HLCM considered follow-up to the recommendation in the Summit Outcome for a review of governance and oversight mechanisms within the United Nations system. It agreed that inputs into the external study being conducted in response to the request of the Summit and overseen by the steering committee established by the Secretary-General would distinguish between issues of governance, which would cover only the United Nations and its funds and programmes, and auditing, investigation and related oversight functions, which would cover the United Nations specialized agencies as well. HLCM also established an ad hoc group to interact with the steering committee.
