This paper summarizes the annual report of the Joint Inspection Unit (JIU) for 2018 and its programme of work for 2019, and seven reports published in 2017 and 2018 on the following United Nations (UN) system-wide issues: donor reporting requirements; UN system – Private sector partnership in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; mechanisms and policies addressing conflict of interest; internship programmes; whistle-blower policies and practices; efficiency and effectiveness in administrative support services; and accessibility for persons with disabilities to conferences and meetings of the UN system. The Governing Body is invited to provide guidance on the information contained in this document and on any of the recommendations addressed to the ILO in those seven JIU reports, as well as on the status of the follow-up to the recommendations presented to the Governing Body in the past three years (see the draft outcome in paragraph 28).
