The Scottish Government's Public Sector Pay Policy for Staff Pay Remits sets the framework for public sector pay. It applies to the Scottish Government and its associated departments, agencies, non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs), public corporations and NHS Scotland Senior Management posts (Grades A-C only).
Public bodies determine the pay and conditions for their staff according to Scottish Government policy.
Public bodies are provided with the necessary proforma and business case template they will be required to submit to the Scottish Government when seeking approval of their proposals.
A Technical Guide for 2017-18 which explains the terms used in the pay policy document and also assists with the completion of the financial proforma is available below.
