Yearbook of the United Nations, 2001. Part 5, Institutional, administrative and budgetary questions. Chapter 1, Strengthening and restructuring of the United Nations system
In 2001, further progress was made in implementing the Secretary-General's programme of reform of the Organization, as Member States endorsed proposals in the priority areas of human resources reform, information technology policy and the capital master plan for refurbishing the UN Headquarters complex. Procurement reform had been completed successfully, the streamlining of the Organization's rules and procedures progressed, efforts continued to shift to a more results-based mode of operation and performance indicators were being introduced at all levels. As follow-up to the outcome of the 2000 Millennium Summit, the Secretary-General presented a “road map” towards the implementation of the goals and commitments made by Member States in the Millennium Declaration, which the General Assembly recommended should be considered as a useful guide when formulating plans for implementing those goals. The Assembly also took up the issue of revitalizing its work through improvement of its procedures and working methods and adopted a text addressing relevant issues concerning its agenda, consideration of reports, organization of work, role of the Assembly President and the use of modern technology. The Secretary-General reported on the restructuring and revitalization of the United Nations in the economic, social and related fields, describing progress in the implementation of relevant resolutions of the Assembly and the Economic and Social Council and recommending measures for further progress. He also reviewed the work of UN oversight bodies—the Office of Internal Oversight Services and the Joint Inspection Unit—and reported continuing progress in ongoing 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. A review of the outcome of the consolidation of the three former economic and social departments into the Department of Economic and Social Affairs confirmed that the emergent Department had made notable progress in implementing the goals for which it was established
