Notice given 30 August 2002

Senator Sherry: To ask the Ministers listed below (Question Nos 603-619)—

(1) For each department within the Minister’s portfolio, how is superannuation calculated (ie. is the superannuation entitlement calculated on base salary and other income payments, such as overtime allowance or performance bonuses, or on base salary alone).

(2) If the department calculates superannuation on a broader basis, by incorporating all income payments in the calculation of superannuation entitlements, but allows employees to opt out of this arrangement so as to reduce the base upon which superannuation is calculated, what proportion of employees do this.

605 Minister representing the Treasurer

613 Minister representing the Attorney-General

614 Minister for Finance and Administration
