Keeping records of new or revised broadbanding proposals submitted to the APSC

The request was partially successful.

Dear Australian Public Service Commission,

According to the Australian Public Service Classification Guide issued by the Australian Public Service commission, an agency with new or revised broadbanding proposals is required under the bargaining framework for APS enterprise agreements to consult with the Australian Public Service Commission (the Commission) to ensure that the proposals:

i) meet the APS Values and Employment Principles - relating to merit, community access to employment opportunities and leadership
ii) meet the APS legislative requirements - such as the Classification Rules
iii) are consistent with the bargaining framework for APS enterprise agreements. This includes that salary advancement for individuals within classifications and broadbands is subject to at least satisfactory performance.

Please provide any documents (including any record management protocols) that set out how records, including records of consultations of new or revised broadbanding proposals submitted to the APSC by other agencies, are to be maintained by staff members of the APSC.

I would also like to know how consultations between agencies and the APSC about new or revised broadbanding proposals are supposed to take place (e.g. in writing, orally, a combination of of the two etc). Please also provide any documents that set out the processes by which consultations between agencies and the APSC about new or revised broadbanding proposals are to take place.

Yours faithfully,

L Marsten
