Please find below a list of email addresses and URLs of sites that you can use to get assistance/guidance/info on a wide variety of issues, including assignments, payroll, travel, leave, training, etc.  For many kinds of admin questions, the Center for Administrative Innovation's "Ask Admin" (a knowledge base you can query) is often a good place to start.  The URL is http://askadmin.a.state.gov/.

 

The email addresses are all general email boxes.  I can't vouch for all of them, but I have used many of them and have been consistently pleased with the responsiveness of the people at the other end.
