Mohammed bin Zayed amends salary scheme for Abu Dhabi Government departments

posted on 18/04/2007: 1310 views

Upon the directives of President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Council has issued a resolution amending the grade and salary scheme for Government departments in Abu Dhabi Emirate.

Resolution number 16 for 2007 aims at bringing the Emirate's government performance at par with international standards through forging a drastic change in the driving philosophy of the salary scheme.

Upon the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, labour market comparative studies had been conducted to ensure that the new salary system would offer fair compensation, attract outstanding professionals, and provide sound basis for competitiveness and fairness for employees of government departments in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The new salary scheme is an integral component of Abu Dhabi Government's strategic development programme. It will add credit to the Government's achievements in the area of streamlining governmental performance. It will also help realize the Government's aspiration to become a benchmark in all spheres.

Under the new scheme, over 40 allowances will be consolidated into one overall allowance, thus eliminating long bureaucratic procedures and saving considerable time and effort.

The scheme will apply invariably to national and non-national employees. It will consist of a basic salary and an all-inclusive allowance that replaces all the previous allowances, both in kind and cash (such as housing, education, etc).

The scheme will support the Government's drive toward creating an excellence-conducive culture by establishing merit and eligibility as the underlying criteria for pay.

The new scheme will enhance good governance as it focuses on transparency and sound performance. On the other hand, it will make government departments more attractive to Nationals, which will in turn trigger the pace of localization of these institutions. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
