Over the last two years, Singapore has experienced economic growth, and many companies have faced a tight labour market, including the civil service.

After studying private sector salary data, the Public Service Division (PSD) has decided to make selective salary adjustments for some generic schemes of service in August 2014, in an effort “to close the gaps with the market and ensure that salaries remain competitive”.

“No adjustments are made where the salaries are already market competitive. Officers in the management executive, management support, technical support and clerical support schemes were involved in this adjustment,” PSD said in a media statement.

The last time salaries for generic schemes of service were adjusted was in 2012.

PSD also added statutory boards set their own salaries though they may take reference from the civil service.

The statement did not include the actual salary adjustment, although The Straits Times reported it to be about 5%, and involved executive officers who earned over $10,000 a month.
