All IGIS officers are employed under the Public Service Act 1999. From 6 February 2017 to 5 May 2020, all non-SES officers’ salaries and conditions were made under the Office of the IGIS Enterprise Agreement 2016–2019 and since 6 May 2020 under the Office of the IGIS Enterprise Agreement 2020–2023.

The salary range available to APS employees in the Office throughout the reporting period is provided at Annexure 5.1.

The annual allowance is $1,159.
