  2. Decision making: This was to measure the level of decision-making of the job in the institution given the type of problems that the job holder will be required to solve;
  • Impact: This looked at the impact of the decisions by the job holder including the sphere of its influence; i.e. influence in practices, policies or strategy and the level of influence;
  1. Problem solving: This measured the complexity of the problems the job is required to solve;
  2. Job knowledge: The knowledge and skills that would be required for appointment to the job;
  3. Managerial skills: Technical, human and conceptual skills;
  • Interpersonal skills: The type of communication, verbal and/or written, that the job holder will need to understand in order to perform the job;
  • Working conditions: The exposure of an employee in a working environment;
  1. Responsibility: This measured among others the managerial, operational and financial responsibility of the job;
  2. Independent judgement: This measured whether a job can make independent judgement or has to consult for advice. Evaluating possible causes of conduct, and acting or making a decision after the various possibilities.

Ninety eight (98) Service and Regulatory State Corporations, and forty nine (49) Commercial and State Corporations were evaluated. The total number of jobs evaluated in Service and Regulatory State Corporations were 9,843 while those in Commercial State Corporations were 6,270.

The jobs are distributed as follows across the grades:

Budgetary allocation from Exchequer

Proportion of internally generated funds to Exchequer allocation Ability of institutions to pay recommended salary structure

Attraction of the right calibre of personnel from the competitive job market and Salary survey

The salary structure is as follows:

D1 187,654 253,333 208,505 281,481


Implementation of the Salary Structure

The implementation of the salary structure will be based, amongst others, on:

  • The alignment of the model salary to the grading structure communicated earlier by the Commission;
  • Individual institutions assessment of the financial implication of implementing the model salary structure, and demonstration of the ability to pay within the structure by making a proposal to the Commission for advice.

The Commission engaged Service and Regulatory State Corporations, and Commercial State Corporations in February 2017, to interrogate their grading structures so as to ensure the classification is fair, the grades are well defined and there is logically designed framework within which the principles of equity and parity are articulated. On Nov. 11, 2016, SRC released the job evaluation results for commissions and independent bodies; counties; and commercial, service and regulatory state corporations, following evaluation of over 40,000 jobs. This was followed by release of a salary structure for the civil service in December 2016 whose implementation begins in July 2017.

The new salary scales are as follows:

TITLE SALARY(KSH)
PRESIDENT 1.4 MILLION
DEPUTY PRESIDENT 1.2 MILLION
CABINET SECRETARY 924,000
PERMANENT SECRETARY 874,500
PARLIAMENT SPEAKER 1.155 MILLION
