Question details
salaries in net/gross
The documentation of the procedure presents the remuneration for comparable positions in Frontex specified in net EUR amounts, and the contracting authority expects the offer indicated as the margin calculated for net remuneration, including all public-legal burdens. Due to the relatively high amounts of remuneration, it is completely realistic that employees will exceed the first tax threshold during the tax year. In addition, there may be further differences in the amount of public-legal burdens (e.g. the amount of tax deductible costs due to where you live, any zero PIT for employees younger than 26 years or not counting all contributions for 55+ employees). Polish regulations require the same GROSS remuneration to be paid in the same positions. For this reason, please change the tender documentation and indicate GROSS rates of remuneration. In our opinion, the above problem results from the fact of concluding contracts with Frontex permanent employees based on an international agreement, which allows them to be determined in net amounts. Differentiation of temporary employees in this respect additionally leads to the above problem.
As indicated in point 4.5. of the Terms of reference Frontex staff is employed based on the Staff Regulations of officials and the Conditions of Employment of other servants of the European Union. Remuneration of post with similar functions in Frontex is indicated in the tender documentation in net value, in order to allow equal treatment of interim personnel engaged under this framework contract.
