Press Releases

The Task Force on the Review of Civil Service Pay Policy and System (The Task Force) has noted with some concern recent reports in the press that it will be making recommendations relating to matters such as absorbing the Model Scale One Pay Scale into the Master Pay Scale, simplifying the Master Pay Scale into six tiers of pay ranges and introducing vouchers to reward outstanding staff, etc. The Task Force would like to clarify that the points quoted above have not been considered.

The Task Force has now completed its consultation exercise. It is now analysing the feedback and drafting the final report. The Task Force will report to the three advisory bodies ( Standing Commission on Civil Service Salaries and Conditions of Service, Standing Committee on Disciplined Services Salaries and Conditions of Service and Standing Committee on Directorate Salaries and Conditions of Service ) which appointed it to enable them to submit their recommendations to the Administration around mid-September 2002.
