Since 9 March 2011, I have made 158 appointments to the Boards of Agencies under my Department’s remit. Of these 90 were within my discretion. 40 were as a result of a nomination process and 28 were by virtue of the office held and were not appropriate, therefore, for public advertisement. Of the 90 appointments made within my discretion, 54 applied through an advertised process. There is currently one vacancy on the Board of the NSAI.

The current position in relation to the composition and future vacancies in all such boards, may be accessed through the website , administered by the Public Appointments Service.

The tabular statement that follows lists the appointments made by me since March 2011 as requested by the Deputy.
