Executive Remuneration Report

The NAIF is committed to provide transparency of our remuneration for executive and other highly paid staff. To this end, the NAIF (together with other Australian Public Service entities) has decided to disclose the remuneration of our executives and other highly paid staff, starting from the 2016-17 reporting period.

For the purposes of the reporting executives are defined as:

  • Chief executive officers and equivalents
  • Employees of an entity or company who:
    • make, or participate in making, decisions that affect the whole, or a substantial part, of the operations of the entity or company; or
    • have the capacity to affect significantly the entity’s or company’s financial standing or performance in achieving its purposes  (as defined by section 8 of the PGPA 2013); or
    • perform functions controlling operational activities, which directly impact the economic function and viability of the entity or company; and
    • have employment conditions  equivalent to Senior Executive Service employment conditions of service.

Senate Order on Government Agency Contracts

On 20 June 2001, the Senate agreed to an order (the Murray Motion) requiring each Minister to table a letter of advice for each reporting period, that each relevant agency administered by that Minister, has placed on the internet a list of contracts of $100,000 (GST inclusive) or more which are current or entered into during the previous twelve months (and certain other details). The Order was subsequently broadened to include corporate Commonwealth entities (which includes NAIF) from 1 July 2017.  Based on the information available as a result of reasonable enquiries undertaken by officers in the NAIF, the listed contracts do not contain any inappropriate confidentiality provisions.
