SRC Mandate On Salaries and Remuneration For State Officers
The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) as a constitutional body has two primary responsibilities under the Constitution.
The first is for state officers, and the second is for other public officers. These are stated unequivocally.
SRC is in charge of setting salaries and remuneration for state officers. This applies to all state officers.
Members of the National Assembly, Senators, judges, Cabinet Secretaries and County Assemblies are all included. These are the top government officials.

Article 230 of the Constitution specifies this role. As a result, there are multiple representations in the commissions.
The Parliamentary Service Commission, which deals with MPs, and the Public Service Commission (PSC), which deals with public officers, both have representation on the commission.
The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) represents judges, the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) represents police officers, and the Teachers Service Commission represents teachers (TSC).
Because of county governments, it is also represented in the Senate.
The SRC is in charge of determining the salaries of all state officers. Nobody can claim that role because it is explicitly stated in the Constitution.
The role of other public officers is to advise the national and county governments.
National government civil servants are supposed to advise the Public Service Commission.
As a result, the Parliamentary Service Commission is not authorized to deal with MP salaries and remuneration.
The Parliamentary Service Commission has the authority to make recommendations to the Salaries and Remuneration Commission. T
hey can even plan a budget. They cannot, however, be authorized to pay MPs any remuneration or benefits.

This includes any type of allowance. That is the responsibility of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission.
However, if you are a civil servant and not a state officer, the SRC’s role is to advise the national and county governments.
In the case of the national government, the Public Service Commission will now determine remuneration, in consultation with SRC.
That is the law, and nothing can change it unless the Constitution is changed.
