Background Information – Office of Information and Communications Technology (OICT) / Unite Service Desk in Bangkok (USD-BKK)

The United Nations Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Strategy (A/69/517) is an ambitious road map to transform ICT across the UN Secretariat. Successful implementation will lead to enhanced overall effectiveness and improved efficiency. Help desks are a critical organizational resource, therefore, the Office of Information and Communications Technology (OICT) is leading the way in transforming them into a more efficient global shared-service model.

Since 2014, the global Unite Service Desk provides around-the-clock support for key UN applications such as Umoja, iNeed, Unite Connections, Unite Docs, Unite Identity, Inspira, UN Careers, Contingent-Owned Equipment System (eCOE), Electronic Fuel Management System (eFMS-2), Citrix, EarthMed, UN Examinations and Tests system, DSS Portal and DSS Training Portal. Unite Service Desk is handling more than 140,000 service requests per year.

Organized as a virtual service desk with teams in Bangkok, Nairobi, Geneva and New York, the Unite Service Desk provides a single point of contact (e.g., online forms, generic email address and hotline) to UN personnel and also to users who do not work for the UN.
