The Government closely scrutinise UN activity and expenditure and requests for funding. This is done in a number of ways, including through active participation by the UK in the Fifth Committee (Budget/Administration) of the UN General Assembly.
Budget issues are also examined by the UN Advisory Committee for Administrative and Budgetary Questions. This is made up of independent experts, currently including one expert from the UK. Other bodies play a vital oversight role, particularly the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services and the UN Board of Auditors, on which the UK National Audit Office currently sits.
