The Office of Management (OM) provides administrative and programme support, and is structured in two units: Finance, Quality Assurance, Information and Support (FQAIS), and Resources Management (RM). Through these two units, the Office of Management coordinates and controls the agency’s finances, resources, and administration, as well as its business processes, quality assurance, monitoring, and reporting.

The OM also works closely with the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON) on issues of financial management and control, human resource management and administration, business guidelines and processes, and project and administrative services for regional and field offices.

The overall objective of the programme support component is to strengthen organizational accountability, financial resources, and systems management for the effective delivery of work.

The OM ensures the efficient and transparent allocation of the human and financial resources of the organization and other assets to meet its operational priorities. It also promotes transparent financial management, effective reporting, and strong financial accountability and governance, in compliance with the UN’s financial and administrative rules and regulations.
