Personnel Expenditure Analysis — Update
This report provides an analysis of the Government’s spending on personnel over 2020-21 to 2021-22. The report highlights some key findings that were generated from the Personnel Expenditure Analysis Tool, PBO’s interactive online tool.
Even after excluding one-time expenditures, growth in personnel spending from 2019-20 to 2021-22 exceeded its pre-pandemic historical average. This increase is due both to an expansion in the size of the public service and to higher compensation per full-time equivalent.
