What are the benefits for staff who perform transactional business processes in Umoja’s functional areas?

A. Umoja will free staff members from many routine clerical and administrative processes, enabling them to focus their time on strategic and substantive activities that will enable the Organization to better deliver on its mandates in the long-term. 

  • Technology management: consolidating major bespoke systems that are costly to maintain and cannot easily interact to a global solution which uses industry-leading technology to improve decision-making (legacy systems to be replaced over time include IMIS, SUN, Mercury, Procure+ and eventually Galileo)

  • Given that administrative processes will be standardized across Secretariat locations, staff who transfer to new duty stations will require less time to learn the local way of doing business

  • Umoja will provide opportunities for UN staff to improve their skillsets by preparing them to be proficient in the latest technologies.
