Reserve Bank Board Remuneration Committee

The Reserve Bank Board Remuneration Committee assists the Reserve Bank Board set terms and conditions relating to the remuneration and allowances for the Governor and Deputy Governor in terms of the Reserve Bank Act 1959 and the framework for Principal Executive Offices determined by the Remuneration Tribunal. In doing so, the Remuneration Committee makes recommendations to the Reserve Bank Board on the remuneration of the Governor and Deputy Governor. The Committee is charged with ensuring that the Governor and Deputy Governor are remunerated appropriately to ensure the appointment of high-quality candidates to these positions.

In accordance with provisions of the Reserve Bank Act, neither the Governor nor the Deputy Governor takes part in decisions of the Reserve Bank Board relating to the determination or application of any terms or conditions on which either of them holds office.

The Remuneration Committee is also kept informed of the general remuneration arrangements for Reserve Bank staff.

Meetings of the Reserve Bank Board Remuneration Committee

The Reserve Bank Board Remuneration Committee meets at least twice each calendar year.
