CONSULTANTS AND PSA SUBSCRIBERS

(CATEGORIES, CONTRACT DURATION AND HONORARIA) 

CONSULTANTS

Consultants hold the status of “official” of the Organization and they represent the Organization externally.

A Consultant is generally engaged to perform functions for which FAO has a temporary but not continuous need. They are recruited to perform functions of an advisory or consultative nature, for which they have the requisite academic background and/or relevant work experience.  

In all cases, Consultants must meet minimum relevant qualifications and language proficiency standards similar to those of professional positions: Advanced University Degree and working knowledge of one of the FAO languages (English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian) and limited knowledge of a second FAO language.

Levels

There are three different categories of Consultants based on the number of years of professional experience requested:

C-Base level

The C-level Consultant is typically employed for assignments requiring from one to four years of relevant experience post graduation.

The assignment requires basic professional inputs such as descriptive or analytical assignments, identifying problems etc., with their role ending at the analytical and descriptive level. The Consultant is expected to have good familiarity with the theory and concepts of the area of specialization and provide sound analytical input to the work of others.
The C-level Consultant is typically closely supervised by more experienced staff members or senior Consultants.

B-Middle level

The B-level Consultant is typically employed for assignments which require a specialized expertise and minimum five years of professional experience.

These assignments should require seasoned professionals, specialist advisors or experts with complete knowledge of the subject area and the ability to adapt concepts to emerging needs.

The B-level Consultant is expected to carry out assignments with a high level of independence and perform the assigned work with minimal technical guidance.

A-High level

The A-level Consultant is typically employed for a task requiring top level expertise in a particular specialty and minimum twelve years of professional experience. The assignment may result in operational activities involving large commitments of human and/or financial resources. Assignments will typically include the delivery of complex analysis and reports or authoritative advice on highly complex or technical issues. The Consultant is expected to deliver assignments with technical independence. Assignments at this level are innovative or even groundbreaking, and, in addition, require facilitation and coordination.

An A-level Consultant can have significant visibility outside the Organization and may be called upon to shape perceptions of stakeholders and motivate partners.

 

SUBSCRIBERS TO PERSONAL SERVICES AGREEMENTS (PSAs)

A Subscriber to Personal Services Agreements (PSA.SBS) contract is an individual engaged to perform specific task-based assignments for which FAO has a temporary need.

PSAs are independent, external contractors. The assignment should be specific regarding the objectives to be achieved.

In all cases, PSA Subscribers must meet minimum relevant qualifications and language proficiency standards: University Degree and working knowledge of one of the FAO languages (English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian).

Levels

There are three different categories of PSAs based on the number of years of professional experience requested:

C-Base level

This level is typically used for tasks requiring:

i) university graduate with one to four years of pertinent experience; or

ii) technical specialist with at least one year experience of a quasi-professional nature.

The PSA is expected to have good familiarity with the theory, tools and the concepts of the subject matter. The PSA at C-level is usually guided by more experienced staff members or senior Consultants.

The PSA at C-level may be expected to carry out analysis that is limited in complexity or scope.

B-Middle level

The B level is typically employed for high value time-bound PSA assignments such as provision of training, IT services, specialized services.

A PSA at B-level provides technically sound expertise to FAO. Assignments at this level should require seasoned professionals with at least five years of relevant experience, a thorough knowledge of the subject matter and the ability to adapt tools and concepts to emerging needs.

A PSA at B-level is expected to carry out assignments with a high level of independence.

A-High level

The A-level PSA is employed for a task requiring a PSA who is widely known as a top authority or expert in her/his field.

Level-A PSAs will be distinguished based on the requirements for the assignment i.e. whether the assignment requires a recognized global authority in the given field, or a World Class Expert. The assignment should require at least fifteen years of relevant experience.

The PSA at A-level is expected to deliver assignments with technical independence.

 

CONTRACT DURATION

Consultants and Subscribers to PSAs may not work, nor may contracts be issued, for a period exceeding 11 months in any 12-month period. Contract breaks are mandatory, amounting to at least one month in any 12-month period, and at least 6 months after reaching 33 months in any 36-month period.

 

HONORARIA

There are three categories of Consultants/PSAs for the purposes of the calculation of remuneration. These categories are:

  • C – Base Level
  • B – Middle Level
  • A – High Level

 

The Honoraria is calculated by reference to the value of the assignment to be undertaken/task to be completed.

         Category                                            Maximum Daily Rate (USD)

             C                                                                            300

             B                                                                            450

             A                                                                            600
