How to Bid Assignments and Routes on USPS LiteBlue
The LiteBlue Route / Bid Assignments Process:
The postal employee’s request or ‘bid’ for a posting is submitted to HRSSC the employee’s district rural analyst. The district will be the recipient of all correspondence from HRSSC regarding the bid, which is then forwarded to the rural unit.
The LiteBlue bidding process is, now, entirely automated, from the creation of the route posting to the award (which is given by seniority) and then ultimately to the necessary personnel actions. HRSSC relies upon the local office to review all documents, for accuracy and omissions, prior to any action being taken.
To bid on a posted assignment / route through the USPS LiteBlue website you will need your employee ID and PIN.
1) Visit LiteBlue (www.liteblue.usps.gov) and enter PIN and Employee ID Number where indicated.
2) Click on “My HR” button along the top row.
3) In the right column under the “I Am” section select “A Craft Employee”
This will take you to the USPS LiteBlue bidding page
4) Click ‘Enter Job Bids”
5) Select the “Posting Number” that you would like to bid.
If you are bidding more than one assignment you should indicate your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice, etc.
Enter your preference in the ‘Choice’ column.
All job bidding through the USPS today is done through LiteBlue or by telephone. The system, which is available 24/7 is called ‘eJobBidding.’ The automated is user friendly and provides instructions to help the user navigate the site and bidding process.
