1 Due to a rounding error, Section 6.2 of the financial statements reports total post-employment benefits of $265,000, which should have been rounded up to $266,000.

2 Base salary includes wages and the net movement in the annual leave provision account. It excludes wages for long service leave.

3 Austrade has Australian Public Service (APS) employees working in overseas locations who are paid allowances and benefits related to overseas postings. Allowances and benefits include residential rent for overseas accommodation, cost of living allowances, allowances and education expenses for children living abroad, car parking, motor vehicle, car hire, leave fares, medical costs and insurance, studies assistance and home assistance.

4 Long service leave includes any long service leave taken during the year and the net movement in the long service leave provision account. Changes to salary, entitlements and long service leave actuarial multipliers may impact long service leave provisions.

5 Dr Stephanie Fahey resigned from Austrade on 12 June 2020.

6 David Hazlehurst transferred to another APS agency on 17 April 2020, at which time Kelly Ralston filled the role of Deputy CEO.

7 Daniel Boyer is on an overseas posting to China and receives additional allowances and benefits, as outlined in note 2.

During 2019–20, Austrade made a change to the category of non-ongoing employees.

DISABILITY REPORTING

The National Disability Strategy 2010–20 is Australia’s overarching framework for disability reform. It acts to ensure the principles underpinning the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities are incorporated into Australia’s policies and programs that affect people with disability, their families and carers.

All levels of government will continue to be held accountable for the implementation of the strategy through biennial progress reporting to the Council of Australian Governments. Progress reports can be found at dss.gov.au. Disability reporting is included in the Australian Public Service Commission’s State of the Service reports and the APS Statistical Bulletin. These reports are available at apsc.gov.au
