RCU staff members trained for Umoja

Since 1 June 2015, new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, called “Umoja”, has been in place for UNEP and other UN agencies. Umoja is an administrative reform initiative designed to help UN operate more effectively by integrating and streamlining business processes that manage financial, human and physical resources within a single global solution for the entire UN system. In order to prepare for the transition to the new system, one RCU staff member went to Nairobi for a 3-week training while other staff members got relevant training courses online. Staff members now are able to perform basic functions on the system after numerous consultations with Umoja help team fixing the access problems encountered. During the transition to Umoja, some business transactions in NOWPAP have been affected.
