Temporary Restriction on External Access to UNICEF’s Archives 30 Aug 2016

The below message was sent to all UNICEF staff in August. It helps to clarify the status and progress on one of the main issues that former staff and other UNICEF supporters have repeatedly identified as having high relevance/ importance.

“As part of its mandate, the ITSS-led Enterprise Content Management (ECM) project, is reviewing the archival paper records held in the offsite … storage facility, and the digitized archival records retained in the TRIM system.  
 
As a result, access to all archival records by external bodies (persons and organizations outside of UNICEF, including the UN agencies) is restricted, until further notice. 
 
The purpose of the review is to ensure: 
·         sensitive information is not released but made accessible to explicitly authorized personnel;  
·         archival records are properly preserved and conserved; and, 
·         UNICEF has fully accounted for, and can track, all archival records. 
 
Any UNICEF staff and consultants who wish to access archival records, may request access by emailing Carrie Stevenson, Senior Project Manager of ECM, or Pat Batra, Chief of Travel & General Services. 
  
If you require any clarification, please email Carrie Stevenson: cstevenson (at) unicef.org. 
  
Thank-you.

About adhiratha

I joined the UN Secretariat in 1973 and UNICEF in 1974. During 2005-2006 I was on loan from UNICEF to UN Secretariat for special projects and between 2007 to 2010 was a consultant specialist for UNFPA. Have also been consultant or unpaid volunteer for various NGO's . My fathers favorite quote from Sri Chinmoy was : "There is only one perfect road and that road is ahead of you ,, Always Ahead of you...". Association with organizations that seek to implement the UN Charters goal of practical "oneness" feels like an inner connection or reality that is not time or position bound.
