The only response required is sign and return.

As a hiring manager, it is my understanding that all the negotiations that
are going to happen have already happened and the letter merely puts
what has been verbally agreed to by our company and the candidate in
writing to receive signatures. If a candidate responded to our offer
letter with an attempt to negotiate further, our response would be to
rescind the offer and move on to the next candidate.

The time to negotiate is when the interviewer asks what your salary
expectations are. Government positions are the exception, as to
my knowlege the salaries are dictated by the job postings and are
not negotiable because all terms of the job have to remain as posted
from start of the process to its conclusion.

When I received the offer letter it was right in line with my expectations
and requirements, so I accepted.

I spoke with a colleague over the holidays and when I mentioned the offer
letter, he immediately asked if I negotiated the compensation. I didn't
consider this because a) this is a full time government job b) the pay was
up there in the TW4 range c) my inexperience with offer letters.
