Chief executive pay and benefits

The Queensland Government pays agency chief executives and some statutory authority chief executives a total remuneration package (TRP) comprising:

  • superannuable salary (at 88.69176% of TRP)
  • employer contributions to superannuation at 12.75% of superannuable salary.

The superannuable salary includes allowances for an executive vehicle and annual leave loading.
