    You don’t need to reject it or make a fuss

    But you are entitled to ask how the salary was arrived at. Normally, government jobs have a set pay scale. You are hired at a location on that pay scale. I have never seen a pay at EXACTLY 60,000 on a government pay scale

    $61,330 seems like a pay they would offer. $60,000 on the nose does not

    They made an offer. You accepted. That's a contract.

    You have the right to ask the question. I'm not advocating getting nuts about it, and going all legal in pointing out the offer-acceptance thing, because they'll likely shit-can you if you come off as a PITA, but there's no reason to not ask. 1000 bucks is a thousand bucks. You shouldn't lose points for pointing out a clerical error.

    Of course it's not my job or my income, so do what's best for you....
