Attracting, retaining and motivating highly skilled individuals is essential for the Civil Service to deliver for the British people and that is why pay must be fair and competitive as well as affordable to the taxpayer, with performance-related awards and vouchers being a key part of this.

Performance related awards, paid out as non-cash vouchers, are standard practice across Government. The Department uses instant reward vouchers to reward individuals who have a positive impact on the delivery of the Department’s business, with awards usually ranging between £25 and £100.

The total value of non-cash vouchers provided to employees working for the Department in 2022/23 was £445,000 (rounded to the nearest £1,000).
