John Key has talked up Helen Clark in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly, saying only she can keep it relevant – a major swipe at the other candidates and countries.

Mr Key bluntly told the UN, known for its inaction, that “she gets things done”.

“This is not the time for a business as usual appointment for Secretary-General. We need someone who is up to the job,” Mr Key said.

“The next Secretary-General must have the courage, experience and skills necessary to lead this Organisation, to keep it relevant and responsive.”

Mr Key’s decision to use Ms Clark in his speech elevates the New Zealand campaign for her to be Secretary-General to another level.

His comments are also a swipe at current Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

“I’ve worked across the political divide from Helen Clark for years and I know her to be a natural leader,” Mr Key said.

“She rallies people together to find the common ground, even when the issues are difficult and the differences vast.

“She gets things done. We think it’s time for a Secretary-General like Helen Clark.”

Security Council fails Syria

Mr Key says the United Nations Security Council has failed Syria.

“We have also been deeply troubled to see the Council, the pre-eminent body for international peace and security, fail to live up to its responsibilities on the most serious crisis of our time. Syria.

“Here the Council has fallen short,” he said.

“The internal politics within the Council and the sheer complexity of the Syria crisis have obstructed a unified Council response.

“But we believe that no matter how difficult and sensitive the issues, the Council cannot watch the situation go from bad to worse for the Syrian people.

“The Security Council was established to address crises like that which we see in Syria.

“That is why New Zealand is using our Presidency of the Council to convene a leaders’ level meeting tomorrow on Syria.

“A meeting by itself won’t stop the conflict. But after more than five years of brutal fighting, and horrific humanitarian suffering, we do not think it is credible for Leaders to come to New York and not address the stark realities driving the conflict.”

“We hope tomorrow’s meeting will provide an opportunity for Council Leaders to take stock of developments, examine the fundamental issues at the heart of the conflict, and discuss how we can move towards a sustainable political solution.

“We also hope the meeting will be a chance for the Council to put its weight behind the ceasefire agreement reached between the United States and Russia.

“That agreement is the best chance we have had in some time to stop the fighting, get aid to those who need it, and get back on track for a political resolution to the crisis.”

Key speaks out against protectionism

Mr Key also took the fight to trade protectionism of the kind put forward by Donald Trump, or Brexit.

“Borders are closing to people and products, to investment, to ideas. Many states are turning inwards.”

“The politics of fear and extremism are gaining ground. Too many states are flouting the rules.”

“We must guard against creeping protectionism, and be willing to make the case for more economic engagement clearly.

“We cannot turn inwards,” he said.

“We can’t allow fear, or narrow domestic interests turn us away from an open global trading system, which has lifted millions out of poverty.”

North Korea ‘a pressing threat’

John Key made special mention of the danger of North Korea and its Nuclear weapons.

“Another critical issue on which New Zealand supports unified Council action, is the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“New Zealand believes that a strong international response is required to the DPRK nuclear test on the 9th of September, and its recent missile tests.

“The regime’s efforts to advance its nuclear and missile programmes; its callous disregard for the North Korean people – as demonstrated by the dire human rights situation in the country; and its leader’s unpredictably ruthless rule have made it one of our most pressing international security threats.

“Its provocative actions show blatant disregard for Security Council resolutions and pose a grave threat to the international law.

“They have raised tensions on the Korean peninsula to a point where the risk of conflict is dangerously high. We cannot afford further escalation.

“So New Zealand welcomes recent steps by the US and China to begin negotiating a new Security Council Resolution, following the DPRK’s recent nuclear test.

“We hope that this will send a clear signal to the North Korean leadership that continued provocative and dangerous actions are unacceptable; and that a return to the negotiating table represents the only sensible way forward.”

Trans-Pacific Partnership ‘will bring us closer together’

“We need it to find common ground that overcomes vested national interests, and agree to new international trade commitments that benefit all countries.

“In the Asia Pacific region, closer economic integration through trade agreements like the Trans Pacific Partnership and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership will also bring us closer together.

“Agreements like these will make our region and people better off by setting the conditions for more open and transparent trade.”

Conselho independente da ONU de Contas utilizado uma linguagem notavelmente direta para desancar a agência de refugiados, cujo doador maior, os Estados Unidos, contribuiu com US $ 712 milhões para o ACNUR em 2010, selon o Departamento de Estado. Os auditores destacaram que le agência de terreno, qui est financement em grande parte por contribuições voluntárias, gastou cerca de US $ 1,9 trilhão em 2010; orçamento TIC dois anos anteriores era cerca de US $ 1,1 trilhões. As Contas observou que havia “fortes indicadores de deficiências significativas na gestão financeira” da agência, dirigido desde 2005 por Antonio Guterres, forma primeiro-ministro socialista de Portugal. “Este é um grande risco para o ACNUR,” os Auditores advertiu, “dadas as crescentes pressões sobre os doadores para justificar por que eles Fornecer fundos públicos para os organismos de ajuda internacional”. Além disso, a fiscalização não ter SCCM otimista posição que la mudaria em breve, -mesmo embora a gestão do ACNUR agora diz que está trabalhando duro isso foi ampla variedade de frentes para mudar a situação preocupante. O Conselho relatório de Contas, escrito por último propósito ano, só recentemente publicado, elevou-se a primeira avaliação externa importante do comportamento do ACNUR pós-ito gastos Começou a balão drasticamente em 2008 em linha com a nova estratégia Conhecida como a avaliação global das necessidades, uma nova maneira de Os doadores encorajados a vir para cima com mais dinheiro. Ao invés de olhar para as promessas dos doadores TIC e em seguida, determinar o orçamento das TIC, o ACNUR está agora usando a avaliação global das necessidades para determinar a quantia que ela sente que tem que gastar, então a construção de um orçamento para acomodar essa perspectiva – embora, no final, ele ainda tem de gerir com a quantidade que leva dentro. A nova abordagem tem dado mais de uma inclinação bem-estar social para alívio do ACNUR esforços-mesmo que ainda é considerado principalmente como um grupo de Socorro da linha de frente Isso distribui alimentos e abrigo de emergência para as pessoas deslocadas nacional através das fronteiras pela guerra, fome e seca . Clique aqui para ver o Relatório de Contas. A administração Obama encontrou aparentemente o global das necessidades abordagem convincente. contribuições dos Estados Unidos à agência levantado aumentou em cerca de 40 por cento Entre 2008 e 2010, antes seguindo fora apenas ligeiramente no ano passado. Para este ano e no próximo, quando o ACNUR espera gastar cerca de US $ 3,3 trilhões por ano em TIC às necessidades globais, porta-voz do Departamento de Estado disse à Fox News, operadora dos EUA “vai depender de crises atuais que qui ACNUR Responde.” Para os auditores externos do ACNUR, NO ENTANTO, o resultado não é tanto as necessidades da agência como icts capacidades financeiras e de gestão – e teses que falta tristemente. Entre –outros coisas, o relatório dos Auditores Notas: -UNHCR não poderia TIC Muitos livros de cheques de equilíbrio. Nada menos que 99 das contas bancárias e investimento em TIC, segurando mais de US $ 375 milhões, “faltava up-to-date de reconciliações, um controle financeiro essencial.” Os Auditores havia alertado sobre o mesmo problema no ano anterior, e não muito foi feito sobre -lo. (O backlog HAD-se cortar a três contas ativas antes do relatório dos auditores foi publicada.) -A Agência não estava preparado para as TIC-even própria auditoria Refletindo “deficiências significativas nos sistemas no local para preparar as demonstrações TIC financeira e na qualidade da supervisão e apropriação destes processos, desde o nível executivo mais graduado e para baixo em toda a organização inteira. “-UNHCR” permanece incapaz de reunir informações e análises sobre as operações básicas de gestão de TIC “, ou” para obter um controlo completo sobre a desempenho dos parceiros de implementação de TIC ou a entrega de grandes iniciativas “Tradução :. ele não sabe o que está realmente fazendo. participação própria da -UNHCR do que é necessário em de doadores é alta. APESAR Cerca de 22 por cento das TIC $ 1,9 trilhões em gastos reais para 2010 que foram para “despesas gerais e de pessoal benefícios administrativos”, informa o relatório. No momento da auditoria, o ACNUR 6.300 funcionários regulares trabalhando em 380 escritórios alguns localizados em 125 países. – Apesar dessas despesas gerais, cerca de um terço dos gastos do ACNUR ($ 667,000,000) Fui a “Parceiro de Implementação” Significado organismos não-governamentais e outros que levantaram as operações realizadas. Quem eram eles todos, e como eles funcionavam, não foi de todo clara. O processo de selecção dos parceiros, os Auditores jour restera une “carece de rigor e transparência, aumentando o risco de fraude, corrupção, ineficiência e má parceiro de desempenho.” -mais De metade do Parceiro de Implementação tinha trabalhado para o ACNUR por mais de cinco anos, e as Contas considerou “pouca evidência de qualquer tipo de processo de seleção competitiva,” comparação de custos ou compatibilização das competências com exigências. O Conselho de Auditoria disse que era -no entanto Badly os parceiros “particularmente preocupado com a falta de transparência nos processos de seleção de parceiros e o aumento do risco de fraude e corrupção a este qui expostos ACNUR.” – Ouro para que o assunto, os funcionários do ACNUR – Musical em o campo, porém, o Conselho Fiscal não acho muito da capacidade da agência para julgá-lo. “Desempenho de rede do país ito Não permitir que a Administração faça julgamentos eficazes quanto ao custo-eficácia dos projectos e actividades ou para manter os gestores locais responsáveis pelo desempenho”, diz o relatório. Se qualquer coisa, o relatório do Conselho de Contas minimiza a gravidade da falta de campo do ACNUR da inteligência é icts operações próprias, muitos dos estaminais qui a partir de um fiasco de milhões de dólares que envolvam instalação de um sistema de software novo, o sistema, conhecido como Focus. O software deveria integrar informações recursos financeiros e humanos, a fim de impulsionar o ACNUR para uma melhor “gestão baseada em resultados.” De acordo com avaliações Another qui inspeção relatório interno da ONU Fox News informou em maio do ano passado, não-foram “anos de atrasos” Instalando em Foco, ea falta de informações afetados tem centenas de milhões de dólares em ACNUR gastos. Perguntado sobre como os EUA viram o relatório do Conselho de Contas, um porta-voz do Departamento de Estado declarou que “seguimos a étroitement questões operacionais institucional e.” O porta-voz aussi apontou para declarações feitas por os EUA em uma reunião do comitê executivo do ACNUR em outubro passado, Onde está diplomata norte-americano declarou que “Várias das conclusões da Câmara nos preocupar”, sem entrar em detalhes. Em outra sessão de “ex-com”, em Genebra, embaixador norte-americano David Robinson sublinhou que “os Estados Unidos continua a ser um parceiro comprometido com o ACNUR e os Beneficiários se reserva.” Como é que o ACNUR Itself pretende lidar com o pântano de gestão Descrito no Conselho de relatório dos auditores? Não se preocupe, selon gestão da agência. Em um adiamento quase tão longo como a investigação das Contas, o ACNUR em setembro passado esboçado tem longa lista de “medidas tomadas e propostas” para melhorar as coisas. Alguns deles, no entanto, parecia onda, ou menos de atacado. No processo de reconciliação conta bancária alarmante, por exemplo, a agência informou que já tinha feito um grande negócio, e que “contas bancárias realizada na sede estão totalmente reconciliado e são rotineiramente Reconciliados foram mensalmente.” Alvo isto exclui contas na campo, sobretudo quando os auditores são críticos de lapsos de supervisão. Ao abordar o que os auditores chamam de “deficiências em escritório de gestão financeira do país ea capacidade de relatório,” UNHCR diz que vai “sob relatórios de auditoria avaliação e inspecção, consultar com sede e escritórios e continua a analisar os dados … concentrar-se nos escritórios nacionais que precisem de maior fortalecimento das práticas de gestão financeira. Com base nesta revisão e análise, o ACNUR irá desenvolver planos de trabalho para abordar a aprovação lacunas. “Ele espera-ter o processo concluído até o final deste ano. Quando se trata de adoção de uma abordagem de “gestão de risco” para os parceiros TIC nas operações de socorro, como as Contas recomendou, UNHCR diz que primeiro deve adoptar um “diferenciado Framework Baseada em Risco” e depois aplicá-lo de forma adequada.

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees blasted for poor financial handlingBy George Russell

Published March 14, 2012

FoxNews.com
EXCLUSIVE: The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, or UNHCR, two years ago was sitting on a stockpile of $437 million in unspent cash, even as a U.N. auditing agency warned that its sloppy handling of funds imperiled future contributions from U.N. member nations
The report, issued last year but only introduced for member-state review in the U.N. General Assembly, cites UNHCR for sloppy bookkeeping, poor financial oversight, managerial disarray, and a lack of tools to judge how well it was doing its job of helping tens of millions of the world’s displaced people.
The U.N.’s independent Board of Auditors used remarkably straight-forward language to lambaste the refugee agency, whose largest donor, the United States, contributed $712 million to UNHCR in 2010, according to the State Department. The auditors noted that the relief agency, which is financed largely by voluntary contributions, spent about $1.9 billion in 2010; its budget two years earlier was about $1.1 billion.
The auditors pointed out that there were “strong indicators of significant shortcomings in financial management” at the agency, headed since 2005 by Antonio Guterres, a former Socialist prime minister of Portugal. “This is a major risk for UNHCR,” the auditors warned, “given the increasing pressures on donors to justify why they provide public funds to international aid organizations.”
Moreover, the inspectors did not seem optimistic that the situation would change soon, even though UNHCR’s management now says that it is working hard on a wide variety of fronts to change the disturbing situation.
The Board of Auditors report, written last year but only recently published, amounted to the first major external assessment of UNHCR’s behavior after its spending began to balloon dramatically in 2008 in line with a new strategy known as the Global Needs Assessment, a novel way to encourage donors to come up with more cash.
Rather than looking at its donor pledges and then determining its budget, UNHCR is now using the Global Needs Assessment to determine the amount that it feels it needs to spend, then building a budget to accommodate that perspective — though, in the end, it still must manage with the amount it takes in.
The new approach has given more of a social welfare tilt to UNHCR relief efforts, even though it is still thought of primarily as a front-line relief group that doles out emergency food and shelter to populations displaced across national borders by war, famine and drought.
Click here to see the Auditors Report.
The Obama administration has apparently found the Global Needs approach convincing. U.S. contributions to the relief agency increased by about 40 percent between 2008 and 2010, before tailing off only slightly last year.
For this year and next, when UNHCR hopes to spend about $3.3 billion a year under its Global Needs, a State Department spokesperson told Fox News, U.S. support “will depend on current crises to which UNHCR responds.”
For UNHCR’s external auditors, however, the issue is not so much the agency’s needs as its financial and management capabilities — and these it found dolefully lacking. Among other things, the auditors’ report notes:
–UNHCR could not balance its many checkbooks. No fewer than 99 of its bank and investment accounts, holding more than $375 million, ‘lacked up-to-date reconciliations, a key financial control.’ The auditors had warned about the same problem a year earlier, and not much was done about it. (The backlog had been cut to three active accounts before the auditors’ report was published.)
–the agency wasn’t even prepared for its own audit, reflecting “significant deficiencies in the systems in place to prepare its financial statements, and in the quality of the supervision and ownership of these processes, from the most senior executive level downward and across the entire organization.”
–UNHCR “remains unable to gather and analyses basic management information on its operations,” or “to get a full grip on the performance of its implementing partners or the delivery of major initiatives.” Translation: it doesn’t know what it is actually doing.
–UNHCR’s own share of what it takes in from donors is high. Despite roughly 22 percent of its $1.9 billion in actual spending for 2010 that went to “administrative overhead and staff benefits,” the report notes. At the time of the audit, UNHCR had 6,300 regular staff working in some 380 offices located in 125 countries.
— despite those overheads, roughly one-third of UNHCR’s spending ($667 million) went to “implementing partners,” meaning non-government organizations and others who carried out relief operations. Who they all were, and how well they functioned, was not at all clear. The process of selecting those partners, the auditors noted, “lacks rigor and transparency, increasing the risk of fraud, corruption, inefficiency and poor partner performance.”
–More than half of the implementing partners had worked for UNHCR for more than five years, and the auditors found “little evidence of any kind of competitive selection process,” cost comparison or matching of capabilities with requirements. The Board of Auditors said it was “particularly concerned at the lack of transparency in partner selection processes and the increased risk of fraud and corruption to which this exposes UNHCR.”
–however badly the partners — or for that matter, UNHCR staffers — performed in the field, however, the Board of Auditors did not think highly of the agency’s ability to judge it. “Performance from its country network does not enable management to make effective judgments as to the cost-effectiveness of projects and activities or to hold local managers accountable for performance,” the report says.
If anything, the Board of Auditors report underplays the seriousness of UNHCR’s lack of field intelligence on its own operations, many of which stem from a multimillion-dollar fiasco involving installation of a new, systemwide software system, known as Focus. The software was supposed to integrate financial and human resources information, in order to propel UNHCR toward better “results-based management.”
According to another internal U.N. inspection report, which Fox News reported on last May, there have been “years of delays” in installing Focus, and the lack of information has affected hundreds of millions of dollars in UNHCR spending.
Asked how the U.S. viewed the Board of Auditors report, a State Department spokesman declared that “we follow the institutional and operational issues closely.” The spokesman also pointed to statements made by the U.S. at a meeting of UNHCR’s executive committee last October, where a U.S. diplomat declared that “several of the findings of the Board concern us,” without going into detail. At another “ex-com” session in Geneva, U.S. Ambassador David Robinson underlined that “the United States remains a committed partner with UNHCR and the beneficiaries it serves.”
How does UNHCR itself intend to deal with the management swamp outlined in the Board of Auditors report?
Not to worry, according to the agency’s management. In a report nearly as long as the auditors’ investigation, UNHCR last September outlined a lengthy list of “measures taken and proposed” to improve things. Some of them, however, seemed vague, or less than wholesale.
On the alarming bank account reconciliation process, for example, the agency reported that it had already done a great deal, and that “bank accounts held at Headquarters are fully reconciled and are routinely reconciled on a monthly basis.” But this excludes accounts in the field, where the auditors are particularly critical of oversight lapses.
In addressing what the auditors call “deficiencies in country office financial management and reporting capacity,” UNHCR says it will “review relevant audit and inspection reports, consult with Headquarters and Bureaux and continue to analyse data … to focus on those country offices in need of greater strengthening of financial management practices. Based on this review and analysis, UNHCR will develop workplans to address the identified gaps.” It hopes to have the process completed by the end of this year.
When it comes to adopting a “risk-management” approach to its partners in relief operations, as the auditors recommended, UNHCR says it first must adopt a “Differentiated Risk-Based Framework” and then apply it appropriately. The agency projects, somewhat murkily, that the “overall development application of the Framework will be completed by 2014.”

Asked by Fox News last week whether it was on track to meet the many promised deadlines in its “measures taken” report, UNHCR had not replied before this

حصريا: مكتب مفوض الأمم المتحدة السامي لشؤون اللاجئين، أو المفوضية، قبل عامين كان يجلس على مخزون من 437 مليون $ نقدا غير المنفق، حتى مع وكالة التدقيق الأمم المتحدة حذرت من أن التعامل مع قذرة من الأموال للخطر المساهمات في المستقبل من الأعضاء في الأمم المتحدة الدول

وقال التقرير الصادر في العام الماضي ولكن قدم فقط للمراجعة دولة عضو في الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة، ويستشهد المفوضية للمحاسبة قذرة، والرقابة المالية الضعيفة، حالة من الفوضى الإدارية، وعدم وجود أدوات للحكم على مدى انها تقوم بعملها لمساعدة عشرات الملايين من النازحين في العالم.

مجلس إدارة مستقل مراجعي الحسابات للأمم المتحدة تستخدم اللغة بشكل ملحوظ على التوالي إلى الأمام إلى لوم لشؤون اللاجئين، الذي أكبر الجهات المانحة، والولايات المتحدة، ساهم 712،000،000 $ للمفوضية في عام 2010، وفقا لوزارة الخارجية. لاحظ مراجعو الحسابات أن وكالة الغوث، والتي يتم تمويلها إلى حد كبير من التبرعات، قضى نحو 1.9 مليار $ في عام 2010؛ وكانت ميزانيتها قبل عامين حول 1100000000 $.

وأشارت مدققي الحسابات إلى أن هناك “مؤشرات قوية من قصور كبير في الإدارة المالية” في وكالة، برئاسة منذ عام 2005 من قبل أنطونيو غوتيريس، رئيس الوزراء الاشتراكي السابق للبرتغال. “هذا هو الخطر الرئيسي للمفوضية”، وحذرت من مدققي الحسابات، “نظرا للضغوط متزايدة على الجهات المانحة لتبرير لماذا أنها توفر الأموال العامة لمنظمات الإغاثة الدولية.”
وعلاوة على ذلك، فإن المفتشين لا يبدو متفائلا بأن الوضع سيتغير قريبا، على الرغم من أن إدارة المفوضية يقول الآن أنه يعمل جاهدا على طائفة واسعة من الجبهات لتغيير الوضع مثير للقلق.
وتقرير مجلس مراجعي الحسابات، وكتب في العام الماضي ولكنها نشرت في الآونة الأخيرة فقط، وصلت إلى أول تقييم خارجي كبير من سلوك المفوضية بعد أن بدأ إنفاقها على بالون بشكل كبير في عام 2008 تماشيا مع الاستراتيجية الجديدة المعروفة باسم الاحتياجات التقييم العالمي، وسيلة جديدة لتشجيع المانحين على الخروج مع المزيد من الاموال

لم يكن حتى إعداد –the كالة للمراجعة الخاصة بها، والتي تعكس “أوجه قصور مهمة في النظم المعمول بها لإعداد بياناتها المالية، وجودة الإشراف وملكية هذه العمليات، من المستوى التنفيذي كبار الهبوط و عبر المؤسسة بأكملها. ”
–UNHCR” لا تزال غير قادرة على جمع وتحليل المعلومات الإدارية الأساسية في عملياتها “، أو” للحصول على قبضة كاملة عن أداء شركائها المنفذين أو تنفيذ مبادرات كبرى. ” ترجمة: أنها لا تعرف ماذا تفعل في الواقع
حصة –UNHCR الخاصة ما في وسعها في من المانحين عالية. وعلى الرغم من ما يقرب من 22 في المئة من سكانها 1.9 مليار $ في الإنفاق الفعلي لعام 2010 التي ذهبت إلى “النفقات العامة والموظفين فوائد الإدارية”، ويشير التقرير. وفي الوقت للمراجعة، كان لدى المفوضية 6300 الموظفين العاديين الذين يعملون في نحو 380 مكتبا منتشرة في 125 دولة.

بدلا من النظر إلى تعهدات المانحين، وبعد ذلك تحديد ميزانيتها، تقوم المفوضية الآن باستخدام العالمية تقييم الاحتياجات لتحديد المبلغ الذي يشعر أنه يحتاج إلى قضاء، ثم بناء ميزانية لاستيعاب هذا المنظور – على الرغم من، في النهاية، فإنه لا يزال يجب أن إدارة مع المبلغ الذي يأخذ في.

وقد أعطى هذا النهج الجديد أكثر من الميل الرفاه الاجتماعي في جهود الإغاثة المفوضية، على الرغم من أنه لا يزال يفكر في المقام الأول كمجموعة الإغاثة الخط الأمامي أن الصدقات للخروج الغذائية الطارئة والمأوى للمشردين عبر الحدود الوطنية بسبب الحرب والمجاعة والجفاف .

وقد وجدت إدارة أوباما على ما يبدو الاحتياجات العالمية تقترب مقنعة. مساهمات الولايات المتحدة لوكالة الغوث زيادة بنحو 40 في المئة بين عامي 2008 و 2010، قبل المخلفات خارج قليلا فقط العام الماضي.
لمدققي الحسابات الخارجيين للمفوضية، إلا أن المسألة ليست كثيرا احتياجات الوكالة عن قدرات المالية وإدارتها – وهذه وجدت تفتقر dolefully. من بين أمور أخرى، يشير تقرير مراقبي الحسابات:

–UNHCR لا يمكن تحقيق التوازن بين العديد من دفاتر الشيكات لها. ما لا يقل عن 99 من الحسابات المصرفية والاستثمارية، وعقد أكثر من 375 مليون $، “تفتقر إلى ما يصل إلى تاريخ المصالحات، والرقابة المالية الرئيسية.” مراجعو الحسابات حذر من نفس المشكلة في العام السابق، ولم يتم عمل الكثير عن ذلك. (تم خفض تراكم لثلاثة الحسابات النشطة قبل نشر تقرير مراجعي الحسابات.)
– على الرغم من تلك النفقات العامة، ما يقرب من ذهب ثلث الإنفاق المفوضية (667 مليون $) ل”الشركاء المنفذين”، بمعنى المنظمات غير الحكومية وغيرها الذين نفذوا عمليات الإغاثة. الذين كانوا جميعا، وإلى أي مدى يمكن أن تعمل، لم يكن واضحا على الإطلاق. عملية اختيار هؤلاء الشركاء، لاحظ مراجعو الحسابات، “يفتقر إلى الدقة والشفافية، مما يزيد من مخاطر الاحتيال والفساد وعدم الكفاءة وسوء الأداء شريك”.
–More من نصف الشركاء المنفذين عملت لمفوضية الأمم المتحدة لأكثر من خمس سنوات ومدققي الحسابات وجدت “أدلة تذكر على أي نوع من عملية اختيار تنافسية” مقارنة التكاليف أو مطابقة القدرات مع المتطلبات. وقال مجلس مراجعي الحسابات انها تشعر “بقلق خاص إزاء عدم الشفافية في عمليات اختيار شريك وزيادة مخاطر الاحتيال والفساد الذي يعرض هذه المفوضية.”
–however سيئة الشركاء – أو لتلك المسألة، العاملين المفوضية – – أجريت في هذا المجال، ومع ذلك، فإن مجلس مراجعي الحسابات لم يفكر بشدة قدرة الوكالة إلى الحكم عليها. “الأداء من شبكة بلاده لا تمكين الإدارة من إصدار الأحكام فعالة فيما يتعلق مردودية المشاريع والأنشطة أو لعقد المديرين المحليين للمساءلة عن الأداء”، كما يقول التقرير.
وفيما يتعلق بعملية المصالحة حساب مصرفي تنذر بالخطر، على سبيل المثال، وذكرت وكالة أنها قد فعلت الكثير، وأنه “الحسابات المصرفية التي عقدت في مقر والتوفيق تماما ويتم تسويتها بشكل روتيني على أساس شهري. واضاف” لكن هذا لا يشمل حسابات في هذا المجال، حيث المدققين حاسمة بشكل خاص من الهفوات الرقابة.
في معالجة ما تدعو المراجعين “أوجه القصور في الإدارة المالية قدرات المكاتب القطرية والتقارير”، ويقول المفوضية فإنه “مراجعة ذات الصلة التدقيق والتفتيش التقارير، والتشاور مع المقر الرئيسي والمكاتب وتستمر لتحليل البيانات … للتركيز على تلك المكاتب القطرية في تحتاج لمزيد من تعزيز ممارسات الإدارة المالية، وبناء على هذا الاستعراض والتحليل، ستقوم المفوضية وضع خطط عمل لمعالجة الثغرات التي تم تحديدها “. ويأمل أن تكون العملية تنتهي في نهاية هذا العام.
وعندما يتعلق الأمر باعتماد نهج “إدارة المخاطر” لشركائها في عمليات الإغاثة، كما أوصى مراجعو الحسابات، وتقول المفوضية إنها أولا يجب تبني “المتباينة المخاطر على أساس إطار “ومن ثم تطبيقه بشكل مناسب. مشاريع وكالة، murkily إلى حد ما، أن “تطبيق التنمية الشاملة في إطار سيكتمل بحلول عام 2014.”

كيف المفوضية نفسها تنوي التعامل مع المستنقع إدارة الواردة في تقرير مجلس مراجعي الحسابات؟
لا داعي للقلق، وفقا لإدارة الوكالة. في التقرير أن ما يقرب طالما التحقيق مدققي الحسابات وأوجز المفوضية في سبتمبر الماضي على قائمة طويلة من “التدابير المتخذة والمقترحة” لتحسين الأمور. بعض منهم، ومع ذلك، بدا غامضا، أو أقل من الجملة.
