The staff transition plan tool is a web-based system developed by the Office of Human Resources (OHR/BMS) to enable RBx and COs to develop their Staff Transition Plan for clustering of Finance, HR and Procurement functions and OHR in preparation to support the transition.

UNDP is the knowledge frontier organization for sustainable development in the UN Development System and serves as the integrator for collective action to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With presence in 170 countries and territories, UNDP endeavors to help countries develop strong policies, skills, partnerships and institutions so they can sustain their progress. UNDP staff are united by a common purpose: to help countries and communities across the world pursue peaceful, prosperous lives, lived in harmony with the planet.
Drawing on the diversity of UNDP’s client needs and partnerships, the Office of Human Resources (OHR) is the hub for the global HR function for UNDP, providing strategy, policy setting, guidance and oversight. In addition, OHR provides a broad range of HR advisory and talent management services enabling UNDP to deliver fully integrated development solutions at corporate level. In this context, OHR is focused on the implementation of an ambitious and forward-looking three-year strategy, People for 2030, which will progressively transform UNDP’s culture and enable its workforce capacity to deliver more and better results.
The current staff transition plan tool was launched (go live) in November 2020 and have been used by COs, Regional Bureaus and OHR users for the ongoing staff transition plan exercise.
Based on the users’ feedback, recommendations for enhancement have been noted to make the system more productive, flexible and user friendly to maximize its benefits.
The enhancement requires competencies of an IT consultant who will work under the overall supervision of the OHR Deputy Director and the HR Analytics and Data Specialist.
