the application of the Noblemaire principle, 5/ 

          Recalling also section I.B of its resolution 44/198 of 21

Nations emoluments and those of the highest-paying national civil
service,

          Recalling further section I.A of its resolution 50/208 of 23
December 1995, by which it decided to defer consideration of the

International Civil Service Commission to review the recommendations
and conclusions contained in chapter III.A of its twenty-first annual
report, 6/ taking into account the views expressed by Member States
at the fiftieth session of the General Assembly, in particular
regarding the appropriateness of the reduction of dominance and the
treatment of bonuses in determining net remuneration comparisons,

principle;

          2.  Reaffirms the need to continue to ensure the competitiveness

          Recalling that, in the past, the General Assembly had requested
the International Civil Service Commission to make recommendations on
the net remuneration margin methodology and that the Assembly has
taken decisions in this regard,

          Recalling also that, by section I.C, paragraph 3, of its
resolution 44/198, it had endorsed the methodological approach for the
calculation of the net remuneration margin as outlined in paragraph

Commission, 8/

          Recalling further section VIII of its resolution 46/191 A of 20

appraisal in the United Nations common system as a vehicle for
enhancing productivity and cost-effectiveness, as well as section VII
of its resolution 49/223 of 23 December 1994,

          1.  Decides that the net remuneration margin methodology without

mid-point of 115, for the margin between net remuneration of officials

federal civil service should continue to apply, on the understanding
that the margin would be maintained at a level around the desirable
mid-point of 115 over a period of time;

          3.  Notes that the margin between net remuneration of officials
in the Professional and higher categories of the United Nations in New
York and that of officials in comparable positions in the United

paragraph 1 above, is 114.6;

          4.  Approves, with effect from 1 January 1997, the revised scale

          5.  Reiterates its request contained in section I.A., paragraph
4, of its resolution 50/208 that organizations should collect data to

occupational rates as appropriate;

          6.  Requests the Secretary-General to make operational proposals
to the General Assembly by 1 October 1997, for its consideration at

outstanding performance and specific achievements in a given year;

          7.  Invites the executive heads of the organizations of the
United Nations common system to develop and submit proposals to their
relevant intergovernmental bodies, as a matter of priority, on the

specific achievements in a given year, and to coordinate, to the
extent possible, these proposals with those developed by the
Secretary-General;

          8.  Requests the Commission to provide general comments on the
concept of performance awards and bonuses to the General Assembly at
its fifty-second session;


                          D.  Supplementary payments

          Recalling the resolutions adopted by the General Assembly at its
forty-fifth session regarding the decisions of the International Civil
Service Commission with respect to the practice of some Member States
of making supplementary payments with respect to their nationals, and
recalling also the affirmation by the Commission that such
arrangements are unnecessary, inappropriate and undesirable, and are
inconsistent with the staff regulations of the organizations,

          1.  Requests the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the
executive heads of the organizations of the common system to take such
measures and make such proposals as they consider appropriate in order
to end such practices;

appropriate, instructions to staff regarding the unacceptability of
receiving supplementary payments;

headquarters duty stations,

          Recalling also its request in section I.B, paragraph 3, of its
resolution 50/208, regarding the operation of the post adjustment
system and the examination of the system by the working group on post
adjustment of the International Civil Service Commission, including
the identification of elements of pay (expenditures) that should not
be indexed for local price changes, the evaluation of out-of-area
expenditures as part of pay and the study of the appropriateness of
applying the out-of-area index to some of those elements,

           Recalling further its request in section I.B, paragraph 2, of its
resolution 50/208, regarding the establishment in 1996, in respect of
staff members whose duty station is Geneva, of a single post
adjustment index which is fully representative of the cost of living
of all staff working in the duty station and which ensures equality of
treatment with staff in other headquarters duty stations,

            1.  Endorses the decision of the International Civil Service
Commission regarding the out-of-area expenditure weights as contained
in paragraph 188 of its report, 1/ and requests the Commission to
continue to monitor this issue and to report to the General Assembly
as appropriate;

            2.  Notes the introduction, with effect from 1 March 1997, of
minimum out-of-area expenditure weights in the calculation of post
adjustment indices, as contained in paragraph 188 of the report of the
Commission;

            3.  Reiterates its request to the Commission urgently to
complete its study regarding the methodology for establishing a single

later than 1 January 1998;

            4.  Requests the Commission to review further all the issues
relating to the post adjustment system, including those listed in

to the General Assembly at its fifty-third session;


                          F.  Dependency allowances

          Recalling section II.F, paragraph 2, of its resolution 47/216 of
23 December 1992, in which it noted that the International Civil

reflecting relevant changes in tax abatement and social legislation at
the seven headquarters duty stations since 1993,

          1.  Approves, with effect from 1 January 1997, an increase of
7.98 per cent in the children's allowance (including that for disabled

         Recalling that, in section XIV of its resolution 45/241 of 21

Civil Service Commission to consider, inter alia, the relativities
between the terms and conditions of service of staff in the
Professional and higher categories and those in other categories,

         Recalling also section III, paragraph 1, of its resolution
47/216, in which it endorsed the reaffirmation by the Commission of

service of the General Service and related categories,

methodologies for the surveys of the best prevailing local conditions

the working groups of the International Civil Service Commission in

         3.  Requests the Commission, as part of its review of the
methodology for salary setting for staff in the General Service and
other locally recruited categories:

that methodology and the one which is applied pursuant to the
Noblemaire principle, inter alia, by examining the question of overlap
in remuneration between the two categories;

Commission, in close cooperation with the United Nations Joint Staff
Pension Board, as part of the comprehensive review of the methodology

common staff assessment scale for the determination of the pensionable
remuneration of all categories of staff using the above-mentioned
procedure and reflecting the latest available tax rates,

Commission and the Board has resulted in agreement between the two

common staff assessment scale for all categories of staff, as
reflected in their respective reports,

          Noting that the Commission, in accordance with article 10 (d) of
