Kofi Annan,

secretary general of the United Nations, in March proposed broad changes to the UN that included revamping the structure of the Security Council. Also in March, a committee investigating Iraq's oil-for-food program said Annan was not involved in the awarding of a $10 million contract to his son's employer, the Swiss company Cotecna Inspection. In its final report, released in September, the panel, headed by Paul Volcker, criticized Annan for not reining in corruption and management failures at the UN and for failing to investigate Kojo's potential conflicts of interest.
