SEA/RC67/6 - Programme Budget Performance Assessment: 2012–2013
AbstractThe 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.
