What will Umoja do for the UN?

UN staff will not just be learning a new system, but more effective and efficient ways to work. Staff members will be freed from repetitive and redundant tasks, enabling them to devote their energies to providing value-added services. In addition, staff will be able to update personal information, complete benefits enrollment, view leave balances, submit travel requests and expenses, and check payments – all online.

The Umoja solution will:

  • Provide all Secretariat offices with an integrated transactional system.

  • Replace or integrate numerous existing legacy systems such as IMIS, Mercury and Sun.

  • Reduce time and resources spent on manual, paper-based processes.

  • Increase time and resources directed toward programmes that make a difference in the lives of UN beneficiaries.

  • Equip UN staff with modern technology and enhanced skills.
