Below you can find some information on the contractual conditions of professionals
engaged on consultancy contracts:
Professionals can be engaged as either consultants or individual contractors:
Consultant: a person whose services are required on a short-term basis to provide
outside expertise, special skills or knowledge not available from regular staff of
UNFCCC and for which there is no continuing need in UNFCCC.
Individual contractor: a person whose services are required on a short-term basis
to provide support services which could normally be performed by regular staff within
a certain time frame and for which there is no continuing need in UNFCCC.
Consultants and Individual contractors serve in their individual capacity as independent
contractors and not as representatives of a government or of any other authority
including UNFCCC. They shall not be regarded as a "staff member" of UNFCCC, under the
United Nations Staff Regulations and Rules, or an "official" of UNFCCC, for purposes
of the Convention on the Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations, adopted by
the General Assembly of the United Nations on 13 February 1946.
Profiles registered in the database will remain active for a period of 12 months.
Whenever relevant opportunities arise, potential candidates with the required expertise
will be identified and contacted.
Fees are based on the type of assignment, complexity, extent and degree of expertise
required, as well as the consultant’s relevant education and relevant experience.
An overview of the level, degree of expertise and years of experience used to
determine the fee is displayed below:

The organization reserves the right to establish fees according to the work performed.
UNFCCC shall have no liability for taxes, duties or other similar charges payable by
the Contractor in respect of any amounts paid to the Contractor under the Contract,
and the Contractor acknowledges that UNFCCC will not issue any statements of earnings
to the Contractor in respect of any such payments.
Payment fees can be set as output-based, monthly, weekly or daily. Detailed information
on the fee shall be agreed in the contract.
