Government program provides for performance pay supplement in the civil service

The Government Program delivered today in parliament foresees individual career plans for public administration workers and the creation of a performance pay supplement or variable bonuses based on merit.

In the document, the executive led by Luís Montenegro defends “a medium-term human resources policy for each entity, as well as implementing individual career development plans for civil servants”.

For the government, “merit must be more valued and reflected in the remuneration conditions of civil servants, which will be guaranteed by modernizing the updating and progression systems for general careers, with a view to creating a performance pay supplement,” the Government Programme states.

“Developing material incentives for performance, considering solutions such as pay supplements or variable bonuses” is one of the proposals in this area.

Professional merit should be “immediately reflected in career progression and in workers’ pay conditions” and should be measured “through 360-degree evaluations that are less bureaucratic and focused on a process of continuous improvement, where the autonomy and consequent accountability of public leaders and managers are fundamental pillars”.

The Government Program of the Democratic Alliance (AD) was approved today in the Council of Ministers, on the eve of two days of debate in parliament, on Thursday and Friday.

The Minister for the Presidency, António Leitão Amaro, said that the document is based on AD’s electoral program, but incorporates “more than 60 measures from the electoral programs of other parties with parliamentary representation”.
