Matters relating to the Joint Inspection Unit (JIU): Reports of the JIU

This paper summarizes the annual report of the JIU for 2016, its programme of work for 2017 and six reports published in 2015 and 2016 on the following United Nations (UN) system-wide issues: public information and communications policies and practices; organizational ombudsman services; succession planning; fraud prevention, detection and response; contribution to strengthening national capacities for statistical analysis and data collection to support the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and other internationally agreed goals; and United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), with a particular focus on poverty eradication. The Governing Body is invited to provide guidance on the information contained in this document and on any of the recommendations addressed to the ILO in those six JIU reports, as well as on the status of follow-up to the recommendations presented to the Governing Body in the past three years (see the proposed point for discussion in paragraph 23).
