The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) has released the ‘Allowances Policy Guideline for the Public Service.’ The overarching objective of the policy guideline is to provide a structured approach for streamlining management and administration of allowances, so as to improve transparency, accountability, equity, and fairness, thereby, ensuring that the total public compensation bill is affordable and fiscally sustainable.

The policy guideline was developed through a consultative and participatory process with stakeholder and public participation undertaken as required under Articles 10 and 232 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.
