Defence Pay and Conditions is a Defence People Group website.
With the commencement of the new Defence Enterprise Agreement two determinations were signed which allowed for the continuation of a number of conditions of employment for APS employees. The Determinations are as follows:
These Determinations are policy neutral.
This Determination amends the process that Reserve members must complete for the payment of the health support allowance.
These changes will be available in Chapter 4 Part 9 Division 3 on the date of effect.
This Determination makes the following changes.
This Determination provides an additional two tiers in the trainee salary rates for members who are participating in the undergraduate entry scheme completing a degree that takes longer than three years. These changes will be available in Chapter 3 Part 1 Schedule B.13 and Chapter 4 Part 2 Part B Division 1 on the date of effect.
This Determination provides a more efficient administrative process for publishing post indexes which are used to calculate a range of overseas allowances. This new process will automate the calculation of the post index figure for overseas postings and will remove the need for the monthly post index determination changes. These changes are available in Chapter 12 Part 3 and Chapter 15 Part 2, Part 2A and Part 3 Division 4.
This Determination provides that a member's contribution towards living-in accommodation is no longer affected bythe number of people the member shares a room with but the number of beds in the room. It also provides that a member is eligible for assistance for costs associated with entering a rental lease if they are eligible for rent allowance. These changes are available in Chapter 7 Part 4 Division 3, Division 4 and Annex 7.4.B, Part 8 Division 6, Part 9 Division 1, and Part 10.
This Determination sets out a range of reforms to leave that support the introduction of
a new ADF payroll system to be used in the Department of Defence. These changes are available in Chapter 5 Part 4 Division 3, Division 5 and Division 8 and Part 9 Division 5.
