Annual Report 2016-17 | Department of Corporate and Information Services104 O U R PEO PLE Senior Administrative Officer Progression In accordance with the NTPS 2013-2017 Enterprise Agreement, annual pay progression for Senior Administrative Officers is based on performance. Officers employed in a senior classification (SAO1 and SAO2) are eligible to apply for pay progression after 12 months. Applications for pay progression must demonstrate sustained superior performance against the performance criteria. This process is tied to performance targets agreed upon through the annual MyPlan performance review process. In 2016-17, of the 80 Senior Administrative Officers within DCIS, eight officers (10%) applied for pay progression and were approved on the basis of demonstrated superior performance in their roles.
