The National Transport Authority (NTA) has delegated sanction from the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform (DPER) for 140 permanent staff during 2019, an increase of 26 staff on the number sanctioned for 2018.  The NTA also has 145 outsourced placements from third party service providers, which are necessary to deliver its strategic programme.

My Department is in discussion with DPER concerning a further increase in staff numbers in the NTA to support the delivery of its capital investment programme.
