Do I need to take any action in Umoja (or otherwise) for a work event, such as changing jobs?

You do not need to take any actions in Umoja when you change jobs within the same duty station. You will receive notifications about actions taken in Umoja by the offices involved. You receive a movement notification when your selection is finalized and the release date is determined. The notification is also sent to the Manager of the releasing office, and to the Receiving and Releasing HR Partners. If your change in job means moving to a different duty station, you will receive the notifications that tell you to take the necessary actions for shipment, travel, and the allowances related to the movement. Note: Starting 1 July 2014, Umoja will start to be deployed at various duty stations. If Umoja has not yet been deployed where you are located then you must follow the procedures currently in place.
