Nigerian Civil Service Salary Structures

Introduction

Salaries and Wages in Nigeria Public service are determined by the National Salaries, Incomes & Wages Commission (NSIWC). This agency is saddled with the responsibility of deciding a realistic compensation system in the Nigerian economy. It does annual reviews of wages and salaries in the Nigerian Civil Service. The various salary structures in Nigerian civil service according to NSIWC are as follows;

Consolidated Tertiary Institutions Salary Structure (CONTISS)

CONTISS is a salary structure that originated from the University Salary Structure (USS), which was introduced in the early 1980s, following the Cookey Report on the study of the problem of remuneration in the university system. This salary structure applies to the non-academic staff of universities; all academic  and  non-academic  staff  of  Polytechnics,  Colleges  of  Education, Research  and  Allied  Institutes;  and  medical/dental/veterinary doctors/optometrists  with  OD  Degrees  in  Federal  Health  Institutions  such  as Teaching Hospitals, Medical Centers, Specialist Hospitals etc. It also applies to all Federal Agencies formerly running the Harmonized Tertiary Institutions Salary Structure (HATISS).

It is a 15-grade salary structure with each scale consisting of a number of steps ranging from 15 for the lower grades to 9 for the highest grades.

The new structure known as the Consolidated Tertiary Institutions Salary Structure (CONTISS) is attached as Info-graph 1. The  items consolidated with the basic salary are transport allowance, meal subsidy, utility allowance, leave grant, journal allowance, research allowance, learned society allowance,  furniture  allowance,  examination  administration  allowance,  field trip  allowance,  industrial  supervision  allowance,  responsibility  allowance, inducement  allowance,  administrative  officer  allowance,  rural  posting allowance,  clinical  duty  allowance,  teaching  allowance,  domestic  servant allowance and driver’s allowance (for entitled officers).
