The standing open-ended intergovernmental working group on improving the governance and financial situation of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime was established in 2009 by the Economic and Social Council in its decision 2009/251. Its terms of reference are contained in Commission on Narcotic Drugs resolution 52/13 and Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice  resolution 18/3.

At its general segment in July 2015, the Economic and Social Council adopted decision 2015/234 put forward by the Commission on Narcotic Drugs at its 58th session and the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice at its 24th session to renew the mandate of the working group until the first half of 2017. Recommendations on the future work of the group are contained in Commission on Narcotic Drugs resolution 58/1 and Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice resolution 24/1.

The working group deals with the consolidated budget of UNODC for the current biennium, evaluation and oversight, and other governance and financial matters, including the progress made by UNODC in implementing its regional and thematic programmes.
