At this session, the Committee reviewed the report of a Task Force that was established by the Commission at its eight-seventh session to review the conceptual basis of the post adjustment index, as part of the ongoing review of the methodology underpinning the post adjustment system. The report of the Task Force addressed a wide range of technical issues pertaining to the compilation of the post adjustment index, including the measurement objective of the index, the index structure, formula and aggregation; weighting of index components; and statistical methods and procedures for compilation of the index. The Committee also considered some methodological issues regarding several aspects of the measurement of the housing component of the PAI for both group I and group II duty stations.
The session was attended by representatives of many organizations and staff federations, as well as observers from Eurostat and the International Service for Remunerations and Pensions, partner agencies of the ICSC.
