DSTA procurement salary scheme anyone?

Unregistered 21-02-2013 04:30 PM

Definitely a great place to start your career.
Good starting pay, good increment.
If you are thinking about staying for a long time, good prospects too.

Unregistered 02-03-2013 02:24 PM

Does DSTA accepts 2nd lower hons for both procurement and engineering positions? Is it true that procurement position starts at a lower salary than engineers?

Thanks in advance.

let say someone with 2nd upper with NS join DSTA as an engineer at $3580 in year 2007 july.

how much will he be earning now by 2013 ??

how much will be his basic salary(after annual increment/promotion/wage adjustment if any) in 2013 after 6 years assume he is normal average performer?


any figure??

On an annual basis, should have crossed the 100k mark.

Average senior engineer pay is only around $4.3K at DSTA. Project manager average pay only $5250.......How to get 100K?

coming 1 month...no news for my application...:confused:

if really 100k with just 6 yrs exp, mean basic will be 100000/16 = $6250 assume annual is [12mth basic + 1aws + 3mth bonus]


wow hit 6k in 6 years with average performance thru out???



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

when a DSTA engineer promoted to grade 8 after 5 yrs from fresh grad, how much will be his basic salary(assume 2nd lower/upper with all average performance all 5 years)??

Like that analyse quite logical. I think is possible to reach 6k plus in 6 years. But I think like that will reach ceiling quite fast.

I think your figures are abit off for PM at least. It should be much closer to 6k. Including all the bonuses, it adds up close to 100k per annum.

DSTA project manager's basic is not the lower end of 5k.
It's the higher end.

From what I understand, dso/dsta/csit have the same pay scheme.

Don't worry. Maybe a blessing in disguise to you e.g. better career opportunities elsewhere. :)

Not exactly the same but close. Don't worry about the few hundred dollars difference, it's the passion and job satisfaction that can sustain you long enough to reach your max potential.

What I heard is DSTA > CSIT > DSO in starting pays. Progression wise not sure.

I'm surprised DSO pays the lowest when it seems to be the organization hardest to get into.

I think the earlier figures are correct but outdated.For the more recent hires, I believe there was some pay revision in the last few years, at least the starting pay did get increased by about 300. Maybe that's why the pay for PM is much closer to 6k now.
