Minister of Finance and the Public Service, Dr Nigel Clarke, says a proposed public sector performance-based pay scheme could extend to politicians.
It was announced yesterday that Permanent Secretaries have agreed in principle to a performance-based pay structure as part of the transformation of the public sector.
Minister Clarke says he hopes this will form part of the final recommendations to the cabinet.
He says if the mechanism is implemented, Permanent Secretaries could earn more money.
Dr Clarke is confident the initiative will improve the quality of service being offered in the public sector.
He says other public sector workers may also be open to the proposal.
And, the Finance Minister says there are plans for a general review of compensation structure for public sector workers.
