ADF Member's Guide to PACMAN

What is the Member's Guide to PACMAN?

This Member's Guide provides simple, easy to understand explanations of the ADF Pay and Conditions policy contained in PACMAN.

The Member's Guide does not incorporate or make provision for members on a flexible service determination.

As of December 2018, it will not be added to or updated. The Digital Service Design team is currently working on researching and creating online pay and conditions information for ADF members and their dependants.


As the name suggests, this Member's Guide is designed as a guide to help you understand how your pay and conditions work. It is not a legal document. Therefore, if there is any conflict between the Member's Guide and Defence Determination 2016/19, Conditions of Service (and the Determinations made by the Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal), as compiled in PACMAN, PACMAN is the authority.

The Member's Guide doesn't cover all the topics listed in PACMAN and applies to domestic conditions of service only.
