Reference Committees

The General Assembly (GA) may appoint Reference Committees to expedite the work of the GA and to allow for in-depth debate between meetings on issues such as finances, budget, and contentious matters. The Reference Committees consist of up to five delegates of the General Assembly who serve only for the duration of a regular or special meeting in that year.

Budget Reference Committee

The Budget Reference Committee considers issues raised by the General Assembly delegates regarding the budget. The Committee may suggest improvements to the budget process and to the presentation of financial information, and it gives recommendations to the General Assembly on adopting the next year’s budget.
