The ultimate goal of SRC is to bring the wage bill, which currently stands at 52%, to sustainable levels of below 35% of the domestic revenue. This will go a long way in ensuring that the public sector wage bill is within the threshold provided for by the Public Finance Management Act. We are accountable to Kenyans; and as public servants, we cannot ignore the element of sacrifice as opposed to pay as we serve our country. We should strive towards being a producing country as opposed to a consuming one. We are appealing to the employing agencies to critically look at the numbers as we have a bloated workforce. The wage bill is a factor of employee numbers and actual remuneration. The aim is to ensure we have optimal numbers in the public sector for efficient and effective service delivery.
