I listened to your Chief Executive Andrew McDonald on radio 4 this morning and would like to know how many people are employed by IPSA and what are the salaries of the IPSA senior staff from CEO down please.
In the set-up and transitional phase of IPSA, there will be approximately 70 staff in place from April 2010 onwards. IPSA will conduct a thorough organisational review in the autumn to ensure that it is meeting business needs and operating in a cost effective and efficient way. Subject to the outcome of the organisational review it is expected that the number of staff will progressively reduce towards 57 by October 2010.
Details of senior staff salaries and a breakdown by pay band of junior staff salaries will be published in the IPSA Annual report which will be available in Summer 2010. This information is therefore exempt under Section 22 (Information intended for future publication) of the FOIA.
