The Board approves the Charter of the Office of the Inspector General, attached as Annex 5 to the Report of the Finance and Audit Committee (GF/B13/9) with the addition of a reference to the Administrative Services Agreement with the World Health Organization (WHO).

There are no material budgetary implications for this decision.
