What are MMAs not intended for?

The Middle Management Allowances (MMA) are not for:

MMAs are not to be issued by the level of performance of management duties. Where there are particular issues with the individual performance of management duties, then STCA clause 3.3.1 or 3.3.2 will apply.

The MMA allocation will not depend on people agreeing to undertake additional work.
