The Organizational Committee’s mandate was to ensure the most effective organization of the work of ACC and its subsidiary bodies.  The Committee monitored developments and trends in the international environment for critical issues that required coordinated and complementary responses by the UN system.  The Committee organized ACC sessions, oversaw the preparation of documentation, assisted in monitoring the work of its subsidiary machinery and took decisions on behalf of the ACC on issues that were not political or related to policy. 

The Organization Committee met twice a year, two to three weeks before the ACC session and immediately following it and had the following committees reporting to it:

  • Joint United Nations Information Committee (JUNIC)
  • Information Systems Coordination Committee (ISCC)
  • Ad Hoc Inter-Agency Meeting on Security

The functions previously performed by the OC are now carried out by a network of focal points (Sherpas) along with the High-Level Committee on Programmes and the CEB Secretariat.
