This is the page where you logon to the eReassign application.
  • Employees:
  • Employees, Selecting and Higher Level Officials (assigned by HR), and Supervisors log on using their Employee Identification Number (EID) and their USPS Password.
Welcome Page

The Welcome Page is the main menu of eReassign. It serves as the "home page" for the application. You can get to it from other pages by clicking on the "Welcome" hyperlink located in the header and footer of each screen.

The Welcome Page displays a list of options providing access to different functions of eReassign. The options displayed are dependent on your user type.

    This section is displayed to bargaining unit employees only.

  • Search Request
  • This section provides the ability to search for requests based on user specified criteria.
  • A button is provided to access the Request Search page. Results are limited to requests that the user has submitted or reviewed.

  • You are able to view a list of Reassignment Coordinators and all Administrative users are able to change their password. Human Resource and Selecting Official users are also able to Setup their contact information and Print a blank reassignment request form to send to employees.

Submit Request Page

This page allows you to submit a request for reassignment. HR/SO Users submitting a request on behalf of an employee use the Employee Lookup page to locate the employee. Once the employee has been selected, the employee's information is populated on the Submission form.

The first section is your home contact information. This information will populate for you based on your official employee data. This information can be changed to reflect the address at which you wish to receive information regarding this reassignment, but does not update your official address on file. You should use the standard process to assure that your address of record is correct. You may also provide a phone number and email address.

The second section displays your current information, such as bid cluster, position, and address. This information is also populated for you based on your official employee data. Employees are required to enter their supervisor's name and phone number so he or she may be contacted to provide an evaluation.

Next you may supply additional information, such as driver's license information, that will assist Human Resources in compiling necessary employee data. A valid driver's license is required for all carrier craft positions and motor vehicle craft positions. The Driving Disqualifications checkbox is required for all requests. The table of Driving Disqualifications can be viewed through a link in this section.

The main content of the Submission form is contained in the section in which you are able to choose the district, bid cluster, and craft(s) to which you wish to reassign.

If an employee is being excessed, a message displays below the district-drop down box indicating that this employee has priority status. The submission is limited to Clerk Craft, Maintenance Craft, Motor Vehicle Craft and Material Support Craft (APWU) or any combination of these in order to obtain priority status for the request. A separate (non-priority) request must be submitted for City Carrier and/or Mail Handler crafts (non-APWU). Mixing of APWU and non-APWU crafts within a single request is prevented by the system while an employee is being excessed.

Each request may only contain up to 5 craft combinations. If you are interested in more than one post bid cluster, you must submit separate requests. You may either use the dropdown lists that are provided or make your selection using the state map. Using the state map allows you to choose an bid cluster and craft by clicking on each state to reveal the districts in that state. HR/SO Users submitting on behalf of an employee are only able to submit requests using the dropdown option. HR/SO Users are restricted to submitting requests to their own district and bid cluster scopes.

Once you have selected your bid cluster and crafts, you must read the conditions contained in the Privacy Act statement before you submit the request.

There are three buttons at the bottom of the page:

  • Save Draft
  • If you are not finished with your request and wish to return at a later time to complete it, click the Save Draft button. You are able to get back to this Draft request from your Welcome Page. Draft requests are only saved for 30 days. Any draft requests older than 30 days will be deleted from eReassign.

  • Delete Draft
  • If you do not wish to continue drafting the request and wish to delete it, click the Delete Draft button.

  • Submit Request
  • Once you are finished completing the request and you feel it is ready to be submitted, click the Submit button. eReassign will then check the request to make sure all the proper fields have been entered. If there are problems, eReassign will give you error messages at the top of the page letting you know what you have to change before you can submit the request. If all the fields were entered properly, you will be taken to a confirmation page.


The Confirmation Page displays the basic information contained in your request. For an employee being excessed, if a request meets the criteria for priority status, a modified confirmation page will be displayed indicating that the request has received priority status and will maintain priority status until the last day of the voluntary transfer period (EPTD), as specified in the letter.

Please verify the information and print out the Confirmation Page if you wish.
