As a result of the decision of the General Assembly to establish a new system of administration of justice, including a two-tier formal system comprising a first instance, the UN Dispute Tribunal, and an appellate instance, the UN Appeals Tribunal, the UN Administrative Tribunal was abolished as of 31 December 2009. (See resolutions 61/261 of 4 April 2007, 62/228 of 22 December 2007 and 63/253 of 24 December 2008.)

The United Nations Administrative Tribunal (UNAT) is the independent organ competent to hear and pass judgment upon applications alleging non-observance of contracts of employment of staff members of the United Nations Secretariat or of their terms of appointment as well as applications alleging non-observance of the regulations and rules of the UNJSPF, arising out of decisions by the Fund. The Tribunal was established by the General Assembly in its resolution 351 A(IV) of 24 November 1949. It is composed of seven members, no two of whom may be nationals of the same State. The members shall be appointed by the General Assembly for four years, and may be reappointed once.
