The total amount of (a) end year bonuses paid in each of the last three years, which relates to staff individual performance in the previous financial year, is shown below:


Total Amount Paid in Bonuses (£)*







*Non-consolidated performance related pay is only paid to reward excellence, for example to recognise and incentivise those responsible for delivering high quality public services and savings to the taxpayer. These one-off payments are not pensionable. Since 2010-11, the Government has restricted awards for senior civil servants to the top 25% of performers (from 65% in previous years), saving around £15 million overall.

(b) No in-year bonuses were paid in the period.
