United Nations Office for Streamlined Document Generation (UNOSDG)
The United Nations system consists of several hundred organisations, institutes, missions, commissions, agencies, conferences, offices, courts, authorities, departments, funds, boards, fora, operations, universities, colleges, high commissioners and other entities. Each produces voluminous documentation on a continual basis in the form of resolutions, mandates, communiques, studies, declarations, papers and statements. The hitherto lack of a standardised, optimised process for generating this documentation employing appropriate automisation has placed a crippling burden upon the shoulders of the tens of thousands of bureaucrats, commissars, secretaries, consultants and research fellows whose job it is to produce this material.
The United Nations Office for Streamlined Document Generation (UNOSDG) was created to address this need by the United Nations Worgroup on Autogeneration of Non-Technical English Documentation (UNWANTED), a multy-agency taskforce of representatives from entities across the breadth of the UN System. This website provides a growing electronic documentation-authoring suite of applications to streamline the generatation of an ever-increasing variety of common UN texts. It is provided for the use of staff in every UN agency across the world. Never again will an overburdened UN bureaucrat labour long into the night trying desperately to dredge up another synonym for "stakeholders". This suite will do that for you. Any marginal deficit in the applicability of the documentation generated by this site relative to that previously authored by real-life human beings is vanishingly slight, and of no possible consequence to the real world.
Our work is based on three fundamental pillars:
- Timeliness: the average document takes 0.25 seconds to generate, a slight improvement over historical UN-wide performance;
- Cost-effectiveness: by minimising the amount of resources allocated to bureaucratic processes; and
- True representativeness of the views of the world's citizenry: according to the Holistic Democratic Representation Hypothesis (HDRH).
