Developmental Assignment - Extend


The duration of a developmental assignment (DA) is more than 90 calendar days but less than 12 months. An extension of 12 months may be granted by the releasing manager or his/her designee. However, the maximum duration of a DA is 24 months.

This checklist applies to:

  • DA within HQ and CO
  • DA transitioned to GMSF
  • DA initiated after January 1, 2016


  • For old DA (from HQ to CO, CO to CO, CO to HQ) initiated prior to January 1, 2016 and has not been transitioned to GMSF, the system will display an error message when the manager or designee tries to extend via myHR Self-Service.
  • Instruct your HR Business Partner (HRBP) to email the GMSF Assignment Request template (access limited to HRBPs only) and write to HR Operations with a cc to Global Mobility, with the subject line "UPI ___, GMSF Assignment".
  • Once the old DA (from HQ to CO, CO to CO, CO to HQ) is transitioned to GMSF DA, the manager or designee can extend the DA via myHR Self-Service following the actions below.

For details on policy, refer to section 01 on Staff Rule 06.23. For important considerations relating to G4 visa holders, refer to Absence from the U.S.




Action by Receiving Manager


Discuss the extension details with the staff member and the releasing manager, and complete the following:

  • TOR in collaboration with the responsible HR manager or designee
  • T200011 STA/DA Memorandum of Agreement; signatures are required if all concur with the terms and conditions


It is mandatory to complete an updated STA/DA Memorandum of Agreement when extending a staff member’s STA/DA. Failure to submit an updated STA/DA memo will result in delay of STA/DA allowances disbursement.

o  For IBRD staff, work with Ruth Adhana on the updated STA/DA memo.

o  For IFC staff, work with your budget analyst or finance officer from your unit on the updated STA/DA memo.

  • Re-entry Guarantee/Next Assignment arrangements


Submit the ‘Developmental Assignment – Extend’ action in myHR Self-Service.

While completing the action, upload the updated T200011 STA/DA Memorandum of Agreement and TOR.


  • A manager may delegate the preparation of an action to a drafter. However, any action prepared by a drafter requires the manager's approval.
