As with all departments DWP’s pay setting arrangements are subject to the annual Civil Service pay remit guidance and the parameters that are set within this.

DWP always strives to provide the strongest possible award to its staff within these parameters.

The 2020 Civil Service pay remit guidance allowed departments to make average awards within a range of 1.5%-2.5%. DWP provided the maximum possible headline award of 2.5% for all AA to Grade 6 colleagues.
