Remuneration & Conditions

Captain Jørgen Berg

Remuneration 

Capt. Berg’s asking fee is AUD 700 (~ USD 700) (~ EUR 500) per working day on-site in a foreign country. With say 22 working days per month that will amount to an asking fee of USD 15,000 USD per month.

 

It is recognised that in many countries the Ministry of Transport is only open 5 days a week, but it may still be required by the principal or client that the consultant is around for service, inspections, travel, mobile phone communication for the 6th day of the week, in which that 6th day is also subject to a fee payment.

 

Fee structures, per diems, accommodation or limits advised by World Bank (WB), Asian Development Bank (ADB), European Union / Commission (EC), JICA, DANIDA and other lending organisations, for their funded assignments will most likely be accepted.

 

Per Diem 

The usual accommodation costs and meals are covered in the Per Diem which must be sufficient for that purpose. Flight and travel expenses are billed separately in the monthly reimbursable account. 

 

Fee/Per Diem

Due to the income and general situation for Capt. Berg in Australia and in Denmark, and based on experience in recent overseas assignments an increase in the Per Diem is very likely to be preferred against a similar decrease in the fee/remuneration

 

Flight and travel expenses – base Denmark or Australia

The company/principal Capt. Berg is teaming up with for any overseas project assignment, has the option from an expense travel point of view, to decide if the cost of travel should be calculated between the project site and either Denmark or Australia. Capt, Berg has the ability to work out of a home office in both countries. It is envisaged that for example assignments in Asia and the Pacific will be related to the Australian home office, and that for example assignments in Europe and North Africa will be related to the Danish home office. If Capt. Berg decides to use the other office, any additional flight and travel cost will be for his own account.

Conditions

 

Airline travel:

Economy Airline tickets can be provided as pre-paid tickets or E-tickets and will for Australia-originated travel be picked in Tullamarine (Melbourne Airport) on the first day of travel. With well known assignment principals, Capt. Berg can organize and pay for the ticket at the local Flight Centre in Australia.  

 

Accommodation:

No particular class of hotel is required during travel or stay. Port authority guest houses and similar can also be accepted. However, it is expected that the “consultant” will stay in similar conditions as other international consultants members of the team on-site.

 

Countries - assignments:  

Capt. Berg is normally prepared to undertake assignments in all countries as his work in the previous 67 countries or territories has shown, but see under “Consular Advice”.  

 

Consular advice:

If any of the two countries, Denmark or Australia publish a “consular advice” advising citizens of these two countries to leave a specific country or delay travel to that country, then such advice will be followed by Capt. Berg.  

 

Professional Indemnity Insurance:

It is assumed that this insurance will be a part of the assignment principal’s similar insurance for the team and with no expense for Capt. Berg as the consultant. Otherwise the insurance premium must be added to the fee.  

 

Public Liability Insurance:

It is assumed that this insurance will be a part of the assignment principal’s similar insurance for the team and with no expense for Capt. Berg as the consultant. Otherwise the insurance premium must be added to the fee.    

 

Travel insurance:

With travel insurance likely to be less than USD 150 per months, this insurance can be part of the assignment principal’s similar insurance for the team and with no expense for the consultant. It can also be paid for directly by Capt. Berg and for his own account. 

 

Citizenship and passport 

Capt. Berg is a Danish citizen and at the same time, an Australian resident. He is travelling on a European Union passport, issued in Denmark. Both Denmark and Australia are members of ADB and WB, and Denmark is a member of EU. Therefore Capt. Berg complies with the special requirements usually imposed on consultants on assignments sponsored by these organisations.
