The Department of Management (DM) supports the day-to-day operations of the United Nations Secretariat.

The department was first established as the Department of Administrative and Financial Services. It was discontinued in this form in 1954 (see A/2554). It was re-established as the Department of Administration and Management through the merger of the Office of the Controller and the Office of Personnel in 1968 (see A/C.5/1128) and renamed the Department of Administration, Finance and Management in 1979. The name was changed to the Department of Administration and Management in 1982 before it became the Department of Management in 1997.
