EIGHTY-FOUR PER cent of National Treasury Management Agency staff were paid bonuses for 2010.

RTÉ reports that 258 workers, including staff at NAMA, received an average of €7,700 in February of this year, representing bonuses due for 2010.

The average salary of a worker at the NTMA is €100,000, reports The Irish Times, and the bonuses awarded for 2010 amounted to almost €2 million.

Fourteen staff at the agency are paid more than a quarter of a million euro. NTMA’s nine most senior executives waived their bonuses for 2010. The chief executive had been due to receive a bonus of €240,000.
