Government receives 2013 Pay Level Survey report from Standing Commission on Civil Service Salaries and Conditions of Service

     A spokesperson for the Civil Service Bureau said that the Administration received the Standing Commission on Civil Service Salaries and Conditions of Service (the Standing Commission)'s Report No. 52 on the 2013 Pay Level Survey (PLS) today (October 30).

     "The PLS is an integral part of the Improved Civil Service Pay Adjustment Mechanism (the Mechanism). Its purpose is to ascertain whether civil service pay is broadly comparable with private sector pay. The Survey provides an objective basis on which civil service pay can be determined. The Administration is grateful for the time and effort the Standing Commission has devoted to the PLS,กจ the spokesperson said.

     "The Administration will consult major staff organisations on the findings and recommendations of the Standing Commission before deciding on the way forward. It will also consult the Legislative Council (LegCo) Panel on Public Service, and will seek the advice of the Standing Committee on Disciplined Services Salaries and Conditions of Service (SCDS) and the Standing Committee on Directorate Salaries and Conditions of Service (Directorate Committee) on how the survey findings should be applied to the disciplined services and the directorate respectively.

     "Upon receiving the views from staff organisations and advice from the SCDS and the Directorate Committee, the Administration will submit its recommendations on the way forward to the Chief Executive-in-Council for a decision. The approval of the Finance Committee of the LegCo will be sought in the event of any change to civil service pay," added the spokesperson.

     Under the Mechanism, a PLS should be conducted every six years. The 2013 PLS is the second PLS under the Mechanism with the first PLS conducted in 2006 by the Civil Service Bureau.
