A/59/446 54. The Advisory Committee welcomes the emphasis placed on promoting the mobility of staff in the P-3 to D-2 levels. The Committee has consistently supported the concept of increased mobility as a means to develop a more flexible and multi-skilled workforce. The Committee recalls that the General Assembly, in section III.D, paragraph 6, of its resolution 51/226, requested the Secretary-General to pursue the development and implementation of the managed reassignment programmes for entry level and other staff as outlined in his report on the implementation of his strategy (A/C.5/51/1, paras. 29-31) and to budget the required posts accordingly.

55. The Advisory Committee points out that this is to be a gradual approach (see A/59/263, para. 82), which is consistent with the obligations staff assume when joining the United Nations. Nonetheless, 2007 will mark a qualitative, as well as a quantitative, change in the United Nations reassignment programme. In this connection, the Committee notes that the General Assembly exercises legislative oversight over all personnel matters. The Committee also notes that the Assembly, in section II, paragraph 53 of its resolution 57/305, requested the Secretary-General to closely monitor mobility and to submit proposals to the Assembly for consideration at its fifty-ninth session, in order to solve any problems resulting from increased staff mobility.

56. The Advisory Committee requests the Secretary-General, in his next report on human resources management, to continue to report on the concerns raised by the Assembly in its resolutions 51/226, 53/221, 55/258 and 57/305, and to address the financial implications of the reassignment programme. In particular, the Committee points to the considerations expressed in section II, paragraphs 49 and 52, of resolution 57/305 and section V, paragraphs 1 to 8, of resolution 55/258, especially as regards the need to take steps to ensure that mobility will not be used as an instrument of coercion against staff, the need to recognize the difference between movement within a duty station and mobility across duty stations, and the need to ensure that lateral mobility does not negatively affect the continuity and quality of the services required for the implementation of mandated programmes and activities.

57. The Advisory Committee also reiterates its view that staff members requested by the Organization to remain on mission assignment, whatever the period of time, should be guaranteed the ability to return to a job in their occupational network and duty station (see A/55/499, para. 14).
