Cost of Living Allowance level

Does the Cost of Living Allowance analysis take into account differing levels of compensation ex-pats will receive?

A Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) is a salary supplement paid to employees to cover differences in the cost of living, particularly as a result of an international assignment. If the cost of living difference is for example 30% then in order to have the same purchasing power the COLA would be the amount paid to compensate for the 30% higher cost of living. The amount of COLA is retalted to both the cost of living difference and the amount of salary.

The formula for calculating the cost of living allowance is as follows:
(Net Spendable Salary x Cost of Living Index x Hardship Index x Exchange Rate) less (Net Spendable Salary x Exchange Rate) = Net COLA.
