Senior Management Pay

The Public Accounts Committee undertook an inquiry into senior management pay across the Welsh public sector. This inquiry was generated by the Committee to consider value for money aspects of the pay of senior managers in the public sector. The Committee did not consider the salaries of individuals, but rather ensure adequate accountability and transparency around senior management pay across the public sector.


As part of this inquiry the Committee considered:

  • The decision making process for setting pay, particularly whether this is appropriate for achieving value for money across the public sector;
  • The method for agreeing pay increases;
  • The transparency of pay and rewards/benefits eg pensions or returning officer fees;
  • The quality and level of comparative data that exists for senior management pay across the public sector; and
  • Whether there should be a body that has a remit for taking and overview of pay / remuneration across the public sector in Wales
