The first hearing held in June was in response to a series of articles which occurred in the Washington Post. The subcommittees addressed issues of U.N. financial management practices, the political implications of allegations of financial problems in the U.N. system, and on U.S. participation in that body, and on ways of improving the U.N.'s accounting, auditing, and investment policies. [...] Today the subcommittees will examine the desirability of centralizing the U.N.'s financial management and accounting system and the effectiveness of the State Department's role in monitoring United Nation finances and means of improving the U.N.'s financial management system."
