The Aid Adviser Remuneration Framework (the Framework) defines DFAT’s policies and procedures for determining the remuneration of commercially contracted international advisers. The Framework requires that advisers are paid in accordance with the market-based remuneration rates and prescribed set of allowances outlined in this document. Benchmarked against other aid agencies and Australian labour market standards, the Framework ensures that adviser remuneration represents value for money and is appropriate to the type and level of technical expertise required for each particular task. This document explains how DFAT staff and managing contractors are expected to apply the Framework to their adviser engagements.
