The present note by the Secretary-General transmits to the General Assembly the statistical report of the United Nations System Chief Executives Board for Coordination on the budgetary and financial situation of the organizations of the United Nations system, the only system-wide report on these statistics. Until 1991, the report, in a slightly modified format, was produced by the Advisory Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions and was included in its annual reports on administrative and budgetary coordination of the United Nations with the specialized agencies and the International Atomic Energy Agency. Since 1991, six biennial reports have been produced under the auspices of the Administrative Committee on Coordination. The present, eleventh report, is the fifth to be presented by the United Nations System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB). The format and content of the tables were slightly revised and improved for the previous report (A/63/185) on the basis of comments and suggestions from the Fifth Committee of the General Assembly during the presentation of the report in November 2006 (A/61/203 and Corr.1) and following extensive consultations within the CEB High-level Committee on Management. In particular, the tables on extrabudgetary resources were expanded to provide a complete picture of the resources available to the organizations of the United Nations system from all sources. The same structure has been followed for the tables in the present report.

All tables and data published in the present report, including some analysis of the figures presented, a number of charts on trends across recent years and snapshots on the distribution of extrabudgetary resources by country and by organization, are available on the website of the CEB secretariat (www.unsceb.org).
