As part of government-wide fiscal restraint measures, the Executive Pay-For-Performance Plan has been suspended for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 fiscal years.
Health region CEOs and Vice-Presidents will receive their base rate of pay (100 per cent of their salary) for 2014-15 and 2015-16.
Executive Pay-for-Performance Plan
The government, Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (SCA) are focused on quality patient care and improving the patient experience. RHA and SCA CEOs and executive staff play a critical role in our health system and are being asked to lead transformational change throughout the health system. To encourage this leadership and increase executives' accountability, in 2011 the Ministry of Health, RHAs and the SCA agreed to an Executive Pay-for-Performance Plan (EPPP) for their CEOs and vice-presidents (and equivalents). The plan measures and compensates for senior-level responsibility to successfully achieve established objectives.
EPPP performance targets vary between health regions. Performance measures are chosen to ensure executive targets are aligned with provincila health system and regional priorities. 50% of the plan value is based on province-wide goals established by the Ministry in consultation with the RHAs and SCA. 30% of the plan is based on organizational measures established by the Board of the Kelsey Trail Regional Health Authority in consultation with the CEO. 10% of the plan value is based on patient satisfaction and the remaining 10% is based on an assessment of executive behaviours or competencies linked to organizational and provincial values.
Final rates of annual pay will be between 90% and 110% of base salary as determined by the specific combination of targets that are missed, met and exceeded by each Executive.
