Under the terms of the Public Service Agreement 2010-2014 (Croke Park Agreement), An Garda Síochána is committed to the replacement of paper payslips by providing members with electronic access to this information by December 2011. My Department is currently examining the technicalities involved. It is necessary to determine the most effective and efficient implementation approach, taking into account that the working environment of members of An Garda Síochána differs considerably from most other public servants who have ready access to computers and printers at their desks. The total cost of providing paper payslips amounted to €410,487 in 2010 and €203,131 for the year to date.
