This note presented by the Secretariat at the fourth session of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption addresses resource requirements for the functioning of the mechanism for the review of implementation of the Convention.
This report by the Secretariat consists of budgetary information on resources received by the Conference for the biennium 2010-2011, both from the regular budget and from voluntary contributions. Also reported are expenditures incurred and expected to be incurred based on the experience of the first year of operation of the Mechanism for the Review of Implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption. Resource requirements for the biennium 2012-2013 are also reported. In reporting actual expenditures for the first year of functioning of the Mechanism, not all country reviews of the first year had been finalized, so the costs of the various budgetary items are based on estimates that take into account average costs from the completed reviews. Both original and revised estimates are reported for the first year of the Review Mechanism (biennium 2010-2011). The total for the original estimate was $2,754,500, and the total for the revised estimate was $2,841,700. The total regular budget proposal for biennium 2012-2013 totaled 3,453,000 for the regular budget. The report concludes with recommendations for funding the overall requirements for the biennium 2012-2013. Due to the difficulties experienced in raising the additional resources required for operating the Review Mechanism in the biennium 2010-2011, one recommendation is that the budgetary requirements of the Mechanism and its Secretariat be funded from the regular budget of the United Nations. 17 tables
