Of course every boss would want to give as many of his staff 'A'. But ultimately, the bonus pool is fixed and is distributed accordingly to the performance of the staff. Secondly, if everyone gets 'A', its as good as saying that everyone is performing equally. We know that that is not the case. The idea is to reward the top performing staff and motivate staff to perform. At corporate level, there are differences between bonus, so if a particular department perform very well (which is hard to quantify because department's KPIs are different), staff from that department might receive some additional reward.

Also, among department, there is technically no quota on the number of 'A's, 'B's or 'C' that the Director can award. However, at the corporate level or higher level, the Director have to justify why it is his/her staff that should get the 'A' rather than that some other staff from the other department. This is usually not easy (if it is, it means someone boss is not doing his/her work to fight for his/her staff).
