The National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) has 17 managers within a current total staff complement of 142.5. NSAI has reduced its headcount by 29% since 2008 and has recently been informed that it has a new target of 134 for the end of 2014.

Such reductions, at all levels of the organisation, cause difficulties. The NSAI is responding to this challenge through restructuring and, where appropriate, partnering with the private sector, as well as making essential business cases for the introduction or maintenance of critical skill sets needed to ensure that the organisation continues to properly fulfil its remit.
