The process for appointing a chief executive officer to the Road Safety Authority is set out in the Road Safety Authority Act 2006.  Section 17(2) of the Act provides that the Board shall appoint the chief executive with the consent of the Minister.  

I understand that the Board of the Authority initiated a selection process with the assistance of the Public Appointments Service and that a decision on an appointment is imminent.
