I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the papers.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: I present another set of executive contracts. These documents are tabled in accordance with sections 31A and 79 of the Public Sector Management Act, which require the tabling of all director-general and executive contracts and contract variations. Today I present two long-term contracts, eight short-term contracts and four contract variations.

In tabling these contracts, I note that one includes an amount of remuneration above the relevant Remuneration Tribunal determination set in accordance with section 629 of the Public Sector Management Standards 2006. As members are aware, in mid 2013 the Public Sector Management Standards 2006 were amended to update the ACTPS executive contract framework and to extend the capacity to pay an amount above Remuneration Tribunal determinations in prescribed circumstances to include more than just directors-general. As part of that process, the standard form contract was rewritten and a decision was taken to include all elements of an executive's remuneration, including any amounts above the Remuneration Tribunal amount, in the relevant contract.

As a result, from 2013 these additional payments were included in the information tabled in the Assembly. This change from previous practice was done on our initiative in the interests of transparency.

Members would also be aware that the current arrangements for executive contracts are cumbersome and are under review as work continues to reform public sector employment frameworks more generally. The details of the contracts will be circulated to members.
