Congratulations to Sis Commissioner Grace Pulido Tan (Eta 1973). Per our UP WILOCI group FB, she just got appointed to the IAAC (Independent Audit Advisory Committee), a United Nations Body. Proud and happy for you Mam sis!


18 December 2013 – The United Nations has appointed the Philippines’ Chairperson of the Commission on Audit Ms. Maria Gracia Pulido Tan to the Independent Audit Advisory Committee (IAAC), a subsidiary body of the General Assembly (GA) mandated to assist the GA in its oversight responsibilities.

The appointment makes Chairperson Pulido Tan the first Filipino to serve in the five-person IAAC since its establishment in 2007. Chairperson Pulido Tan will serve a three-year term of office beginning on January 01, 2014.

The Fifth Committee of the General Assembly, chaired by Deputy Permanent Representative of Finland to the United Nations Janne Taalas, decided during its 24thsession today to appoint Chairperson Tan to the position after noting her nomination by the Government of the Philipines’ as well as the Asia-Pacific Group’s endorsement of Chairperson Tan’s nomination.

The Philippines’ Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Libran N. Cabactulan, welcomed the appointment saying it was “proof positive of the confidence placed by the international community in the experience and expertise of nominees from the Philippines.”

“Chairperson Pulido Tan will bring to the Committee her wide-ranging experiences and deep expertise which will certainly help the IAAC in the fulfillment of its mandate,” Ambassador Cabactulan added.

The Committee is responsible for advising the General Assembly on the scope, results and effectiveness of audit and other oversight functions, especially the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS); on measures to ensure management’s compliance with audit and other oversight recommendations; and on various risk management, internal control, operational and accounting and disclosure issues.
