Academic staff members are entitled (subject to procedures, and the Australian Universities Academic and Related Staff (Salaries) Award as varied from time to time) to progress annually within the salary range of the level of their appointments until the top salary point is reached. Incremental progression within levels A, B, C, and D shall be on the basis of satisfactory performance in criteria defined in the policy.

Each academic staff member submits an Academic Portfolio to his or her supervisor, who subsequently conducts a formal review with the staff member and provides a recommendation regarding approval for an increment. Increments for academic staff are effective annually.
