Public Service chief executive remuneration and reward - guiding principles

Achieving a sustained improvement in Public Service performance requires a significant shift in how government departments operate and work together, now and over time.

Encouraging this shift is dependent on an appropriate performance management and remuneration system that rewards better cross-system behaviour and ensures chief executives meet their system-wide stewardship responsibilities.

We have developed Reward Philosophy and Principles which guide the design, application and review of the remuneration paid to Public Service chief executives to support these aims.
