What are the Objectives of the Single Spine Pay Policy?


The objectives of the Single Spine Pay are to:


  • Attract and retain critical skills in the public service;
  • Place all public service employees on one structure;
  • Ensure that jobs within the same job value range are paid within the same pay range;
  • Allow government the ability to manage the public service wage bill more efficiently;
  • Ensure compliance and ease of monitoring the pay structures of self-accounting institutions;
  • Minimize industrial relations conflicts related to pay in the public service;
  • Link public service pay to productivity.
