The basic fee takes into account the amount of the contract and the current market rate for similar roles, as well as the living and hardness costs of the service concerned. In addition, elements such as the degree of specialization, complexity of tasks, training or experience beyond the minimum required may be taken into account. Fees are negotiated directly with each contractor, taking these factors into account in the pricing ranges applicable at each stage. Los honorarios de los ICA internacionales son competitivos y se fijan según diversos factores dentro de los diferentes rangos de remuneración que se establecen para cada nivel. Para calcular el salario base se tiene en cuenta el nivel del contrato y la tarifa de mercado actual para puestos similares, así como el costo de vida y las condiciones de vida difíciles de los lugares de destino. Asimismo, se pueden considerar aspectos como el grado de especialización, la complejidad de las tareas, la educación o la experiencia a mayores del mínimo exigido. Los honorarios se negocian directamente con el contratista individual y se tienen en cuenta dichos factores dentro de los rangos de remuneración aplicables a cada nivel. Within all these contracts, different steps apply. Basically, there are two broad categories. The first is the General Services category (sometimes called local) up to ICS 7, then the Professional (or International) category, which normally starts with ICS 8/9. The fundamental logic is that some jobs do not require international work. For example, it doesn`t really make sense to pay a lot of money to employ an administrator internationally, given that qualified people are usually available for this local job. If you have a national contract, you can expect to stay in the country and you don`t need to move.
If you are on an international contract, you can easily be assigned to any other place in the world (a fact that is often forgotten and regularly leads to conflicts when really trying to reshape the international dimension). Individual Contract Holders (AICs) are an essential resource for UNOPS and its partners. There are three types of ICA, depending on the scope of the functions and the workplace: ICA International, ICA field specialist and ICA local assistance. Depending on institutional needs, availability of resources and satisfactory execution of the individual, individual contractors may work for UNOPS on short-term contracts (up to one hour or at least three months) or with long-term full-time contracts with no specific deadline. The Young Associate Experts (JPO) programme offers young professionals wishing to embark on an international career the opportunity to gain practical experience within a United Nations entity. . . .
