Conditons of Service or ntenational Specalst::

The contract lasts for the period indicated above with possibility of extensions subject to availability of

funding, operational necessity and satisfactory performance. However, there is no expectation of renewal

of the assignment.

A UN Volunteer receives a Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) which is composed of the Monthly Living

Allowance (MLA) and a Family Allowance (FA) for those with dependents (maximum three).

The Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) is paid at the end of each month to cover housing, utilities,

transportation, communications and other basic needs. The VLA can be computed by applying the Post-

Adjustment Multiplier (PAM) to the VLA base rate of US$ 1,602. The VLA base rate is a global rate across

the world, while the PAM is duty station/country-specific and fluctuates on a monthly basis according to

the cost of living. This method ensures that international UN Volunteers have comparable purchasing

power at all duty stations irrespective of varying costs of living. The PAM is established by the

International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) and is published at the beginning of every month on the

ICSC website

For UN Volunteer entitlements, kindly refer to the link

In non-family duty stations that belong to hardship categories D or E, as classified by the ICSC,

international UN Volunteers receive a Well-Being Differential (WBD) on a monthly basis.

29 Nov 2018 Page 5 of 7Furthermore, UN Volunteers are provided a settling-in-grant (SIG) at the start of the assignment (if the volunteer did not reside in the duty station for at least 6 months prior to taking up the assignment) and in

the event of a permanent reassignment to another duty station.

UNV provides life, health, permanent disability insurances as well as assignment travel, annual leave, full

integration in the UN security framework (including residential security reimbursements).

UN Volunteers are paid Daily Subsistence Allowance at the UN rate for official travels, flight tickets for

periodic home visit and for the final repatriation travel (if applicable). Resettlement allowance is paid for

satisfactory service at the end of the assignment.
