Remuneration Group

When required, the Scottish Government Remuneration Group considers and approves staff pay remit proposals, as well as any new or revised remuneration proposals for chief executives, chairs and board members. The Group works under delegated decision-making powers agreed by the Permanent Secretary, the Executive Team and Scottish Ministers in relation to public sector pay policy.
