Review of DPA Follow-up to Evaluation Recommendations

2010: Contracted by OIOS, Urs Zollinger conducted a triennial review of the implementation of evaluation recommendations.

In 2006, the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) conducted several evaluations of the work of the UN Department for Political Affairs (DPA), which plays a central role in peace building and preventive diplomacy, and supports among many other things the work of the UN Security Council. In 2010, based on an inter-governmental decision, Urs Zollinger was asked to review and assess the extent to which DPA has implemented the evaluation recommendations. The review was well received by DPA management, and acknowledged for establishing a clear path to conclude unfinished business. Contact: Urs Zollinger
