The Panel is tasked to evaluate and make recommendations to strengthen the current pay determination and recruitment processes for Senior Public Servants. Minister McGrath secured the approval of Cabinet on Tuesday 29th March for the establishment of this Review Panel and work has proceeded since to establish it.
The Panel will be chaired by Dr. Donal de Buitléir, with Ms. Jenny Smyth and Mr. Bryan Andrews members of the Panel.
Minister McGrath commented:
“I am pleased to be in a position to establish this Panel tasked with reviewing the recruitment and pay determination processes in place for Senior Public Service posts. This review is critically important as it will ensure that the processes in place are open, transparent, and objective.
“I am delighted that Dr. Donal de Buitléir has agreed to act as the independent chair of the Review Panel with Ms. Jenny Smyth and Mr. Bryan Andrews accepting invitations to serve as members of the Panel.
"These appointments have the depth of technical knowledge and practical experience required to ensure that a robust and comprehensive review is undertaken. I look forward to receiving the output from the Panels work later in the year”
