There are four categories of fees payable to chairpersons and directors of Non-Commercial State Agencies. The applicable category is determined by the salary of the CEO of the body relative to certain Civil Service salary scales. In addition, the "one person one salary" principle provides that as a general rule public servants acting as chairpersons or directors of state-sponsored bodies do not receive additional remuneration for undertaking such duties.

With effect from 1st January 2010 the new rates currently are:





3€11,970 €7,695

4 €8,978 €5,985

My Department does not routinely record the job titles of each member of staff in the Non Commercial State Agencies. The number of Whole Time Equivalent (WTE) staff employed in the agencies is collated on a quarterly basis. The most recently available information, which relates to 31st March 2011 is provided in the table below. The proportion of agency funding allocated to payroll is not readily available. However, I have asked the agencies in question to supply this information directly to the Deputy.

Regarding the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB), Family Support Agency and the Ombudsman for Children's Office (OCO), the information requested is being collated and will be forwarded directly to the Deputy.
