Since 6 February 2017, all non-SES staff were employed under IGIS Enterprise Agreement 2016-2019. Two SES staff members were employed under a section 24(1) determination.

The salary range available to APS employees in the office throughout the reporting period is provided at Annexure 5.1.

The only notable non-salary benefit for IGIS non-SES staff is a taxable annual allowance in recognition of the requirement to undergo regular and intrusive security clearance processes necessary to maintain a Top Secret Positive Vet clearance, as well as other restrictions placed on employees as a result of reviewing the activities of the intelligence agencies. The annual allowance was $1,125 until 7 February 2018 when the allowance increased to $1,148 in line with IGIS Enterprise Agreement 2016-2019 annual remuneration increases.


The office continued the internal training program introduced in early 2012. The program of short training sessions run regularly ensures that staff develop and maintain specialised knowledge and skills, and supplements on the job training. Topics covered in the reporting period included:

  • recent changes to legislation
  • complaints handling
  • ministerial authorisations
  • security awareness

Staff were also provided with regular opportunities throughout the reporting period to attend other training courses and seminars relevant to their roles. A studies assistance scheme is available to reimburse employees for approved courses of study.


The office does not have a performance pay scheme.
