WESTERN AUSTRALIA SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES ACT 1975

DETERMINATION OF THE SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES TRIBUNAL

FOR CLERKS AND DEPUTY CLERKS OF THE PARLIAMENT, PUBLIC SERVICE OFFICE HOLDERS INCLUDED IN THE SPECIAL DIVISION AND PERSONS HOLDING OFFICES PRESCRIBED IN SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES REGULATION NUMBER 3

Pursuant to Sections 6(1) (c) (d) and (e)

December 2012

BACKGROUND

1.   On 31 March 2011 the Tribunal issued a determination which included variations to the remuneration of office holders included in the Special Division of the Public Service and persons holding Prescribed Offices.1 In that determination the Tribunal embarked upon a revised salary structure to properly accommodate the levels of responsibility, accountability and work value across the range of CEO and senior officer positions throughout this sector of the public service. This initiative was continued in the determination handed down on 22 February 2012.2

2.   Prior to the implementation of this structure, salary levels for these office holders could only be ascertained by obtaining additional information particular to each appointee not provided in the determination. This information went to seeing whether the officer held the position under a tenured or non-tenured appointment (the latter attracting a 20 per cent loading). Then it would have been necessary to establish the officer’s length of service within the position to discover the salary to which the appointee had progressed but which established a salary point without reference to the classification stated in the determination. Following these steps, it was then necessary to see whether the office came within the definition of a CEO under the Public Sector Management Act 1994 which attracted an additional loading of $5,000. Under the previous salary structure it was impossible to identify the salary of office holders by reference to the determination alone.

3.   The revised salary structure now in place not only allows the Tribunal to more effectively identify the levels of responsibility, accountability and work value of these positions but now provides transparency not previously available. It also provides scope within the new salary band structure to accommodate attraction and retention issues and mobility within the public service.

4.   While the transition to the new salary structure has necessitated some adjustments for individual office holders arising from the abolition of the tenured/non-tenured status and the entitlement to progression under the former salary scale, general salary adjustments for office holders have been in line with community wage and salary adjustments.

5.   The scope of ‘remuneration’ under the Salaries and Allowances Act 1975 requires the identification and determination of all benefits, entitlements and payments (whether in money or not) which devolve to the office holder pursuant to the reward for performance of the duties of the appointment. This lends credence to the notion of implementing the ‘total employment cost’ model to take into account the provision of motor vehicles, superannuation and allowances and benefits ascribed to remote locations and any special arrangements such as travel and leave which attach to the attraction and retention of particular appointments. Although these generally follow the public service standards, the particular identification of these by the Tribunal is necessary for the employing authority of these offices to authorise the payment or allow access to the benefits.

6.   The ‘remuneration package’ for Special Division and Prescribed Office holders pursuant to this determination is ascertained by reference to:

  • Part 3 Salary of the First Schedule where the designated office holder is identified together with the salary determined for the office; plus
  • The provision of a motor vehicle or the cash value of the motor vehicle under Part 4 of the First Schedule; plus
  • District and Travel Allowances under Part 5 of the First Schedule where the officer is located in remote areas; plus
  • Housing and Utilities payments including rental subsidies, home ownership subsidies and electricity subsidies under Part 6 of the First Schedule where the office holder is located in a remote area; and
  • Superannuation under Part 7 of the First Schedule in line with contributions pursuant to the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (Cth), the State Superannuation Act 2000 and the State Superannuation Regulations 2001 or the Fire and Emergency Services Regulations 1986 as the case may be or as otherwise determined in Part 7 of the First Schedule.

CONDUCT OF THE INQUIRY

7.   In discharging the responsibilities given to it by the Parliament, the Tribunal has in the context of its current inquiry adopted the following approach. It has:

  • advertised for public submissions;
  • written to office holders inviting submissions about their positions;
  • undertaken a series of individual reviews of Special Division positions and Prescribed Offices;
  • considered relevant labour market and economic data; and
  • sought advice from its Statutory Advisor.

Public submissions

8.   Submissions to the Tribunal’s current inquiry were invited through an advertisement placed in The West Australian on 8 August 2012 and on the Tribunal’s web site with a closing date of 5 September 2012.

Invitation to Office Holders

9.   The Tribunal wrote to office holders on 23 August 2012 inviting submissions. In so doing, office holders were invited to advise the Tribunal of any significant changes to the work value of their positions and other relevant factors.

Review

10.   In line with past practice, the Tribunal, independent of any submissions, has initiated reviews of a number of positions. Mercer (Australia) Pty Ltd (“Mercer”), a leading consultancy organisation with established national expertise in public and private sector remuneration, was engaged to examine a number of Prescribed Offices and to report to the Tribunal. Comparative remuneration data was also sought from Mercer.

Labour Market and Economic Data

11.   The Tribunal considered labour market and economic indices including the Wage Price Index (WPI), Average Weekly Earnings, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and Total Employment Growth. The Tribunal has monitored economic commentaries and forecasts from a range of state, national and international sources. Consideration has also been given to recent increases provided under existing awards and current public sector wage negotiations.

Advice from Statutory Advisor

12.   The Tribunal requested advice from its Statutory Advisor on the Special Division and Prescribed Offices, regarding submissions to the Tribunal, machinery of government changes and a range of other relevant issues.

CONSIDERATIONS

13.   During the current inquiry, the Tribunal reviewed all positions in the Special Division of the Public Service, Prescribed Offices and the Clerks and Deputy Clerks of the Parliament. The Tribunal considered all submissions received, the state of the labour market and the economy, as well as remuneration structures for senior public sector offices in other Australian jurisdictions.

14.   When determining appropriate classifications for office holders’ positions, the Tribunal took into account a variety of factors including work value, market forces, value to the State and government priorities.

Submissions

15.   Twenty eight submissions were received from office holders in the Special Division of the Public Service and Prescribed Offices. Submissions were also received from Senior Legal Officers, the Clerks of the Parliament and a submission from the Government.

16.   Most submissions sought either an increase in classification or an increase in remuneration within their current classification. The main issues raised in submissions referred to changes in responsibilities and/or work value that had occurred in the roles of the office holders.

Government Wages Policy

17.   The Tribunal was advised that the Government’s wages policy provides for possible wage increases above CPI where work practice reforms or efficiency initiatives are included, with total increases capped at projected growth in the Western Australian WPI (currently 4.5% for 2012/13).

Work Value Assessments

18.   The Tribunal commissioned Mercer (Australia) Pty Ltd (‘Mercer’) to conduct work value assessments on the following 10 offices:

  • Auditor General;
  • Deputy Auditor General;
  • Commissioner for Children and Young People;
  • Inspector of Custodial Services;
  • Deputy Electoral Commissioner;
  • Commissioner for Equal Opportunity;
  • Information Commissioner;
  • Parliamentary Commissioner for Administrative Investigations (Ombudsman);
  • Deputy Parliamentary Commissioner for Administrative Investigations (Deputy Ombudsman); and
  • Public Sector Commissioner.

19.   These work value assessments measure the nature and complexity of the office within the context of the statutory framework under which the office holder functions and the responsibility, skills and accountability which attach to the discharge of duties of the office.

22.   The economic indicators provided in Tables 1 and 2 demonstrate that the Western Australian economy is in a solid, steady period of economic growth. This is supported by statements from the Department of Treasury and economic advisory bodies such as the Reserve Bank of Australia 3. However it is recognised by the Tribunal that despite the relatively healthy economic outlook in Western Australia, compared with other states and countries, there remain risks to the Western Australian economy associated with global financial issues and volatile commodity prices.

23.   A recent statement by the Premier and Treasurer4 highlighted some of the economic risks faced by the public sector arising from the volatility in iron ore prices, continuing strength in the Australian dollar and shrinking share of Goods and Services Tax revenue.

CONCLUSIONS

24.   The Tribunal’s determinations of 31 March 2011 and 22 February 2012 established the new classification and remuneration structure for the Special Division and Prescribed Office holders. The result of this inquiry is to provide for a general economic adjustment for officer holders, recognise those office holders who have undergone substantial changes in their responsibilities or work value and to correct the few anomalies that occurred when translating existing salaries under the old classification and remuneration structure into the new model.

25.   At this time, having taken into regard the general economic conditions and wage movements in the public and private sectors, an adjustment in salaries in line with general economic movements is appropriate. Accordingly, salaries shall be increased by 3.25 per cent with effect from 1 January 2013

Work Value Assessments and Remuneration Adjustments

26.   After considering work value assessments, submissions from office holders and advice from the Tribunal’s statutory advisor, the Tribunal has adjusted the remuneration of the following office holders in recognition of the changes in statutory amendments, accountability to Parliament and/or the community, machinery of government changes and to address anomalies arising out of the transition to the new classification and remuneration framework.

  • Parliamentary Commissioner for Administrative Investigations;
  • Information Commissioner;
  • Inspector of Custodial Services;
  • Chief Executive Officer, Department of Education Services;
  • Director General, Department of Agriculture and Food;
  • Chief Executive Officer, Botanic Gardens and Parks Authority;
  • Chief Executive Officer, ChemCentre;
  • Chief Executive Officer, Rottnest Island Authority
  • Deputy Commissioner, Community and Juvenile Justice, Department of Corrective Services;
  • Deputy Commissioner, Adult Custodial, Department of Corrective Services;
  • Deputy Electoral Commissioner; and
  • Executive Director, Office of Government Procurement, Department of Finance.

Motor Vehicle Entitlements

27.   The Tribunal received advice from State Fleet that the majority of whole of life lease costs over the range of available vehicles have either remained steady or have decreased in 2012. Taking this into account, the Tribunal has determined no change to the notional whole of life lease value of the motor vehicle entitlement in this Determination.

Senior Legal Officers’ Positions

28.   The Tribunal is mindful of the salary pressures being exerted at lower classifications of senior legal officers within the Special Division of the Public Service by rates under the Public Service and Government Officers General Agreement 2011 which apply to legal officers under the Senior Executive Service. It is noted that salaries of officers pursuant to that agreement are to be increased by 4.25 per cent with effect from 12 April 2013. The Tribunal will monitor the situation to ensure that salary rates of senior legal officers within the Special Division properly reflect the higher levels of responsibility.

29.   In light of the new salary framework that has been implemented and in line with the general principles of responsibility, accountability and work value the Tribunal has adjusted the salaries of several designated senior legal officers to more accurately reflect the value of those positions.

30.   In this determination, the Tribunal has provided for an increase of 3.25 per cent in salary for Senior Legal Officers from 1 January 2013.

Court Registrars’ Positions

31.   The Tribunal has continued to determine the salary of Court Registrars at the same time as it has reported on judicial salaries.

32.   This determination reflects the salary awarded to the Court Registrars in the Tribunal’s determination of 23 November 2012 which is effective from 1 January 2013.

Director of Public Prosecutions

33.   The remuneration of the position of Director of Public Prosecutions has been determined in reference to the issues identified under paragraphs 29 and 30. An increase of 3.25 per cent has been determined by the Tribunal.

Clerks of the Parliament

34.   The Clerks of the Parliament requested in their submission a 9 per cent increase in salary. This request was based on the claim that:

  • The Clerks and Deputy Clerks have lost salary relativity with the Clerks Assistant salary since 2009; and
  • The Clerks and Deputy Clerks have lost salary relativity with the Clerks of other Parliaments throughout Australia since 2007.

35.   While the figures submitted by the Clerks were acknowledged, the Tribunal was also cognisant of the fact that despite the small drop in relativities between a Deputy Clerk and a Clerks Assistant since 2009, the Clerks and Deputy Clerks’ salary relativities have substantially increased since 2006.

36.   Over the same time period the salary of a Clerk has increased substantially compared with a Member of Parliament while a Deputy Clerk, who had previously been paid less than a Member of Parliament, has since 2006 received a higher salary than a Member of Parliament.

37.   The Tribunal has determined that no further increase, other than the general increase shall apply to the Clerks and Deputy Clerks of the Parliament.

Solicitor General

38.   The Tribunal previously determined the remuneration of the Solicitor General to take into account the right of private practice. The remuneration now determined has been adjusted in light of limitations on that right. The amount determined is expressed as the ‘total employment cost’ inclusive of superannuation and the value of a motor vehicle.

DETERMINATION

39.   In discharging its statutory duties, the Tribunal determines that a salary increase of 3.25 per cent be awarded for office holders in the Special Division of the Public Service, Prescribed Office holders and the Clerks and Deputy Clerks of the Parliament.

40.   Remuneration will be paid in accordance with rates and provisions set out in the schedules following which take into account other adjustments related to specific offices and office holders.

41.   The determination will now issue.

PART 4 – MOTOR VEHICLE BENEFITS

SECTION 1: GENERAL

1.1   In addition to the salary determined for the office holders listed in Part 3 of this Schedule, those office holders have an entitlement to a motor vehicle provided through State Fleet. The notional value of the lease (and all associated costs) per annum shall be the relevant value set out in Section 4 of this Part.

1.2   The vehicle (being part of the Government-owned State Fleet) should be managed in accordance with the policies and conditions established and amended from time to time by the Department of Finance (the effective owner of the State Fleet). Applicable terms and conditions are currently set out in the document “State Fleet – Agency General Agreement”.

1.3   A person holding more than one Special Division or Prescribed Office, shall be entitled to a motor vehicle or cash in lieu of a motor vehicle for one such office only, being the office classified or remunerated at the highest level.

1.4   An individual accessing a vehicle under this Part shall take due care of the condition and security of the vehicle. This includes responsibility for ensuring the vehicle is regularly serviced and maintained at government expense according to the manufacturer’s recommended specifications, and making arrangements for off-street parking at home, whenever practicable, with appropriate security precautions taken at all times. Any theft or damage should be reported to the Fleet Manager.

1.5   Motor vehicles leased for office holders under this determination or a previous determination of the Tribunal shall not be changed or cash in lieu taken prior to the expiration of the lease.

1.6   While the vehicle may be used anywhere in Western Australia at no cost to the individual, if the vehicle is driven interstate, the individual is liable for the cost of fuel and oil while interstate. Furthermore, if used outside of Western Australia, the custodian must be in the vehicle at all times that it is being used.

1.7   Should the officer choose not to use the vehicle, supplied through State Fleet, for business, or for travelling to and from work, but allows and authorises the vehicle to be used for private use during business hours by another family member or person, he/she is not entitled to access another government vehicle for his/her private use, including transport to and from work.

1.8   Should the officer choose to take cash in lieu of a motor vehicle supplied through State Fleet, it is not the Tribunal’s intent that this should result in additional government expense or an increase in the government fleet to provide transport for the office holder during business hours. The office holder is not entitled to claim a mileage allowance for use of their private vehicle for work purposes. Neither is he or she entitled to access another government vehicle for their personal use including transport to and from work.

SECTION 2: DETERMINING THE COST OF THE LEASE AND THE COST TO THE OFFICE HOLDER

2.1   The total lease cost of the chosen vehicle and accessories determined in this section, must be borne by the office holder. This includes the purchase cost of any accessories and the installation cost and removal costs if required, before disposal of the vehicle. No additional costs shall be incurred by the office holder as a result of fluctuations in lease costs during the specified term of the lease.

2.2   Where the total lease and associated costs of a vehicle and accessories in accordance with this determination is less than the relevant motor vehicle benefit determined in this section, the difference in the cost to Government is to be paid fortnightly as part of the office holder’s remuneration.

2.3   The method of determining whether an additional contribution must be made by the office holder or the surplus is to be paid to the office holder, shall be based on the notional lease cost to the Government of the vehicle sought (using the formula detailed below), compared with the relevant notional lease value determined for the benefit in this section. The cost at the time of entering into the lease is applicable.

2.4   The notional value of the vehicle benefit must include the lease cost, Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) and all other operating costs based on the relevant figure of nominated kilometres to be travelled annually. The formula to be adopted in valuing the motor vehicle is:

Value of Motor Vehicle = L + R + aD + FBT +I +LCT, where

 L = Lease payments
 R = Registration costs
 a = Running cost per kilometre
 D = nominated annual kilometres
 FBT = Fringe Benefits Tax
 I = Insurance
 LCT = Luxury Car Tax


2.5   FBT is costed at applicable Australian Taxation Office rates. For the year ending 31 March 2013, FBT is costed at purchase price (including GST) x Statutory fraction x Gross up (2.0647) x FBT rate (0.465).
Fringe Benefits Tax Exempt Agencies: Where an organisation is exempt from FBT in accordance with Commonwealth Government legislation, a notional amount equal to the standard FBT must be added to the cost of the benefit.

2.6   Each lease should be tailored to achieve the most cost-effective arrangement based on individual usage patterns.

SECTION 3: CHOICE OF MOTOR VEHICLE

3.1   Where an office holder elects to access a leased vehicle under State Fleet arrangements, he/she may choose any vehicle and accessories in the relevant Western Australian Government Common Use Contract or an “off contract” vehicle and accessories available under Government leasing arrangements in accordance with the following criteria.

3.2   Vehicles with V8 engines are not included. Supercharged and turbo-charged engines with a capacity greater than 3.0 litres are not included.

3.3   Office holders unable to lease their choice of vehicle within the scope of the arrangements set out in this determination should elect to make their own arrangements to meet their personal transport needs.

SECTION 4: CASH VALUE OF THE MOTOR VEHICLE BENEFIT

41.1   Where a person elects not to be provided with a motor vehicle through State Fleet he/she is entitled to the cash value being paid fortnightly as additional remuneration. The relevant cash value is to be determined in accordance with the following criteria:

Salary of Office Holder Cash Value
Below $246,397 p.a. $20,300 p.a.
Equal to or above $246,397 p.a. $22,650 p.a.

4.2   The cash value of a motor vehicle and the notional value of the motor vehicle benefit shall be calculated on a pro rata basis in accordance with the proportion of full-time hours worked by an office holder, subject to the employment being at least half of the full-time rate.

PART 5 – DISTRICT AND TRAVEL ALLOWANCES

SECTION 1: DISTRICT ALLOWANCES

1.1   Officer holders listed in this Section shall be entitled to applicable district allowances in accordance with the District Allowance (Government Officers) General Agreement 2010 and relevant provisions of the Public Service Award 1992 as at the date of this determination. Applicable FBT shall be payable by the relevant department or agency.

1.2   For the purposes of calculating the standard rate, dependant rate or partial dependant rate applicable under the District Allowance (Government Officers) General Agreement 2010, the standard rates set out in Table 4 below shall form the basis of the calculations unless and until determined otherwise by the Tribunal.

1.2   The rental subsidy shall be payable to GROH for the benefit of the office holders up to the specified value in Table 6, based on rates calculated using the Department of Housing 2012-2013 on-line rent calculator which can be accessed at: http://www.housing.wa.gov.au/currenttenants/governmentemployeehousing/rentcalculation/Pages/groh_rent_calc.aspx.

1.3   Applicable FBT shall be paid by the office holder’s department or agency.

1.4   Where the office holder’s tenancy is for a portion of the year, the maximum annual rental subsidy shall apply on a pro rata basis.

1.5   Office holders are to advise the Tribunal of GROH rent adjustments as soon as practicable after they occur. The Tribunal will ordinarily take these rent adjustments into account when conducting the annual review of remuneration for Special Division and Prescribed Office holders and when a new office holder is appointed.

Table: 6 RENTAL SUBSIDIES

Office Department or Agency Office Holder Maximum Annual Rental Subsidy
Director Gascoyne Regional Development Commission S Webster $13,000

2.2   The home ownership subsidy shall be payable for the benefit of the office holder up to the maximum specified in Table 7 below.

2.3   The subsidy shall be paid in accordance with and for the period specified in the relevant Home Loan Subsidy Agreement between the office holder and their Department or agency identified in Table 7 below.

2.4   Applicable FBT shall be paid by the office holder’s department or agency.

SECTION 3: ELECTRICITY SUBSIDIES

3.1   Office holders listed in this Section shall be entitled to claim electricity subsidies as specified in Table 8 below. These electricity subsidies are based generally on the air conditioning subsidies applicable under the Department of Housing’s Government Housing Air Conditioning Policy (October 2001).

3.2   Claims made under this Section must be accompanied by a tax invoice for electricity utilised at the residence ordinarily occupied by the office holder within the relevant Development Commission region where the office holder’s department or agency is located.

3.3   A claim for an electricity subsidy made under this Section must be submitted within 90 days of the due payment date of the tax invoice. In the case of exceptional circumstances, the administering authority may approve an extension of time to submit a claim. Any application made to the administering authority seeking an extension of time to submit a claim under this Section, should be in writing and explain the exceptional circumstances leading to the need for extra time to submit a claim. Exceptional circumstances for which an extension will be approved, will only be where the office holder has demonstrated that the claim submission has been delayed for reasons outside the office holder’s control or in circumstances where ill health or bereavement has prevented a claim being made on time. Where delays in submitting a claim have been due to administrative oversight or negligence, the Tribunal does not regard these as circumstances appropriate to grant an extension of time to submit a claim. Where a claim is made after 90 days and no extension has been granted, payment against the claim will not be made.

3.4   Applicable FBT shall be paid by the office holder’s department or agency.

PART 7 – SUPERANNUATION ENTITLEMENTS

SECTION 1: GENERAL

1.1   Employer superannuation contributions are payable in accordance with the obligations applicable under the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (Cth), the State Superannuation Act 2000 and the State Superannuation Regulations 2001 or the Fire and Emergency Services Regulations 1986, as the case may be, unless determined otherwise in this Schedule.

1.2   Superannuation contributions to the Gold State Super scheme are based on the concept of remuneration set out in Regulation 5 of the State Superannuation Regulations 2001. Contributions to an accumulation scheme, whether a GESB accumulation scheme or a scheme of choice, are determined by the concept of Ordinary Time Earnings (OTE) defined in the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992 (Cth) and ‘over OTE items’ as defined in the State Superannuation Regulations 2001. The Department of Treasury document titled Ordinary Time Earnings and the Treatment of Allowances and Payments for Superannuation Remuneration Purposes – General Principles provides useful guidance on this matter. The document can be found on the Department of Treasury web site at:
http://www.treasury.wa.gov.au/cms/uploadedFiles/_Treasury/State_finances/ote_treatment_allowances_payments_superannuation_remuneration_general_principles.pdf?n=1655.
