Appendix 5

This appendix displays how the classification structure has been simplified over the past 20 to 30 years which includes for example, introduction of the Administrative Service Officer employment category which replaced over 100 separate office-based occupational classifications and 180 pay points between 1987 and 1990. Additionally, in 1998 the common APS-wide classification structure for non-SES employees as it exists today was introduced replacing 13 structures and 81 classification levels.
