For central state administrative agencies and units that are implementing specific financial and income management mechanisms.

Specifically, from January 1, 2024, to June 30, 2024, the salary and additional monthly income will be calculated based on the base salary of 1.8 million VND/month under specific mechanism that ensures it does not exceed salary and additional income received in December 2023 (excluding the additional salary and income due to adjusting the salary coefficient of rank and grade when upgrading grades or scales in 2024).

With the above-mentioned principle, if the salary and additional income in 2024 calculated under the specific mechanism is lower than the salary of general regulations, the salary regime only implemented under general regulations to ensure benefits. for workers.

From July 1, 2024, abolish all specific financial and income management mechanisms of state agencies and administrative units, apply a unified salary, allowance, and income regime; Do not continue to apply the current specific mechanism for regular funding under the specific financial management mechanism (operational expenses, capacity enhancement, modernization, professional performance maintainance, etc. .) of state agencies and administrative units.
