Welcome to the NGO Local Pay website. NGO Local Pay is an initiative to create reliable, tailored compensation survey data for the international NGO community.
Birches Group, InsideNGO and People In Aid, are pleased to continue the efforts begun in 2008 as the LiNGO survey. NGO Local Pay surveys will be conducted, on a demand basis; We will launch a survey once there are sufficient registrants for a particular country.
The survey examines salaries and benefits for the local staff population of the international NGO and development community. We hope to cover all countries where there is sufficient interest to launch a survey. Each country survey includes a two-part report which compares your data to the market for base pay, fixed allowances (such as thirteenth month), short-term incentives and in-kind benefits (such as meals, transportation and recreation). Values are shown for each position at various percentiles of the market.
The survey report also includes prevalence information for benefits such as retirement and medical plans; insurance programs; family benefits; and leave benefits. A summary of the local Social Security and Labor Law, Income Tax and Exchange Rate history is also featured in the report.
Positions covered by the NGO Local Pay survey include all country-based jobs, from general support to programme roles and technical specialties. See the survey jobs page for more information.
The cost of each survey is US$595 per surveyed location for NGOs; a fee of US$1,000 applies to for profit development organizations. For more information about other pricing options, visit our pricing page.
Advance registration is the best way to ensure that a survey will be conducted in the countries of interest to your organization. Visit the registration page for more information and the appropriate forms.
