Executive Remuneration Reporting

The Department of Social Services is committed to providing greater transparency of remuneration for executives and other highly paid staff on a continuing annual basis. The information is disclosed at an aggregate level and averaged over the respective remuneration bands and is separated into two tables: Table A includes remuneration paid to executives in the 2016-17 financial year and Table B includes remuneration paid to other highly paid staff in 2016-17 over $200,001 per annum. The average reportable remuneration is based on reportable salary, allowances, any bonus paid and contributed superannuation as reported in an individual’s payment summary.
