SEA/RC67/7 - Implementation of Programme Budget 2014–2015
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 2014-07-28 )
Abstract

The approved Programme Budget for the WHO South-East Asia Region for the period 2014–2015 is US$ 340 million, and the revised budget is US$ 344.5 million. Operational budget as per approved workplans is US$ 329.6 million. Total resources available for the period are US$ 193.5 million; implementation (expenditure), including payroll costs up to May 2014, stands at US$ 43.1 million, which is 13% of the Budget and 22% of the resources. Funds utilization (encumbrances plus expenditure) stands at US$ 74 million. This working paper also discusses the problem of uneven distribution of resources that persists in many Member States as well as across technical areas. Countries such as Bangladesh and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have, at this point in time, mobilized resources close to 75% of their budgeted figures, whereas Nepal, Thailand and Bhutan, for example, have currently only managed to mobilize funds to support around 50% of their budgets. The distribution of funds to Categories and programme areas continues to be uneven. While Categories 4, 5 & 6 have already received funds to the tune of more than 60% of their budgets, Category 1 and 2 have received around 55%. The Seventh Meeting of the Subcommittee on Policy and Programme Development and Management (SPPDM), held in New Delhi, India, on 18 July 2014 reviwed the attached document and made the following recommendations: Action by Member States (1) Member States were requested to coordinate with the country offices to achieve regional implementation targets of 75% of the activity budget by 31 December 2014. Action by the WHO Regional Office (1) The Secretariat would revise the implementation report both in format and with updated data, both regional as well as global comparisons, and present the same to the inter-sessional meeting proposed to be held in August 2014. The background document and recommendations of the SPPDM meeting are submitted to the Sixty-seventh Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration

SEA/RC67/6 - Programme Budget Performance Assessment: 2012–2013
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 2014-08-01 )
Abstract

The Organization-wide report on the 2012–2013 Programme Budget Performance Assessment (PBPA) was submitted to the Sixty-seventh World Health Assembly in May 2014 (SEA/SPPDM-Meet.7/2.1 Inf. Doc. 1 – Document A67/42) after it was initially reviewed at the Twentieth Meeting of the Programme Budget and Administration Committee (PBAC) of the Executive Board. The PBAC, in its report to the World Health Assembly (SEA/SPPDM-Meet.7/2.1 Inf. Doc. 2 – Document A67/55) welcomed the 2012–2013 PBPA report contained in document A67/42 and highlighted the improvement in the level of fully achieved Organization-wide expected results (OWERs), which had increased from 54% during the 2010–2011 biennium to 63% during the 2012–2013 biennium. The Committee also noted the improvement in the level and alignment of financing of the Strategic Objectives (SO) in the major offices. However, it observed that full financial alignment has not yet been achieved. The attached document provides a summary of the findings of the 2012–2013 PBPA exercise as conducted in the WHO South-East Asia Region. The summary document includes an overview of key achievements recorded during the biennium, WHO’s contributions to these achievements, and an assessment of the degree of achievement of expected results in the WHO South-East Asia Region. The Seventh Meeting of the Subcommittee on Policy and Programme Development and Management (SPPDM), held in New Delhi, India, on 18 July 2014 reviewed the document and made the following recommendation: Action by the WHO Regional Office (1) To revise the working paper to include: information on the factors that facilitated mobilization of more resources than the Programme Budget in some other regions but not in the South-East Asia Region; further information on Office-specific expected results (OSERs) that were “partly achieved or not achieved”, and the reasons thereof; OWERs that were linked with 50% of the total implementation as of May 2013; and Budget Centre-wise and SO-wise financial implementation details; and submit to the Sixty-seventh Session of the Regional Committee for discussion. The revised background document and recommendation of the SPPDM are submitted to the Sixty-seventh Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.

The Joint Coordinating Board (JCB) of the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases Research (TDR) acts as the governing body of the Special Programme and is responsible for its overall policy and strategy.
