                                           PROMOTIONS
PROMOTION or TEMPORARY PERFORMANCE APPEALS and INTERNAL REVIEW

Selection principles
All selection processes (including promotion decisions) must be based on a proper assessment of merit.
Merit is defined in the Public Sector Management Act 1994 (PSM Act), as the selection of a person on the
basis of an assessment of the relative efficiency of the several applicants having regard to:
     the nature of the duties to be performed; and
     the abilities, qualifications, experience, personal qualities and potential for development;

of the several applicants that are relevant to the performance of the relevant duties as the case may be.

Applicants are also entitled to fair and unbiased consideration of their job application.

Definitions
For the purposes of Parts 1 and 2 dealing with promotions or temporary performance appeals and internal
reviews:

‘appellant’ means a person who is eligible to appeal and lodges a promotion or temporary performance
appeal.

‘casual employee’ means a person engaged under section 110 of the PSM Act to perform work for a short
period on an irregular or non-systematic basis.

‘employee’ includes an officer, casual employee or temporary employee excluding Chief Executives and
Executives.

‘officer’ means a person appointed under division 5.3 or 5.8 of the PSM Act. An officer is a permanent staff
member of the ACT Public Service.

‘promotee’ means the person promoted to the position.

‘respondent’ means, in the case of a promotion, the person promoted to the position, or in the case of
temporary performance, the person selected for temporary performance of duties.

‘temporary employee’ means a person engaged under division 5.7 of the PSM Act (other than a Chief
Executive or Executive). A temporary employee is engaged under a temporary employment contract.

PART 1.        PROMOTION OR TEMPORARY PERFORMANCE APPEALS

A promotion occurs when an officer is selected and promoted to a higher classification than the classification
they hold before the promotion. Temporary performance occurs where an officer temporarily performs the
duties of a higher office for a defined period (i.e. a higher classification than they currently hold).

Generally, a promotion (made under section 83 of the PSM Act) or temporary performance (made under
section 101 of the PSM Act) is subject to appeal, where:
    the position is filled on
           o a permanent basis; or
           o temporary basis for more than 6 months;
    the officer was an applicant for the position; and
    the promotion/temporary performance is to any classification with a maximum salary that is less than
       the minimum salary of a classification equivalent to a Senior Officer Grade C.
An officer may also appeal a promotion if:
    the officer is a promotee, where the promotion is one of a number of promotions at the same level
        made in a selection process, and the officer believes someone may lodge an appeal against their
        promotion. The officer may appeal against all or any of the other promotees. These appeals are
        usually called ‘protective appeals’, and are treated the same as other appeals.

Any suitably qualified officer may also appeal a promotion if the vacancy that has been filled was not
advertised.

An appeal cannot be made where:
    a promotion decision is made by an unanimous recommendation of a Joint Selection Committee
      established under the PSM Act or agency Collective Agreements; or
    the position is filled from outside the ACTPS, i.e. an appointment (including filling the position by
      appointing a temporary employee); or
    the filling of the position does not constitute a promotion, such as if the position is filled by the transfer
      of an officer already at that or a higher level;
    the promotion is to a position which has a higher or equivalent maximum salary to the minimum salary
      of a Senior Officer Grade C. (These should be identified with a dagger symbol (†) in the ‘Promotions’
      section of the Gazette).

Grounds for appealing a promotion or temporary performance decision
Provided eligibility requirements are met (see above), an officer will be required to show that they are more
efficient in performing the duties of the position than the person(s) promoted or selected for temporary
performance.

Generally, the Appeal Panel will assess greater efficiency by considering:
   1. the abilities, qualifications, experience, standard of work performance and personal qualities of the
      appellant(s) and respondent(s) to the extent that the Panel considers that those matters are relevant to
      the performance of the duties of the position;
   2. if the Chief Executive or delegate who made the promotion or temporary performance decision had
      regard to the potential for further career development relevant to the position in making the merit based
      decision; and
   3. any other relevant matter the Panel considers relevant.

How to appeal a promotion or temporary performance decision
The appeal mechanism for promotion and temporary performance decisions is set out in Agency Collective
Agreements, which can be accessed from the Shared Services Internet site at:
http://www.sharedservices.act.gov.au/docs/agreements/

Promotion appeals must be lodged with the Convenor of Appeal Panels within 14 days of notification of the
promotion in the ACT Gazette. Appeals against temporary performance must be lodged with the Convenor of
Appeal Panels within 7 days of notification of the decision.

Shared Services Client Agencies

Officers of the following agencies must lodge applications for an appeal against a promotion or temporary
performance decision using the template on the Shared Services Customer Portal at
http://sharedservices/actgovt/HRforms/Appeal_Promotion_Temp_Performance.doc.

       ACT Planning and Land Authority;
       Canberra Institute of Technology;

       Education and Training;
       Health;
       Justice and Community Safety;

       Fax: (02) 6205 4629

Other Agencies

Officers of other agencies should contact their Human Resources area for advice on how to lodge an appeal
(see below for a list of contacts).

PART 2. INTERNAL REVIEW
Generally, employees can seek a review of management actions or decisions that affect them in relation to
their employment. There are some actions/decisions that are excluded from this right of review (e.g.
decisions on classifications of an office, promotions and transfers).

However, as employees are entitled to a fair and unbiased assessment of their job application, an employee
may seek an internal review about the process leading to:
    decisions that another employee perform the duties of a higher classification (with a salary less than
      that of a Senior Officer Grade C or equivalent classification) for periods greater than 6 months if the
      vacancy was advertised;
    decisions to promote, appoint or engage an employee on a temporary contract;
    decisions to transfer an employee within the Agency; or
    decisions to promote an officer to a non-advertised vacancy.

How to lodge an internal review
Agency Collective Agreements establish procedures for employees to seek an internal review of management
actions that affect them. Collective Agreements are available from the Shared Services Internet site at the
following link: http://www.sharedservices.act.gov.au/docs/agreements/

Employees should seek advice from their Human Resources area (see contacts below), or Shared Services
about internal review rights available under Collective Agreements and how to lodge a request for internal
review.

Shared Services can be contacted by dialling 99 from an internal phone or 6205 5444 or emailing
sharedserviceser@act.gov.au.

Eligibility to apply for advertised vacancies
PERMANENT VACANCIES

All permanent vacancies advertised in the Gazette are open to all Australian citizens or permanent residents1 of
Australia except where:
    the Chief Executive has decided that because of cost or operational efficiency a vacancy should be
     advertised as open only to permanent ACT Public Service officers and groups with eligibility rights.
     Restricted positions will be marked #
    a former officer of the ACTPS is restricted from re-employment under section 114 of the Public Sector
     Management Act 1994.
     Groups with eligibility rights are:
an officer of the Australian Public Service (APS) applying for appointment (see section 115 of the PSM Act)
a former officer of the APS or ACTPS who has resigned, if:
they resigned to rear a child, after taking at least three months maternity or parental leave; and
they resigned within two years of the date of birth of the child for which the period of maternity leave was
granted;
the position for which they are applying is advertised in the gazette within six years from the date of the birth
of the child for which the maternity or parental leave was granted; and
they have a statement from the relevant Chief Executive of the details of their resignation which was obtained
at the time of resignation;
an ‘officer’ of an approved organisation listed in Public Sector Management Standard 4, Part 6, Mobility with
Approved Organisations, employed on other than a temporary basis, applying for appointment;
a temporary employee who has been employed by the ACTPS in one job for six months continuously, may
apply for appointment to an advertised vacancy:
if still employed in that temporary job; and
the six months eligibility period is reached before the applications close.

TEMPORARY VACANCIES
Temporary vacancies are generally only open to permanent officers of the ACTPS. Some agencies may
accept applications from non-permanent employees for temporary employment to the position but these
applications will only be considered if no permanent officer is suitable or available (see section 106 of the
Public Sector Management Act) or if agencies do not wish to pursue a wider field of applicants. Agencies
may have also varied these processes under Certified Agreements. You should contact the relevant Personnel
section for advice on who is eligible to apply for the position.

EXCESS OFFICERS

ACTPS officers who have been formally declared excess and who apply for transfer to any advertised
permanent vacancy must be considered for in isolation from, and not in competition with, other applicants.
Where more than one excess officer applies, a merit selection process should first be conducted between the
excess officers.

Excess officers applying for transfer to advertised vacancies are not to be considered in competition with
applicants who are not excess.

The consideration of the excess officer(s) should be a genuine assessment of whether the officer is suitable for
the vacancy, including with reasonable training, and should be conducted in a manner demonstrably similar to
that which would apply to other officers if no excess officer had applied.

Should you have any queries in regard to this matter please contact your Personnel Section.
1
    The Standards provide that a New Zealand citizen who resides in Australia and holds a Special Category temporary residence visa (SCV) under the
    Commonwealth Migration Act 1958 is to be treated as a permanent resident of Australia for the purpose of assessing that person’s eligibility to be
    employed by the ACTPS. This means that applicants who hold a SCV will qualify under section 68 of the PSM Act for appointment to the ACT Public
    Service. Recognition of a SCV holder as a permanent resident only relates to the appointment of persons under the PSM Act, and does not affect a
    person’s residency status in relation to any other federal, state or territory law.

                    GUIDELINES AND AUTHORITY FOR STAFF BULLETIN

Including Guidelines for the placement of Whole of Government messages on the ACT
Government’s email Network

1.     The purpose of the Staff Bulletin is to provide timely and accurate information to ACT
       Government staff, which is of direct interest to them as an ACT Government employee, or
       alternatively information which is directly related to the activities of an ACT Government
       Business, Organisation, or Agency. The Staff Bulletin will be published on the ACTG e-mail
       Network every Thursday.

2.     Information which is appropriate for inclusion in the Staff Bulletin generally includes:
       - information regarding employment opportunities in the ACT Public Service
       - information about training courses which are conducted by ACTG agencies:
       - information about the activities of ACTG agencies.
       Queries about whether information is appropriate to include in the Staff Bulletin can be
       directed to the Manager, Publishing Services, on 6205 0261 or via e-mail.

3.     The format and content of information should enable the reader to understand the message
       and encourage contact with the information provider for more details. As a general rule
       graphical images should be minimised and content provided in summary form. Font size
       should be kept to 10 or 12 point.

4.     All material should be current and accurate, and be provided as a Microsoft Word 6 file to
       facilitate the Bulletin being broadcast in this format.

5.     Material should be accompanied by a completed proforma, including the name of the
       approving officer, and received via email at publications.act@act.gov.au by COB Tuesday.
       This will ensure it is included into the Staff Bulletin which will be published each Thursday.

6.     Requests for messages to be placed individually on the e-mail network will be considered
       on the basis of their justification, and every attempt will be made to keep their number to a
       minimum. Messages should be either urgent, that is cannot wait until the next available
       bulletin, or have a high level of importance to the majority of ACT Government employees.
