that mean all my friend in DSTA, that I had ask had bluff me la...

they only told me yearly increment is 4-5% or $100-150 per year!!!

if it is really 10% increment(maybe the total increment of 1x in june and 1x in dec = 10%) at least per year.....

then I can say that those 2nd upper grad with NS, starting 3580, after 3 years in dsta will be getting 4.7k if no promotion, will hit 5k if got at least 1x promotion...<<<m i correct to say that this is true!!!

and every 2-3 years, will have salary/wage market adjustment too



thank for the input

u can ask them for the past FY, how much is their increment. i believe the $100 is the end of year increment. he has not added in those misc increments / salary adjustments during the year.

after 3 years can hit 4.7k? cant confirm, but i will say it won't be far off. if promoted within 2 yrs, will hit even faster. if not, then will take 3-4 yrs to hit that amount. a promotion increment will be about $300-$400.

i just quote a 2nd upper with NS [email protected] fresh grad = 3580

just an example
year 0, 2012---->3580
after 1 yr, 2013---->1.1x3580= 3938
after 2 yr, 2014---->1.1x3938= 4331
after 3 yr, 2015---->1.1x4331= 4765---->will hit 4.7k if no promotion(i suppose is average C performer), if got promotion will be 300-400 more, thus 5k -5.1k in 3 years..


hope my hypothesis is correct

Hi everyone,

I am currently offered the position of Procurement Executive. Executive pay is 3.2K a month (I'm a girl). for guys, it'll be 3.5K.

Engineers pay is much higher than Executive's pay. My friend is getting 3.9K for second upper.

I have yet to start work, but my friends who are in DSTA told me increment is about 10% each year, and the bonus depends very much on the economy. They got 2-3 months last year.

Hope it helps!

oh yes, DSTA is contract. Its a one year contract, but most likely you'll be converted to perm staff as long as you don't screw things up

As you had mention, you are a female.
Can I know are you 2nd lower or 2nd upper for 3.2k as Procurement Executive?

10% basic increment maybe true for recent past 2 years, even Civil Service is giving out around there - given the exponential rise in property prices. Would be highly doubtful if it's "repeatable" every year for long. If true, most millionaires in sg will be milled out from dsta.
