Departmental Conditions of Employment

Volume 489: debated on Friday 20 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development if he will place in the Library a copy of his Department's guidance on remuneration and terms of employment for locally-engaged staff; and if he will make a statement. (264102)

A copy of the Department for International Development's (DFID's) local Pay Determination Guidance, together with a copy of the Minimum Employment Standards for locally engaged staff (known as Staff Appointed in Country), will be placed in the Library.

Both documents are currently under review following a recent agreement between DFID and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to bring the pay scales and other terms and conditions of service of our respective locally engaged staff into greater alignment.
