As the appointments of individual UNDP staff are based on the UN Staff Regulations and UN Staff Rules, legal and administrative interpretations shall be made on the basis of these instruments. Salaries and related allowances and benefits that are based on the UN Staff Regulations and UN Staff Rules as well as relevant published policies, are normally paid through payroll.

The UN Common System Allowances that are mandated by the Chairman, International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) must be managed in accordance with the criteria established and approved by the ICSC.

Any other ad-hoc administrative and operational allowances or one-time lump sum payments that are established locally require approval by Headquarters prior to implementation.
