The Classification and Remuneration Framework for NSW Government Boards and Committees (the Framework), as announced in Premier’s Memorandum 2012-18, guides decisions about the remuneration of individual boards and committees. The Framework covers all boards and committees, except for Crown Lands Trusts, where appointments require Ministerial approval – either by Cabinet or directly by a Minister. The freeze to remuneration increases as announced in Premier's Memorandum 2012-18 is still in effect.
As part of the establishment process for new entities, Ministers are to consult the Public Service Commissioner to determine the appropriate classification (and remuneration) level for both paid and unpaid boards and committees covered by the Framework. Agencies advising Ministers should use the Framework to arrive at a proposed classification and remuneration level for the entity.
The Framework has five classification groups with various levels and criteria. The Framework includes step-by-step guidance to help you determine the appropriate group and allocate a board and committee into the appropriate level using the criteria.
