Cabinet Office commissioned the Hay Group to develop an illustrative zonal pay model.
After Autumn Statement 2011, the Cabinet Office, on behalf of departments, commissioned the Hay Group to develop an illustrative zonal pay model of private sector median salaries for roles that are comparable to the core civil service grades.
At the 2012 Autumn Statement, the Chancellor announced that there will be no centrally-imposed changes to the geographical structure of pay in the civil service. This report is for information only. Decisions on pay reform are for individual departments in support of their own business and workforce needs.
