Senator Faulkner asked the Minister for Industry, Science and Resources upon notice, on 20 December 1999:

(1) How many senior executive service (SES) officers did the department, and all agencies within the portfolio, employ as at 15 December 1999.

(2) (a) What are the names of the officers;

what are their employment classifications within the SES band structure: and

what are the officers' total emoluments, including but not limited to:

salary (including any salary packaging undertaken),

any travel entitlements,

fringe benefits tax paid on the officers' behalf,

use of motor vehicles,

mobile or home telephones,

superannuation,

performance payments, and

other non-cash benefits (please specify).

(3) (a) How does the department and/or agency determine the basis for performance

payments; and

(b) in particular, what is the relationship between the performance payments policy and the department's and/or agency's actual performance.


Senator Minchin (Minister for Industry, Science and Resources) —The answer to the honourable senator's question is as follows:

(1) Industry, Science and Resources 58

AGSO 2

IP Australia 6

(2) (a) See Attachment

(b) See Attachment

(c) The identification and assessment of each officer's individual financial arrangements and details is a major task and I am not prepared to authorise the time and expenditure to undertake it. In addition, the release of individual remuneration outcomes could raise privacy concerns. However, aggregate figures for SES salary packages were published by the Department of Employment, Workplace Relations and Small Business (DEWRSB) in the September 1999 Key Pay indicators (online) Update No. 1999/03. The update document is located on the DEWRSB website under the Government Employment entry point (Agreement Making): www.dewrsb.gov.au/group_wr/agreemak/agree.htm. These figures were prepared in December 1998 by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on behalf of DEWRSB and cover 24 agencies and approximately 75% of all SES.

(3) Industry, Science and Resources and IP Australia

(a) The basis for performance payments is detailed in individual Australian

Workplace Agreements and includes assessment in accordance with the

Department's SES Performance Planning and Review System (PPR).

The PPR system aligns individual and organisational performance. The system has five key performance areas as follows:

Corporate outcomes;

Stakeholder relationships ;

Innovation;

Accountability and conduct; and

Leadership of people.

AGSO

Performance payments are based on performance against performance criteria established each year through a formal performance planning and assessment process.

Individual performance criteria are established at the start of the performance agreement period in line with organisational goals in business and other plans. Individual performance pay is based on individual achievements against these goals and impact on overall organisational performance.
