This PQ can only be responded to fully at a disproportionate cost as data held includes other salary increases (e.g. promotion increases) besides the annual pay award increases.

The annual pay awards for the delegated grades (i.e. below Senior Civil Service) have been applied in accordance with HM Treasury pay guidance that restricts increases in paybill to an average of one per cent across all staff. Over the last few years, the department has targeted pay awards so that lower paid staff receive higher awards than those at the top of pay ranges.

The annual pay arrangements for the Senior Civil Service are based on the outcomes of the Senior Salaries Review Body Report and the Government’s response to its recommendations. The arrangements are applied centrally by Cabinet Office. Over the last three years, pay awards for HM Treasury senior civil servants have based on their performance and their position in the pay range. Overall, an average award of 1% has applied to this group of staff, in each year.
