Remuneration Reports and Gifts Register

Defence Housing Australia’s (DHA) remuneration arrangements are unique because it is the only Government Business Enterprise (GBE) to employ its staff under the Public Service Act 1999 (Public Service Act). As such, DHA is required to disclose employee remuneration in multiple forms.

As DHA is a reporting entity under the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) any remuneration disclosure must be in accordance with obligations under the Privacy Act. DHA is unable to publish information, which constitutes personal information under the Privacy Act, without written prior consent from the individual (or individuals) concerned, whether they are named or would be otherwise reasonably identifiable.

  2. Australian Public Service (APS) reporting
    On 16 May 2017, the Secretary of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C):
  • requested Heads of Statutory Agencies, including DHA, provide greater transparency of remuneration paid to substantive executives (Senior Executive Service employees) and highly paid officers
    (non-SES employees earning $200,001 or more); and
  • invited Heads of Statutory Agencies to publish information on their website each financial year using a suggested template that reports remuneration at an aggregate level, within dollar ranges (or bands) and shows the number of employees within each band.
