the Millennium Summit of the General Assembly, the Secretary-General identified constraints preventing the Organization from being more modern and flexible. The Assembly, in the Summit Declaration, urged the Secretariat to make better use of its resources by adopting the best management practices and technology available. The Secretary-General reported on the implementation of Assembly resolution 54/14 on measures adopted to improve procurement in the United Nations and in the field. He reviewed the work of the UN oversight bodies: the Office of Internal Oversight Services and the Joint Inspection Unit. The Secretary-General reported some progress in the continuing discussions on increasing the membership of the Security Council within the Open-ended Working Group on the Question of Equitable Representation on and Increase in the Membership of the Security Council and Other Matters related to the Security Council. He made recommendations to further implement the resolutions of the Assembly and the Economic and Social Council on the restructuring and revitalization of the United Nations in the economic, social and related fields.
