Framework for executive classifications
The Framework for Executive Classifications provides guidelines for agencies preparing classification proposals for positions to be classified above level 8. The Framework also outlines the requirements and the standards agencies and the PSC are expected to meet.
The Framework for Executive Classifications provides an overview of:
- the key components of, and principles behind the quality framework for classifying Executive positions;
- a description of the classification system and job evaluation tool;
- the process and requirements for classifying SES positions; and
- There are also answers to frequently asked questions about the framework.
Agencies wishing to submit classification proposals to the Public Sector Commission must complete and forward the Framework Attachments:
- Attachment 1 - Executive Classification Cover Sheet
- Attachment 2 - Executive Classification Checklist
Following the engagement of Mercer (Australia) Pty Ltd, the need for agencies to independently engage an external consultant to prepare classification proposals should be minimised.
However, should an agency decide to seek the services of an external provider, any costs incurred are to be borne by the agency. These will be additional to the costs associated with the assessment process conducted by PSC which will be recouped from agencies.
Note: The Mercer CED tool is licensed by Mercer. No other consultant is licensed to use nor is trained in the Mercer job evaluation tool. To ensure ongoing quality assurance only Mercer consultants will be engaged to provide the classification assessments for SES positions within the sector.
