AIATSIS Executive Remuneration

AIATSIS Executive Remuneration Policy

Chief Executive Officer

In accordance with clause 45 (1)(a) of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres

Strait Islander Act 1989, remuneration for the Chief Executive Officer is determined by the Remuneration Tribunal, within the Principal Executive Office Classification Structure and Terms and Conditions.

Other Executives

Decisions on executive remuneration align with the provisions of the APS Executive Remuneration Management policy, issued by the Australian Public Service Commission.

Executive staff who terms and conditions of employment are determined by the AIATSIS Enterprise Agreement 2018-2021 may have those terms supplemented by an Individual Flexibility Arrangement (IFA). An IFA may include terms to vary base salary, include bonus payments and other employment conditions. An IFA requires the agreement of the Chief Executive Officer or delegate on behalf of the agency.

Remuneration for Executive staff whose terms and conditions of employment are not determined by the AIATSIS Enterprise Agreement 2018-2021, is set by a determination made by the Chief Executive Officer. Such determinations may include base salary, applicable allowances, notional superannuation contributions and eligibility for the agency Performance Pay Scheme, in addition to other employment conditions.

AIATSIS Council

In accordance with clause 45 (1)(a) of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Act 1989, remuneration for Council members is determined by the Remuneration Tribunal.
