Board Decisions

GF/B13/DP09


Approved by the Board on:
28 April 2006


Follow-up to the Internal Oversight Services Report

The Board endorses the findings of the ad hoc Oversight Committee with respect to:

(a) the management action plan prepared in response to the report of the WHO Office of Internal Oversight Services (the "IOS Report"); and

(b) work carried out to date by the Global Fund's Deputy Executive Director and the Legal Counsel with respect to determination of accountability for adverse findings described in the IOS Report and the protection of whistleblowers.

The Board accordingly dissolves the ad hoc Oversight Committee and requests the Secretariat to continue to carry out the processes referred to in points (a) and (b) of this decision, with continued attention to the protection of whistleblowers. The Board requests the Inspector General to continue to oversee the work of the Secretariat in this area and report back to the Board as part of his normal periodic reports to the Board.
