Chief executives and certain high-level senior executives of public sector entities negotiate remuneration based on the role’s assessed work value, corresponding package band, and the candidates prior experience.
Pay and benefits packaging arrangements are aligned to one of the following remuneration frameworks.
The Queensland public sector chief executive (QPSCE) remuneration framework applies to public service Chief Executives (CEs) and some statutory entity CEOs on appointment.
On appointment, the Queensland Government negotiates 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.
TRP negotiations consider the role’s assessed work value; corresponding package band; and the CE’s (elect) prior experience.
TRP ranges are current from 1 September 2022.

SSO is an authentication process that allows you to access multiple services and applications with one username and password.
Most Queensland Government agencies use SSO. If your agency doesn't use SSO, contact your agency IT service desk and let them know you would like to use it.
Most government-owned corporates, non-government organisations, and statutory authorities do not currently use SSO. If your organisation doesn't use SSO, contact your IT service desk and let them know you would like to use it.
