Chief Planner and Chief Operating Officer - their total remuneration were determined in accordance with Section 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999 which provides that ‘An Agency Head may from time to time determine in writing the terms and conditions of employment applying to an APS employee or APS employees in the Agency’.

Chair of the Authority - the total remuneration is in accordance with the Remuneration Tribunal (Remuneration and Allowances for Holders of Part-time Public Office Determination 2019) which specifies a fixed annual salary of $60,980. No portion of the remuneration is ‘at risk’.
