With regard to hiring, remunerating and evaluating the performance of consultants and individual contractors, the Board of Auditors reiterated its observation that some departments or entities (Department for General Assembly and Conference Management, Department of Political Affairs and ECLAC) do not adhere to administrative instructions .

The Committee points out that the delayed signing of contracts is also an issue with other entities, such as UNEP . The Committee agrees with the Board that all funds and programmes should ensure that contracts are signed in a timely manner. The Committee trusts that the Board will follow up on the matter. With regard to consultants specializing in training, the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) clarified in response to a recommendation by the Board that UNSSC had established a consultant data base (www.unssc.org/cr) for system-wide use . The Committee notes that the main page of the website indicates that, as at 20 September 2005, 585 consultants and a total of 38 agencies were registered. UNSSC indicated in its response to the Board that United Nations Headquarters seem not to be aware of the database. The Committee points out that, since UNSSC has developed the database, it would be the Collegeâ€™s responsibility to inform potential users of its existence, in particular in view of the fact that the database requires user registration and permission.||2005|
