There are two agencies under the aegis of my Department, the Citizens Information Board and The Pensions Authority.

The Pensions Authority currently employs three temporary agency staff. These posts are specialist posts in the Regulatory Intelligence Unit covering data analysis and software development. The Authority is endeavouring to fill these posts on a permanent basis.

The Citizens Information Board employs three temporary agency staff. Two of these contracts will cease by year end 2019 while the third is due to cease on the 31st January 2020.

My Department does not employ people on an agency basis.
