New Challenges for the Secretariat

The Secretariat continues to be sensitive to the changing priorities and developmental needs of member governments, especially as outlined at CHOGMs and various ministerial meetings. Since 1 July 1993, the Secretariat has organised its work within the framework of a three-year strategic plan approved by the Steering Committee of Senior Officials (SCOSO). This Committee, which now meets once in three years, provides broad operational and resource allocation guidance, and strategic direction to the Secretariat's work.
