Pay for Civil Servants outside of the Senior Civil Service is a matter delegated to departments. Pay awards are informed by a range of factors including recruitment, retention, affordability and the scope for productivity gains.

Departments set pay within the Civil Service pay remit guidance which is published on gov.uk annually. The remit guidance for 2019/20 will be agreed in 2019 and it will then be for departments to determine their pay levels within that framework.
