Executive Remuneration

The categories of officials covered by the disclosure are:

  • Key management personnel
  • Senior executives

The Coordinator-General’s remuneration is set by the Remuneration Tribunal under section 13 of the Remuneration Tribunal Act 1973.

Remuneration for the Department’s Senior Executive Service (SES) employees is established through individual determinations made under section 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999. The individual determinations are established by the Coordinator-General based on remuneration arrangements similar to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet or the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment.

During the period, some SES officers (including the Chief Operating Officer) were on secondment for some or all of their period working at the Agency. Information on their remuneration for the secondment period was obtained from the relevant Department to complete the remuneration information presented below.
