The International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) held its 79th session at the headquarters of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in Rome from 21 July to 1 August 2014. The primary focus of the session was the comprehensive review of the United Nations common system compensation package. In this context, the Commission was presented with a progress report of one of the working groups which it had created at its seventy-seventh session to deal with issues relating to the review, the working group on the remuneration structure. With the guidance received from the Commission, the three working groups will continue with the review and will provide additional updates at the eightieth session of the Commission. The Commission also reviewed the U.S./UN net remuneration margin, health insurance, the mandatory age of separation for existing staff, the level of the base/floor salary scale and post adjustment matters.
