Dates of existence
The Department of Management provides guidance and support for human resource, central support services (covering such topics as archives, procurement, travel, and staff development), and finance and budget for the United Nations Secretariat. As of 2012, the Department of Management was going through a reform process, especially in regards to human resources, procurement, accountability, and accounting. This involves a Management Committee, a Management Performance Board, an Independent Audit Advisory Committee (IAAC), and an Ethics Office (established in 2005). The Ethics Office was "established to sustain an organizational culture based on accountability, integrity, and transparency", and includes a whistle blower protection policy, and policies against harassment. (DM publications, 11/11).
The department includes an Office of Programme Planning, Budget and Accounts, an Office of Human Resources Management, an Office of Central Support Services, and of 2005, the Capital Master Plan Project. The Under-Secretary-General from 1997-2002 was Joseph E. Connor, followed by Catherine Bertini (2003-2005), Christopher Bancroft Burnham (2005-2006), Alicia Bárcena Ibarra (2007), Angela Kane (2008-2012) and OIC Warren Sach (2012).
