Business Transformation and Accountability Division (BTAD)

The United Nations Secretary-General has called for an ambitious reform of the Secretariat to transform it into a nimbler organization that is more responsive. Fundamental to this change is a culture of transparency and accountability. A new dedicated capacity in business transformation and accountability (BTAD) brings together various functions dedicated to monitoring and strengthening performance and accountability across the Organization.
