14 Dec P Service Agreement
A Special Service Agreement (SSA) is a contractual arrangement within the United Nations system, which establishes a legal relationship between the organization and the person when the person is a contractor or service provider and not an agent. This arrangement is often used for very short contracts when the organization does not want to shoulder the burden of the complex bureaucracy associated with hiring a new employee and dealing with complex applications and benefits. An EPI can be used as a lump sum agreement allowing a company to use the services of a contractor for an agreed period of time. All positions are temporary appointments. A temporary appointment has no legal or other expectation of an extension or transformation, regardless of the length of service. The terms of service of United Nations University officials are governed by the United Nations Statute and Rules and UNU personnel policy. Staff positions include academic and administrative appointments in the Professional Professional (P), National Officer (NO) and General Services (GS) categories. The Professional Services Agreement (PSA) is used as a “white agreement” to enter into a contract with a consultant for a specified period of time. If an institution is willing to use the advisor`s services, Schedule A (Written Authorization for Service Delivery) is executed.
Figure A shows the services to be provided, the remuneration and the timetable for the performance of the services. Examples of this work are: soil surveys, environmental studies, planning, testing, cost estimation, etc. A professional service contract can be used for a single service and for routine services. It can also be used as a master`s level contract. A written authorization for the delivery of services is established at the time of the provision of services. This is often called Appendix A. It explains the work to be completed and the exact way in which it should be delivered. It also sets the amount of remuneration for work in this area. Environmental studies, soil surveys, cost estimates and planning services are often commissioned in this way.
