Executive remuneration reporting

As a Commonwealth Entity, ARPANSA must publish information detailing the scope and value of remuneration for executive and other highly paid staff on our website. This information is presented in two tables:

Table A: Average annual reportable remuneration paid to substantive executives during the reporting period

Table B: Other highly paid staff.

The following tables disclose the remuneration of ARPANSA's executives and other highly paid staff for the reporting period.

Table A: Key requirements/definitions

The ‘reportable salary’ column is prepared on a cash basis using reportable salary as defined as the sum of:

  1. gross payments (excluding bonuses)
  2. reportable fringe benefits (net amount)
  3. reportable employer superannuation contributions
  4. exempt foreign employment income

as reported in an individual’s payment summary.

The ‘contributed superannuation’ column is prepared on a cash basis using contributed superannuation as defined as follows:

  • For individuals that are in a defined contribution scheme (e.g., PSSap), 'contributed superannuation' should include the defined contribution amounts. This amount is typically located on the individual’s payslips, or
  • For individuals that are in a defined benefit scheme (e.g., PSS and CSS), ‘contributed superannuation’ should include the Notional Employer Contribution Rate (NECR) amount, Employer Productivity Superannuation Contribution (also known as the Productivity Component) and any Additional Lump Sum Contribution paid during the financial reporting period.

The ‘reportable allowances’ column is prepared on a cash basis using reportable allowances as is equal to the ‘total allowances’ figure as reported in an individual’s payment summary. Reportable allowances excludes any allowances already reported in the gross payments line in the payment summary.

The ‘bonus paid’ column is prepared on a cash basis-using bonus paid as is equal to the actual bonus paid to individuals during the reporting period and is a component of gross payments reported on the payment summary.
