International Civil Service Commission (ICSC)

International Civil Service Commission

The ICSC is an independent expert body mandated by the UN General Assembly to regulate the conditions of service of staff in the United Nations common system and promote high standards in the international civil service. The Commission is asked either to make decisions itself, on matters such as establishment of daily subsistence allowance and schedules of post adjustment, or to make recommendations to the General Assembly which then acts as the legislator for the rest of the common system. Additionally, the Commission is asked to make recommendations to the executive heads of the organizations on matters such as human resources policy issues.
