UN REFORM PAKISTAN - SYNOPSIS AS OF OCTOBER 2007 Progress continued in July, August and September at differing rates in the 7 Working Groups of OMT. A decision was taken for Working Groups to formally all meet once a month for half a day to share information, progress and elicit assistance and/or clarification where needed. OMT decided to meet twice a month – with one OMT meeting per month dedicated to UN Reform matters and decisions. OMT information overload overcome through use of Common Services Website, i.e. documents for review, information requests, reference documents are now loaded up weekly with an e-bulletin issued to all Working Group members.
